Nothing on the horizon, they are using the Montage as the Performance keyboard, it looks like. There has been no OS updates on the WEB site since 2011

I have the S90XS, bought it when it was first released as the best thing since sliced bread for live work. It seems that Yamaha just forgot all about it immediately after, you don't even see it mentioned in forums. Very dissapointed with Yamaha over this so my next master keyboard is not likely to be a Yamaha, I want something that has a future.

I must say that I'm not dissapointed with the performance of this board but the fact that support for it is non existant.

I'm confused by your disappointment. Specifically what support do you feel is lacking?

Perhaps you're unaware of the support that is available...
Is the Operating System (firmware) of your S90 XS the most recent? To check and/or update:

Numerous downloads for the S90 XS:

Thanks for your reply it was very helpful. Perhaps I used the wrong term when I said 'Support', what I really meant was that it's hardly ever mentioned in any keyboard forums that I have subscribed to.

I was definately unaware of a few of the resources you have listed so will check them out.

Thanks again.
