I hope to see the PSR-970 replacement...then I can decide to do Genos or IT?????
Of course I know the Genos will still be much more and more likely a better keybed...but,,,,I want to see what the new PSR is before deciding how much to spend...

Will be anxiously waiting to see if it does appear.

Looks like only an incremental update this time. The new PSR-S775 and PSR-S975 are on the Yamaha Latin America site right now:

So its basically an S970 with a "plus" button added into the style and sound panels for easy access to expansion voices that have been included... Oh and Half bar fill-in and Mono legato function...LAME! we waited 3 years for this??

Or they want you to buy a Genos $$$$$.... Yamaha doesn't want to shoot themselves in the foot...

At Gearslutz there is another Yamaha Rumor going around about a Motif XF workstation replacement..

KorgĀ“s CEO hinted for a new Korg at Namm, with a name 8 letters and starting with a P

Roland has also hinted for something major and sensational in 2018, but no word if that is going to make the Namm.

Akai will be there with an 88 controller for VIP

and Casio will finally show their PX/5S follow up



So far for rumors and predictions i found on the worldwide webs

Bachus, well, TommyF did provide links to an official Yamaha's page above, so, I guess, no fakes this time. By the way, I believe that Yamaha used a term "ultimate PSR" for earlier models, so they just keep the pattern.

Thanks mate, i definately missed those links...
Looks legimate indeed

Altough just a minor update as far as i can see
But then the 970 allready has many of the new Genos features..

Maybe this new model will make people decide to buy the Genos
Instead of longer wayting for a PSR that would be truely a Tyros/Genos offspring
I personally didnt expect to see new PSR instruments this year

The s970 allready has the latest yamaha tech inside, the same as the Genos... so not really to sell of old parts, i guess..

Well if you want 76 keys it's a Genos, if you want 61 it's a PSR , cuts down choices a bit.

Thats really thumbing down the genos technology alot comparing them equal 61/76...there has to be much more then that inside..? question is why would someone buy a S975 vs a S970?

No, I'm not saying they are equal, or even close, it's just that if you want 76 keys then it's a Genos. I think that we have to make a choice. Is the Genos worth a
Lot more money. I don't think there is a right or wrong, it's what is best for us personally. I have a PSR which has served me we'll and I have a Genos on order somewhere between the UK and China. I hope.

I think the correct question would be why would someone buy a S975 vs a Pa1000?

I really see no other value of releasing a S975 NOW.

at least Yamaha made some nice pictures





Usually Yamaha pictures their keyboards on stages, now they got more realistic. Korg and Roland displayed such scenarios as well long ago:




let's say that it's not the worst photoshop ever )))

Generally, I see some mixed message with the numbers of new PSR's (I mean 775 and 975), I didn't expect such a move.

Seems Roland is best at following the changes in our society.
Because there is a reason why Roland is no longer making workstations and top end Arrangers. Even the former Roland Europe (Decibell), which was known for their arrangers never created an arranger so far.

An interesting point. Indeed, the former employees of Roland Europe at Dexibell who produced great arrangers such as the VA7, G70, or E60 hasn't introduced any arranger. I know this sounds odd in terms of "following the changes in our society" as you mentioned, but there's a possibility that they might build digital accordions.

Looks like Akai will have a replacement for their MPD 200 series..
Old models are sold out and obsolete..

If they integrate them with both MPC as well as VIP software
It could be a perfect addon for anyone that wants to add software to their setup

Follow the latest NAMM news at

http://keyszone.boards.net/posts/recent


Offcourse NAMM is not the place for arranger news
But there is quite a lot general keyboardnews pre NAMM

Like the Korg prologue
Or the Arturia Minibrute 2


The forum just had its first anual celebration
And has become more of a news site then a discussion forum
But i guess thats okay for now..
