It might be useful to consolidate information in one thread, so here goes.

If you have links to new DPs, Synths etc., please post them.

Here's the new Studiologic Sledge:

What the...?

Dude, I thought the post about it in the other thread was joking or expressing wishful thinking (it doesn't seem to be in their list of annoucements). The NU1 is a real thing. Interesting and surprizing!

Looks like it would weigh almost as much as an acoustic upright, though. Trying to take on the CS6/CS9 I guess.

For the gigging piano player, it looks like Nord is the only one with anything new (and even then, there's not really anything new in its piano functionality). Nothing from Roland, Kawai, Kurweil, Yamaha, Casio, Numa, or (apart for new cosmetics) Korg. Unless I've missed something, or there's something that hasn't been reported yet. (Casio does have some interesting new boards, but not in the piano realm.)

I agree, but it is the kind of update the red-haters would have liked from Nord!

Somewhat OT (SN drums):

Is it my imagination, or is Roland the only company doing any real innovation lately? It's products like this that really get me excited about synthesis again.

What, no new key grease? I guess we're down to mostly just funky new paint jobs this NAMM.

Yes, new sound systems from Roland. They were required to be honest. The HP-307 doesn't really sound that great from the player's perspective. But SN and PHA-III remain just the same (no bad thing of course).

A sign of conservative financial times, perhaps? It is pretty underwhelming. There isn't one product I'm excited about yet.

The LX15 has just joined the short list. Youtube sound etc etc but this is an impressive demo:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=CNmuFEo0X8w

and the early piano sounds could be a useful advantage over my first choice V-Piano.

From what I can hear, it sounds very nice. I do wish they could shut up for more than the last three or four seconds. Why do they never want us to hear their instruments properly?

+100000

I hope / expect they will use the performance as an audio demo later. Roland aren't bad when it comes to audio demos but their videos are cheesily dire.

It's Debussy, but yeah, that voice was so annoying.

It's amazing to me that Roland has made the LCD screen even smaller than the LX10F. It will be very fiddly trying to use the piano designer with such a crappy screen. (menus/pages! Ugh! mad )
