I am sure it is the new VPC2 manual which now demands his full attention. When you consider all of the forum suggestions for the upgrades from the VPC1, it may take him months.

It may be the Kawai engineers have entered an infinite loop, first adding a slider wheel to the VPC2 demanded by so many, then removing it again due to numerous indications towards that direction, and then starting over again. Only logical way to resolve this is to have an additional "separate numpad" kind of box you can tape to the side of VPC2 if you like. Or maybe an extending side panel?

But back to the topic, I hope as well that James is fine. It might be just a holiday or busy working with new product (krhm NOVUS10 krhm) and related materials. He's doing a superb job here at PianoWorld forums, and I hope the Kawai brass knows it!

I think he is a very classy guy and asset to his company.

Venturing a guess I'll go with there are official product announcements which are imminent. And neither Kawai nor James wants him in a position to be faced with questions where his answers -- or lack thereof -- frustrate people. I expect to see him return after the official Novus and CA97 announcements.

Just wild speculation on my part, however.

I can only hope that James is on holiday and spending time with his family and loved ones... I have this image of them at a beach resort in the south of India without a digital piano in sight. smile

I think I've figured it out - he's been banned for being over polite. wink

My bet is corporate quiet period shortly before new product announcement.

Oh my ...

K James on Holiday from PianoWorld. With a few new products to create documentation for, the carpet between his cuney. marketing, engineering and service, must be pretty thin. Not to mention the simultaneous translation into other languages.

I believe he does this forum a good. He certainly knows product versions and featuresets and such. He also comes to Kawai' defense quite well.

The other mfgr's, would be served well by having similar folks monitor this Forum.

I too like Kawai James and miss him.

But, speaking about missing Piano World members, where is Morodiene?
Haven't seen her in Piano World for quite awhile, it is unfortunate, she definitely was a key member here IMO.

Morodiene and James usually have a stronger presence in the forum, but I suppose they're just taking a break. We do tend to beat around the same bush over and over: this action over that one, my pivot is longer than yours; and the most popular, modeling vs. sampling.

I've never seen James answering on weekends or outside business hours. Which makes me think his presence here is more or less part of his job and therefore I don't believe he just got bored and decided to take a break. He's rather on vacation. Hopefully.

Morodiene is here, but not in the digital forum. Mostly in adult beginners.
