Ok, so nothing revolutionary from Korg. I thought the LP-380 would be discontinued as the C1 is pretty much the same piano, but there's now an "LP-380U" with USB audio and MIDI.

Yamaha DGX-670 (with actual new features showcased on YouTube) and Yamaha CLP 725 (already rumoured, now official) were mentioned in some of the older discussions here. And we have a dedicated topic for the new Rolands.

Too bad that there's nothing new from Kawai. I was hoping they would release a VPC2 or a MP12.

... or the successor of the MP7SE frown Kawai has renewed now their whole lineup except the MP series, the VPC1 and the ES110

Also, there is nothing new from Nord until now frown

Let's hope that both Kawai and Nord will show new stage pianos on Wednesday.

My high hopes for this year is ATX4 with CA79/99 components/software for the hybrids silent pianos from Kawai and also to remove the touchscreen from the side panel oh the acoustic pianos. But I think I’m hoping for a bit to much. ☺️ But considering the Kawai grands still have ATX2 some updates feels due.

Traditionally, it seems that there is usually a year or so gap between the ES release and the MP

I thought the LP-380 would be discontinued too, as the C1 has a newer, supposedly better sound engine and Bluetooth audio, & different voices to choose from ( ex. bass/piano split). Instead, Korg adds Bluetooth audio *plus* Bluetooth midi to the LP-380, and expands the color choices. Bluetooth audio is nice on occasion. (I'd prefer a Line In jack.) But Bluetooth midi would be great to have.

Baffling. But maybe the LP-380 is still a big seller still in the Asian markets. I see that it has more temperaments to choose from than the C1, & some of those are Eastern tunings unavailable in the C1. Korg must be tossing a cookie to that market.

Give it time. Typically at big trade shows, only one or two manufacturers announce their BIG products each day, usually at a keynote or other big presentation. Press embargoes often lift the previous day. (For example, we saw all the new KORG products yesterday, but their announcements are today.)

Of course, it looks like Kawai is NOT a participant in NAMM this year.

Midi implementation of the fp-x series wasn't yet available online from Roland. Think they will support MIDI 2.0 now or in future firmware upgrade since that is a topic they are now promoting...?

Hmm.. that's surprising. Usually, they are at NAMM (in person event) every year.

It’s a distraction, you guys!

Kawai is waiting till the last minute for us to think nothing new is coming....and then, the NV-20 and all heck breaks loose!

Hammond's new SK Pro looks pretty cool. (a more affordable do-it-all-without-backache-not-red alternative)
& I wish Yamaha had made the new YC-73 with a waterfall option like the YC-61.

My VPC1 has been in the shop with a sticky key since I bought it a few months back. They'd better not release a VPC2 :p

Yes, one member above suggested they are holding it for the end of the show and are gonna present NV20 as well as many other new products. At least that's my understanding from what that guy said. Might have gotten it wrong though.

I saw this. But that doesn't say anything about if he knows whether Kawai and Nord are taking part in the Believe in Music show.

I see no evidence of Kawai at the show. Yamaha e-logos are everywhere (they've somehow managed to associate entire product lines with Yamaha!), but no sign of Kawai anywhere, no matter how hard I searched. And I did search for them!

Nord participates, Kawai does not: https://attend.believeinmusic.tv/marketplace

Kawai will probably wait till the Summer 2021 NAMM Show in CA.

Kawai doesn't have to wait for anything, as they make many of their announcements without reference to this or similar shows. So, for example, MP7 and MP11 were announced in March 2014, SE versions in October 2017.
