As we near the New Year, and the Winter NAMM 2013 show is close by.
I wonder if we will see something very exciting from :
YAMAHA, ROLAND, KORG, and KURZWEIL ?
What are your expectations as far as these manufacturers are concerned ? Will any of them offer something Awesome, and Revolutionary enough to take HW-Synths to the next level ?
or ... Are we going to see the same old recycling routine, with either downgraded, cheaper versions of existing products, or a few added bells and whistles to their existing products = Nothing too exciting to look forward to.
Your Thoughts, Expectations, Are you feeling Optimistic or ... ?
Cheers, and an Early Happy New Year to All KVR Members,

Now, I wouldn't mind gigging with a laptop, utilizing some of my softsynths, but I would absolutely want to control them from a proper hardware workstation and using the sounds that the workstation has as well, like the Kurzweil PC3K8 I have.

Then again, that trend has been changing for a long time. My Akai S6000 is custom hardware and OS but had a fan and hard drive. And admittedly, my Roland V-Synth XT and Korg M3M are slow to start due to moving sample content from storage to RAM, even though they're custom OS and (noiseless) hardware.
But when I turn on my Alesis QS8, it's just ON. BAM! No loading. Right where it was when it was turned off. Sigh. Technology is moving backwards...

It won't be long before we either get excited, or disappointed again

They are not complete ports, versions on OASYS and Kronos do NOT sound exactly the same as their VST counterparts. There's more detail into them.
