Summer NAMM 2015

Recommended Posts

Summer NAMM 2015 is July 9, 10, 11 in Nashville at the Music City Center. Like always, Saturday (the 11th) will be "Industry Day" - which means anyone with $10 (advance) or $20 (door) can attend. Online tickets can be purchased here. 

If you are within driving distance of Nashville and have never been, it's definitely worth the trip. It's a MUCH smaller show than the LA NAMM show, but that leaves more time for hanging and checking out the area. Plus... there's SWAG!!!!!!! blush.gif

I will make sure to get plenty of photos and videos from the Casio booth for those that can't make it! I may get have some goodies for giveaways here in the forum!

Umm I got here and there on the web and this guy said.

Physical modelling anyone going to ride the would be rumor train for this cause

I don't want to burn for speculating that far ahead. 

 

Well Casio already uses physical modeling of sorts in the Privias with the AiR engine so who knows?  One thing I have learned from Casio products: "Be ready for anything!" -- You never know what they are going to come up with next!

Yamaha released the Reface four products small key form factor have to admit they are pretty awesome!.

Fits nicely with the current scene live performance with small synths rocking it out.

 

 

So and the CGP-700 is also out Multi Expressive Integrated sound source  :blink: for the Compact Digital keyboards.

Where expecting at least a portable mini key's like the SA46 but then in  XW format. *sigh

This new CGP-700 sounds a lot like XW-Addict's reference to Technics:

"The CGP-700 also incorporates a unique 3-way sound system with 40 watts of total amplification. Four speakers are located in the top of the CGP-700 which provides a rich stereo experience, and two additional speakers are located in the included stand, to provide the low frequencies to handle instruments like bass and drums with ease."

Go figure ,Its still a surprise and baffling cause for a part it seems like it but then its not something of a fixed picture. Its just like the XW synths it isn't a workstation but performs like it, Or the PX5 a piano/synthesizer with performance capability's . But above all that they do give strong performances once you figure them out. A small part to overcome.

 

Every new addition also gets improvements and significant upgrades it seems. And true the CGP-700 sounds good, Wonder how the PX560 would cause that ones specs raises eyebrows seems to be build as a workstation. Hard to claim tho by specs alone but one thing sure these keyboard are a whole different game targeting several markets  home use , study and stage. Price not lying about it neither ^_^.  The though of wishful thinking for a workstation synth I think keeping for myself Casio way to surprising guessing that right :) .  

 

Expected an XW-SA type keyboard for travel tho :(
