Hi, I just found this :

http://www.yu-midi.org/forum/showthread.php?t=31412

When translated by Google, this gives:

“The new model / series of Yamaha's arrangements is coming out at the end of 2020. It's a compact version of Genos, and he's guessed he would have:
touch screen
1Gb rama
jostick
Revo Drum
two Live Sliders
61 key ...”

Interesting   8)
Past keyboards: PSR E313, PSR E413, PSR E433, PSR S550, DGX 640, upright piano.
Now: DGX 650, Casio CT-X800.

Cool, is it the replacement for s670 or s975?
For the amount of ram memory (1gb) it should be s975.

I think Jeremy See was just talking about it being a replacement for the PSR-S670 because that model hasn't had a replacement for it released yet, whereas the PSR-S970 and PSR-S770 have (the PSR-S975 and PSR-S775). If the rumors about the PSR-SX are correct, then it might be reasonable to expect that there will be more than one model, such as an SX300, SX400, and SX500, or something like that-- obviously these are model numbers that I've made up as examples, so they almost certainly do not exist, since no one but Yamaha knows how many different PSR-SX models there will be and what model numbers they will be known as.

Hi :

Nothing is impossible but, if this new S-serie or whatever it will be called, is only available as of at the end of 2020, it sounds strange to me all these spec's are already on the street.👂

As long as Yamaha are not talking about these successors, it is hard to believe these new arranger keyboard's names and spec's are real and correct, IMHO.

Plse remember all Yamaha employees and dealers are absolutely not allowed to give any information.
Up to now this policy has always been
respected ( to whom it may concern ).

But ... speculations will always be available.

I like Bing's translation:

"Rumor has it that at the end of 2020. A new model of Yamahinih Arrans comes out. It is a compact version of Genos, and it is speculated that you would have:
Touchscreen
1Gb RAM
The Jostick
Revo Drum
Two Live sliers
61 button..."

Emphasis should be on "Rumor has it" and "it is speculated." :) Sometimes these rumors turn out to be correct, but sometimes they turn out to be only a little bit correct and a lot incorrect. The thing is, if there is any truth to the part about "at the end of 2020," then we're going to have to wait a long time before Yamaha is ready to unveil it and release any solid, factual information about it. Indeed, if it really won't be ready until the end of 2020, then we might not get any solid information until the opening day of Winter NAMM 2021.

Hello Babette, if I remember correctly in another thread Eileenl said that at the end of this year we would see a future replacement of the S775 / S975 series. I particularly think that if the new PSR-X or whatever is released this year, it will be between mid-September and October. Greetings. Hans

Did I miss something?  Where is a model PSR-SX300 mentioned in this video?  I believe that photo shows a prototype PSR-SX900, which would be numerically logical for a PSR-S975 replacement.  It would be cool if there was, say a PSR-SX300 or SX400 to replace the PSR-E363 and E463 keyboards, but I didn't see any mention of that.  My guess is that if Yamaha continues with what they appear to have started with the PSR-E360, then the replacement for the PSR-E463 just might be called the PSR-E560, but we'll see.  It's just a lot of fun speculation for now.

Well, the photo is so low-res that it is hard to tell... but you must be right, PSR-SX900 seems more logical...

On the other hand, I think that the PSR E360 was a “one shot” and that the whole PSR E line will also get a complete refreshment, which would explain why there were no PSR E273 and 373 this year.

By the way, to stay in line with the PSR-SX replacing the PSR S series, one would assume that the PSR E series would then be rebranded PSR-EX or whatever... Oh man, I’d be dying to put my hands on a future PSR-EX400...  Now who said “speculation”?  ;D ;D ;D

I was also unsure of the model number, and thought it might be 900-- but I think there's a slightly better copy of that photo somewhere, in which it's more clearly seen to be 300. The blurry copy may not be as good as the original due to having been rescaled or recompressed when being inserted into a YouTube video.

Edit: I can't open the JPG attached to the Yu-MIDI page linked above, because I'm not a member, but its file size is nearly twice the size of the JPG in this thread-- 71.0 kB versus 41.76 kB.

Hi Hans :

The release of a new S-serie ( or another brand name, who knows ) at the end of this year might be possible.

I do not want to speculate. Wait and see.

It looks like the pitch band and modulation will be banned and we'll have a joystick.
It also appears that it is selecting a function directly on the display. So we have a touchscreen display.

I agree with what you are saying.  It doesn't make much sense that the new SX series replacement for the S975 would only have 2 faders/sliders or 2 knobs.  How about 4 knobs plus 4 faders, and maybe the 1.6GB of expansion memory ported over from the Genos. I would welcome a joy-stick too.

We will just have to wait and see.

I still think it might be either, although 900 seems somewhat more likely due to the middle line being longer than the bottom line, and for a 3 the middle line is usually the shortest.

I also think that the person touching the instrument is clearly touching either the body or a button to the bottom right of the screen, and not touching the screen, so it doesn't suggest a touchscreen as is being speculated.

You can not see much, but I think you're right.
I hope this PSR comes with a lot of news and inspired by Genos.

Yes, you can clearly see the reflectiveness of the screen, then the dark edge around it from the body of the panel being elevated above the screen, and the finger is clearly touching the keyboard well beyond the edge of the screen, in the area that would be where the Registration buttons are on a PSR-E4xx.

EDIT: Also, I'm definitely thinking the number is 900, not 300, because both the upper and middle horizontal strokes are longer than the bottom stroke, so even if it's somewhat unclear whether there's a vertical stroke connecting the left ends of the upper and middle horizontal strokes (and it does look like there might be), it's most likely a 9 rather than a 3.

Sorry for the multi-posting but apparently the site alleging since July 4 that the picture first appeared on this forum (???) is this Polish one:

http://www.vsti.pl/forum/instrumenty_klawiszowe/21355-yamaha-psr-sx900-czyżby-następca-psr-975.html#25333

Here is a Google translation of the text:

“On the PSR tutorial forum you can find the following photo which pictures allegedly another model on which the company Yamaha PSR sx900 works

the instrument has to have a touch screen, however, that is a bit smaller than in the genos model. The joystick used will be exactly the same as in the nose, the amount of sample memory should be 1 GB. On board you will also find revo sounds, additional styles and sounds
The reference book does not provide any additional data about new functionalities.
The instrument housing is to be made of a plastic keyboard. Probably the same as in PSR 975 without aftertouch.
The buttons are highlighted in blue

The alleged date of release is October 2020 In my opinion, if the information is true, the premiere of the instrument will take place at least a year earlier.”

I wished all this were true, but I am wondering whether someone is not having a lot of fun on our cost???

Hi Vinciane :

If all the specs and the look of the new S975-serie should be correct, why should Yamaha not change the lousy quality of the present S975 keybed ?  ;)

Consumer Price ? At least present S-price + 25%, I guess.

76 keys ? No way.  ;D
Many Genos features and a touch screen ? No way !

ONLY SPECULATION AND FAKE INFORMATION ! :) :) :)

I think it can be fun to speculate about upcoming models and firmware updates, and it can be fun to talk about new features we'd like to see in future models and firmware updates. But it can also lead to a lot of grief, either by arguing with others about suggested changes, or by getting our hopes dashed when the new model or firmware update doesn't have everything that speculation and rumors had led us to expect.
