Next Yamaha Arranger Keyboards
« on: January 22, 2024, 01:58:49 AM »
Yamaha keyboards, next list.
Genos3 will have an 88 note keyboard and maybe some modified voices and styles. No point in putting in more styles, less is best.
SX910 will be based on the present Genos the main thing will be the inbuilt speakers but still with a 61 note keyboard.
SX950 will be based on the present Genos the main thing will be the inbuilt speakers but with a 76 note keyboard.
Anything more in the production line (creating new styles and voices etc) will be getting away from the home keyboard arranger.
Just my opinion.
Denn.

They canít meet the demand for Genos 2, Genos 3 is so far away you would need the Hubble telescope to see it.

For me it is important when Yamaha support the current arrangers for longer with updates and new functionality.
I think next year they will release new arrangers.

The SX series has to stay at 61 keys to be portable for gigs and the built in speakers are fine as they are my monitors. I already have purchased my separate PA system, I don't need Yamaha to provide that for me.

Personally I think that the new SX series will be released in mid-2025

Surely it will come with G2 features, and others typical of the update

I'm curious in regard of current SX900/700 owners... What would be your reason that would move you to buy the successor? In sense: "if it won't have this, then I'm not switching" or "if it will have this, then I'm switching" -by keeping wishes reasonable  :)

The one upgrade from the SX700/900 that Iíd really like to see is XLR mic input with phantom power. That would eliminate the need to bring a mixer when gigging as a solo singer/keyboardist. Harmony would be nice but not essential.

I brought the Genos 1 but had to return it because of a defect in the key bed. Now that my curiosity of owning a Genos has subsided, Iíve decided to hold off for a while to see when and what the next sx900 or pa1000 upgrades will be.

My keyboard is over 10 years old now. I will buy what ever the next PSR/SX model has on it.

At this point, I'm an easy sale.  ;D

I'd love to see an enhanced chord looper, with full editing abilities, quantizing, etc.

Hi Bogdan

I think Yamaha will learn from the recent late introduction of the G2 that buyers want more information PRIOR to making purchasing decisions based on fact. What were they selling  Why the secrecy?
There was too much hype, and FAR too much delay

As a result I think that's why many of us migrated to the Pa5X.

I've got 2xSX700's. Will I replace them. No.
The reason is simple. They do what I bought them for. I made a good decision. They are the perfect arranger keyboard. As is my Pa5X.

hello Keith,
I think that Yamaha achieved the only goal that they had in mind: to crank up Genos sales (at least for certain period of time) -and so there's nothing for Yamaha to learn.
It's probably because I need to be careful with my expenses, but I really can't understand those who make purchase at the day of introduction -because not only initial price is usually blown up, but also because we don't know the whole truth at that time. Well, we all make our decisions and we must live with them.

I agree with you about SX700: it has the best price/performance ratio. But that might depend on where we live... I've heard that in USA, price difference between SX700 and SX900 isn't that big as here in Europe and so SX900 is probably better choice there.

Will I buy SX700 successor? Depends.. but I will for sure be very picky at my decision. For example, I want a proof that it has better keybed (current keybed quality is embarrassing). But my wish is, to step a bit higher and here I can only see Pa5X 61key right now -but only if Korg fixes existing OS issues till I save enough money. Luckily, I'm patient  :)

I donít think it matters which new model you are talking about, buyers upgrading to it from the previous Ďsameí model are a minority. So the answer to your question is fairly moot. Basically there are seldom enough reasons for anyone to jump to the successive model.
Most sales come from from people with no arranger at all, people with much older arrangers, people with much lesser models looking to upgrade, or people with other brands looking to change.
And I agree with you that there is no evidence for Divemasters point that Yamaha somehow screwed up the launch of Genos 2 and sales suffered. I think they are probably getting the sales they expected.

hi Mike,
..Basically there are seldom enough reasons for anyone to jump to the successive model.
-I agree with you.
What moved me to that question was because of the fact, that some have jumped from Genos1 to Genos2 and so I was curious in what case SX owners would do the same.
I did switch from PSR-S775 to it's successor, SX700. Main reason was touch display and three RH voices -and I don't regret my decision a bit.

Greetings,
Bogdan

TOTL replacements are a bit different, in that there is nowhere else to go, the latest will pretty much always be the best that is available, even if that Ďbestí is not that much of an improvement. And there are a number of enthusiasts who always want to be at the sharp end, lined up to buy, almost regardless.
 If they can afford it, why not.
But if you look back at some of my posts during the build up and all the speculation, I did say that I expected many to be a bit disappointed with what eventually emerged. Not because I knew anything, or had any inside knowledge - but because successive models have always had more modest improvements than people seem to expect, and those expectations had also grown exponentially due to the bigger time gap in releases. So it was inevitable that many would express disappointment.

In possession of the SX900 at the moment.  I generally move up to the next upgrade if---

1.  To my ear and liking there is a noticeable improvement in voices, styles, and overall sound
2.  Price is manageable
3.  Able to sell what I have (Iíve had good luck with that)
4.  And, simply, the enjoyment of a new toy for making backing tracks and live play
5.  No more reasons needed

Don't know about the PSR-A series (someone here created a topic about that future keyboard), but I believe it will release at the same time as, or 1 or 2 years after the future PSR-SX workstation?
An owner of a PSR-A3000. I wanted to purchase the A5000 but I think that I'm closer 2 or 3 or so years before the new keyboard comes.
Past Yamaha keyboards that I now don't use: PSR-S710, PSR-A2000
Current Yamaha keyboard I use: PSR-A3000
Next, or future, Yamaha keyboard I will use: PSR-A5000
