Yes, they may have stopped making the hardware but they make a bunch of apps. So obviously the market is still very much "materialized" :) I really like their Tenori-on app as well.

id say there's a 21.5% chance we will see a new QY within the next 2 years.

Teenage Engineering OP-1 looks like something Yammie could take some notes from too for their next QY.

Funny thread.
Personally, I don't think that we will ever see another QY...way too much horsepower under our own hoods.
Thanks though, for the tip on the Mobile Seq!

(Side story: I was selling a Leslie sometime ago and the buyer showed up early. So I needed a quick sound source to demonstrate to the buyer that the Leslie was in good working condition. Solution was to grab the QY and run it into the Leslie. OMG!!! The little QY sounded glorious through the 122. Go figure.)
