I got this cryptic ad-like thing in my email today from Yamaha
Create your sound any place, any time
This better be good :roll:

The tagline is "Get ready to create your sound any place, any time."
It's gotta be another tedious iPad app. *sigh*

Well, if it's so portable, clearly it must be a CS-01 reissue!

I don't get these teasers. I mean don't even mention the CS-80 and the CS line unless you're actually gonna release something related. People will only be disappointed, once the product is revealed.

I'm pretty sure we've been able to create our sound any place, any time... for a number of years, now.

I think the concept of a 'teaser' is so overly exploited nowadays that it has no real impact...

At this point, it's quite clear that its gonna be a CS80 patch set for the dx100, and it comes with a custom skin for the dx100 that gives it a CS look.

Totally, I'm sick of it it. Why not just release the damn product info all at once, instead of this stupid "countdown" bullshit :facepalm:

Some links I got over at Gearslutz:
