Yep, Yamaha provided us with the QY10 back in 1991, which was then followed by a whole series of portable QY thingies.

Why does the countdown keep changing? Earlier today it was at 2 hours and something and now it's back up to 19 hours.

Personally, I can't wait for this to come out so I can complain about the mini keys or the lack of memory.

Or maybe the presence of memory. We'll just have to wait and see what I hate about this thing.

Oh, GREAT.
It took several weeks for DEVINE to understand it?

I know what this is... this is Yamaha getting mad that people are starting to understand analog synthesis again, so they need to drop a DX7 paradigm on us so we'll go back to just choosing presets.
IT'S 1983 AGAIN!!!

You left out the smileys Marc :dancer:
