I actually like mini keys - VSS-200 is my most inspiring synth. Not that I will buy any of Refaces, but I think mini keys have their place in the world. Although I understand they could be appalling for some.

YC..? Combo organ?
If so, we have an analog synth (CS), a digital FM synth (FM), a stage piano (CP) and a stage organ (YC) keyboard/s...

Almost certainly minikeys, from the size of the thing/s.
Yep, I'm thinking it's 4 digital modelling synths the same mini-size, with different panels i.e. Reface.

Wonder if the DX will be anything like the DX-100?

It'll also be interesting what CS they use as the inspiration, as there's a tiny bit of difference between a CS-5 and a CS-80 ;)

My guess is that it will be one product with four different sound engines. The white keyboard in the blurry photo will be the "base" keyboard and act as an electric piano as is, then you can clip on three different interfaces which will act as an organ (red), DX FM synth (brown) or a CS analog synth (black). All digital, of course.

mmmmmhhhh but if it is as you are saying I cannot understand why the people in the videos look so amazed, shocked, astounded and whatever :lol: , it's "only" a VA, and FM synth and an organ :lol:

What if there is the possibility to combine, or "mix", the various synth engines together, it will be much more interesting...

Reface will actually be a Kronos, but "refaced" with Yamaha logos etc. and a few different samples.

My contact at Yamaha said it will actually be John Travolta, but "refaced" with Nicholas Cage logos etc. and a few different samples.
