A new groovebox from Yamaha, incorporating a Motif sound chip (ES would be more than adequate) & expanded synthesis.
Basically an expanded rs7000 is what I'm hoping for.

well, hopefully nothing exciting is realeased, as then I'm bound to want even more stuff than I already do.

other than that, Korg ought to show some kind of electribe that isn't just another re-make of the old ones. I'm sure I've said this a million times allready, but an ESX with CF cards, expanded memory and better resolution would make me sell something for funds for sure

hoping korg announces a hardware based midi sequencer similar to monome, etc. or a midi groove box/sequencer decked out w. features like an rs7000.. but minus any built in sounds or synthesis (to keep the price low). i'd also like to see a new esx with more machinedrum-type features, such as assignable part types (instead of statically defined) and more fx.

otherwise, i just hope to see more synths and fewer workstations from all the companies.

Like most people I want Roland to re-release the JP-8, fully analogue but with midi for under $2000. Ditto Moog and the Memorymoog+.

I'll then complain that they aren't as good as the originals, because they sound is too clean but somehow not three dimensional.

I'd like to see Korg follow through with a re-issue of the Vox Continental organ with some modern updates.
Roland should come out with a Jupiter 16 incorporating all the features of the Jupiter 8/6, MKS80, and more.
It would be awesome if Yamaha came out with a modern CS-80 lighter in weight and smaller in size than the original.
A lighter weight, more reliable Memorymoog would be great to see.
Nord should do a Vox/Farfisa Combo organ emulator in a smaller, lower cost version.
Dave Smith could do a quality re-issue of the Pro-One.
Prophet 5 rev.2, Pro-One, Juno 60, Jupiter 6, Matrix 12, OB8, MS20, Poly 800, CS70M, DX-7, CP35, Casio PX-5S, Hammond C3/M102, Vox Continental/Super Continental, Gibson G101, Farfisa Compact, RMI 300A, Pianet N, Combo Pianet, S770, S760, S50, NS3C

Why would he when he has the MEK which would appeal to much the same crowd?

Because he wants to split his MEK target market while increasing his R&D, tooling, marketing and production costs without seeing any extra sales. Duh. ;)

The only options here that are remotely likely are the
korg neoVox and th Nord. And the Nord option is not likely at all.

Damn straight! And if you pre-order now it'll come with the re-issued TB-303 with metal case and USB uplink, usual RRP $299.

I want to see that Moog Drum Machine I keep making up, plus a new polymoog, or a poly voyager OS (start saving)...

Some new Moogerfoogers, Linndrum 3, A roland Jupiter 12, Some Balloon animals, The reissued TR 808 (release date 8th of august), A preview of next years 909 (release date September 9th), and a product from elektron that isnt a T-shirt.

On a more serious note, I would like to see a (preferably analog) monosynth with a sequencer similar to the korg EA 1.

Something that can be more than a TB 303 imitation.

Although I think Im just gonna buy an XS
