Main reason for the return was the multitude of NAMM rumors. If these turn out less than interesting, I think I’ll get a MODX7 or MODX6.
Care to elaborate? ;)

Well, there’s talk about upcoming synths from Korg and Roland. Maybe even a successor for the Yamaha CP4.
Anyway, not getting a MODX8 again unless they “publicly” fix the keybed problem. And I did find the whole thing a bit inelegant. Then again, not fond of keybed gaps on the MODX6/7 either. Just very fond of MODX, though.

I know KORG have a few things and I "think" they have a replacement for the KROME which may be very interesting :)

Also just to throw a spanner in the works Casio have something which I can't say much more about but will change the way people look at keyboards going forward ;)

As far as MODX is concerned though, it is a powerhouse of a synth for the money and I would not expect great strides in the quality of the keybed from the likes of KORG and Roland in comparison, not at this price point.

You wouldn't be referring to this, would you? :)
