Any word on new OS update at NAMM 2020?

Unread post by tfort » Tue Dec 31, 2019 2:54 am

When the CP 73/88 first came out, Blake Angelos and others said Yamaha would be putting out new updates to the OS every 6 months. One has come out so far, which seemed a bit underwhelming. I'm curious if anyone has heard what might be in the next update, which I hope will be announced or discussed at NAMM in January. Six months from September would have the next update due out in March, and this cycle would theoretically continue?

I'd like to recommend that my son pick up a CP88 for music school, but am also leery of buying anything that isn't capable of being updated to MIDI 2.0. I know Athan Billias of Yamaha has been very visible with the AMEI and MMA, so assume that Yamaha has been making their recent products with MIDI 2.0 in mind?

I can confirm there is a v1.3 update coming and will be available as a free download starting today, Jan 16th. Check the front of the site for more details. The article should be online from 1am PT time or 9.02am UK time (Y)

The CFIII and two more Rhodes are great, but it doesn't seem like Yamaha wants to broaden the sound palette of the CPs. Disappointing, they are not addressing the boards' biggest shortcomings.
