Whilst I was surfing I found a page about the Yamaha CS series in which ‘David’ makes a closing statement:
Right around this time [early 80s] the GS-1 & GS-2 came out which lead to the CE-20, DX-1 (nice machine!), the DX-7 and therefore the end of useful synthesizers from Yamaha.
The end of useful synthesizers from Yamaha?
What do you make of that? That implies that not only was the DX-7 not a useful synth, but that all subsequent offerings also.
Leaving aside home keyboardsÃ¢â‚¬â€which are a perfectly legitimate offering in their own right, but not really synthsÃ¢â‚¬â€are Yamaha now just making glorified digital pianos?
Did the art of Yamaha synth-making die after the CS-20?
What do you think?
