Looks like the manufacturers are starting to leak their latest gear already pre show.

Let's use this thread to link the new stuff as it comes out.

NAMM report on the Roland RD-88.

Looks and sounds pretty good to me.
With the built-in speakers, it's almost a PX-S1000 on steroids (well, not really). Audio and Midi over one USB cable, nice.
Plus, there's support for Roland's triple pedal unit RPU-3.
Sadly, as with all of Roland's stage pianos, no music rest.
Don't understand this. On the CP88, there's none included either, but at least it's an optional extra.
Korg's new SV2 has a music rest as well.
With the RD-88, if you want to use an iPad, you'll need to buy a stand where you can mount a second tier or a laptop/tablet holder. Not very convenient.
But I guess people buying the RD-88 couldn't care less about a music rest.
