  • Musikmesse 2015 Predictions

    OK, so none of the big guns (Roland, Yamaha) put out anything really big or new at NAMM this January. With Musikmesse a little over 3 months away, the timing's about right for some speculation. Let's use this topic for predictions, and if possible, provide some justification as to what's behind your prediction. I'll start with Prediction #1 & #2. The next contributor names his/her #3. As the topic builds, this will make it easer to keep things straight

    So, here goes:

    Prediction #1: Roland will come out with a big brother to the TM-2. Reasons: a) The TM-2 was an experiment and it's catching on. b) Michael Shack hinted about it on the forum (but I can't find the post)

    Prediction #2: Superior Drummer 3 will be released. Reason: SD2 is due for an upgrade, and EZDrummer2 is doing well.

    Next...

    Michael Shack hinted as well, they have the TM-2, for now ;-) there is definitively something on the works, if you see their 2 last percussion module, Handsonic and Tm-2, they finally using the imports wav, (outside spd-s) now they have to do it with a larger scale and layers. But as for the time frame, no one knows.

          You're right, it was Michael Shack - no wonder I couldn't find the post.

            One thing about Roland is that they never release any information before an official launch. Ever!

                  It just so happens I have to be in Frankfurt that very week for work. I might go that Saturday that's open to the public. Anyone on the forum going to be there?

                        A quick update;

                        I did the search wrong...

                        Now I'm looking through 117 results and I'm getting things like;

                        2BOX Music Applications AB
                        Halle 5 Ebene 1 Stand C44

                        M&M Vertriebs GmbH & Co.KG - Div. drum-tec
                        Halle 3 Ebene 0 Stand D55

                        Hard to find any new companies or distributors with unannounced edrum products.
                        Honestly, I have low expectations for this show.
