You don’t need a serial to register (I did that) ;)

I’ve NO desire to migrate from my Nord. Having said that, I hope Clavia is checking these guys out.

The one thing that Dexibell’s S9 has that’s remotely intriguing to me is the motorized drawbars. I would LOVE Nord physical drawbars that slide to their positions when you pull up an organ program. (I wonder if durability might be an issue, though.)

It does seem pretty neat, but I'd also be worried about the durability of that arrangement. I wonder how they clutch it, to protect against users manually fighting the drive - does anyone know? The digital drawbars on some Nords (but I haven't used those before) seems like a more robust way to deal with presets, with the compromise that they don't feel like real drawbars. But I learned to get by with the physical ones not matching a preset on my E5D. On songs where I manipulate drawbars, I normally push them all to zero, then select the preset, then at least I have a starting point.

I have not played one yet, but according to the videos, the S9 looks and sounds good. The only thing they did not get right is the price. Same as PScooter63, I also wonder how long the motorised pots last.

$3,999 in the usa is pretty steep.
it’s almost like they think they are nord or something. ;)

Yea the S9 is nice, but the features on the Nord kill just about everything out there. The clarity and richness of the synths that are programmed in the nord are second to none! I guess in also depends on what Genre you are playing. Im into alot of Fusion and Gospel stuff so maybe Im partial lol!! The Nord Rocks!!

Prior to getting my NE5 I was considering the dexibell S7. I tried it out in guitar center and really wasn't blown away, and as Kirsty mentioned, each sample sounded like a tweaked version of the main vivo Grand. I haven't actually tried the Platinum sounds, but I did hear demos and they sound maybe slightly better to my ears, nothing really comparable to Nord. To me Nord brings out the uniqueness of each sample in it's character, as opposed to dexibell and perhaps other manufacturers where the sample sounds too even and too flat or perfect without the character of the specific sampled piano. Just my personal take.
