Whats up with these new flagship workstations? Keyboard Synthesizers

Whats up with these new flagship workstations?

First of all I own a ton of workstations & synths..

& I'm extremely disappointed to see that the new Motif XF is pretty much the exact same thing as the Motif XS (New flash memory is cool.. but def not cool enough for me to buy an XF).. No new sounds just new features, same goes for the Korg Kronos comparison to the Korg M3.. Pretty disappointing to see that all they added was some new features that I could honestly care less about.. Like Korg's whole Karma system, I'd like to see more bread & butter sounds.. **** that I can tweak , not the same old slew of patches with new features.. anyone else agree?

I feel like they're putting out reboots like the street fighter series instead of new gear.. lol

agreed, but for big companies just like big labels, they put out what sells. There are alot of new "little" companies making gear that do push the border back and bring in new series however.

No synth modules, just boards. Planning to grab some table top synths though shortly

I think the big companies are having a hard time justifying completely redesigning the big workstations an expecting to make a real profit.
With softsynths and daw's taking up half the space, costing 1/4 a 1/2 as much and providing more power.
