This is the trend or story for this NAMM thus far IMHO. And that is a good thing... It will also put pressure on the more expensive systems to (continue) also do this... It will push more innovation to the higher end as well.

Every company needs cash cows to fund experiments as they grow. For example, I bet the Volcas, Monologue, and Minilogue are those for Korg.
