In contrast the Analog RYTM will be smooth as butter, with none of the cheesey quality we've come to expect from Roland.

Seriously, the new products do look quite good in many ways, and if Roland's digital technology is as good as they claim and the price is sensible they will deserve to do well. Not sure if I will be a buyer but I certainly look forward to trying them out.

So there will be 4 models in the Aira series:

TR-8 (TR-808 and TR-909)
VT-3 (Vocal Transformer)
TB-3 (TB-303)
System-1 (System 100 or just the SH-101)

In general I'm not interested but very curious if System-1 is based on the semi-modular System 100 as counterpart of the Korg MS 20???

modular usually needs a patchbay and i dont see one on there
but i wonder why a keyboard has a fucking jogwheel?  thats crazy
i get it for something like an alpha juno, but this thing has plenty of knobs and sliders already

No... Noiselab is talking BS.

The System-1 Plug-out sythesizer will allow you to perhaps load a different synth model say a SH-101 or a Juno via software from a laptop/pc.  At least that is the theory.

But no one knows because their exact specs are still shrouded in mystery and everyone will have to wait until the 15/16th of this month for their official unveiling at dancefair in Utrecht.
