Ooohh some new gear from Roland. The Jupiter looks pretty tasty

707 looks good fun indeed. The 101 is portable which is tempting
More on the Jupiter’s
Maybe the tb03 will drop in price a little
It’s a shame the ju06a is still only 4 note poly , but nice to have 106 and 60 in same box.
The smaller one looks like it’d make a nice addition to a compact set up… That plus some Elektron boxes would be nice.
Using their new A-Core synth engine, this differs from ACB in that is is more CPU efficient and can provide up to 256 voices across 5 part multi-timbrality with FX and assignable performances.
ACB is history, A-Core is the new thing
Marketing bullshit, lol… it’s all code.
The new Fantom is actually in stock at Andertons. They other things are on pre-order.
Damn. No Fanton rack.
Interesting, but aside from the JU06a I doubt I’ll indulge, the MC-707 looks pretty capable but probably not for me because it falls into that funny area where it does not have focus, I think I have come to realise I like limitations and more of a clear cut and direct interaction. I’d be concerned that having a bazillion sounds and too much multifunction layers would hinder me, but I may be wrong, I’ll definitely keep my eyes on it and user opinions once they hit the streets.
Busy week for him
I’m thinking it could be a killer looper (better than the rc-505) ?
But yeah, probably ok at everything else.
Maybe now secondhand prices of the JU06 will finally go down. They’re literally double what those things retailed for lol… I regretted buying the JP08 (which I later sold) only cause I could made a decent coin off the 06. Ah well. My buddy/roommate at the time had a Juno 60
So tha fantôme has 16 pads and tr style programming? Wow
I love the JV / XV series and if they put the whole sample ROM of the XV5080 and a patch compatibility to the Jupiter I am very interested. Looks like the System 8 will be obsolete soon when they put the whole 101 / 106 /J8 stuff inside the Jupiter X. I wonder if it will be possible to use the analog modeling synth and PCM based synth at the same time or if a reboot is necessary like in the System 8 / 1.
The JU06a looks nice, regarding the second hand prices of the JU06 it was only logical to release a new Juno clone. But why in the name of Ikutaro Kakehashi will it only have four voices again? FOUR?!?!? The Juno has six! I really don´t get it.
depends. The system 8 is not just an emulation but a really capable synth on its own
Not sure how much sound quality they sacrificed to attain so many voices compared to the system 8 and the boutiques
thank goodness! don’t know what I’d do without 51.2 voices per part!
