There on a roll making new synth hardware after years of being declared out of the game so there not gonna try and recreate the wheel just yet.... It's a shot in the right direction IMO and the old Roland's are still some of the most used sounds out there so it seems logical to do this.
There not gonna roll out 8 voice analog pollys that nobody can afford. Seems the majority feel there modelling is pretty bang on with the new stuff.... A classic sounding Roland on your knee running off batteries? Pretty decent I think.
Not exactly boutique tho.
