roland is teasing a new 'roland boutique' promo video

it shows a jupiter 8, jx and juno-106. they seem to have 25 keys altho i imagine something like a juno or jupiter could have more than 1 model.

Are they mini keys? They look like potential full-sized ones. Hard to tell.

I am pretty sure they're minikeys, which usually are quite a bit shorter than normal keys. We'll find out soon.

Still. If the hardware is comparable to an actual 106, I'll still buy, and just control with a controller with good keys. I have several boards that would work fine.

if those are mini keys they'd be pretty small keyboards in general with tiny knobs :idk:

my guess from left to right: jupiter, jx then juno

That's my guess, too. double-row of controlls for the Jupe, very few controls for the JX, and that leaves the Juno.

So you get nice minikeys with VA hard ware me thinks? I wonder if Roland is going to push these out, make some coin and then release them as plug out VSTs.

In other words, they're pulling a Lucas :mad:

Nah I don't know.. seems likely though. Ride this out, then flip it back to the plug out, since they have that format going now. I was seriously wondering why we hadn't heard of a JP8, 106 etc plug out yet. You'd think they'd want to go for the name brand stuff and not the second teir stuff first. AMIRITE? :idk:

I would expect that if they release it, there would be analog oscillators and filters. Which would make it not transferrable to VSTs :lol:

If it's just a VA, I would have a disappoint, after the nice new surprises Roland has given us.

When do we get the answers to these mysteries???QUESTIONMARK??

I wouldn't count on oscillators, especially in the JP8 unless it's like 2 voice or something. Although they could do a JDXi thing and some of it be analog and some not.

Maybe they're just dedicated controllers for VSTs based on these synths?

I'd be willing to bet it's plug-out more than analog personally. But Roland could surprise me.

Still not sure what I'm looking at.

Edit: gearslutz says each one will have 4 voices from System 1. Not sure if want.

So that means this is VA and not analog?

zZounds web cache from the thread over at gs:
ju-06: http://bit.ly/1FXQhgp $300

jp-08: http://bit.ly/1L0QHKz $400

jx-03: http://bit.ly/1MEM2Op $300

k-25m: http://bit.ly/1WdIsN0 $100

it looks like 3 VA modules based on ACB (analog component behaviour) modelling. the keyboard is optional

it makes me a little sad they're not "real" analog. the way korg did it with the monotrons and whatnot likely laid the groundwork for them to go bigger with the ms-20 and now the korg arp odyssey
