Really cool, and am curious to the types of sounds you can get out of this thing. Whats really nifty is the ability to assign a delay to EACH individual voice.
Think this will really compliment the Jupiter 6 and OB8 (among our other toys) - since my production partner and I got rid of the Pro 5 due to it starting to get way too wonky, not worth the repair.
I really really don't understand some of the comments saying its 'digital and harsh'. Really? It sounds smoother than the JP6, so I dono what you guys are listening on. But I'm not comparing them side by side, or as a 'replacement for anything' really wanting a big voice with great sound, and a ton of on-board control that compliments the other stuff we have to work with.
Its cool that smaller designers like Dave are listening to the market (unlike the larger guys like Roland).
To me, Roland is a keyboard manufacture, not an instrument designer.
You know the 'band in a box' type thing where you see the 'musical director' of a cruise ship play sh*t renditions of Britney Spears songs with a "Calypso" or "Bossanova" beat backing it.
This IS going to be on the short list of new stuff to add to the mix this year..
Plenty of excitement over here.
