I happen to really like the JP80 and was seriously looking at picking one up as a main synth, then I moved on to looking at the Integra 7 module(which to me sounds gorgeous), and I finally settled on software by upgrading to Komplete 11.

If it's an AIRA line product then I'm most likely not interested. None of the AIRA products so far convinced me, they all have too many flaws and limitations.

The JD-Xi on the other hand was an insta-buy for me! Best value for money synth in a decade.

Should have stuck with the middle option.

I think an AIRA/ACB would be killer though:
- Part 1 and 2 are (or maybe any mono of your choice but then the interface may suffer)
- Part 3 is a 6 voices JUNO
- Drums derived from the
- on the input
- Twin Scooper at the end
- Interface full of sliders that adapts depending on which part you have in focus (no need for a menu dive here)
- Add some of the sequencer features and CV/Gate I/O found on the System-8
- Speakers, battery power (somehow)
- Full of cheesy dance patterns
- D-Beam
- Green, green, green

Not as powerful or flexible as the JD-Xi but more immediate from a sound design point of view.

My understanding is that the TFR event starts 12 hours from now.
I'm expecting things to show up before that thought.

nope... the update from Komplete 2 only cost $199
and I like a lot of the stuff in Kontakt sample library
I have enough hardware to fill a warehouse, and the price for used Integra's on ebay and reverb were beyond my budget.

But thanks for the

Now back to the Roland countdown 10..... 9.......

I'm hoping Malekko do what they did with the System 500 and design a drum machine for Roland.

I think if it were amazing they would have made a bigger deal about it. I hope I'm wrong though.

At 11 minutes past the hour it added up to an hour less. Or put another way an hour after my countdown.

I suspect they tweeted inside the 24hrs...

I just randomly popped into this thread after months of not checking it. Great timing!
I think Roland planted a message into my subconscious to buy their new Integra replacement. Wishful thinking, mayhaps?
(hint hint: get on it, Roland!)
