Note that this product is no longer in production. Similar capabilities can be found in the XV-5050 64-Voice Synthesizer Module.
Looking around my studio, I see from Roland: SE02 JDXA JDXi 2 full System 500 systems But I also have a number of older Rolands like: Juno60 JV1080 XV5080 Integra7 FA06 FA07 Vsynth XT JD990 MKS20 MKS50 MKS70 MKS80 JU06 TB3 TR8 TR09 System8 Plus a bunch of Rolands samplers: S550 S750 S760 But what do I know, I’m not allowed to think that what Roland presented today is rather lame and mainly rehash of existing products.... Thanks for informing me.
