..well, they have to subcontract outside to make analog synths...

the roland of the 80ies is long dead yes.

to me they are finished, I do not see how they will sell me another product given their current linup and philosophy. But yeah for malekko made modules with the roland name on it. smile

Who cares if you're too pretentious to make music with whatever gear you're incapable of using for whatever snobby reasons? That's not something to be impressed of. This is exactly what's wrong with people who don't actually make music with their synths.

Roland should totally do some marketing analysis, based on "bloke on the internet"

Here is a start:

1. Bloke on the internet has big and clumsy hands
2. Bloke on the internet insists on everything being discrete analog
3. Bloke on the internet thinks it should no way cost over $100
4. Bloke on the internet will wait until the used market is flooded with these toys at a fifth of the original price.
5. Bloke on the internet always wants more outputs
6. Bloke on the internet wouldn't do it like that
7. Bloke on the internet would have done it different
8. Bloke on the internet hopes your company goes broke
9. Bloke on the internet says its ugly
10. Bloke on the internet says its way too big
11. Bloke on the internet says its too frigging small
12. Bloke on the internet says it should have Oled screen
13. Bloke on the internet has better knowledge of component pricing than your company
14. Bloke on the internet says it should be open source
15. Bloke on the internet knows more about R&D, marketing, pricing and technical matters than anyone at your company, you should hire me, I mean him.

So, fun fact which I just discovered:

Roland has an actual retail showroom in Surrey, BC, about half an hour from my house. I discovered this because it is in the same building as the place where you go to take the Canadian citizenship test, and when I looked up the latter, I also found the former. I haven't been there yet to check it out, but plan to soon. Will report back here on how lame it is after I do.

Incidentally, I'm just waiting for the call from the Canadian government to invite me to my citizenship ceremony. Looking forward to it. Being an American only just isn't doing it for me anymore (but no politics !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

lol, yeah, when is the last time roland made anything ground breaking or interesting. seems like they have a creativity/brain drain over there at ole. roland these days. i liken their focus on the boutique range to say porsche making cars to compete with hyundai. lol. wtaf.

i think they spent more money on that ridiculous multi day 909 day release frenzy then they did on the actual r&d for the tr-09. i've been bitter about roland every since. haha.

they need to do what every other major corporation does when they are running a soul-less company, just start buying all their competitors our of the market.

I've been a PR in Canada since 1993, when I joined the faculty of the University of British Columbia. I moved here from Reno, Nevada, which is where I did all my university learnin' and met my wife. However, I actually grew up in a little town in the "Gold Country" of central California called Jackson (seat of Amador County, one hour south of Sacramento). All my "people" in Jackson are gone now, but I still have relatives that I care about in Sacramento (although they are Trump supporters, which bothers the hell out of me, but NO POLITICS m*th*rf*ck*rs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Oh haaaay, I live in Rancho Cordova, and used to do a lot of geocaching down Highway 16. Reminds me, I should take the drive up 49 soon now that the leaves are just starting to turn.

Rancho Cordova... isn't that where the Sunrise Mall is? It seems like we used to go there about every other weekend when I was a kid. Two years ago, my mom (RIP) was in and out of Mercy San Juan Hospital in Carmichael, and I stayed at my cousins' place just off of American River Dr. and got to spend a lot of quality time exploring Sacramento and environs. I really like Sacramento (when it's not stinkin' hot). It seems like a really user-friendly city.

I love driving Highway 49. Years ago, I bought a great book that has all the old landmarks along the highway in it, and discusses the history of the gold rush, etc. I was really into that stuff when I lived there. Amador County (and adjacent Calaveras and Eldorado Counties) is riddled with old mining paraphernalia, and my buddy and I used to traipse all over the countryside, trying to find old mines and tunnels and stuff. It was such a great area to grow up in, but I fear that it's not really anymore -- all the local industry seems to have disappeared, and Jackson feels a bit skeevy to me now (maybe it always was, and I just didn't know any better). When I'm out walking around, I'm always struck by how much the area around Jackson looks like Tuscany. I think that if the area were properly marketed, someone could make a killing.

Fellow American here who used to be a Mexican, and now LOVES the USA. Even if oversized jack-o-lanterns inhabit the WH out of season. Canada is too freaking cold!!!! And, to stay on topic: WTH are you talking about regarding Roland?
