They'll be here when the unicorns arrive.. According to Mr B, these were on boats on their way here months ago..

Unfortunately they were using a Behringer GPS to navigate and the entire shipping fleet sailed straight into the Bermuda Triangle never to be seen again.

Maybe Roland are involved in some way

Mehringer have already conceded on the name (RD808 became RD8)

Roland could be fighting design also

It competes directly with (and trades off the look and feel of) current Roland products

They could of been way smarter about this all along

It was hijacked by Somalian pirates and now it will be the Somalian kids busting out the sick gangsta beats, instead of milk drinkers in New Jersey and Florida, or Berlin hipsters.
