I'm looking forward to trying out this synth. Regarding the plug-outs, I've always considered the Juno-106 to be a "poor man's" Jupiter-8. Given an on-board Jupiter, I'm wondering how much I would use the the Juno. What Juno-106 patch couldn't be accomplished, and even improved upon, with a Jupiter-8?

The plug-out allows the System 8 to replicate the nuances of that particular synth i.e. Juno 106 or Jupiter 8. Otherwise, it should be possible to program a similar patch using either plug-out including the native System 8.

The System 8 is the front-runner in satisfying my poly synth needs. cool

https://www.roland.com/global/products/system-8/

So does this mean that ACB actually derives from AIRA and is a newer generation? I thought we had found out earlier that they are two different development teams at Roland, with little (if any) crossover even though much of the intent is the same?


ACB is the technology on which both the AIRA and the Boutique product lines are built, as well as the System-8.

I thought the boutique line had a lower audio processing rate than the AIRA?

Thanks to marczellm; I had sort of reached the same conclusion based on a few posts I saw elsewhere, but it did seem to run contrary to statements on this forum a year or so ago about them being different development teams with no cross-pollination.

It's been a week since I've checked, but it looks like the new plug-outs aren't available as VST/AU plug-ins yet, and Roland said something to the effect that it's hard to do and takes them awhile with each new plug-out but that it is a goal for each one.
