Maybe a new case, new badge....but it will STILL be all old Roland :poke:

:laugh: Yeah, but the same could be said for the Montage (AWM, FM) Forte (many of the same, core samples), Nord, etc.. Certainly some sample and model updates have occurred, but the core technology has stayed the same. IIRC, Last time we had all new keyboard hardware technology was in the 1980's, with Roland SA pianos and Yamaha FM..

Buy your JP-80 now. It is the last quality action synth from Roland.

looks to me like the underexposed teaser photo shows the successor to the jd-xi and a new boutique D50 synth. i dig my jd-xi so it will be interesting to see the improvements, if that's indeed what it is.

 

I hear Steinway is releasing yet another repackaged piano this year, still using the same metal strings and wooden keys. ;)

You may very well be on target, CEB. It seems with the synths they are very focused on EDM producers for now.

 

Thank goodness there is still activity in the digital console and stage piano lines. They are all in on this PHA-50 action, it's all over the new models. Ivory Feel-G is now in the DS88. I haven't been able to play it yet (the RD-2000 or FP-90, etc.)

 

Would love to see them put out a quality action pro build VR-XXX again.

3 sections:

RD-2000 Pianos and EPs

Jupiter-80 Synth patches

VR-09 organ engine with an all new top modern Leslie simulation

 

Now watch them surprise us with an update to the Fantom/FA lineage.

Even something with the same synth engine, but the keybed from the A70 would be an advance :D

Synth products will be announced on June 9 and June 10.

 

I'm confused: I thought the synths were product #9 and 10 introducing on 6/20......that calendar is as confusing as their interface.

I have to politely disagree. I think the underexposed photo is a System 8. It appears to be four octaves of full sized keys, and I can almost read "System 8" in the corner.

 

If you are correct that it's an improved JD-XI, I will be very upset, because i JUST bought one of those like a week ago. And June 20th will be a few days past my return window. And I love the JD-XI.

If it were a reissue of the Jupiter 8, I'd be fine with that.

 

haha, cannot argue with that!! :)

Yes, but only if it's true analog. No more VA's.

Are we wish listing?

 

If so, I think I wouldn't be alone in hoping for a Fantom/FA refresh.

A full out Supernatural or better sound set with a PHA-50 action on the 88 or 76k model. A 61 or 73k quality synth action ie. the Jupiter-80. Not sure if Roland is capable of thinking out of the box on the alternative keyboard lengths. But they could surely trickle down some better actions and their better sounds to the giggers line.

If it were me, I'd do the 61 and 76 semi-weighted, and a 73 and 88 weighted. And only the 76 with aftertouch.

I guess they figure that worked for Yamaha with the ReFACE series -- except that the ReFACE keys had a lot more going on than people initially thought, but I doubt that these "items" do.
