    Roland S-760 - "No Toy for Noobs" has images

    03/09/19

    Pro: Video Output um das winzige Display auf einem grossen Bildscirm abzubilden. Macht Sinn! Aber auch die Bedienerführung an der Gerätefront ist sehr einfach zu erlernen. Exzellente Filter. grossartiger Klang, Aussergewöhnich sinnvolle Features wie …

  • Roland JP-08

    Roland JP-08 - "Very small – but very mighty, too!"

    10/21/18

    So this is a miniature analog-modelling synth rendering Toland’s high-end synth from the early 80s (1981 precisely), the Jupiter 8. It seems sturdy and is quite heavy considering its size, which is quite telling as to its building quality. After a…

  • Roland Mobile Cube

    Roland Mobile Cube - "One Of Best Amps For Money/Purpose"

    08/27/18

    There's a lot of battery powered portable amps out there, or at least enough to do some serious comparisons. I own a Lunchbox Jr. and have played several others. The Roland is loud for its size but I wasn't able to use it when traffic noise got too l…

  • Roland JD-Xi

    Roland JD-Xi - "This tiny synth could have been a giant – alas..."

    08/05/18

    I’ve tried the JD-Xi at length for almost a month, but I haven’t kept it in the end. It’s a nice small synth with many an asset but also too many flaws (some related to its youth maybe?) led me to return it. It’s a real pity as this small machine …

  • Roland CR-78

    Roland CR-78 - "Full of vintage charm"

    06/03/18

    I bought it on the spur of the moment, only realizing afterward how iconic it was (a good thing for me!). Of course, its sounds felt familiar and though it is mostly a preset machine you always have a good time trying the different possible combinati…

  • Roland MC-808

    Roland MC-808 - "Enjoyable"

    05/04/18

    For which specific applications or uses have I chosen this product? Used for sampling, creating melodies, and experimentation( R&B, Hip-Hop, Lo-fi and Soul) In what context do I currently use this product? I use the machine as a standalone u…

  • Roland VP-03

    Roland VP-03 - "A vintage-spirited vocoder" has images

    04/25/18

    I’ve invested in a VP-03 to get credible vintage string machine and vocoder sounds, and the VP-03 perfectly fulfills my expectations. As with all Boutique series products, manufactoring quality is very good. The lower shell is made of plactic, an…

  • Roland SE-02

    Roland SE-02 - "MINIMINIMINIMOOG" has images

    03/24/18

    ROLAND’s SE-02 is a mono analog synth resulting from the collaboration between ROLAND and STUDIO ELECTRONICS. It is a kind of SE-01 (a rack inspired by Studio Electronics’s Minimoog) in Roland’s “boutique” format. The size was much debated: it …

  • Roland TR-09

    Roland TR-09 - "A poor musician’s 909 ?" has images

    12/26/17

    I’ve played house for a while now, and i’m a great fan of the TR909 sound, to the extent that almost all my tracks contain at least one Roland instrument. Unable to buy a 909 due to its incredibly high price, I was excited when the TR09 was announce…

  • Roland D-05

    Roland D-05 - "The D-50 was my all time favorite keyboard, the D-05 reminds me why"

    11/25/17

    I've never thought much about the boutique series, especially since they're only 4 voice, although I'd consider one of the Juno models. Anyway, when I saw the re-issue of the D-50 I was very excited. I was stuck using samples in a NI player app. M…
