  • Roland JP-08

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


    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 VP-03

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


    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 TB-03

    Roland TB-03 - "Roland TB-3 vs TB-03 - Friend or Foe?"

    03/09/17 Is the new Roland TB-03 from their Boutique range any different from the TB-3 from their AIRA range? Watch the video to see. An in-depth look at the Roland Boutique TB-03 compared side-by-side to the …

    Roland TB-03 - "Finally, a renewal"


    For which kind of music and specific applications or uses (studio, shows...) have you chosen this synth? No introduction needed for Roland's TB synths, I use it for experimental, techno and other electronic stuff. Does it seem sturdy and well-f…

  • Roland JU-06

    Roland JU-06 - "Get the Juno-106 vintage spirit"


    The JU-06 is an expander-format synth that adapts to a dedicated mini-keyboard. It is well-designed and built, with a metal-made upper casing and faders well into their rail that respond very well to being moved – very smooth and agreeable. The…

    Roland JP-8080 - FP User's review


    Ok I'm going to have to say that it could use more filter types, especially a OVERDRIVE/SATURATION option, and more polyphony. Multitimral is that big of a deal (its old) but the polyphony gets annoying with pads. Another thing; MORE EFFECTS! The eff…

    Roland JP-8080 - FP User's review


    The features are based around old analogue,but,there is a certain kind of eccentric fun about the fact that access virus and novation have more but,not nearly as closly honed to production and simplicity as the 8080. the midi is much of a let down on…

    Roland JP-8080 - FP User's review


    Seriously missing: more MIDI features: the machine is only 2 parts multitimbral - only 2 MIDI parts, and should have the capacity of 16 MIDI-parts (or at least 8). I really don't know why Roland made this machine with a lack MIDI parts... That makes …

  • Roland SH-32

    Roland SH-32 - "Roland SH-32"


    I picked this synthesizer module up on closeout for $199 after it was discontinued. This is a maximum "bang for the buck" item. By using samples for the oscillator waveforms, Roland has squeezed 32 oscillators into this unit (32 or 16 synth voices d…

    Roland JP-8080 - manachild's review


    Everything has been said. UTILIZATION Simple. C is Roland. SOUNDS Rack jp 8000, many lead sounds, fxs and bass. To me, sounds of reference in the field of goa trance. With the possibility of modulating waveforms and filters. Need I say more? …
