Expectatives?

it seems that a new VA Roland is on the way and will be announced in Frankfurt, but the Roland GAIA does not even reach the vapourware status.... no pics, only the GAIA, name, 3 oscillators, no more....

Radikal Technologies (Spectralis) are unveiling a new hybrid synth keyboard called Accelerator.
I'm waiting on Jorg to post the images and product demos on the Radikal forum.
I can't wait to see this.

Ive heard things about that new roland reveal, and also the new elektron box also... Im hoping for something new and interesting drum wise, as recently Ive been feeling a bit lost in regards to my motivation....

Yeah, Ive seen it. I thought someone over there might have a sneaky pic of it or something. But instead it was just pages and pages of pointlessness....

Looks like a volume knob to me.
Logical place for a vector controller would be the left side.

Well based on the past releases and the demo vids people can make assessments if they like

The roland looks okay, 3 ocs but same 2 part multi limitation again
Runs on batteries

apparently $750 rrp

My source told me about something that hasn't even been announced yet, he wouldn't tell me what it was but unless it's a $200 Jupiter 8 then I hate it. COME ON ROLAND YOU MADE A JUPITER 8 20 YEARS AGO YOU CAN MAKE ANOTHER ONE NOW FOR $200 YOU HAVE THE TECHNOLOGIES!!!!!11

Be prepared once the Monotron hits the streets to see posts on forums such as "How do I make beats on my Monotron?" and "What button do I push to get the piano sound?"
