to be even more perceptive - I wonder how Crossmodulation from VCO2 to VCO1 is done without a 2nd VCO...?

Haha good eye! Cross-modulation is a actually a new wireless feature that detects the closest other Jupiter 1/8 and uses that other unit's VCO to remotely modulate yours. That needs to be relabeled "VCO2 - I'm Feeling Lucky."

Jupiter 1/8
This picture reflects current trends in low/mid-tier synths quite accurately. Analogue something to attract attention, with knobs and a rudimentary keyboard just in case somebody hasn't completely forgotten how to play. Not very functional but who cares when you have the unlimited polychain option :lol: These products don't make much sense to me.

In 1980's the low/mid-range synths were much more exciting and FUNCTIONAL.

I wish there were more modern affordable non-workstation sample based synths (aka romplers). I really enjoy creating new sounds from ROM samples but don't want to pay for the workstation part in the current machines.

What if Korg put the HD1 sample-based engine from the Oasys into a 2U rack and sold it for $2K? Would there be a market for that?

Im still looking/waiting for someone to make the thing that was supposed to be the linndrum2 - I dont even care if it is the linndrum.

Santa - please bring me a sampler/sequencer something with the realtime acrobatic prowess of the Electribe, but with the midi/sequencing power of the mpc/commandstation.

I hear you, and would kick my great aunt in the nuts for such a thing. Octatrack could turn out to be this thing, maybe? It's going to cost as much as a car, though.

I would seriously like to see a virtual JV/XV(or even a JD) from Roland that includes the entire SR-JV-80 ROM set, with an updated effects section(as well as a 'vintage' algorithm option).

They could sell that for $299 and it would still go like hot-cakes.

The allure of this is that these all have a very unique architecture as far a ROMplers go, with an esteemed legacy of trademark sounds from the popular recordings of the day.

And since these are *digital* instruments(where the migration process between platforms is trivial), Roland would be able to market them with greater authenticity than in the case of vintage analog(which would likely be inferior to freebies such as TAL-UNO-62, and thus poorly received).

Korg did it with the Wave Station and M1.

So, how much longer is Roland going to sleep on this opportunity to take a huge bite out of the resale market for vintage ROMplers?

I would also *love* to see Novation continue development of the V-station, or release a Supernova VST(they already released the effects section/Filter as a VST).

Does this belong in the software forum?

How about korg please correct the knob jitters on the current emx/esx models.

I'm 50/50 on this. Could be interesting.

Would really prefer 16 midi channels to be the core of my live rig, use 8 internal, 8 external for hardware synths.

I'm still waiting for the Yamaha AN2x!!

A keyboard version of the AN200 and DX200 perhaps? But really, do we need anything new?
Duncan J. White + quite a few synths
