They've been in stores for about six months now, no need to worry about NAMM for getting more info on them.

Oh - My mistake. In that case I'm going lean towards this Arturia MiniBrute

Congratulations everybody, you got through a whole NAMM thread without any whinging about Roland not re-releasing the 303/Jupiter 8/EG-101! Everybody give themselves a big pat on the back. :D

EG-101 is totally underrated! Nothing could be as bad as people say the 101 is!



VSE gives the EG-101 four stars, that means it's better than the Juno 6 with only three stars! EG-101 is a sleeper classic!

True indeed, there was so much analog micro-hulks lurking in the darkness, everyone was too busy running for cover!

Yup. The days of crying about the Big-3 not meeting the needs of our (arguably) niche market are over. Other companies (and Korg, to some extent) have stepped up in a big way. There is so much top-quality analog hardware available now that the Big-3 are going to have to bring some serious value to the table to even be noticed. If Roland were to release, say, the TR-808 or the Juno-106 would anyone even care? Why would you spend that kind of money when you could have a Tempest or a Prophet-08 other than for nostalgic purposes or to be a true purist to an antiqued (but trendy) sound? Those qualities certainly have merit but they won't move massive amounts of products. Most buyers are looking for quality and performance, not sentimentality.

I gave up hope on a new Roland analog when the Jupiter-80 was being billed as something like 'overcoming the Jupiter-8 failure to model real world sounds.' To me this really speaks to the direction Roland has always wanted to go, which is also great because the V-Synth has really been getting my attention for a long time now. So I've really been looking at Roland differently, and like StepLogik has said other companies have been more than willing to fill the void for analog stuff.
