LOL. I can't be sure the box is the actual box for the new "mystery product". You can see that the first letter is a T. And that the bottom letters probably make up the letters for module. So I guess that it's probably the box for a V-drum module or something (I.E, TD-6). Plus it's made in Japan. Don't know much Roland stuff is made there these days...

That said, could be a new drum module or something?

Plus does anyone have any idea of the validity of this random claim made by this web blogger? Could be a hoax.

That box looks pretty shabby for a new product.

Hmmm... Must still make some of there stuff there. Maybe high end stuff? The Gaia is made in China, so are a set of Roland speakers I own...

It's a Module, get over it.

What's covered up on the bottom right side by the black bar is:

Tonerzeugung-Modul
Modulo de Sonido


Both mean Sound Module in German and Spanish.

No, cause that would actually be decent. I am not holding my breath this time or any other. :?

That's why you are suckers! They are showing that much of the text to get forums like this bubbling with conspiracy.

They have followed the buzz with the minibrute and built an up to date version of the SH2 with midi, more mod routes, arp and aftertouch.

My other guess is a Jupiter 80 module. Bring it in under $1500 and it might sell decently.

I'm a huge Z3ta fan and would LOVE to see a rack/desktop with that engine and some knobs. I'm still sort of a newb with only a couple years of synth experience, but so far I have yet to see a VA that versatile. Virus I suppose, is but Z3ta is a damn powerful piece of software and sounds fantastic.

It gets pegged as a trance synth and it does that spectacularly, but with all those LFOs and waveshaping it is so much more.

Except analog is retro, not new.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Yea, 'analogue' or 'digital' are merely ways to implement a feature. In this case, the feature is "create a sawtooth". There's no reason why analogue wouldn't be in use today and as such it can't be labelled retro. The only relevant discussion could be whether digital has evolved to such levels where you can't hear the difference with analogue any more.

Actually it's not a new consumer product. It's a remotely piloted vehicle for Roland dealers, so they can hunt down the people whining about Roland not making analog and deliver a punishing shock to them.
