That made me spit out my drink.

Now all I have swirling around my head is this chant:

What do we want?!
Uranus!
When do we want it?!
Now!

analog is a buzzword, I'll admit it-- and roland, of jupiter and juno fame, doing a "new analog" is enough to make many people go nuts

Probably not, any synth can do it, but noone will be able to hear it, the so-called Brown note is allegedly between 5 and 9 Hz. The lowest we can hear is 20Hz. Most speakers don't even register that low frequencies, so it wouldn't work anyway.
Unless you use a specially modified speaker like they did in Mythbusters, they used twelve Meyer Sound 700-HP subwoofers, usually used for rock concerts. These subs are rated at 28Hz-150Hz, so they had to modify them to go down to 5-9Hz. The experimenters on the show tried a series of frequencies as low as 5 Hz, attaining a level of 120 decibels of sound pressure at 9 Hz and up to 153 dB at frequencies above 20 Hz, but the rumored physiological effects did not materialize.

The "brown note" is nothing more than an LFO "playing" between 5-9Hz. No speakers go that low, nor do you have the LFO as an audio source. On the show, they used a 110Hz sound to allow the viewers to hear anything at all through their TV speakers, but that was dubbed in afterwards.

Must do music using only Roland analog synths.

Maybe he could convince Roland to design a brand new analog.

Anyway 9 years ago Roland released the V-synth, which is an awesome instrument. And today they are undervalued on the used synth market. So who cares....
