I know a lot of accordion players, my father is even chairman of the national organization for accordions and speaks to many accordion orchestras. One thing I keep hearing is that Roland accordions are utter c**p, those people want Accordiola, Hohner, brands like those, but certainly not the Roland accordions. So, why would those Roland Accordions outsell Roland synths?

I just saw this myself on the roland site, €75 is a bit pricey, but they have added some new sounds (other than 707/727), plus more accent and flam options from the 707 and 909.

I still use the Tr8 a lot to add extra sounds to my tracks, so this is a welcome addition. Hopefully we'll see more of the new sounds in the future.
