The delay seems ok, not sure about the rest of them though.

I'm interested in the bitcrusher and distortion modules. I think it's fun that Roland is getting back into modulars again.
Even if they're just effect units.

How did you miss that they're doing a modular version of the system 1?

Didn't really follow the messe news yet this year. I saw a presentation from Nord on youtube, that's about it.

Also that AIRA stuff doesn't interest me in the slightest, so it hasn't really stuck on my radar I guess :lol:

Looks like the FX modules can be "reprogrammed" on iOS etc. for modulation sources and what not... Interesting concept.

Yeah, looks like the Aira stuff was not the only cat in the bag...

This should suitably upset the System 100m collectors ;)

Also the analog thing. I can't be the only one that finds it rather ironic that after all the rubbish about 'not looking back' and the general arrogance of not listening to numerous requests from musicians, it takes declining sales and a massive company restructure to do what we were asking for all along? Korg had the balls to dip their toes when no one thought it would work, whereas Roland are just jumping on the bandwagon. Albeit a mighty welcome jump.

BTW can someone correct the thread title please? :lol:
