My guesses

No workstation

More AIRA - TR-9 (or upgrade pack for TR-8), extended System-1?

Something Boutique

Something brand new (XA on steroids? Big ACB concept which has boutiques built in but 8 voices?)

Who knows. But I know my wallet is getting nervous...

The 5 new synths that are promised has my wallet seriously worried.
Thanks goodness there is only around 2 weeks until they are revealed.
I wonder what these 5 new synths will be???

This was taken from the Roland page:
"As ‘The Future. Redefined’ event live-streams from the German capital, prepare for the first sighting of the new additions to Roland’s acclaimed synth range. You won’t believe what they’re capable of".

Interesting...we shall see on 9-09, that's a pretty big claim.

I hope a nice ACB synth, with decent polyphony and Boutique plugouts.

I'm telling myself I don't NEED to buy more. REALLY.

Sigh....

Despite all the usual internet whining, I'm sure it's all going to be awesome.

I'll get there, eventually. My old XP-80 is still great, in mint shape, and I love playing it, still.

although I'm always interested to see what they are coming up/out with, after selling my Jupiter 80 (overkill for my needs and no librarian), I backtracked to my Juno Stage, which I love and will never part with. I really don't know what else I'd ever need that I can't get with supplementary keyboards and soft synths (I use Novation Mini Nova). We will see!

If they don't debut a new competitive Workstation that can compete with the Motif XF, Montage, or kronos I won't be buying anything Roland.

5 synths ? They better have a flagship or top of the line. I don't need to see another low budget play toy.

I'm reading various forums once again people are setting themselves for failure, massive disappointment and the subsequent crying, whining and the empty threat someone will "never buy another Roland product" that eventually ensues. Let me help you manage your fragile emotions:

*** there will be no high end workstation or synthesizer announced ***

Powerful yet affordable products is Roland's MO.

The reality is most users have yet to max out the capabilities of their current high end workstation or Jupiters yet.

What possessed you to become armchair Dr Know-it-All when you have absolutely no clue what's coming down the pike? People like you is what put a dent in potential Roland synthesizer excitement. Let the people believe what they want, instead of being the Grinch that stole Roland's PR announcements.

I think people here have a long history of Roland re-hashing the Accordion, Digital Piano, low budget synths, Drum Pads, Guitar Tuners and big useless website countdowns long enough to know to not get too excited about new Roland product announcements. After the Fantom X, it all went downhill for Roland consumers.

See, you are already whining. All downhill for Roland customers? Not this customer and I'm not alone in that thinking. I'm actually excited. I'm looking for another synth and I'd rather not pay $4000.00.
