If Roland comes out with a Jupiter8 plugin/plugout on the same caliber as the JP08,
I might sell my 2 JP08s and buy the System8 then load in the plug-in? Not needing my JP08's?

Will Roland come out with a quality Jupiter8 plugin?????? I hope.

i just want to see one thing on 9.9:

a proper OS for the JD-XA to make it useable live and standalone
(transpose, pattern switching without stopping, choose different midi CNTRL settings per patch,
longer max. bars, individual track length)

instead of 30 new products (also with unfinished OS?)

Yep. That's a major problem with Roland. They drop a product like a hot potato after a very short lifespan.

No new synth masterpiece then... Bit disappointed.

New Drumset (TD-50) seems quite cool ! Nice suprise on that one...

The System 8 really looks interesting and it comes loaded with the Jupiter 8 and Juno 106 plug-ins, so it has 3 different synth engines according to which synth engine you choose.
After hearing some of the sounds from the System 8, I think I will be selling my JP08'S and buy-in the System 8, (it comes with the Jupiter 8 and the Juno 106) for me that's a selling point.

I love the JP08's but I really don't like the way the poly chains work with the 2 together it didn't feel like a real poly 8 with strange note stealing, with the System 8 I think it should work better with the 8 voices on one synth???

The System 8 synth engine sounds really good also.
You can also split the keyboard where that can't be done on the JP08.

Just thinking out loud but time to sell the JP-08's and upgrade to the System 8?

Well, it's all too much to resist.

That's put in my order for a System-8 and a VP-03.

Means I will be selling my JP-08, JU-06, System-1 (due to duplication) and also one of my JD-XAs (cos I don't use the 2nd one much)

So if anyone is interested in any of the above, PM me :)

I think it might be wise to hold back on selling the System -1 for a little while as Roland have not yet confirmed that these plug-outs will port over to the System 8.
Like you I'm interested in getting the System 8 but the looks and number of keys really dampen my lust for it. Esp as the JD-XA covers the Jupiter 8 territory in much the same way. And note stealing aside I really like my JP-08s. Probably will hold out for a desktop version.

System-8 seems appealing to me, a good opportunity to have an ACB 8 voice Synth with the addition of up to three Plug-out synths, including two that I always wanted but never could buy...

1499 EUR, ships in November

Cool
