Luckily for you, then, that Xmas is a Pagan celebration, co-opted by Christianity, so celbrating it is really a slap in the face to Christians everywhere. They are just too dumb to realise.Russell Grand wrote:... it seems Roland is already moving away from analog gear. They still haven't figured out how to listen to their customers, or they just don't care what customers want. That's not a company I can support. (Sorry, rant over )
Or maybe Roland have seen just how little interest there is for their analogue synths and have decided to concentrate on instruments that people actually buy? I can't imagine they'd lose interest if it was generating income for them, can you?

Why do you think Minimoogs go for $2k-plus on eBay?
3 grand for a Juno 60? $10,000 for an ARP 2600. These things are highly sought after, and for good reason. You can't beat the sound of true analogue components.
And stop saying analogue. It just makes you look ridiculous.
