Do you REALLY think there are more people pleased with these TR drum machines that there would be with any of the synths mentioned above?
No, I don't really think that and I would never make such an absurd claim.
Of course it would be bigger news if Roland had released a JD-880 for example instead of a 707 and there would be more hype and talk about it if they did.
I suppose that it's a bit more work to make a JD-880 than it is to make a drum machine.
I'd like to see a JD-880 and many other things too, but I am still happy to see new drum machines.
For all we know, they could already be working on such a plugin.
Roland obviously has their own ideas over what they will make and when they will release it. Forums are full of wacky ideas and suggestions by arm chair generals who think they know how to run corporations better than the corporations themselves.
I'm a patient guy. I think that a JD-880 will eventually be released sooner or later, or perhaps much later. In the meantime, I'm not going to get upset if other stuff is released in that time.
