So, I've been registered here for almost ten years, but barely contributed to the community. Today I realized that I have something to share with you, guys, which you might find interesting.

My favorite manufacturer has always been Roland, although I never had any of their gear, except for Micro Cube. This one was purchased at the times when I was playing a chromatic harmonica and I sold it a couple years later.

As well as many of you, hardware synthesizers have always attracted me. I must admit that I can't afford myself any actual devices, especially from the 80s. So, I've been recreating audio gear in 3D, lately. Like, 3D models with knobs, faders, buttons and LCDs. I did quite a bunch already and not planning to stop.

So, here's one of my works, a recreation of the Roland Sound Canvas SC-88 Pro.

Please, tell me, if it worth posting here in the future.

Nicely done!

Probably good reference for someone looking for one of them, or just wanting to learn about how they looked, what features, etc. Plus, if you enjoy doing them, why not? There is always room for something like this for people who love gear.

Thanks for the warm reviews, folks.
It's the 80s aesthetics I'm after. Synths, mixers, rack effects, pedals, audio cassette players, maybe reel tape recorders. Everything that's visually pleasing.

Roland Juno-106 was the first thing that I modeled. It lacks a few graphic details in the front, so I only made one shot from the back (yeah, sneaky). Will probably fix it someday, cause my current knowledge of vector graphics allows this.

P.S. Is it a shame not to know who Scott is?

This one I made while flipping through Roland Keyboard magazine issues. There was an ad in the back that interested me in terms of how it was shot. Some black blinds and a single source of light. I started from there, but then decided to add an extra modern look, using Roland's own brand colors and a custom retrowave palette. Here's my Jupiter-8.

The first non-Roland model in my collection. A recent addition.

Year 1984. Four tracks. DBX noise reduction. Timeless design.

Really enjoyed working on this project.

Fresh update. Roland Alpha Juno 2.
Knock-knock. Who's there? The Hoover!
Welcome to the Thunderdome. From Madonna to Prodigy, musicians of numerous genres have used Juno's recognizable timbre in their recordings. Nothing can beat the authentic hoover sound.
The most affordable from the Juno series, Alpha is the secret super weapon and an instant rave classic.

P.S. This one was suggested by Brian from Roland Cloud.

Only synth I ever owned was an Alpha Juno 1, that I bought 2nd hand after playing with my friend's Juno 2. Cool synth.
