    holy crap. i can't believe the "final insult" workstation i spec'ed as a joke for Roland managed to be more interesting and playable as a concept than what they actually did.

    seriously, the Fantom AS would stomp all over the JP-80.

      Nope. 9, for Hammond.


      precisely my point

        Ummm, hasn't the concept of a VSTi based workstation already been done?



        Are we saying that the entire concept has no legitimacy unless one of the big 3 have created one?

        So there it is, but yes you're going to shell out a lot of $$$ in any case, to have your VSTi inside your keyboard case.

          Speaking of having VSTis inside a keyboard case, I'm a little surprised this thing (Studioblade) hasn't caused more buzz. Yes, it looks like it was pieced together in someone's garage, but the specs/price look fairly competitive:

            Meh, its creator used to work at Open Labs. From what I've read, many of these keyboards end up in hip hop and rapper studios.

                  Horrible comparison. And that's the most ugly Rolls I've ever seen!
