    Roland has previously introduced Sh-101 and SH-2 plug-out synths. At the Show, they introduced the Roland Promars. And, as the video demonstrates, Roland is committed to the plug-out platform and is interested in creating new synths for the platform, in addition to recreations of vintage classics.

    The Roland Promars recreates a rare synth they describe as a precursor to the Jupiter-4. For some history on the Roland Promars, see Gordon Reid’s SOS lookback on the ‘Compuphonic’ keyboard.

    The Roland Promars plug-out synth is expected to be available in March, 2015.

    This actually looks pretty nice! , and even with th crappy cam at namm youtube video I liked the sounds it could make.... It bodes well for roland... now if they made a controller that didn't look like shit and have velocity etc..... I think roland are learning from this though, and are seeing success in it... I bet they are working on System-2, with a better keybed, hopefully less awful looking, with at least 49 keys, ...and then perhaps make a Jupiter 4/6/8, that kills the Artirua one.... I am so glad that at least "I" haven''t heard that damn "scatter" gimmick they put on this stuff a year ago all over the place.... but I don't listen to a lot of EDM.... has anyone else heard that effect(?) abused to death over the last year?

    They need to provide a better hardware surface - System-1 is too small with limited keys, controls, etc - They need a bigger System 2, System 3, before I jump on board this (and I think they will soon, as lots of music mag reviews have slatted the limited scope of the hardware).
