Re: Old Guitar Synths (was Re: Roland gr55)

My roland synth history:
GR-300 with a white  GR 202 guitar as controller
GM-70  controlling roland and yamaha synth modules

I'm not sure when I will get back in to guitar synthesis, ultimately perhaps, though issues of latency, weak internal sound engines and Roland's tendency to arbitrarily drop features from one generation to another has been a source of frustration. I definitely have a love hate relationship with Roland, if they really are listening to what pros are asking for in this technology I sure don't see much evidence. They might start with a sound engine that rivals the kind of power that they have in one of there flag ship synths, with a fully programable arpeggiator to boot.
