While yesterday’s announcement of the Jupiter-80 by Roland at the Frankfurt Musikmesse was big news, the JP-80 wasn’t the only new product that Roland unveiled.
FP-4F — an upgrade of the popular FP-4 piano, with the addition of the amazing SuperNATURAL sound engine, combining the award-winning V-Piano technlogy with an exceptional 88-key stereo multisampling core.
Quad-Capture — a Mac/PC USB 2.0 audio interface featuring two premium digitally controlled preamps with Auto-Sense for automatically setting optimum levels, VS Streaming for low-latency USB performance, a low-noise power supply, a road-tough aluminum body, phantom power, ground lift, high-Z inputs, and more. Comes bundled with SONAR X1 LE DAW software.
Micro BR BR-80 — digital multitrack recording for guitarists just got smaller! The Micro BR offers eight playback tracks, 64 virtual tracks, eBand for phrase training and jamming with tracks, a built-in stereo mic, high-quality multi-effects, including 40 COSM amp models, direct recording to SD cards (up to 32GB), a huge library of backing tracks and rhythm patterns, USB connection to computer, and much more!
BA-55 — portable PA with a twist! The BA-55 powered speaker features dual 6.5″ drivers, a 3-input mixer with 2-band EQ, echo/reverb, an anti-feedback function, stereo mode when placed horizontally (and it can automatically sense when it is in horizontal position), SPL up to 108dB, and even a built-in wireless receiver for the included DR-WM55 wireless handheld microphone! A second mic can be purchased and used simultaneously. And, it only weighs 19 pounds and can run on eight AA batteries!
