    I've always loved the VP line, though for that price (I understood $1997 usd) I could get something else...

    THough I honestly enjoyed Ed Diaz's presentation, I believe he is better than the korg guy

    amazing bit of kit, and a big leap from the previous one. The price is...ouch!

    Ed Diaz is great! $2k is a lot of money, but I can see this board taking a band to the next level sonically, especially a small electronic duo or trio. The VP-770 has live performance written all over it.

    not sure the loop recording can be really used in a live situation, pity

    I could do silly things with a keyboard like that.

    Very silly things, indeed.

    And I think the guy who did the demo for it seems like a nice, friendly chappie, although he should change his name to Miguel . . . Miguel Bananas.

    It'd be nice if they muted the microphone from the board feed so we could hear the keyboard and NOT this guy singing out of key! His first example of how it "didn't matter" was enough.

    Very cool tech, can't wait for it to come down in price a bit.

    Looks like a very cool keyboard. Probably a lot of techno people such as kraftwerk and musicians such as Jean-Michel Jarre might have theirs on order.

    good sound quality, but i like tc helicon's voice technologies better - tc helicon has a more natural sounding harmony, great modeling and pitch correction, has great reverb/delay fx. and the price for many of their models (MIDI controllable) is less than half of this guy.

    Looks like a great synth but its pity that Roland still doesnt implement their new synths with VST support like ACCESS or KORG!!!

    The same goes for V-synth GT! A fabulous synth but without VST implementation! Actually this is the only reason that keeps me to not buy Rolands synths!

    SO PITY!!!!
