Strap-On Synth Ships


Roland has announced that the Lucina AX-09 is now shipping. Here's what they have to say about it...
This compact and affordable shoulder synthesizer is designed to fit all musicians -- even kids. Featuring an intuitive user interface, Lucina packs a heavyweight musical punch with its stellar sounds and expressive controls.
With a stylish body and 37 keys, the Lucina AX-09 is compact, lightweight, and loaded with 150 high-quality sounds that cover a wide stylistic range, from synth leads to solo violin. It can be played in either a standing position using a shoulder strap or in a traditional horizontal tabletop orientation. Find the perfect sound quickly with the Category buttons, and press the Preview button to hear the currently selected sound with a pre-programmed riff. Assign your top 12 sounds to the Favorites bank for instant, one-button recall. Volume, reverb, and patch edits can be stored with each Favorite.
A USB host port allows users to play WAV and MP3 music files directly from a USB flash drive, making it easy to jam along with their favorite songs. Audio from an external MP3 or iPod® music player can be played by connecting the device to the EXT jack.
Designed for mobile operation, the Lucina AX-09 runs for up to four hours on eight NiMH AA batteries. To get up and running, a tutorial DVD and quick guide is included.
Pricing and Availability:
The Lucina AX-09 is now shipping in both pearl white and black sparkle, with suggested retail prices of $699.00 and $799.00, respectively.

Does anyone know if it comes in a left-handed version?

I really like the chunky design on this one. Don't much like the colour though, although they also have a black one which looks cooler.
