The new Roland Integra-7 sound module was announced at the start of the month. Essentially, it has the sound engine of the flagship Jupiter 80 - with the SuperNATURAL tones and Behaviour Modelling and 128 voice polyphony. There are some changes  though, the performance structure - 1 effect for each of the 16 multi-timbral parts, they added 12 SRX boards worth of PCM sounds - essentially all the PCM sounds from the JV, XV and D series sounds, a 5.1 Motional Surround system, multiple audio outputs and a comprehensive iPad editing system - including the same synth editing available on the JP-80.

Designed they say, as a compositional tool it has over 6,300 sounds on board, AND will also be compatible with the upcoming Roland Legacy Collection (as will the JP-50) - a selection of sounds programmed in SuperNatural synth tones to emulate (or assimilate as the teaser implies) a bunch of vintage Roland synths.

Independent product demonstrator Gareth Bowen came down to spread the word - even after the last visit, when I was accused of unspeakable rudeness in my pursuit of facts  by some commenters. I promised to be polite this time and not fade out his demo early..

Integra-7 is available in October priced at £1200 or so.
