It does, but when I saw the announcement I lol’d. I knew the cheesy 80’s and 90’s digisynths would be back in a wave of nostalgia. TBF, I bet you can go pretty deep with this with a modern sound design aesthetic. I still don’t totally understand the architecture. I know it uses short samples for transient sounds, but is it additive waves for the sustained bits or more single cycle samples used as oscillators? Also seems to include some of the ideas of vector synthesis?
Also, I really really really want to see Roland try and squeeze the JD800 interface into boutique form factor
