Roland start roll out there new 2020 products !! #6417
As it was last year just before the winter namm (16-1-2020) Roland start roll-out there first new products for the year 2020.

But first news..... the MIDI Assiosiation come out with there new extended Midi2.0 finaly after al these years no-update

Midi not only extend there midi range it also brings standaard for real audio controle and data transfer.

*Note the USB-C will be the new standaard for connecting our instruments and pc/tablet/smartphone studio device's and music software.
One thing about usb-c it can connect device's without the need of a host-Computer !! Usb-c also support usb-midi, realaudio streaming, data-transfer and a lot more al at the same time and one other thing about USB-C... it can be powerd up-to 25volts

Midi2.0 will support host functie for midi-usb to midi-usb device's.

However many manufactors as Yamaha,Korg,Dexibel have allready create there own protocol voor usb-midi and realaudio transfer

Roland NEws:
1e we already now the new FANTOM (no-longer rolandaudio ROM-chip sounds so NO SUPER-NATURAL sounds) But its called a ZEN-core prossesor a PCM to WAVE AUDIOINTERFACE (PCM synht sound remeber the XV5080)
See roland cloud for al there soft Synths the have create in the past 2 years (roland-sonic-sounds) and other Apps it's logic that The NeW FANTOM is more a PC based VST player. for the roland-sonic-sounds

2e just now a New MASTER KEYBOARD the A88-mkII and yes USB-C and MIDI2.0 ready
PHA-4 keyboard,Three customizable zones, onboard arpeggiator, and chord memory and nice IOS and windows editor apps

3e GO:livecast
