Over the next month, Japanese giants Roland are set to unleash 14 new products. They have decided to split the showcase over four separate occasions, which will encompass drums and percussion, guitar products, pro video and synthesisers.
Roland are gearing up to drop 14 new products – including synths, pro audio gear and guitar products – over the next few months in a massive online event.
With their recent foray into the world of subscription based products and the already monolithic collection of historically influential hardware, it’s hard to see any gaps in the market which Roland have not already filled, yet they continue to innovate and it’s hardly surprising to envisage that the upcoming announcements will cause more than a little stir.
Roland will be kicking off the month long extravaganza by announcing four new instruments in the drums and percussion category on May 26, which will be followed by a Twitter conversation, in which fans (and prospective customers no doubt) will be able to quiz the developers of the new products under the #RolandTFR hashtag.
New drum machines, stompboxes and synths: Christmas has come early! Be sure to stay up to speed with all the announcements here.
The product rollout will happen like this:
26th May – 4 x new drum/percussion products
1st June – 2 x new guitar products and 2 x new pro audio products
20th June – 2 x new synths
23rd June 4 x new guitar products
