I'm a new member as of today and this is my first post so I figured I solicit thoughts on the future of groovebox/software tandems. More specifically, I'm guessing that Roland will leapfrog Maschine and Renaissance at some point in the near future. Roland and Akai have been battling for years now, but NI came up with Maschine and stole the limelight; even considering Roland did the groovebox/software tandem thing first (i.e. SP-606). The MV series did fairly well for Roland which is why I presume they're working on a new series to rival Maschine and Renaissance. I'm a former MV owner and current Maschine user (which I love), but I've for-one-reason-or-another favored Roland products. What are your thoughts on the grooveboxes version of the Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo game console leapfrogging (if that's a good analogy)? Meaning, how soon should we expect a new box from Roland (if at all), since the ball is in their court now? Any buzz or information out there?
