    1. Those devices are small, creating an illusion of fuller keys.

      But great to see Roland leading the way with optional keys. Be nice to see a full size 37 key with two module mounts for a better poly.

      1. yeah look at the demo video, the guy uses a full size keyboard controller
        and roland knows that there are some who probably not use small keyboard to control these

        1. Roland’s demo video shows these modules being used all three ways: as a synth module; in combination with this 25m controller; and controlled by a full-size keyboard controller.

          These aren’t for me, but at least Roland is giving people what they’ve been asking for, and doing it in a pretty creative way.
