Wait until you see the hardware that Vince Watson is packing. You know the type of moment: This was an era where new technologies were colliding with new musical frontiers, creating a huge impact and forming electronic music history as we know it today. Fortunately, it was also an era where these records still listed what instruments the artists were using in the sleevenotes. I had my list written out and kept on the back of my bedroom door.
I had no idea how I was going to get them but it allowed me to dream. Me and a friend used to sample them from ghetto blasters and Walkmans on a Casio SK — it was the closest I thought I would get to the real thing. I loved it. It was invaluable information and wish-lists were made bigger each month, drooling over one Roland machine after another. Unfortunately, this also meant the sudden realisation that my milk run was not going to pay for it.
But I also credit it with inspiring this young boy to be a musician with these otherworldly bits of kit. My grandmother had been saving money for my birthday, as she knew I was desperate to play music, and took me into Glasgow to the best music shop, Sound Control. We were taken downstairs to the synth section and sitting right there on the second-hand racks was an SH and a TB I could not believe what I was seeing. I was totally mesmerised. For the first time in my life I was actually seeing them in person.
The guy gave me some headphones and plugged me in. After a while, my gran said we had to leave, and I was devastated. It was a lie. And the price? I had never been so excited in my life. This is where it really all started for me with Roland, and to this very day I still love and use my and My gran had no idea what they were, of course, so it was satisfying to get the home and attempt to play it for her.
I remember many days running home from school to make noises on them. The revelation that I could connect them with minijack cables and make the same sequence — but with different sounds on different headphones — was epic.
My music teacher knew I stood out and contacted my parents about my music lessons. The next day, I was asked if I would be interested in leaving school early and going to college instead. I was only 15, but Stow College in Glasgow were willing to enrol me into the Music Technology course. My teacher thought my education and my would be better-suited in a MIDI course rather than a classical music lesson, and for the next two years my and would make regular trips on the bus with a pair of Walkman-sized Roland headphones.
I got some seriously strange looks during that time. It was an amazing synth, so warm. By this time, I was on a mission.
We were sharing machines almost daily at the time, but we were using an old Yamaha RX drum machine and an Atari for drums. The s were slightly more common, but trying to get one before it sold was next to impossible.
I was fortunate to get a phone call one day from my friend, who saw a in Merchant City Music. I was going to use all my bursary money from college to pay for it if I had to.
That very has toured the world with me a few times. I remember being chased by five punks who clearly knew what it was — luckily it escaped unharmed. I even remember Jeff Mills sitting outside my house in Erskine in the car asking to borrow it when he played at my Rotation residency in Glasgow. But there was one big, booming gap in the collection at that point — the TR The Jupiter-8 was always out of range.
It was never available and if it was, then it was crazy expensive for something so old. I did have a Jupiter-6 for a short time, but sadly the knobs were wonky and it was in need of a service.
When Roland started releasing synths like the JD and JP, it was the perfect moment to do another wish-list. The JP is an unsung hero: I still use it today for certain sounds.
See my Biologique album or my Bio Music releases for examples where it was used extensively. The JD was used on Mystical Rhythm, also.
The is still a great module, even today, and I was very pleased to see Roland develop further modules in that direction with the XV The Gaia SH fitted the bill, was super-lightweight, had USB and I had the intention of touring live with it to replace my SH, as sadly the repair costs were getting too much and at 30 years old it was becoming too valuable to tour with.
Then everything changed, again. When the machines were finally revealed I knew immediately I was going to get them. The concept solved so many problems instantly for me: I always found touring with MIDI boxes and cables such a headache! The added and kits were a nice addition, and when Roland released the SH plug-out, I picked that up straightaway.
I thought the replacement plan for my hardware was complete, but then the star of the entire AIRA show so far arrived in the shape of the SH-2 plug-out. I actually did something very unique and experimental with the TR I had the drum machine running at bpm from Ableton, with all the audio going through an Eventide H9 with a Nebula reverb at almost maximum.
I had every drum sound on the TR-8 playing on every note. What I was able to create sounded like weather. The rides and hats were rain, the kicks and toms were thunder. It was such a fun experience. I probably would have never even thought to do that using software alone. Had a go? It felt so accurate to my ears. My original JUNO is currently not in my studio in the Netherlands, so this little beauty fits nicely into this smaller studio space.
Until then, that void may well be filled by the JD-XA. It kinda reminds me of the JD as the first of a new breed of Roland beasts. Being able to harness analogue filters using digital parts as well is pretty potent.
The sound engine stopped working a while ago but due to the amount of controls and the lovely long keys, I had been using it as a MIDI keyboard controller. Now I was in the market for a new one. I tried maybe 20, and found the Roland APRO had such a beautiful key action for a semi-weighted keyboard.
Taking it a step further would be very interesting: It might have taken a long time, but these products have been worth waiting for.
