Was considered to be a bit of a joke due to its microscopic controls, faders are 20 or 30mm and of course there are only 4 voices.

However, it is a recreation of the original and legendary Jupiter 8,but part of what made the JP8 so impressive was its size. The sound is pretty close, but the user experience is somewhat underwhelming. They also used up a large amount of UI by including the two ribbon controllers.

Quite fiddly to program, but it does what it does. Not Roland's finest boutique.
