The latest Roland Boutique is inspired by the 1985 JX-8P – we say inspired because:
a) It has controls (the original didn’t) based on the optional PG800 programmer
b) It has up to 20 voices of polyphony and a two part multi-timbral engine
We also uploaded some Decent Sampler JX-08 instruments for you to our Patreon, where you will also find plenty of exclusive content. https://patreon.com/sonicstate

It uses ABM (analog behaviour modelling) which is a less DSP hungry way of digitally modelling the voice architecture which means it has more power than the original ACB based Boutiques.
The interface is still Boutique sized with 30mm faders, knobs and buttons, has an internal speaker, miniJack connections and a battery compartment for wire-free operation. Pulse the USB Audio interface (8 outs – Mix, Layer A, B and Stereo in, plus stereo return)
USB-C is used – yay! Better than micro USB of the earlier models, and can be mounted in the Roland K-24m keyboard if you desire.
