BJOOKS Inspire The Music

Essential reading for any fan of the Juno-60, TR-808, RE-201 Space Echo, or any of the other beloved instruments released by Roland, INSPIRE THE MUSIC from BJOOKS is a comprehensive account of 50 years of innovation in music technology. Beginning with a foreword from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, INSPIRE THE MUSIC goes on to provide over 60 articles covering various facets of Roland's products, along with nearly 100 interviews from artists and engineers who attribute their success to instruments and effects from Roland. It's all here—the iconic TR-808 and TB-303 drum machines and grooveboxes to the beloved SP-404 sampler; Roland's Space Echo tape delays to the expansive line of BOSS stompbox effects; analog synthesizer titans like Jupiter and Juno to digital beasts like the D-50, JP-8000, and the modern Boutiques. Whether you're an aficionado yourself or have a huge Roland fan in your life, this retrospective by BJOOKS is the perfect place to reminisce and, dare we say, INSPIRE THE MUSIC that you make.
