I'm hoping someone here can help me out.
I have a Roland GR-1 synth that is around 30 years old.

It still works, but is rather large and clunky.
There are really only two sounds on it that I am interested in:
Harmonica and Flugelhorn.

I am interested in being able to play these two sounds both live and
in a recording situation. For recording, the GR-1's size isn't really a
concern, but it is rather large to transport with my other gear.

Is there any modern synth that is more portable than the GR-1 and
has these same two synth sounds?
The GR-55 is missing the flugelhorn sound.

Also it would be really cool if a midi jack was not required to access the
sounds on the unit.


It's NOT a Midi jack...but we know what you really meant.... ;)

...would possibly be of assistance to giving you a worthwhile answer if we knew what guitar (and pickup) you intend to use to trigger this.

Read slower!!!   ....I'm typing as fast as I can...


Replace GR-1 with iPad running Sampltank and Jam Origin MIDI GUITAR app and and fast USB Audio interface
