IT'S NOT REALLY fair of me to give a verdict on an instrument when you haven't had a chance to read all about it for yourself, but what I can say is that while the S770 may not be cheap it is a very well specified, professional-quality sampler with plenty of add-on potential. It's also software-upgradeable with the insertion of a new system floppy disk, and in addition to various minor tinkerings with the software you can expect to see more significant additions - most notably, time compression and expansion of samples, to bring the S770 into line with the S1000.

Assuming Roland don't get this together in time for next month's thrilling instalment of The Review That Wouldn't Lie Down, you'll still be able to discover what all those words you didn't understand in this month's instalment really mean, whether sampling on the S770 is a pain or a privilege, and whether you really can use Roland's most sophisticated sampler to date as an all-in-one digital sampler, synth and recorder.

Price S770, £4860; RAS 770 memory board, £899; OMS770 2Mb memory, £550; M07 Magnetic Optical Disk Unit, £5225; CD5 CD ROM drive, £1340; RC100 Remote Controller, £250. All prices include VAT.
