Roland founder Ikutaro Kakehashi has died at age 87 (factmag.com)

Sad news but to reach 87 is an achievement.


Under Kakehashi's leadership, Roland introduced many of the most iconic gear in electronic music, including the TB-303, TR-808, TR909, Jupiter-8 & D-50 synth and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Kakehashi was awarded a Technical GRAMMY in 2013 for contributions to the development of MIDI.
