Hi John, welcome to the list.

Avoid the PAIA for many reasons:
-pitch drift and awful tracking
-noise and potential 60hz hum
-bad design and hardware

The Roland should be stable and not give you any problems, and it's 
fairly patchable. It will also have the extremely popular Roland sound.
Add a PAIA to that if you want to at a later time (but you should get
RS, Doepfer, Frostwave, MOTM stuff long before that!)
