Sorry to say this but Orbital DID NOT buy the Roland System 100m.  The person
that did was Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto.  Read any interview in which
he talks about his System 100m and he almost always pays honor to the
Human League.  I thought this was common knowledge, but then again I'm a
very BIG Meat Beat Manifesto fan.  This was the reason that I originally
found out about the Roland System 100m modulars and ultimately lead to the
purchase of a couple of racks :)
