A Continuing Tradition

If you’re a longtime Roland and BOSS user, you might remember the Roland Users Group and BOSS Users Group print magazines. Each of these titles was published for over 20 years, with new issues coming out about three times annually. They were available for free at all Roland and BOSS dealers, and were also sent directly to subscribers via mail. Around 2005, both Roland Users Group and BOSS Users Group moved to the web, where they’re still going strong today.
