Roland quietly license their history

Roland US have announced that they're allowing three famous and ace effects boxes to be turned into plug-ins for the UAD-1 card. They're recreating the Boss CE-1 analog chorus pedal, the ultra-minimal Dimension D chorus box and, inevitably, the RE-201 Space Echo. Sounds good, and I've only heard good things about the UAD-1 card, although this irritable thread discusses the pros and cons of spending £350 on what is apparently a very aged video card with a bit of extra software.

i fail to see what could possibly be good about pretending to replicate the re-201 on a dsp chip card without a tape loop, a noisy motor, a bunch of star trek knobs and a backlit analogue level meter...
