Roland Corporation U.S. is happy to announce the debut of Axial, the official Roland tone library site where you can download new sounds for your Roland synthesizer that have been specially designed by top programmers. From recreations of vintage analog classics to modern, cutting-edge tones that are perfect for the latest music styles and beyond, Axial is home to an ever-expanding selection of unique and exciting sounds for Roland instruments.
Roland is proud to announce JUPITER Synth Legends Volume 1, the first in a series of free sound libraries for the JUPITER-80 and JUPITER-50 synthesizers featuring a wealth of authentic vintage sounds from some of the most legendary and iconic instruments in Roland’s history.
One of the few good kept secrets was the release of a ‘little’ Roland Jupiter at this years MusikMesse. The JUPITER-50 is equipped with a sound engine that’s the sonic equal of its big brother JUPITER-80, containing most of the SuperNATURAL acoustic and synthesizer tones found in the JUPITER-80. It also retains the same Live Set architecture, where four separate sound engines can be stacked together to create massive voices such as classic fat synth tones. Users can even import JUPITER-80 sound data into the JUPITER-50. In addition, powerful multi-effects and reverb are onboard for studio-quality sound processing.
Since the launch of the JUPITER-80, many professional keyboard players and producers have praised its expressive SuperNATURAL sounds and live-performance capability. With the Version 2 software update, the JUPITER-80 offers new features that enhance its already formidable synthesis power, and provides more flexibility and creativity for musicians designing their own sounds.
Roland is pleased to announce that the new JUPITER-80 Synthesizer is now shipping. The JUPITER-80 represents an unprecedented leap forward in the pursuit of the most authentically expressive electronic musical instrument, just as the legendary JUPITER-8 did when it was launched 30 years ago.
