Features

SRX KEYBOARDS is a completely authentic, virtual recreation of an early 2000s SRX expansion board, originally available only for compatible Roland hardware synths. The original SRX expansion compiled multiple SR-JV80 boards, collecting the very best Roland keyboard sounds from the previous decade into a single expansion.

SRX KEYBOARDS puts all this into a powerful plugin using our acclaimed DCB (Digital Circuit Behavior) technology to reproduce every nuance and detail of the original hardware. DCB uses the original sample ROM, and accurately reproduces the original waveforms and any behavior or artifacts that resulted from the digital components and circuitry used in the hardware unit.

SRX KEYBOARDS includes over 1700 original waveforms, 86 effects, and 393 preset tones—with plenty of room to craft your own sounds using the deep, high-resolution, editing interface. The collection covers a staggering range of classic keyboard sounds from all manner of acoustic and electric pianos to synth pads, string machines, and much more.

While many of these sounds are expertly crafted creations of acoustic and electric instruments, some of the variations, modifications, and artifacts found here have themselves become classic keyboard sounds, appearing on hit tracks and countless film and TV scores. These tried-and-true sounds cover a wide range of genres and are engineered to sit perfectly in mix.

For musicians that owned the original SRX expansion board, it will become immediately apparent that SRX KEYBOARDS is tonally indistinguishable from the hardware. For everyone else, SRX KEYBOARDS' breadth of tweakable tones lends itself perfectly to all modern musical genres and sub-genres.

Here's more:
  • Digital Circuit Behavior (DCB) faithfully captures every detail of the original SRX based expansion
  • All new user interface provides quick access to the original controls and parameters
  • 1702 original waveforms and 86 effects
  • 393 expertly crafted tones with room to create your own
  • 64-bit VST2, VST3 AU and AAX support
  • Simple installation and updates via Roland Cloud Manager

* Although Roland has tested numerous configurations, and has determined that on average, a computer system similar to that described above will permit normal operation of the SRX KEYBOARDS Software Synthesizer, Roland cannot guarantee that a given computer can be used satisfactorily with the SRX KEYBOARDS Software Synthesizer based solely on the fact that it meets the above requirements.
This is because there are too many other variables that may influence the processing environment, including differences in motherboard design and the particular combination of other devices involved.
