  • I have already purchased a PLUG-OUT Synth from the Roland Contents Store- what does the change to a subscription service under Roland Cloud mean for me?

    First, thank you for being a Roland fan and customer- we want to make you happy! You may continue to use your current synth(s) license(s) without interruption (and if you choose to do this, please do not install the Roland Cloud versions of any synths you own- a different copy protection system will create some challenges!). In the very near future we will be announcing a special Roland Cloud offer for existing Roland Contents Store customers- please stay tuned!
  • No sound is coming from the SYSTEM-8, JUPITER-8, and JUNO-106! How do I fix this?

    When using the SYSTEM-8, JUPITER-8, and JUNO-106 software synthesizers, please ensure that your DAW is set to a sample rate of either 44.1kHz or 48kHz. Use of other sample rates with these plug-ins will result in no audio. Please refer to your DAW's documentation for further information on setting sample rate.
  • Why are the Legendary series synthesizers so intensive on my CPU?

    Powering the Legendary series is Roland’s critically-acclaimed Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) modeling technology. It's the same engine as is found in the popular AIRA family of hardware synths. As ACB is doing component-level modeling of original analog instruments, it simply is very demanding.
    If the requirements of our ACB-powered synths are creating challenges for you, try selecting "Optimize for lower CPU usage" from the plug-in Option menu, reducing the voice count, rendering, bouncing to audio or freezing completed tracks/sections, and then archiving the software instrument MIDI track. You may want to remove the plug-in to reduce CPU load.
  • What is the difference between the Anthology series and the Legendary series?

    The Anthology series of software synthesizers are very different in concept and intended application from the Roland Legendary series. The Legendary series represents authentic component-level recreations of iconic Roland synths that leverage your computer's system resources to provide perfect reproductions of hardware. With the Anthology series, In order to maintain simplicity, the instruments have less knobs and controls yielding an easy to use and great-sounding, yet non-system taxing version of their hardware counterparts. 

    If you crave absolute feature parity with your favorite historical hardware synths from Roland and are well-versed in the operations of synths, choose the Legendary series. If you simply desire familiar Roland sounds that can be tweaked quickly and are easy on your computer, choose Anthology.  Both sound incredible!
