Roland Cloud now includes a new collection of techno patches and presets for the TB-303, JUNO-106, JUPITER-8, SH-101, TR-909, and TR-808 designed by Francis Preve (Symplesound) and Jim Stout (Carma Studio). The 303, 808, and 909 each offer 32 kits and patterns—with eight variations per pattern—that faithfully recapture the sound of vintage acid house production, as well as modern melodic techno grooves.
The JUNO-106, SH-101, and JUPITER-8 banks consist of 40 presets for each instrument—including bass, pad, lead, pluck, and effect patches—all optimized for techno production. In addition to acid-flavored bass and leads, there are ambient pads, melodic percussion, and even a spot-on JUPITER-8 recreation of the legendary "Hoover sound" that dominated countless rave anthems.
Founded in 2016 by renowned synthesizer expert, Francis Preve, Symplesound’s initial releases focus on Ableton Live products that combine flexibility, affordability, and ease-of-use. Building on multiple critically-acclaimed Live products, Symplesound has since expanded into preset design for a wide range of synthesizer and sampler products.
