Legendary Roland instruments like the TR-808 Rhythm Composer and the JUPITER-8 and JUNO-106 Synthesizers are among those included
Los Angeles, CA, July 20, 2021 — Roland, the world-leading electronic musical instrument, music software, and professional video products creator, is pleased to announce that 28 of its carefully crafted AU software musical instruments managed via Roland Cloud are now updated with native support for Apple silicon.
Native support for Apple silicon is another example of Roland’s commitment to leveraging the latest developments in computing to bring authentic, iconic sound to musicians and producers at every level. Building on nearly fifty years of synthesizer research and development, Roland uses deep circuit modeling and other advanced techniques to create inspiring new designs and to perfectly recreate the sound of legendary hardware instruments like the Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer drum machine and the JUPITER-8 and JUNO-106 keyboard synthesizers.
While the resulting sound and behavior is detailed and lifelike, it requires more processing power than some previous technologies, which focused more on efficiency than sound quality. When using software instruments that favor authentic sound and behavior, gains in computer performance are vitally important, especially to those just starting out that may not have powerful workstation computers.
