For years, software developers have included classic Roland synths and drum machines among their electronic instrument emulations. With the Roland Cloud subscription service, the originators have joined the virtual party. The software version of their year-2000 XV-5080 sound module is one of the latest examples. Roland calls it “a Swiss Army knife in the world of sample-based libraries,” a workhorse that can get extra horsepower when mated to the hardware SYSTEM-8 synth. It joins the TR-808, Juno-106, Jupiter-8, TB-303, TR-909, D-50, and others to make Roland’s an increasingly crowded cloud.
