Here’s What Roland say About the Cloud SRX Dance Trax Virtual Instrument:
Pulling sounds from six different titles in the legacy SRX and SR-JV80 wave expansion board series, SRX DANCE TRAX is one of the most comprehensive collections available for dance music and electronica. Over 2000 waveforms and 567 patches provide loops, grooves, synths, scratches, stabs, sound effects, and more, plus hundreds of individual kicks, snares, and other drum sounds. Whether you’re creating hip-hop, techno, house, trance, or drum ‘n’ bass, this collection of sounds will elevate your compositions into foot-stomping party anthems.
Roland Wave Expansion Boards—The Composer’s Toolkit
Before virtual instrument plug-ins became commonplace, Roland keyboards and sound modules were the pro solution for accessing a wide variety of high-quality sounds in one place. Instruments like the JV-1080, XP-80, XV-5080, and numerous others offered the ability to expand their sounds with user-installable expansion boards, each loaded with a specialised sampled waveform set for different styles and genres.
After debuting the concept in 1992 with the JV-80 synth, Roland’s wave expansion board releases eventually grew to over 30 titles across two formats and multiple generations of supported instruments. For two-plus decades, SRX and SR-JV80 boards were an everyday staple for the world’s top producers, composers, and performers, and their sounds have been heard in countless hit songs, film soundtracks, and all types of media.
Plug In to a Classic
The SRX software synthesizer plug-ins bring the well-loved sounds of Roland’s legacy SRX and SR-JV80 wave expansion boards to your modern music production workflow. Digital Circuit Behaviour (DCB) technology reproduces every nuance and detail, fusing the original sample ROM with advanced behaviour modelling that replicates the hardware’s digital components and circuitry. Sounds can be edited via an intuitive interface and saved in the plug-in for use in different projects.
Each SRX plug-in features deep synth editing parameters to customise sounds any way you like. Knobs and sliders on contemporary Roland hardware synthesizers like the SYSTEM-8 can map to the plug-ins, speeding up your workflow with direct, hands-on control.
