Roland Integra 7 Synthesizer Demonstration
Gareth Bowen takes us through the ins and outs of the incredible Roland Integra-7, an easily-accessed and arranged collection of 5,000 different sounds in a sleek rack-mounted chassis, including the acclaimed superNATURAL engine – revered specifically for creating realistically automated acoustic instruments alongside powerful synths – full V-Drum based kit collections and the popular SRX sound boards. With the combined array you can generate modern and vintage, natural and fat synthesised tones alike, all of which can be split and layered to get the best out of the unit, regardless of the interface/controller you’re using to generate the notes.

This of course sounds like quite a lot to deal with for a single rack mount unit, but as the video will demonstrate, an iPad can be used to control the action. While this is good news for quick patch selection (and of course effects can be added for good measure from the expected plethora of options that Roland have long excelled at providing), it comes into its own with the Integra-7’s new Motion Surround technology. You can now use the iPad to position different instruments in your arrangement, creating astonishing 3D sonic images.
