Roland U-220 sound demos

October 28, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The rack-mounted version of the U-20. Plenty of realistic sounds (especially for the time), and several drawn from classic Roland synths like Jupiter-8 and D-50.

The U-220 is a digital synthesizer that uses ROM samples of pianos, brass, strings, bass, drums, etc. However it is built for professional use and is truly a quality instrument, even though its sounds may seem like dated-eighties synth pop cheese. It’s got nice piano sounds, but they’re not the real thing. It features 6 part multitimbrality with a 7th drum part, plus 2 direct outputs and 2 stereo outputs. The 30 note polyphony helps if you take advantage of this synths multitimbrality for creating entire performances and ensembles. Digital reverb, chorus and delay effects liven up your sounds. Editing is simple, but there are no filters. With several performance features, the U-20 has a full 61 note keyboard with velocity and aftertouch. There’s an on-board arpeggiator, a chord-memory feature and the U-20 accepts Roland SNU-110 sound library cards.
