Roland JD-XA – All you can eat review

August 13, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Roland JD-XA – All you can eat review 

We take a look at the SuperNatrual engine, the sequncer and other aspects. There’s a lot to cover – so grab a cuppa..

The JD-XA’s analog side features a discrete, four-part engine with true analog filters and a direct dry output.

Each part has two oscillators, along with filter and amp sections and four envelopes with incredibly fast attack and response times. There are also two LFOs with super-smooth coverage from ultra-slow to ultra-fast.

After building an analog sound, users can route it directly to the dry output, or send it to the onboard digital effects to shape the sound further.

On the digital side, the JD-XA is equipped with a four-part, 64-voice sound engine powered by Roland’s SuperNATURAL synthesizer technology. The engine is compatible with the synth engine from the INTEGRA-7 sound module, a favorite of top producers, composers, and sound designers. This allows users to take advantage of the large library of custom INTEGRA-7 sounds, available for free at Roland’s Axial website.

Roland Chorus Echo SRE-555 (501) Tape Delay Demo

August 9, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Roland Chorus Echo SRE-555 (501) Tape Delay Demo 

AUDIO: “Sully” by Jeremy Trezona from Phantoms. Featuring drums by Ana Barreiro, electric guitar by Sam Hoffman, & Wurlitzer electric piano by Carey Frank.

The Roland Chorus Echo is an analog tape echo, chorus, and spring reverb rack effect unit released in 1982. It is one of my favorite things on the face of the earth.

The unit features three playback tape heads which can be used independently and in combination. There are also two additional effects circuits that can be switched in and out: lush analog chorus, and a vibey, metallic spring reverb.

The SRE-555 was the last tape echo machine Roland ever manufactured. It’s an incredibly robust and well made piece of equipment and I can think of anything that comes close to the sonic and creative possibilities this unit offers. It lives on one of my consoles effect sends and I use it on almost every record I produce and mix.

AIRA gear is intuitive and easy to learn. It’s part of what makes it so musically inspiring. But it also has a deep bag of tricks, and these can take time to discover and master. Whether you’re curious about what AIRA can do, or just wondering where to begin, the AIRA Start videos provide a strong base for further exploration.

The AIRA Modular are the next-generation in modular synthesis. Each module can be re-programmed and recall patches using a virtual sub-modular system. This design allows you to customize each effect to your own personal modular system. The AIRA Modular includes:
• TORCIDO modular distortion effect
• BITRAZER modular crusher/filter effect
• DEMORA modular delay effect
• SCOOPER modular scatter/looper

This AIRA Start video for the AIRA Modular is divided into six chapters:

• BITRAZER Modular Crusher/Filter
• TORCIDO Modular Distortion
• DEMORA Modular Delay
• SCOOPER Modular Scatter/Looper
• FUNCTIONALITY showcases the four modules in a live performance and how you can create your own virtual modular patches via the fifteen sub-modules in the AIRA Modular Customizer – available on PC, Mac iOS and Android tablets.
• SETUP: Install the AIRA Modular into a Eurorack modular setup or use as a tabletop device. Learn how to utilise the various connections to your own system.
