The idiosyncratic D-70 synth has been released by Roland in a software format.
The 64 patch beast is sample from the original released in 1990 and is available on Roland’s subscription-based cloud service.
Roland are offering their D-70 synth VST/AU plug-in via their Roland Cloud subscription service.
The D-70 was one of the first synths to combine sample playback, digital synthesis and on-board effects and was the next in line from the D-50, which is also available on the Roland cloud service.
These and others – like the Jupiter 8, SH 101 and the Juno 106, which all came out earlier this year – are available on the Roland cloud for $19.95 a month.
If you haven’t heard of the Roland Cloud yet, we’re not surprised – it launched only a few months ago and is still in its beta stage. However, the service is progressing rapidly.
If you want to give these classic synths a try you can sign up for a free one-month trial as part of the early access beta program. Find out more on the Roland Cloud site.
Keep your eyes peeled for more classic synths being added to the Roland cloud.
