Earlier this month, Roland unveiled the biggest enhancements yet to the Roland Cloud platform. These include the introduction of the ZENOLOGY software synthesizer, new membership options, and the ability to buy Lifetime Keys to individual instruments.

Since its inception, Roland Cloud has grown into a collection of more than 50 instruments—including Roland legends like the TR-808, JUPITER-8, and JUNO-106—each giving users instantly inspiring, genre-defining sounds from the past, present, and future of music. 

Introducing the New ZENOLOGY Software Synthesizer 

 Roland's ZEN-Core Synthesis System—found in the Roland FANTOM and JUPITER-X synthesizers, MC Series Grooveboxes, and the RD-88 Digital Piano—is now available for use in DAWs with the new ZENOLOGY Software Synthesizer, available only in Roland Cloud. Users can utilize the same sounds in both DAW and hardware instruments, create custom banks, and share with friends and collaborators. Anyone with an active Roland Account can access ZENOLOGY Lite.

New Membership Plans

Roland Cloud now offers three membership plans: Core, Pro, and Ultimate. Core ($29.99/year or $2.99/month) includes access to the ZENOLOGY Software Synthesizer and ZEN-Core sound packs.

Pro ($99.00/year or $9.99/month) gives unlimited access to the TR-808, D-50, and ZENOLOGY Pro (coming fall 2020). Pro also includes all Zen-Core Sound Packs, Wave and Model Expansions for software, plus Anthology, TERA, FLAVR, Drum Studio collections, and all software patches and patterns.

Ultimate ($199.00/year or $19.99/month) includes all Legendary and SRX collections plus unlimited access to all instruments and sounds. 

Lifetime Keys to Individual Roland Cloud Instruments 

Users can also purchase Lifetime Keys to Roland Cloud instruments like the TB-303, TR-909, JX-3P, and many others. These Lifetime Keys provide unrestricted access to a single Roland Cloud software instrument for as long as a Roland Account remains active.
