NAMM Update: Roland Intros V-Synth GT

Roland V-synth gt 

At the recent 2007 NAMM Expo, Roland introduced their new “flagship” V-Synth GT Synthesizer. The GT combines the V-Synth’s Elastic Audio Synthesis engine with Articulative Phrase Synthesis technology and never-before-heard sounds in a rugged, road-ready chassis.

By integrating a new dual core V-Synth engine, the V-Synth GT can combine Elastic Audio Synthesis, Vocal Designer Technology and AP Synthesis in real time. Roland’s proprietary VariPhrase technology is also integrated into the V-Synth GT. Together with its analog-modeling engine, External Audio input, and digital sampling architecture, the V-Synth GT provides a wide and colorful foundation on which to capture, manipulate and create sounds.

Here are the details…..

The V-Synth GT is the first synthesizer in the world equipped with AP (Articulative Phrase) Synthesis. This form of modeling creates the ever-changing behavior, nuance, and sound of an instrument as it’s being played. AP Synthesis can utilize both acoustic and synth waves to create expressive results, and can be applied for realistic acoustic instrument simulation, as well as new sounds never heard before.

According to Roland, sound designers will appreciate the complexity and editing depth the V-Synth GT, but there are many instances where musicians need fresh sounds fast — and that’s the beauty of Sound Shaper II. Based on the original Sound Shaper, this enhanced mode lets you chose a sound type, then it brings the most relevant parameters directly to the surface-all in a matter of seconds.

The V-Synth GT is designed to be a top-of-the-line instrument. New front-panel features include a color touch-screen with eight universal control knobs, and the addition of dedicated buttons and sliders to make access faster and easier.
