Roland Cloud Adds TR-808, TR-909 VST, AU Plugins

Ahead of the 2018 NAMM Show, Roland Virtual Sonics has announced that it is making software versions of the Roland TR-808 and TR-909 available via Roland Cloud.

Roland has created reproductions of the original TR-808 and TR-909 as VST and AU plugins, alongside the new SRX Orchestra virtual instrument. All three instruments will come as regular updates to the Roland Cloud service starting in February and continuing through early spring.

Roland says that the virtual instruments reproduce the original TR-808 and TR-909 Rhythm Composers based on detailed circuit analysis and design specifications.

SRX Orchestra is the first of Roland’s SRX Expansion Library to be made available as individual virtual instruments. SRX Orchestra complements the recent release of the JV-1080, bringing more of the distinctive sound of 90s-era Roland instruments to Roland Cloud.
