    1. The V-Synth’s VariPjrsse technology is still amazing 20 years on, I do wish Roland would bring out a new synth with a modern CPU using this tech. Would be amazing!

      1. It’s in the 404 MKII as one of the time stretch modes, not quite a synth, but i think it says something about how innovative it was at release, still being usable.

  1. Roland’s Cloud plays too many sleight-of-hand tricks. If you want to fully commit to Zenlogy and live in a Roland world, cool. Otherwise, buy the Lifetime Key deal for your top synth or two and call it good. I have a couple of them and they deliver. Its simpler.

    Salt, I love the V-Synth too, but the base sound data is proprietary and largely drawn from the same pool as the D-50, JD-800 and others. Too few people took to the TimeTrip pad and its VariPhrase technology. User sampling and the unique effects chaining likewise. It was way too much synth for people who could only handle a Juno-106. You can’t put the tactile aspects in a software version. Swing & a miss.
