Roland has just sent us some updated info about its Axial website, a Japanese site from which you can download sound banks for a variety of synths including Gaia and the Jupiter range. More details below…
Roland Japan has launched a new website called Axial – an official sound library for Roland synthesizers. The sounds have been specially designed by top synth programmers and are available free of charge to Roland synth owners. From recreations of vintage analog classics to modern, cutting-edge tones used in the latest music styles, Axial will provide an ever-expanding selection of unique and exciting new sounds for Roland synthesizers.
The sound downloads on Axial are grouped by musical genre and concept, making it easy to find the tones that will work best with certain types of music. The site also features demo videos and sound clips, so you can check out the sounds and examples of their uses. For now, you will be able to download additional sounds for the Integra-7, the Gaia, the Jupiter 50 and the Jupiter 80.
