Can we get Roland Cloud to be able to midi learn our synths/ midi controllers for our our (previous/next) selections while browsing patches, like arturias analog lab, or omnisphere. There was a conversation on facebook, a few months ago.

The list of presets is staggering and owning the roland hardware doesnt even allow for this while in zen core. This would be a tremendous help.
Cpu: Win10/Intel Core i9-10900K + Apple Mac OSX/BigSur/Slate VMS/Antelope Audio Discrete 8 Synergy Core
Synths: Sequential Prophet 10|OB-6/Deepmind 12/Virus TI2 61/Waldorf Blofeld/Yamaha Motif XS7/Akai MPC X

I would love VST 2 versions of Roland Cloud plugins to be able to use them in Reason

unless these were removed recently, VST 2 versions are installed, as well as VST 3 versions. i've used them in Reason many times.

I'm trying to use Zenology in Reason, but it does not appear in the plugin list

That's because Zenology is VST3 ONLY, and Reason only supports VST2.

But you can play VST3 inside Reason by using a host plugin like Patchwork, Unify and a few others. I think someone on one of the threads mentioned another cheaper one, but I didn't catch the name of it.

whoops, forgot to mention that Zenology and the the 606 are VST3 only. I guess al new VSTs will be VST3 only due to the Steinberg crackdown.

I'd like the zoom to work the same way as it does in the D-50 plugin for any of the others. For instance, the XV-5080 just has selectable sizes to choose from such as 100%, 125% etc., but in the D-50 plugin you click Zoom from the menu and then adjust it how you'd like anywhere in-between: 166%? No problem.

Did the D-50 always have that feature or was it added recently and I just never noticed until now?

if i recall correctly, a couple of the other plugs are set up to zoom that way (can't remember right now which one(s)). I agree, I wish they were all done like that.

If the lifetime 1 or 2 key offer shows up again, I'm in for a year sub. Hint hint Roland! :)

What would happen in the following scenario?:
Suppose that you have a lifetime key for a synth, and you then create a new patch bank and fill it with modified versions of patches from the Roland Cloud banks. You then decide to cancel your subscription.
Would you still be able to access the patches in the bank you created?

My guess is they’d all still work as you don’t have to buy preset banks (AFAIK there’s not even a way to buy preset banks) once you own a lifetime instrument, you get whatever gets added to RC for that instrument.

That was also what I expected until I recently noticed in the RCM that you have the opportunity to buy lifetime keys for banks mostly at $19.99.

So I think my question is about where the protection is. Fine if it's at bank level, but if every patch within that bank is tagged as copyright and you've created something which started with a commercial patch would it be lost when the subscription is cancelled?

Hadn’t seen that, they’re really not worth it. I love the synths, but find the presets pretty much unusable.
