The best deal on ZENOLOGY and all of its Model Expansions is the ZENOLOGY Pro Analog Icons bundle which included Lifetime Keys for ZENOLOGY Pro, as well as the SH-101, JUNO-106, JUPITER-8, JX-8P, and the JD-800 Model Expansions, plus a year of Roland Cloud Ultimate to fill out any of the other instruments that you might like to try, all for $499.
Is this correct?

It does not list the JD-800 Model Expansion as being included when you look at the Offers panel in the Roland Cloud App.

I would consider the deal much more seriously if the JD-800 is, in fact, included.
Hey, JamminFool. I must not have had my coffee before I wrote that post because I misspoke about the inclusion of the JD-800 when describing the ZENOLOGY Pro Analog Icons bundle, the JD-800 is not included. :hihi: Good catch!

The ZENOLOGY Pro Analog Icons bundle includes Lifetime Keys for:

ZENOLOGY Pro
JX-8P Model Expansion
JUNO-106 Model Expansion
JUPITER 8 Model Expansion
SH-101 Model Expansion
Plus, one year of Roland Cloud Ultimate Membership for new members.


Thanks!
hi Brian,

the ZENOLOGY Pro Analog Icons bundle isnt available for Ultimate members afaik. where can i find this bundle? and is this additionally available for Ultimate memberS?

Was hoping I could use Sound Canvas VA on my shiny new M1 Max MacBook Pro, but turns out it just doesn't run on my machine at all. Also considered JV-1080 and XV-5080 plugins but heard they run kinda horrendously on ARM Macs too. Ah well, no Rei Harakami style music for me I guess, I'll just load up Kontakt and make Aphex Twin style idiosyncratic beats with my sample collection; should put them to good use as they've been collecting dust due because uni leaves little time if any at all for my hobbies and other pastimes.

I prefer the Play for Life plan over Analog Icons.
All I need to be happy is one more VSTi.

I never used the analog expansions for Zenology, the standalones/competition are much better. Put in better words, if I look for a juno/jupiter sound, Zenology is my last choice. The JV80/SRX content is great though, you have all of Roland Rom sounds in one go. (except for the drums, hoping for a fully R8 rom drumplug someday)

I want to do Play for Life for next year, and I'm currently a Play for Life customer (from last year), but I don't see what I need to do to resubscribe and take advantage. My auto-bill will kick in January 2023, but how can I make it do Play for Life for next year?

i asked them the same thing. they replied with the following
Play4Life memberships automatically renew as another Play4Life membership, so you don't need to do anything at this time.

I would've bought Zenology by now if it was ever on sale at a good price.

I would buy a full year of Roland Cloud - at full price - if they released an ACB of the JX-8P that I can Plug-Out to my System-8.

Uh...two vastly different sums depending on which tier you're paying for ;)

Yep, me too. It's weird that they don't just sell that separately like the Lifetime keys for the synths. You might be able to get a discount on IK Multimedia's MixBox if you've bought their products before. I logged in to check and it's about $79 for me with some Jampoints added in there.
