Roland has released Zenology FX, a series of more than 90 effects plugins. Here's what they say:
Roland has delivered memorable, genre-defining sounds for nearly fifty years, and a big part of that sonic footprint is its unique approach to effects processing. The legendary swirling JUNO chorus, feedback-drenched tape echo, and other sounds that have left their mark on countless tracks over the decades, can now be added to any keyboard sound or instrument track to make music come alive.
While many of the processors in Zenology FX have vintage inspiration from legendary products like the JUNO chorus, CE-1 stompbox and JD-800 synthesizer, use of them today through Zenology FX is thoroughly modern with a contemporary interface and simple controls for free-flowing creativity. With Zenology FX, music makers can add delays to arps, larger-than-life modulation effects to chord progressions, and twist and distort basses and lead tones that leap from the speakers, while delays add space without taking away presence and immediacy.
Modulation effects include choruses, phasers, flangers, and more—and they work wonders on synths and other keyboard instruments. Zenology FX also includes a menagerie of unique Roland effects. Explore the DJFX Looper and lo-fi effects from the SP-404, or color your sounds with slicers, filters, overdrives, and other selections from the vast Roland effects legacy.
