the Roland cloud (like other Roland products I've tried) suffers from poor build quality and terrible customer service. They're fun until something goes wrong: then kiss your money goodbye. the tech support people are glorified salespeople, and you should expect to be monetized at every stage in spite of their total lack of responsiveness.
Let's see.. Pay $20 a month, for years, ending up having paid hundreds, maybe thousands, for plugins, only then to lose every single one if I can't keep it up? Yeah, I don't think so. I'll buy a plugin. I'm never going to RENT one.
I bet you already do in someway. Welcome to the future. Pretty soon you'll be renting your computer power through cloud technology so you don't have to store a tower at home, and it can be upgraded without needing to tear the entire thing apart. Personal PCs will be like gaslamps and steam powered dildos.
Is it still the case that you cannot specify your own installation folder with Roland Cloud? I asked Roland support about a year back and they said if you change the installation folder you will have issues with updates etc. It's a big problem for Ableton users since you can only have 1 VST folder. Currently my VST folder is on a 2T external SSD. Do I really need to move all of my existing vsts over to Roland's default folder on my tiny C: drive?
Has anyone found a way round this silly restriction?
