Cloud Connect by Roland

If you don’t have a USB cable long enough to reach your computer, or if you don’t have one at all, the WC-1 wireless adapter might be quite what you need to connect your Roland synth to Roland Cloud.

It connects wirelessly to an iOS or Android app on your phone after being plugged into the rear of your synth. The program then allows you to explore the Sound Packs, Wave Expansions, and Model Expansions library and download them straight to your gear. You may also listen to sounds in the app before downloading them.

For the same price as buying the membership separately, the Roland Cloud Connect package includes a full year of Roland Cloud Pro subscription.

In the new year, Roland Cloud Connect will be available for $99.

The Roland JD-800 VST is now available through Roland Cloud

By News No Comments

Roland has released the JD-800 VST, which is a reproduction of the legendary hardware JD-800 synthesizer.

Many consider the original Roland JD-800 to be a classic digital synthesizer, combining the power of digital synthesis with the hands-on control of classic 1970s analog synthesizers. It included patches developed by Roland’s then-Chief Sound Designer Eric Persing, who was responsible for many of the most recognizable sounds of original Roland synthesizers before founding Spectrasonics.

The JD-800 Software Synthesizer retains the traditional sound of the original, including the original 64 presets, but builds on it with increased polyphony and other current improvements.


  • There are 64 original settings as well as 64 new presets.
  • Reproduction of the JD-800’s two-stage multi-effects section, complete with drag-and-drop reordering of 7 effects: chorus, phaser, enhancer, distortion, spectrum, delay, and reverb.
  • The detailed, realistic interface may be resized and features various viewpoints.
  • Polyphony has been increased in comparison to the original hardware.
  • VST3, AAX, and AU with Apple silicon support
