Roland Introduces New Flagship Synth Module


Roland says that, wth the development of SuperNATURAL sound and Behavior Modeling technology, they have blurred the boundary between acoustic and electronic instruments. Built upon these core technologies, they tell us that the new INTEGRA-7 gives musicians a gold mine of the latest SuperNATURAL sounds in a fast-access, fully stocked 16-part module. The powerhouse rack comprises a "greatest hits" collection of sounds from Roland's flagship keyboards and V-Drums modules, plus a coveted lineup from the legacy SRX library. It also introduces a new technology called Motional Surround, a 17-part ambience engine that lets you graphically control the distance and position of each part within 360-degree sound field. A Roland spokesperson told Sonic State, "With the immense power of the INTEGRA-7, you can create amazingly realistic and detailed orchestral arrangements, immersive, spatial sounds, and beyond."

Specs say USB support 24 bits / 96kHz, but it doesn't say if we could have some sort of Total Integration of Integra in a DAW with a VST/AU plugin?

Any clue?

If it doesn't say it, then it doesn't have it?

When I read "Editor", that means no audio through the plugin. So you get recall of settings but still have to route the audio separately, which is how other VST/AU editors I've used work.

To me "total integration" means the VST has audio I/O just like any softsynth or effect and is still only available for Virus.

You can be sure if the audio routing was included it would justify more than a bullet in a list.

I do like that they are going for a new disgn approach! Less colours and plastic are always welcome.

Wow.. I am beyond underwhelmed. This company knows how to make good hardware. Now they just need to make an interesting synth. Can they do it?

You obviously haven't spent any amount of time with the Jupiter 80.

Nice!!! A few months from now, they'll come out with the keyboard version w/sampling capabilities! It'll be nice if Roland could fuse this unit with the V-Synth GT!!! Damn That'll be sweet!!

Although a fine product it may be a harder sell in these days of Komplete 8 et al than when say, the JV-2080/XV-5080 came out.

I still have a 2080 by the way and I kinda like its darker, grungier sound. When synths start sounding too polished I perversely start looking for ways to mess them up!

Roland's policy of evolution may entice many 'legacy model' owners to upgrade. Unless its around $1,000 bucks though (which I doubt) I won't be one of them. I use hardware modules to quickly access sounds and sketch out arrangements in MIDI. Once I want to get obsessed with sounds I will go to software synths. Some hardware sounds make the cut, most don't.

Its a new world synth I first walked into a music store to buy a spanking new Juno 60 that was 'MIDI ready'(pending CV to MIDI conversion!)
