Anthology 1985

Postby timbo4000 » 09:25, 13 February 2017

Looking at the roland cloud there's a second anthology synth available from 1985. Looking back I can only guess it's possibly the juno1.
Im still not convinced about this cloud as it seems very expensive. If they were a one of buy not on subscription I would he tempted. However there are so many samples available of old roland synths that are so much cheaper that I could just put into my kontakt I don't see the point in paying for the subscription.

Ha ha just seen the same topic in the system 8 forum, sorry for doubling up. Perhaps we could have a Roland cloud link, sorry again if that's already been suggested.

Why the names in years and not naming the synths by name for what they are...

I think the synth in 1985 where the alpha Juno 1 and the alpha Juno 2

They're saving the names for the virtual recreation of those instruments, i.e. the anthology collection will be sampled recreations which are limited (being sample based), whereas the legendary collections are true simulations where you can affect/sculpt sounds as per the original hardware.

Eventually a D-50 will be in the Legendary section.

Jeremy Soule (The spearhead behind this i gather?) has pretty much said so via youtube comments, i.e.:-

I was really hyped for the legendary plugins they've put up, but i don't know if i'll subscribe yet - found them generally quite buggy and cpu intensive, as well as automation issues (Can't even automate cutoff in the grit plugin for example).

I'm running MacOS and some of the plugins were making glitch-like noises too, which is quite unusual.

However, they're much closer to hitting the bullseye than i originally gave them credit for - i'd love to see this work, and thus the more subscribers the more value for money they can bring in.
