Roland just dropped another software version of a legendary synth

Digital or analog — which do you prefer?

Roland has just release a software version of its D-70 synthesizer.

The digital version features 64 synth patches, sampled from the original model, and is only available for subscribers of the Roland Cloud service, Anthology 1990.

First released in 1990, the D-70 was pioneering in its ability to combine sample playback with digital synthesis and on-board effects. It was the follow-up to 1987's D-50, one of Roland's most famous and popular instruments, which is already available in a digital version on Roland Cloud.

Synth fans can sign-up to Roland Cloud for a $19.95 a month with access to the D-70 and D-50 included, plus digital versions of Roland's Juno-106, SH-101 and Jupiter-8.
