Roland Wave Expansion Boards — The Composer’s Toolkit
Before virtual instrument plug-ins became commonplace, Roland keyboards and sound modules were the pro solution for accessing a wide variety of high-quality sounds in one place. Instruments like the JV-1080, XP-80, XV-5080, and numerous others offered the ability to expand their sounds with user-installable expansion boards, each loaded with a specialized sampled waveform set for different styles and genres.

After debuting the concept in 1992 with the JV-80 synth, Roland’s wave expansion board releases eventually grew to over 30 titles across two formats and multiple generations of supported instruments. For two-plus decades, SRX and SR-JV80 boards were an everyday staple for the world’s top producers, composers, and performers, and their sounds have been heard in countless hit songs, film soundtracks and all types of media.

Plug Ibto a Classic
The SRX software synthesizer plug-ins bring the well-loved sounds of Roland’s legacy SRX and SR-JV80 wave expansion boards to your modern music production workflow. Digital Circuit Behavior (DCB) technology reproduces every nuance and detail, fusing the original sample ROM with advanced behavior modeling that replicates the hardware’s digital components and circuitry. Sounds can be edited via an intuitive interface and saved in the plug-in for use in different projects.

Hardware Integration
Each SRX plug-in features deep synth editing parameters to customize sounds any way you like. Knobs and sliders on contemporary Roland hardware synthesizers like the SYSTEM-8 can map to the plug-ins, speeding up your workflow with direct, hands-on control.
