Fat Bass, Punchy Mids and Crisp Highs

When the inspiration for Anthology 1993 was released over 25 years ago, it was hailed as 'the best synth ever produced by Roland" and "the best PCM synth ever made by anyone" by musicians worldwide.  Known for having luscious, fat bass, punchy, driving mids, and crisp and distinguished highs, it is no surprise that this synth would maintain its place of privilege in musician's racks to this day.  Best known for its "massive sound," all one needs to do is load up some strings, pads or basses and simply play a few notes to understand how this instrument received this well-deserved reputation.

With Anthology 1993 we've captured many of the subtleties, character, and personality of the original instrument and recreated a uniqueness that could only be found in the original... Until now.  

Roland Cloud Concerto at heart

Because all instruments in the Anthology Series are built on Roland Cloud Concerto, not only can you expect an intuitive experience that doesn't hinder your workflow, you can also expect a expect a performant virtual synth that doesn't bring your system to its knees.  
Concerto comes equipped with the following:

  • 48khz stereo
  • Adjustable key sensitivity
  • Fine and coarse tuning controls, both manually or via midi control for coarse tuning
  • Roland Classic Algorithmic Reverb with decay, LPF, HPF, density, wet/dry mix, and predelay
  • Decay and wet/dry mix controls
  • Per instrument Limiter toggle
  • Multiple instruments supported per plugin instance
  • Multi-threaded loading and streaming
  • VST parameter automation
