Timeless for good reason
1986 and the years that followed saw the harware synthesizer inspiration for Roland Cloud's Anthology 1986 grace some of the most iconic New Wave, Rock, Funk, and Pop tracks to come out of the Eighties. Although this synth is a perfect addition to any track or composition requiring a retro vibe, it drops perfectly into modern rock, ambient, EDM or pretty much any genre seeking a perfect synth sound. The original was availble new from 1986-1989 and we've reintroduced it as part of your Roland Cloud Core membership.
This analog masterpiece was known for it's warmth, fullness, and class; boasting some of the richest string, pad, and bass tones ever produced by an analog synthesizer. As one of the last flagship analog synths produced by Roland, it is characterized by warm, rich pads and deep, vibrant strings. Over the years, these tones have become the aural cornerstone for many legendary tracks.
