Bite Into GRIT

Our first addition to the FLAVR series, GRIT,  adds just the right amount of texture to your favorite dance recipes.  Influenced heavily by modern Bass House with a smattering of your other favorite EDM genres tossed in for good measure, this FLAVR instrument delivers gritty wobs suspended in creamy subs with risers to add just the right amount of tension.  


In Concert with Artistic Experts

When realizing how best to kick off the FLAVR series, it became evident that the best FLAVR comes from the best chefs.  GRIT represents the culmination of a deep partnership between Roland and expert producer, musician and DJ, SVYR (James Egbert.) With multiple chart-toppers across many popular music services, it's no surprise that he was our first choice to add some FLAVR to your dance mix. 
 

Hand Crafted Ingredients

As with all Ultra-Deep Sampled Roland Cloud virtual instruments, playback via Concerto Player provides:
  • 4 velocity layers per note
  • ADSR resonant filter for lush sustains and harmonic decays
  • Multiple instruments supported per plug in instance
  • Advanced multi-threaded loading and streaming for fast and smooth workflow
  • Best-in-class, chainable effects including convolution and classic Reverb, distortion, stereo chorus, flange, compression, and stereo delay
  • Multiple instruments supported on separate MIDI channels
  • VST and AU compatible
The recipe for GRIT consists of 29 patches and one Deep Drum Kit, a perfect compliment to GRIT.
