* Although Roland has tested numerous configurations, and has determined that on average, a computer system similar to that described above will permit normal operation of the SRX ELECTRIC PIANO Software Synthesizer, Roland cannot guarantee that a given computer can be used satisfactorily with the SRX ELECTRIC PIANO Software Synthesizer based solely on the fact that it meets the above requirements. This is because there are too many other variables that may influence the processing environment, including differences in motherboard design and the particular combination of other devices involved.
In the early 2000s, Roland’s SRX expansion boards offered users genre-centric micro-suites of sounds to infuse specific instrumentation into their synthesizers. These high-fidelity samples expanded players’ pallets for music-making, plain and simple. The collections have also inspired devotees who consider the SRX boards essential to their production tool kit.
SRX hardware boards are nearly impossible to find and are exclusively available from Roland Cloud. Our collection of VSTs pay homage to the original SRX boards and are ready to be utilized in a variety of workflows.
