  • Whats so Special about the Roland V-synth?

    Even Doe They are a little dated Jordan Ruddes has 2 on hes live rig

    and that other guy that Plays in the Inmortal(phill) Has one, on hes live Rig.





    And what versions is the best one ? is The rack version the exact same as the keyboard version?

    I think rack has d50 card included? I forgot. I had the keyboard version.

    Examplary user interface, incredible keybed, import own samples. I always used the dual dbeam, bloody cool

    So very easy to program patches. The sound has somekind fidelity I cant explain. Vast i/o at the back.

    I cant believe they go under $1k used

        The original V-Synth miss was a huge regret for me. Not even the GT held the emotional connection, that is why I sold it in a financial pinch. I would not have done that with the original. It was Roland's D-50 For the modern age, but so much more. Many of the sounds on the 1.5 version, especially the moog patch were wonderful. It could be a D-50 if you so wanted, even reducing the bit rate to emulate a perfect copy. With the PG-1000 you could essentially have a D-50 and then transfer it back to a V at any time. The original is by far my favorite V-Synth and one of Roland's top 5 of all times. If you love Roland it is the ultimate collectors piece along with the D-50 and Jupiter 8.

          yeah me too, sort of. sold it to pay for my digital piano. miss it. oh yeah, the "fidelity" I mentioned, I think I meant "creamy" sounding

            Wow. I hated it as was glad to get rid of it.



            It sounded stale to me compared to the JP-8000, MS-2000, and Juno-106. The sampler wasn't as good as Kontakt either. Nothing about it captured me like the JV-1080 or the MC-909.

                I have never wanted a synth as much as I wanted V-Synth when it was unveiled.



                The demo, that used this patch(I guess):

                http://www.synthmania.com/Roland%20V...0LetMePray.mp3

                blew my mind, and I have been searching that demo all over the place, but it seems to have disappeared.



                The control of the time and pitch is still an intriguing feature, and I think there still isn't hardware alternative for VariPhrase.



                I still want V-Synth badly.



                And "let me pray" that Roland makes one more V-Synth. Perhaps embedded in their next workstation and conventional sampler(next to VariPhrase of course, which I'm more interested of). Perhaps they could also open up its structures for user to create their own patches in modular fashion.
                I am wanting, I am thinking
                To arise and go forth singing,
                Sing my songs and say my sayings,
                Hymns ancestral harmonizing,
                Lore of kindred lyricking.
                In my mouth the words are melting;
                Utterances overflowing
                To my tongue are hurrying,
                Even against my teeth they burst.

                    In this case i think Fasting would get better results in this case

                      Or hunger strike! All V-Synth fans, lets go on hunger strike until Roland releases a new V-Synth!!!

                      After that I will be fasting for so long, that I can afford one.

                        If you mean the Arabic Chant type demo, that was very good but almost impossible to find as you say..

                          V-Synth...



                          Love the idea and looks.. Not impressed with the direction they took (reduced interface and real sounds).. Not strong enough soundwise to press the button on one for the cost...



                          This was a better package for me:






                          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESeI5NovfUA





                          Still look forward to Roland doing another synth... This form factor and lots of controls or a bigger synth styled like the V-Synth but more controls would be nice...

                            Are you talking about the track or the patch?

                              Buy one now while it's still cheaper than a Juno 106
