Powerhouse Rack for Fast, Fluid Workflow

Los Angeles, CA, August 31, 2012 — Roland is proud to announce the INTEGRA-7 SuperNATURAL Sound  Module, a next-generation rack unit that employs the company’s very  latest innovations in sound technology. Loaded with over 6,000 highly  expressive sounds (SuperNATURAL sounds, PCM sounds, and all 12 SRX  expansion boards), independent SuperNATURAL acoustic, synth, and drum sounds, and much more, the flagship INTEGRA-7 brings a  new realm of creative power to keyboardists and composers both live and  in the studio.
With  the development of SuperNATURAL sound and Behavior Modeling, Roland has  blurred the boundary between acoustic and electronic instruments. Built upon these core technologies, the  INTEGRA-7 gives musicians a goldmine of the latest SuperNATURAL sounds  in a fast-access, fully stocked 16-part module. With the immense power  of the INTEGRA-7, musicians can create amazingly realistic and detailed orchestral arrangements, immersive spatial sounds, and  beyond.
The  powerful rack module also comprises a “greatest hits” collection of  sounds from Roland’s flagship keyboards and modules, and is loaded with SuperNATURAL drum kit sounds derived from  V-Drums. In addition, the INTEGRA-7 introduces a new technology called  Motional Surround, a 17-part ambience engine (16 internal parts plus one  external part) that lets users graphically control the distance and position of each part within a 360-degree sound  field.
Housed  in a stylish and rugged metal chassis, the INTEGRA-7 is beautifully  designed and built to withstand decades of use, whether in a studio or a touring road rack. The internal components  are premium grade, including high-quality, low-noise D/A converters.
The INTEGRA-7 is equipped with multiple dedicated effects engines, so users don't have to worry about CPU load. Each of the 16 parts can have their own multi-effects and EQ, rather than sharing the same effects for all parts.
Across  the INTEGRA-7’s front panel are dedicated buttons for accessing sounds  and effects quickly, plus a large value dial surrounded by navigation keys. The LCD is easy to see, with  adjustable contrast and brightness to suit the viewing angle and  lighting conditions. A convenient USB memory port is provided for  storing settings.
On  the rear panel is an array of versatile connectors, including stereo  XLR outputs, eight individual 1/4-inch phone outs, a digital (coaxial) output, MIDI IN/OUT/THRU jacks, and a USB port  that supports audio streaming at rates up to 24-bit/96 kHz. For  convenience and flexibility, input jacks for feeding external audio to  the Motional Surround processor are provided on both the rear and front panels.
A  custom INTEGRA-7 Editor app lets iPad® users control the INTEGRA-7’s  synth parameters, part mixer, and Motional Surround remotely via the INTEGRA-7’s USB connection (using an Apple iPad Camera  Connection Kit) or via the Roland WNA1100-RL Wireless USB adaptor. In  addition, the app can be used for selecting sounds and reading/loading  the 16-part Studio Sets. Also available is the Motional Surround VSTi Editor, which allows SONAR users to control and  automate Motional Surround parameters from a plug-in within their DAW.
Roland’s  new A-88 and A-49 MIDI Controller Keyboards are perfect partners for  the INTEGRA-7. The SuperNATURAL mode button on the A-88/A-49 automatically assigns the INTEGRA-7’s most appropriate  parameters to the mod lever, knobs, and D-BEAM for controlling the  selected SuperNATURAL sound.
