Marcus Clef ROM-500

Marcus Clef has released ROM-500, a SF2 player with custom loops made with Synthedit.

ROM-500 uses MIDI files to play SF2 loops, in a similar way as REX files, so it supports tempo variations. This lets you create totally new loops from the original.

R0M-500 features

  • Multiple instances VST Instument
  • 170 Mb SF2 with various loops (169 Loops @ 96 to 160 BPM)
  • 169 MIDI files
  • 2 ADSR Env for Filter and Amp stages
  • 1 Moog type Lo-pass filter, with adjustable Cutoff and Resonance
  • Master gain adjustment
  • Warm function for boost and distortion on signal
  • Automation of parameters
  • No latency
  • Intuitive GUI
  • You can load your own soundfonts

You can get ROM-500 at Rapidshare or

A REX 2 version is also available at Rapidshare as well as a light version which only includes the plug-in.

Note: The plug-in’s presets expect the soundfont file in a specific location, read the comments below if you’re having trouble getting it to play.

Update 24-04-2007: Since the plug-in is not available anymore from the links above you can download it from (download size: 94MB)

  • If this plug-in doesn’t load properly you might need to move the SFZ file to another folder where ROM-500 expects it.

    This plug-in is also quite CPU intensive, so use with caution.

    thx very mch , but my problem is “plugin doesn

  • I get this popup when loading ROM-500, so I make those folders on my drive and move the ROM-500 sf2 file to that location. I think this problem occurs because the presets have the path to the sf2 file included.

    What you could also do is just load the plug-in, close the error message and use the load button (see here) to open the sf2 file manually. That works for me as well.
