Roland Cloud has launched announced an update to its cloud-based suite of software synthesizers and sampled instruments.

This 5.808 update adds two new genre-based instruments to the FLAVR line-up: TRAPPED and SUGAR.

Based on the Trap and Tropical house sub-genres of EDM respectively, both have the perfect melodic patch sets to drop right into their corresponding genres. Rhythmically, and relevant to the 808Day celebration, both instruments are heavily inspired and contain modern extensions of the Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer (and lot’s of other inspiring sounds too!)

TRAPPED distills the essence of modern EDM Trap music and puts it in an easy to use, highly expressive and performant virtual instrument.

Roland Cloud Trapped

The “Trap Drums” percussion patch takes the TR-808 and expands on it in new and exciting ways. For example, TRAPPED leverages a keyboard split, with a long decay chromatic bass on the bottom end so you can play melodic bass drum lines, and puts percussive elements such as snare or clap on the top end.

TRAPPED’S long decay kick is velocity sensitive, so whether you record your performance live or build your beats in a sequencer, TRAPPED will leave you inspired.

SUGAR is inspired by the Tropical House or Trop House genre of EDM.

Roland Cloud Sugar

Although it’s a perfect addition to any producer or DJs arsenal for playing a festival, SUGAR has a deep variance of luscious melodic patches that fit perfectly in other genres and for other applications.

Both instruments are now available to Roland Cloud users.
