Roland has announced Roland Cloud 4.8, an update that brings the JV-1080 synthesizer to the cloud-based suite of high-resolution software synthesizers and sampled instruments.

The most famous of the Roland PCM powerhouses, the Roland JV-1080 is the ‘down to the circuit’ inspiration for the Roland Cloud JV-1080 software plugin. It was a huge success with artists and producers, and eventually lead to even more powerful models in the series such as the JV-2080 and XV-5080.

While the Roland Cloud JV-1080 has the look, feel and factory patches of the original, it has the expanded effects, additional waveforms, and increased polyphony of its successors. It’s like the JV-1080 you know and love, but enhanced to go toe to toe in your DAW with any contemporary software synthesizer.

The JV-1080 is now available to Roland Cloud Core Members via Roland Cloud Manager, and it is also included with the 30 day free trial.

New users can sign up through Roland Cloud’s revamped billing system which offers more payment options (including PayPal,) a simpler and secure checkout experience, and pricing availability that supports many regional currencies.
