It's finally here, my custom soundset for the Roland JD800 and JD990. Check the demo track in the banners slide for a good impression! If you think this is a boring demo track... Also check the patch trailer, this is just a selection of patches but gives a good impression.
After making so many JV rompler patches I thought it was time to also release my JD800 soundset. It focusses strongly on the best capabilities of the JD, pads, ethereal sounds, bells, evolving sounds and strings.
It is also compatible with the more advanced JD990. In this purchase you get two separate files! There is no backwards compatibility from the 990 to the 800 with the memory cards. If you use your JD800 data cards in the 990 they will certainly work, I converted the patches in this similar way to a 990 sysex file.
What do you get?
2 SYX files, one for the JD800 and one for the JD990. They need to read a different file.
64 presets including:
- Spacious Pads
- Ethereal/airy Pads
- Aquatic Pads
- Organic bell sounds
- Evolving textures
- Modulating Effects
- A few punchy bass sounds
• This is not a sample kit
• This soundbank is compatible with all Roland JD800 and 990 models
• This is not an official Roland product, it’s a custom artist soundbank.
• You don’t need any expansion kits or rom/ram cards for this soundbank, it only uses the internal waveforms.
• These patches are stored in one native Sysex file that the Roland JD series can understand. The file is small, but all patches are in there.
• It’s recommended that you use Sysex or a similar alike program to transfer the soundbank/patches to your JD synthesizer.
Set a PAUSE time between each message, the JD's can not read on full transfer speed!!!!
Patches will be placed in the internal bank.
The biggest part of the presets is made with the EFX set to ON, you can of course use this to customise them to your liking with reverb and the pitch harmoniser. However.. Please take into account that all the effects should be on to get the best result with these sounds.
This sound bank is programmed with much love and care. Therefore I would kindly ask you to use this sound bank strictly for your personal use and not spread this for free on the web or amongst all your friends.
It is not allowed to resell these patches, please be so creative to also make your own presets. Enjoy the sounds!
