Sorry, that was perhaps a bit misleading. To make up for it, we have a wee gift for you: some FREE SAMPLES perhaps? Yes! Free samples to go along with our free Roland synth event: an evening with Gareth Bowen– keys player to the stars! Here, at Red Dog Music, 7pm on Thursday 27th June, Gareth, who has worked with artists including PJ Harvey and Tricky, will be showing you what some of Roland’s instruments can do.
To give you the briefest illustration of what some Roland keys can do, we’ve put together a free 67 Mb sample pack for you! Using preset acoustic and electric piano and string sounds from the Roland Jupiter 80, we’ve recorded a few chords using Ableton Live 9 and a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4, an interface of which we’re very fond.
We’ve recorded a range of some standard and more esoteric chords with roots of C and F, ready for you to throw into your sampler and mess with. Here’s a little something we quickly threw together using just 4 of the chords from the sample pack which we loaded into Ableton Live’s Simpler instrument, with a bit of a rhythm accompaniment to keep things interesting.
Free samples to free wisdom
