It's hard to believe that it's 15 years since the launch of Novation's Supernova analogue-modelling synth. Its wealth of control and power was unheard of at that time, its sleek design took many a rack by storm and its groundbreaking new sounds were scattered on tracks by everyone from Orbital and Jarre to ATB.
Now you can relive those sounds with the first of two FREE SUPERNOVA SOUNDPACKS, featuring 64 of the awesome Supernova sounds for use with your Novation UltraNova or MiniNova. If you already own one of these beasts, CLICK HERE to download your FREE Supernova SoundPack!
Drawing on decades of synthesiser experience, Roland have created a performance keyboard that meets the needs of gigging keyboard players whilst retaining world-class sounds. Meet the Roland VR-09 V-Combo keyboard.
If you're a keyboard player, you'll know how important it is to have everything right at your fingertips just when you need it. You'll also be wanting realistic sounds that cut through on stage while remaining expressive and musical. Roland have listened to their customers and have come up with a professional solution that won't break your wallet or your back.
A new Roland flagship 16 x 10 USB interface for Mac and PC has been announced in the shape of the Roland Studio-Capture, along with its little cousin, the Duo-Capture Mk2. As portable USB I/O goes, the Roland Studio-Capture takes the prize for microphone connectivity. Boasting twelve premium “VS” mic preamps, the new rackmount Studio version of the current range of Roland Capture interfaces will no doubt please many producers and musicians who wish for simplicity and quality.
Enhancing the ubiquitous line of BOSS compacts, Roland have announced the production of three more flavours of guitar goodness, the TE-2 Tera Echo, DA-2 Adaptive Distortion and MO-2 Multi Overtone. Each give away their sonic character in their name (as with many of the BOSS compacts that have gone before them), and each is just as useable, but a new BOSS DSP technology may be about to change the playing field…
Roland have today announced two brand new recorders - the CD-2u SD/CD recorder and the SD-2u SD recorder. Both are designed to be easy to use and operate as standalone units, allowing portable 2-track recording straight to CD-R/CDRW or SD/SDHC cards. Apart from the inclusion of a CD drive on the CD-2u, both recorders share common features and benefit from Roland's innovative technology.
Novation have just announced a new product at NAMM - the Novation LaunchKey. Available in 25, 49 and 61 note versions, this excellent range of controller keyboards packs intuitive hands-on control, transport buttons, a synth-action keyboard, powerful software and velocity-sensitive Launchpad pads into a fantastically low priced controller! What's more is that it can even work alongside an iPad, for example, with Novation's new Launchkey iPad synth or Launchpad apps!
