Roland has released an update to its Zenology Pro synthesizer, which includes a brand new user interface, the addition of 8 reverb effects, and more. In addition, Roland Cloud Manager has been updated.
Roland’s sound has had a huge impact on music for decades, arguably defining genres such as Techno, House, Rap, Trap and hip hop, and being heavily influenced by pop, rock and film music. This long legacy ends with the ZEN-Core synthesis system. Zenology 2.0 is a major update of the ZEN-Core synthesizer plugin. New features include an improved user interface, new structure view, new visual feedback, and more.
