ð¦ The Roland modules are renowned for ambient pads but also lots of iconic 90s dance sounds. The pizzicato strings pluck. Organ tong. Rave organs. Trance stabs. They also tend to have 909 & 808 drum samples. This is why I've kept my XP-50, as old as she is. If you learn how to edit their time variant filters & amplifiers, & LFOs, & considering their synth patches are made up of up to 4 sample layers, their synth engine is pretty powerful. Eric Piersing used to design their patches.
ð¦ Roland's orchestral samples also sound great in a mix. When you preview them on their own they don't sound as spectacular as boutique sample libraries. But use them in a track & everything just sounds right.
