Hello everyone,
I am a Roland addict that has used everything from the first Roland rompler (The U20) to the mighty Roland XV5080 to make music with BIAB
I would like PG Music to collaborate somewhat with Roland to use the Roland Cloud versions of the Sound Canvas and 5080 in a "plug n play" way
any takers ?
these products were so much industry standards they sound excellent together
It would be so nice to be able to use a simple ultraportable with BIAB 2021 to make music
thanks for your listening

Bernard,

You have a pretty nice idea but I do not think it would work. Other than midi, Roland does not have a good history of working with other companies. Look at the software provided for some of Roland's product with USB ports and you will find many older products have out dated device drivers.

Roland built surface controllers, USB interfaces and USB to midi interfaces for Cakewalk while Cakewalk was a Roland subsidiary. Roland refuses to provide updated drivers, give support or permission to Cakewalk to develop new drivers in house.

Last, Roland has not given any indication that it desires to broaden it's subscription business model.

In addition to what Jim stated, any software synth Roland had would be 32-bit and would need to be updated.

EDIT: my thanks to Jim who privately pointed out the Roland Cloud is browser based. My comment about 32-bit is therefore not relevant. In the words of Saturday Night Live, “never mind”.

thanks to the experts; I will stick with my Trusty Roland Hardware on one side and BIAB audiophile on the other side
best regards, Guys

one last comment though: Things do evolve: I have bougth The Roland Cloud SRX as a lifetime
product for $129, thus not on a subsciption basis
I know lots of people refuse to use the subsciption model, thus maybe Roland will have to make a step back and cater to what the users want; It would be great to have a virtual 5080 in replacement to TTS-1 whicj is a rathe feeble attempt

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
