Looking to add some new sounds to your live rig or studio setup? The SRX-12 might make you sound superstitious.
A True XV-Series Synth
At the heart of this half-rack module is Roland’s most advanced synthesis engine ever—based on a powerful 4-Tone architecture with stereo waveforms per Tone and expressive Matrix Control. There are 1,083 high-quality waveforms in internal memory (equivalent to 64MB), giving the XV-2020 a broad range of sounds that are further enhanced via onboard reverb, chorus and a choice of 40 multi-effects. Edited sounds can be saved to User memory.
It’s hard to believe that a half-rack module can hold up to 192MB of waveforms, but that’s exactly what you get by adding two optional SRX-Series Wave Expansion Boards. These quality-intensive boards each contain 64MB of waveforms and hundreds of fresh, inspiring presets. So whether you want the absolute finest grand piano sounds or drums—or a killer collection of dance sounds—simply pop in any two of the nine SRX titles presently available.
Easy USB Connectivity
With its built-in USB port the XV-2020 simplifies everything from MIDI connections to sound editing. Just connect a USB cable from the –2020 to your computer, install the included driver software and you’re set! This feature also makes the XV-2020 the perfect companion to laptop-based systems since no external MIDI interface is required. And you get the power of a 16-part multitimbral synth capable of producing virtually any sound imaginable.
Editing Software Included
Following Roland’s latest trend of integrating hardware and software, the XV-2020 includes a powerful editing program for Mac or PC. Just install the software from the included CD-ROM, make sure the USB cable is connected, and you can tweak everything from multimode filters to envelopes and effects—or even alter the semi-modular Structure Types—using a sleek graphic interface. It’s a great way to harness the full power of the XV synth engine.
