First expansion for Roland FA series out

Post by Hugo76 » Thu Feb 27, 2014 7:26 pm

EXP-01 Dance Trax Collection
The "greatest hits" sound collection from the eighties and nineties dance music

Roland has played an important role in the birth and evolution of electronic music such as techno, house, trance, hip-hop, trip-hop, and more. Packed with many of those iconic and legendary synth sounds, the EXP-01 is a must-have sound collection for electronic music producers. The EXP-01 contains 361 Tones, 16 Drum Kits, and 829 Waveforms.

And the FA-06's synthesis engine is going to go completely unnoticed because everyone thinks its just a rompler.

Well 80s and 90s dance was pretty awful... :shock:
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I love early 90s eurodance from the likes of Captain Hollywood, AB Logic, Culture Beat, MC Sar & The Real McCoy, Haddaway, Mr. President, Technotronic, etc. Mid 90s to present... No.

That demo sounds like rotting, pimply butt cheeks flapping in the wind. It's like a General MIDI karaoke interpretation of the 90s. It reminds me of the worst Sega Dreamcast game music, times ten.

Unfortunately, that god awful demo is just going to confirm their beliefs.
