Novation Sound Collective: ROLI

Posted on 14th April 2020 by

Are you a Novation owner? The Novation Sound Collective is a platform providing free third-party software instruments and effects to all registered Novation users! Every two months you will be treated to free plugins and discounts off some awesome production tools.

This month’s offer is in association with ROLI and offers the ROLI Studio Player and ROLI Studio Drums plugins for free. This offer runs from 9th April until 11th June.

ROLI Studio Player

ROLI Studio Player puts hundreds of larger-than-life synth basses, pads, leads, FX and much more at your fingertips, generated using the company’s Equator, Strobe 2 and Cypher 2 engines; while ROLI Studio Drums is the world’s first desktop MPE drums plugin, offering 15 ready-made 16-pad sampled and synthesised drum and percussion kits.

Every one of ROLI Studio Player’s presets and ROLI Studio Drums’ percussion pads features predefined macro controls for taking command of envelopes, filters, tuning, dynamics and other bespoke sound-shaping parameters. And for polishing and transformation, four effects inserts each draw on a roster of high-quality modules – delays, distortion, reverb, chorus, etc – with two XY pad-controlled parameters apiece. ROLI Studio Player’s Smart Chords and Arpeggiator MIDI processing modules let you effortlessly generate scale-snapped chords from single-note input, and create complex three-layered arpeggios – use both together for impressive one-finger sequences.

An intuitive, versatile and endlessly rewarding electronic music double-act, ROLI Studio Player and ROLI Studio Drums will transform your existing projects and inspire entire new ones with their sublime sonics and performance-orientated controls.
