Roland's Zen-Core engine lets instruments share synth sounds

  Roland's Zen-Core engine lets instruments share synth sounds Roland basically abandoned pure analog synths. Instead it's been focused on improving its digital instruments and software that pay homage to the past, while embracing the future. But here's the thing, thanks to powerful audio processors there's very little these days keeping one synth engine tied to any particular device; The Microfreak borrows heavily from Mutuable Instruments Plaits and the Organelle runs patches built in the cross-platform, for instance. Roland has apparently decided this is a harbinger of the future of synthesis and so it's launching Zen-Core, a synth engine that will work across a wide swath of its instruments.

Explore Moog analog synthesizers and other instruments for electronic music , designed and built in Asheville, NC. Four instruments from Moog 's semi-modular family of analog synthesizers (Matriarch, Grandmother, Mother-32, and DFAM) connect together in a new exploratory composition.

The app is free to download, but to get the full effect, you'll have to subscribe for as low as .99 a month. Animoog takes its sounds from Moog Synthesizer 's massive library of synth sounds so that you Are you a musician ? What's your favorite app and how does it help you make sweet, sweet

If you're a musician (or fan) whose concerts got scrapped over coronavirus concerns, you'll at least have more tools to produce music when you're at home. To start, Moog has made its Minimoog Model D iOS synth app available for free. It wasn't hugely expensive to start, but this could make it easy to recreate the first portable synth and slip some Kraftwerk- or Dr. Dre-inspired sounds into your latest track. Moog didn't say how long the price change would last, but you might want to act quickly.

Not to be left out, Korg is doing the same for its Kaossilator apps, which normally cost close to $20. Android artists can grab the software for no charge until March 20th, 2020, while the iOS crowd has until March 31st to get iKaossilator. Either app makes the most sense if you're more into looping audio and variety than strict technical realism, but that may be all you need to add some spice to a future hit.
