Updating roland w 30 rom
It’s a Sound Manager for the Roland W-30, S-330, S50, and S-550 Vintage Samplers.
Over on the SMFW30 Forums, Miro has released some beta info about the new Roland W-30 Software Sample Editor.
Although primitive by modern standards, the W-30's onboard sequencer was a practical way to arrange music in lieu of a (typically much more expensive) computer-based system.
Unusually, while sounds are sampled with 12-bit resolution, they are played back through a 16-bit D-A converter which, in theory at least, improves the sound quality.
Tone Editor * Import of waves with odd length * Editing of tone/subtone title * Editing of all tone/subtone parameters with waveform preview MIDI Editor * Correction of SYSEX troubles Patch Editor * Basic implementation – Load / Save / Rename and Delete patch I am really looking forward to this release.Nonetheless, the slightly "gritty" nature of the samples could be considered one of the instrument's charms.The W-30 is compatible with the sound library of Roland's S50, S330 & S550 dedicated samplers, which is now in the public domain.The workstation's back panel features a blanking-plate labelled "SCSI".
Stay tuned for more news and about about the SMFW30 software upgrade for the Roland W-30.The W-30's "Workstation" title stems from its incorporation of synthesis, sampling and MIDI sequencing capabilities.
