Oliver Schmitt aka SOUNDS OF REVOLUTION (SOR) continues his highly acclaimed soundset series distributed by Resonance Sound.
This JD800 soundset is one of our most popular soundsets for actual electronic productions.

Each JD 800 soundset contains 64 patches: slowly evolving soundscapes, dark tones, twisted ambiences, galactic textures, many classic/retro stuff, technoid material, incredible dream & trance pads (you´ve never heard before – believe us !), house chords, unheard leads…

This cult machine still sounds fantastic! If you like Jean-Michel Jarre, too, there is no alternative.

We ´got a fantastic review in the German KEYS – Magazine and at (only german)

SOR Revolution JD800/990 Vol.2+3 is also available!

For me, the Roland JD800 is still one of the most powerful and fascinating synthesizers of all time. In a way, it was a forerunner of the current trend for virtual analog synthesizers. Not so much in terms of sound, but in terms of the extremely practical programming interface.

Even though it was released back in 1991, it still sounds stunningly contemporary. It appeared at a time when synthesizer manufacturers were trying to reduce the number of physical controls on the synthesizer to a data entry wheel and a few buttons to navigate through a small menu. With the JD800, Roland took a completely different approach with a large number of buttons and sliders, which were summarized and clearly identified in the relevant sections.

NOTE: Roland JD990 users can order the JD800 Trilogy as well, ´cause we converted each sound in den JD990 format (*.MIDI)! The demo track includes patches of Revolution JD800/990 Vol.1-3.

Ian Carey & Brad Holland
Being fans of classic Roland Gear (but not the factory sounds) Oliver really blew us away with his AMAZING banks. The JD800 has a new lease of life and is now in constant use. The JP8080 banks are hugely addictive with each patch being really relevant and useful, which is very refreshing considering the saturated market of mediocre soft synth patch banks. Congratulations Resonance sound. we can’t wait to hear more… YOU GUYS ROCK!!

…es gibt auch sehr viele Nuancen, die ich aus dem Roland JD800 so noch nicht gehört habe. Besonders die Pads und Retro-Sounds haben mich beeindruckt. […] außerordentlich gute Patches

RW Keys
Die Roland JD800 Serie des Programmieres Oliver Schmitt besticht vor allem durch ihren elektronischen Purismus. Hier findet sich Material für jeden Frequenz- und Härtebereich.
