Oliver Schmitt, also known as SOUNDS OF REVOLUTION (SOR), keeps producing his acclaimed soundset series. This soundset is one of the most well-liked ones we’ve ever produced. The second JD 800 soundset includes 64 patches as well, including slow-evolving soundscapes, dark tones, twisted ambiences, galactic textures, many classic/retro items, technoid material, amazing dream & trance pads (you’ve never heard them before, believe us!), house chords, and unheard leads.

This cult machine still has great sound! There is no substitute if you enjoy Jean-Michel Jarre.

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.

Although it was first released in 1991, it still sounds incredibly modern. It debuted at a time when manufacturers of synthesizers were trying to limit the physical controls on the synthesizer to a data entry wheel and a few buttons to navigate through a limited menu. With the JD800, Roland adopted a completely different strategy with a sizable number of sliders and buttons that were summarized and prominently displayed in the pertinent sections.

Note: 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!!

SOR is a must for any electronic musician. Their versatile and fast applicable sounds fit excellent to any playback. The JD800 sounds are perfect for styles like trance. The sounds of SOR belong to my fixed sound repertoire.

My first contact with SOR was through their famous JD800 trilogy with its unbelievable atmospheres and complex modulation pads.Today I use most of their sets in my productions. Sound programming could not be better – awesome!

Warm und analog klingende Pads bis zu Retro und FX-Sounds, 303 Emulationen und Danceleads, verschiedene Arpeggiosounds. Das Repertoir ist sehr gut gemischt und die Sounds klingen nie billig. Von dezent bis druckvoll und gelegentlich auch mal bissig kommen die Sounds rüber, jedoch niemals unangenehm. Sie laden oft ein, etwas zu verweilen und spontan damit zu spielen. Der ein oder andere Sound wird einem vielleicht bekannt vorkommen, aber es gibt auch sehr viele Nuancen, die ich aus dem JD800 so noch nicht gehört habe. Besonders die Pads und der ein oder andere Retro-Sound haben mich auch etwas beeindruckt. Von den internen Effekten wurde meist Gebrauch gemacht, was dem JD800 und den Sounds zum Teil den eigenen Charakter verleiht.Die Bänke sind nicht nach Sound-Typen sortiert und auch innerhalb der Bänke liegen die Sounds thematisch nicht in Reihenfolge vor. In jeder Bank sind also alle Soundkategorien vorhanden. Da man die JD800-Bänke auch einzeln erwerben kann, erhält man so immer von jedem etwas. Die Patches benutzen übrigens ausschließlich die internen Wellenformen.

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