Yellow Orange (Synth Jam) Roland XP80 with RPS

Published on Aug 25, 2019 bitleyTM

"I finally learned how to use the Roland XP80's built in RPS (Realtime Pattern Sequencer) functionality so here I am triggering four sequences on the fly; two drum patterns, two simple background synths, a baseline. Jamming on top of this with two pad sounds. RPS is actually a cool function which kind of brought an Ableton vibe to this "JV-1080 with keyboard" about four years before Live was released. Roland is a company making synthesizers — often adding an extra edge over the competition. (XP30, 50, 60, 80 and JV-1010, 1080, 2080 are similar & fully compatible instruments from about 1994-1998, later replaced by the Fantom series). The movie was edited with MovieMator Pro. Quite cool — but the rendering / processing took almost 20 hours so it was the slowest Mac application I ever tried."

  1. Thanks for reposting, Matrix :-) I wonder if anyone (else) thought about RPS in a Roland machine during the last 10 years. ;-)
