"Synthesizers are in just about every style of modern music, so you need something versatile, authentic, and forward-thinking. ZENOLOGY embodies nearly 50 years of synthesizer research and development. Its roots go back to the dawn of synthesis. Its future is what you make it. 

For decades, Roland sounds have had a massive influence on music. A string of legendary instruments defined genres like techno, house, rap, trap, and hip hop, and deeply influenced pop, rock, and film music. This experience has culminated in the ZEN-Core Synthesis System. It's the most advanced sound engine we’ve ever made, powering our professional synthesizers like JUPITER-X and FANTOM, used on stages and in studios around the world. 

ZENOLOGY is an expandable plug-in version of the ZEN-Core Synthesis System. ZEN-Core is based on discrete synth voices—each containing a flexible oscillator, filter, amplifier, dual step-LFOs, and lush effects. It mixes multiple synthesis types, combining vintage Roland oscillators and filters with PCM waves capable of PCM-SYNC and cross-modulation. Layer up to four voices in a single tone for rich, complex sounds, both classic and modern. 

With ZENOLOGY you have access to an ever-expanding, always-evolving universe of sound. Driven by the powerful ZEN-Core Synthesis System, a steady stream of new sounds and expansions focus on specific genres and instrument types, or feature sounds from leading artists. 

ZENOLOGY puts the ZEN-Core Synthesis System in your DAW and provides access to a universe of amazing sounds—but this is only the beginning. In the coming months, ZENOLOGY will get new synth engine expansions and grow into a sound designer's dream with deep editing capabilities.  The ZENOLOGY plug-in works in AU, AAX, and VST formats and is ready for use on your tracks.

ZENOLOGY will soon support Model Expansions for perfect recreations of classic Roland synthesizers like the JUPITER-8, JUNO-106, SH-101, JX-8P, and more. They use Analog Behavior Modeling to capture the essence of these legendary instruments and are optimized for high polyphony with an interface inspired by the original—but reimagined for use in your DAW. "

"Roland Cloud is a growing collection of virtual instruments, creative applications, and sound expansions for use in modern workflows. Producer, beatmaker, gigging musician, or just getting started — you'll find something to inspire you. From techno, acid house, and ambient to trap, rock, and hip hop, Roland Cloud has instruments and tools that will elevate your tracks.

Use over 50 Roland virtual instruments. Embrace the future with the ZENOLOGY Software Synthesizer that lets you share your sounds across software and hardware with ZEN-Core. And keep your music fresh with genre and instrument-specific patches, patterns, and sound packs for both Roland software and hardware instruments.
