Sounds of Roland: A Kakehashi tribute
created by Splice Staff Picks
A tribute pack to Roland founder Ikutaro Kakehashi. From his legendary drum machines to MIDI itself, Kakehashi’s inventions have fundamentally shaped the landscape and language of popular and electronic. Explore his sonic legacy with this repack, which includes not only sounds from the iconic 808 and 909, but also samples from the lesser known 606 drum machine and pads from Roland’s Juno and Jupiter synthesizers. Also in the pack: the classic 303 bass synth sounds that started the Second Summer of Love in ‘89 and spawned the birth of acid house.
