Roland Jupiter-X, Jupiter-Xm Get Vocal Designer, Cloud Connect Add-Ons



Roland has introduced two new add-ons for their Jupiter-X and Jupiter-Xm synthesizers.


Roland has announced a new service called Cloud Connect, a wireless system that enables you to install new sounds on your Jupiter-X or Jupiter-Xm synth from your phone.


Using it should be as simple as plugging the WC-1 wireless adapter into your Jupiter hardware and syncing it to the companion Roland Cloud iOS/Android app. You can use this to browse, audition and install Sound Packs, Wave Expansions, Model Expansions and more.


The search engine is designed to make it easy to find compatible content, and your selections are automatically synced with your Roland Account and the Roland Cloud Manager software on your PC/Mac.


In addition, Roland has also announced a brand-new Model Expansion, as well; Vocal Designer brings the company’s vocal synthesis technology to the Jupiter-X range, enabling you to control and modulate your synth sounds (the carrier) with the vocal input (the modulator).


There are 26 vocal synthesis algorithms included. As well as all-new sounds, you also get access to classic vocoder tones derived from legendary Roland VP series like choirs, ensembles, robots and more. If you want to get creative, you can use any analogue audio or USB input as the modulator, not just your voice.


Audio Demos:

Support for the Vocal Designer Model Expansion and Roland Cloud Connect is included with the free Version 2.0 update for the JUPITER-X and JUPITER-Xm.


Roland Cloud Connect will be available in January 2022 through authorized U.S. dealers for $99 and includes the WC-1 wireless adapter as well as one year of Roland Cloud Connect Pro membership for hardware and software.


The Roland Vocal Designer Model Expansion is included in the Roland Cloud Connect Pro membership and also available as a Lifetime Key (one-time purchase) for $149.
