(Roland | Posted 2007-02-13)
Roland is now shipping the new
MV-8800 Production Studio: a new standard in production power and
flexibility. With powerful hands-on features, realtime BPM matching, a
fully-loaded sound library, a host of modern and vintage effects,
CD-burning and mastering capabilities and an ability to incorporate a
VGA monitor and mouse, this new studio brings the best of the hardware
and software worlds together under one hood.
The new flagship MV-8800 is a fully equipped sampler and synthesizer
with parameters that can be edited and automated with the assignable
sliders and/or with an optional VGA monitor and mouse. It’s also an
advanced multitrack recorder equipped with an automated 24-channel
stereo mixer and mega effects processor. Mastering tools are provided as
well, including a parametric mastering EQ, enhancer, expander, multiband
compressor, mastering limiter, and soft-clip algorithm with output
Realtime BPM matching allows producers to synchronize hundreds of
loops, hits, or vocal phrases at once by simply tapping the tempo into
the MV. With the new MV-8800, creating loop-based tracks on the fly, all
locked together in perfect pitch and time sync, has never been so easy.
The MV-formatted sound library that’s preinstalled on the hard drive
allows users to start composing right out-of-the-box. Over 50 newly
created drum kits are provided, including a special collection of 16
vintage drum machines including the legendary Roland TR-808 and TR-909.
Acoustic and electric pianos, strings, guitars, horns, synth basses, and
other essential instruments are also included.
An incredible lineup of modern and vintage effects is built into the
MV-8800, including models of classic Roland SRV reverbs, SDD-320 Chorus,
325 Flanger, Boss BF-2 and HF-2 pedals, and the legendary RE-201 Space
Echo. The MV8800’s multi-effects processor includes an Analog Modeling
Bass that turns the MFX engine into a virtual SH-style bass synthesizer.
All MFX knob tweaks can be automated as you mix.
