Oliver Schmitt aka SOUNDS OF REVOLUTION (SOR) continues his highly acclaimed soundset series distributed by Resonance Sound. This gem is one of our most popular soundsets for actual electronic productions.
Expect deep, moody and melodic JD800 presets, featuring an epic analogue touch, custom-built for ambient, electronica, trance, deep house or other EDM related styles.
This soundset is packed with slowly evolving soundscapes, dark tones, twisted ambiences, galactic textures, many classic/retro patches, technoid material, incredible dream/trance/ambient pads (you def. never heard before), analogue-style basses & keys, house chords, unique leads and so much more.
Even after all those years this Cult Machine of Roland still sounds fantastic! If you like Jean-Michel Jarre, too, there is no alternative. We received some fantastic reviews in the German KEYS – Magazine and at AMAZONA.de (only german).
NOTE: JD990 user can order the JD800 soundsets as well, as we converted each soundset in den JD990 format (*.MIDI)! The demo track includes patches of Revolution JD800/990 Vol.1-3.
Some personal thoughts of Oliver Schmitt aka SOR
For me, Roland JD800 is still one of the most powerful and fascinating synthesizers of all time. In a way, it was a forerunner of the current trend for virtual analog synthesizers. Not so much in terms of sound, but in terms of the extremely practical programming interface.
Even though it was released back in 1991, it still sounds stunningly contemporary. It appeared at a time when synthesizer manufacturers were trying to reduce the number of physical controls on the synthesizer to a data entry wheel and a few buttons to navigate through a small menu. With the JD800, Roland took a completely different approach with a large number of buttons and sliders, which were summarized and clearly identified in the relevant sections.
- 64 sounds (*.mid and *.syx format)
- suitable for trance & electro & ambient
- also available for JD990 users

Artist & Press Reviews
Being fans of classic Roland Gear (but not the factory sounds) Oliver really blew us away with his AMAZING banks. The JD800 has a new lease of life and is now in constant use. The JP8080 banks are hugely addictive with each patch being really relevant and useful, which is very refreshing considering the saturated market of mediocre soft synth patch banks. Congratulations Resonance sound. we can’t wait to hear more… YOU GUYS ROCK!!
Die Serie des Programmieres Oliver Schmitt besticht vor allem durch ihren elektronischen Purismus. Hier findet sich Material für jeden Frequenz- und Härtebereich.
…es gibt auch sehr viele Nuancen, die ich aus dem JD800 so noch nicht gehört habe. Besonders die Pads und Retro-Sounds haben mich beeindruckt. […] außerordentlich gute Patches.
