Roland released Sound Canvas, a new iOS application that emulates perfectly the highly popular GS format sound source, along with a built-in SMF* player for playing Standard MIDI Files.
Since the first Roland Sound Canvas, the SC-55, was released in 1991, the series has become tremendously popular among desktop music hobbyists. The expression and versatility of the onboard sounds mean that the series is still used today, especially for the creation and sharing of music data. And now this popular sound source is also available as Sound Canvas for iOS, with over 1,600 sounds, MIDI data playback and the ability to turn your iPhone or iPad into a sound module when you connect an optional MIDI interface like the Roland UM-1.
- 1,600 high-quality sounds plus 63 drum sets onboard, perfect for MIDI data playback
- Two types of graphical user interface: “Sound Canvas skin” for music data creation and “Player skin” for practicing with instruments or karaoke application
- Built-in Reverb, Chorus, Delay, 2-band EQ and 64 types of insertion effects
- Versatile SMF player featuring playback options including “Loop” mode for playing a specific area of the song repeatedly and “Song List Play” for continuous playback of several SMF songs in sequence
- iPhone or iPad can be used as an external sound source, when connected to an external MIDI interface such as the Roland UM-1 (sold separately)
- Compatible with music apps that support Core MIDI
Sound Canvas app is available now for devices running iOS 8.1 and above from the Apple App Store priced at £10.99/$14.99.
