Roland Announces Support For Silicon Macs


Roland has announced that 28 of its carefully crafted AU software musical instruments managed via Roland Cloud are now updated with native support for Apple silicon. A spokesperson told us, "Thanks to the inherent gains of the Apple architecture along with native support now available from Roland, musicians and producers can use more Roland instruments on more affordable devices than ever before."

Here's more details direct from Roland... 

Native support for Apple silicon is another example of Roland's commitment to leveraging the latest developments in computing to bring authentic, iconic sound to musicians and producers at every level. Building on nearly fifty years of synthesizer research and development, Roland uses deep circuit modeling and other advanced techniques to create inspiring new designs and to perfectly recreate the sound of legendary hardware instruments like the Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer drum machine and the JUPITER-8 and JUNO-106 keyboard synthesizers.

While the resulting sound and behavior is detailed and lifelike, it requires more processing power than some previous technologies, which focused more on efficiency than sound quality. When using software instruments that favor authentic sound and behavior, gains in computer performance are vitally important, especially to those just starting out that may not have powerful workstation computers.

  • ZENOLOGY
  • SYSTEM-1
  • SYSTEM-8
