Roland has announced the latest evolutionary leap in the world of guitar synth technology: the GR-55 guitar synthesizer
Roland's new GR-55 guitar synthesizer has two PCM synthesizer sound engines and a COSM module engine for an overwhelming choice of sounds
In the late seventies, Roland took the sonic palette available to keyboard players and opened it up to guitarists, with the introduction on the GR-500. It was quite simply a marvel, but is positively primitive when compared to the latest evolutionary leap taken by the company with the GR-55 guitar synthesizer. Featuring a pair of independent synthesizer sound engines and a Composite Object Sound Modeling (COSM) engine, the device makes hundreds of different sounds available to the player – anything from pianos to strings, drums to synths, various acoustic and electric guitar and bass emulations, as well as numerous amplifiers.
