With the development of SuperNATURAL sound and Behavior Modeling technology, Roland has blurred the boundary between acoustic and electronic instruments, creating the INTEGRA-7 gives musicians a gold mine of the sounds in a fast-access, 16-part module.
This powerhouse rack comprises a "greatest hits" collection of sounds from Roland's flagship keyboards and V-Drums modules, plus a coveted lineup from the legacy SRX library. It also introduces a new technology called Motional Surround, a 17-part ambience engine that lets you graphically control the distance and position of each part within 360-degree sound field. With the immense power of the INTEGRA-7, you can create amazingly realistic and detailed orchestral arrangements, immersive, spatial sounds, and beyond.
Super Natural Powered Music Production
The core of the INTEGRA-7 is its SuperNATURAL sound engine with Behavior Modeling technology. SuperNATURAL not only mirrors the sounds of acoustic instruments, it emulates the behavior of instruments when they're played. With SuperNATURAL, sounds come to life under your fingers. Go deep inside the programming engine and customize your own sounds, or let the INTEGRA-7 do it all for you. With so many great sounds onboard, and with the INTEGRA-7's organic response to how you play your keyboard/controller, you'll experience a new level of realism and effortless expression.
SuperNATURAL Acoustic Tones
The SuperNATURAL acoustic tones built into the INTEGRA-7 do not merely reproduce the sound of acoustic instruments, they also use Behavior Modeling Technology to simulate the when it is played. A dedicated sound engine optimized for each type of instrument analyzes the phrases you play, automatically differentiating between chordal and melodic playing to most authentic and expressive performance.
In addition to the expressive acoustic tones, you'll find a SuperNATURAL drum engine derived from Roland V-Drums. Thanks to Behavior Modeling Technology, the INTEGRA-7 can groove like a real drummer. Drum kits respond smoothly and naturally to velocity, with seamless tonal transitions from soft to loud. Play fast drum fills that don't sound like fake machine-gun fire, and create fluid snare, tom, and cymbal rolls with real-time control of their speed and volume via mod lever. The drum engine even has its own ambience effect, plus six COMP+EQ sets, which you can apply to the drum instruments individually.
The INTEGRA-7 is loaded with SuperNATURAL synth tones that meticulously recreate the fat sound of beloved vintage synthesizers, their expressive filters, and unique envelope behaviors. Hundreds of PCM waveforms are onboard as well . a treasure trove of classic digital-synth sounds prevalent in the '80s and '90s. SuperNATURAL synth tones also feature four types of LPFs. Each filter behaves differently, even if their cutoff and resonance parameters are the same. Each filter can be personalized via parameter settings and real-time control of cutoff frequency and resonance.
INTEGRA-7 Editor for iPad
A custom iPad Editor App is ready for iPad users who wish to control the INTEGRA-7's synth parameters, part mixer, and Motional Surround remotely, as well as selecting sounds and reading/loading the 16-part Studio Sets. The INTEGRA-7 Editor is free to download from the App Store.
