Running on the Edge of a Blade
Synthwave conjures images of digital landscapes and retrofuturism. The aesthetics of the genre are drawn from both electro and the ineffable energy of the ‘80s. At the same time, the heart of the sound remains steeped in house and EDM styles.
Roland Cloud proudly presents our Synthwave collection! These 256 patches for the JUNO-106, SYSTEM-8, JX-3P, and JUPITER-8 are the tools you need to create immaculate synthwave architecture. These dramatic saw waves, pulsing basses, and twinkling arps will help your compositions bloom into dreamscapes of paradise and illusion.
Roland hardware synths were critical to establishing the sonic reverie of the 1980s. Use our ACB recreations of these revolutionary instruments to saturate your tracks with bold and beautiful temperatures and create a reality all your own.
JX-3P Synthwave Patches
Long considered a secret weapon in Roland's arsenal of '80s legends, the JX-3P remains a powerful synth engine in its own right. No surprise that artists like The Future Sound of London, Orbital, and Thomas Dolby have all utilized the instrument. Powerful patches in the Synthwave collection like "Dream String" and "Planet Earth" expand on the JX-3P's sonic legacy.
