90s Rompler Vsts

So, since Roland announced the JV 1080 for the Roland Cloud today, I read about the hardware and checked some videos.
This [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
about the JV 2080 made me actually want one!^^
I mean, you can get these for cheap today and since Im using 93-98% synthesized sounds (subtractive, fm and modal synthesis) in my productions - usually just the hats and maybe a few percussion sounds are samples - I think that Id actually benefit from injecting some Romplers sounds in my tracks!
So...what do you think - is it even worth looking for a plugin, when you want the 90s Rompler sound?
Or is stuff like the carefully selected and crafted Rom sounds, menu diving, DACs etc. a key element?

Re: 90s Rompler Vsts

I have a 1080. A splendid Jack Of All Trades. Master of... a few things. I can Imagine how dearly original owners loved it.

I used it a lot with SoundDiver to edit it. I mean... it does sound good. Nice pads, especially. Capable of lots of bread-and-butter things for film scoring and pre-prod. I can be pretty awesome if you are deliberately going for that late 80's pop sound... It's ALLL over pop music of the day and films.

Look, if you were my neighbor I'd lend it to you so you can have your fun and then... I bet you'd get back to your better, more specialized tools.


Hey does that mean it has become a wanted piece out there and that I can ask STOOPID money for it??

Lol, give it a few more years!
Do you have any of the expansion cards loaded in it? If so I might buy it off you!

, if you have an iPad, iM1 and iProphet are well worth checking out for that kind of sound.
I know not Roland, but same vein tho.

Re: 90s Rompler Vsts

Yeah I have "pop" and the "SuperSoundSet" in there.

I might sell it one day... just not now. I gather it is on it's way to gain in value sooo....

And I still might use it now and then.

Re: 90s Rompler Vsts

Ok thx guys! A JV 2080 goes for 250-300€ today, JV 1080 for 150€.
Probaply will gain value.
There are always guys (like me haha), that immediately check for the real thing when there's an article or forum thread about old digital hardware, or when a new software that emulates one of those unit hits the market.
Anyway, you're probaply right thom...

I think I'll forget about 90s Rompler and go for a Technics WSA1 instead^^

Re: 90s Rompler Vsts

I have the 1010, which is the little half rack. The samples are a bit lower quality apparently, and it's not easy to edit like the other 2, but it has all the sounds from both plus all 255 sounds from the session card, and I have the Dance expansion, which gives me about 1,300 altogether. 64 voice polyphonic, 16 part multitimbral, so I can have the RM1x sequencing 16 parts at the same time if I want.

Re: 90s Rompler Vsts

It's a pure nostalgia thing. I find it funny that they expanded the functionalities that much, because what it was originally meant to do can be done much better with any ol' pc and freeware instruments. The people who will buy this will, I bet, mainly look for classic sounds we are all familiar with and heard everywhere. They'll just want to tap into that familiarity, that subtle echo from the past these sounds will have in the listener's ears. They most certainly wont buy this for the 1080's VA capabilities lol. Those filters... as long as you don't crank the resonance, they're sort of ok at best.

The MKS50/Alpha Juno, shit they should do THAT one lol. Great synth with waveforms you never got from any other synth since. It sounds retrofuture electro as FUCK.

Re: 90s Rompler Vsts

I have absolutely no interest in those movie soundscapes and pop presets. If I had one, I would look for otherworldly stuff, abusing the engine to craft my own sounds.
If the results will justify the money and time? Not sure about that...
Possible with Rompler Vsti‘s?

Romplers if you can get em cheap are PERFECT if you want some instant 90s cheese sounds for dance music. Cheaper than software often...

Re: 90s Rompler Vsts

The choir vocals can be pretty cool for layering with a dark pad for a more menacing vibe. Actually it's good for layering behind stuff for some extra width and depth too.

Re: 90s Rompler Vsts

So I'd be better off going the software route? I'll check for 90s Rompler Vsti's later. Maybe I can get some cool results when I sequence it from the Octatrack.

Although the Wavestation uses Vector Synthesis, it could lead to interesting results. I gotta read about the M1, but 25 bucks sounds cool. Thx.
Actually I really wanted to work within the limitations of 90s hardware units in order to craft some interesting sounds...You know, sequencing from the OT with parameter locks, using extreme slow or fast modulation with extreme pitch values, abusing the fx section.
Which brings up the real 90s Rompler's thing again...

Hmm look what I found;

Re: 90s Rompler Vsts

By the sound s of what you're saying, maybe drop the rompler idea and go for something like this.....
This is what is next on my list in the new year. Old hardware samplers have a distinct and unique sound to them. This is what I'm interested in, that dirty sound.

Also, for bonus points, just sample one chord and pitch it up and down in a simple sampler.
