Roland XV-5080 Software Synthesizer Plugin VST 2022
Roland XV-5080 Software Synthesizer 2022
A UNIVERSE OF SOUND
The patriarch of PCM synths, the XV-5080 is brimming with just about every instrument sound imaginable. With a huge selection of onboard effects and over 900 carefully crafted presets, producing with the XV-5080 plug-in is even more fast and fluid than the original hardware version, no matter the genre or style.

912 Carefully Crafted Instruments in One Incredible Synth
The Ultimate Roland Sound Module
The Roland XV-5080 stepped onto the scene in 2000, leaving a mighty footprint. Described for years as “Roland's ultimate sound module,” the XV-5080 boasted immense PCM-based multitimbral synthesis power, sophisticated modulation, an array of pro-quality DSP effects, and compatibility with the popular SRX Expansion Board series.
One PCM Synth to Rule Them All
Building on the successes of the JV-1080 and JV-2080, the XV-5080’s fidelity and technological adaptability were unmatched at the time. Musicians and producers increasingly turned to the XV-5080 in place of slower and less convenient samplers. It was embraced heavily by composers and producers spanning a wide range of genres, making the rackmount XV-5080 an undisputed hit.
Plug In Your Own XV-5080
With over 900 presets in its library, the XV-5080 Software Synthesizer facilitates quick composition and fluid genre-hopping. From low-end theory to retro game sounds to symphonic masterpieces, this instrument is limited only by your imagination. And there are also some great modern touches that enhance the original:
- Edit window with separate views for Structure, TVF, TVA, LFO, and other parameters
- Hardware synthesizers like the Roland SYSTEM-8 can map to the XV-5080’s controls for an easy, tactile workflow
- Analog Circuit Behavior technology captures every detail of the original hardware
- Uses the original TR-707 sample ROM
- Includes all 15 original sounds and 64 original patterns
- 43 new patterns and kits for modern styles
- Get modern sounds with tuning, decay, attack, snappy, gain, sample rate adjustment, and more
- Powerful sequencer with flams, sub-steps, last step, and per-instrument shuffle
- Drag and drop audio or MIDI patterns directly to DAW tracks or cells
- Original and aged skins along with LCD-style sequencer windows
- Multiple outputs for flexible effects processing with plugins like ZENOLOGY FX
- VST3, AU, and AAX support for popular DAWs
- Native support for Apple silicon
Before the TR-707, Roland released the now-legendary TR-909, which was developed as an analog-digital hybrid rather than a fully digital device. Memory chips and digital-to-analog converters were costly at the time, so there was concern that an all-digital design would make the product unaffordable for many musicians and would have limited sound shaping options. However, after the TR-909’s release, Roland embraced the trend towards digital technology with a drum machine that combined crisp and punchy sampled sounds with the user-friendly TR interface—newly enhanced with the hands-on immediacy of individual faders.
The sound of vintage digital.
Developed in the mid-1980s, the TR-707 had a 25 kHz, 8-bit (or 6-bit for some tones) sample playback engine that was primitive by today’s standards. These low bit rates caused quantization noise during the sound’s decay, so non-decaying PCM waveforms were used, with decay introduced later in the analog circuitry. Furthermore, deviations in the clock and the analog circuitry downstream of the D/A converter caused variances in the pitch and decay characteristics. And though the TR-707 lacked the ability to edit sounds, the combination of these factors ultimately led to it being highly sought after for its unique lo-fi punch.
100% authenticity and realism.
Even though the TR-707 was primarily a digital device, it’s impossible to perfectly capture its unique sound using samples. To replicate its sound in software, we started with the original PCM wave data found on the classic machine, then used our advanced circuit modeling to completely recreate the PCM output stage, carefully including all of its quirks and instabilities. Modeling the analog envelope and amplifier stages that came after the D/A converter allowed us to implement tuning, decay, attack, snappy, PCM clock adjustment, and other parameters available in the plugin but not present on the original unit.
The full experience. And more.
Great care has gone into making the TR-707 feel special to use, just like the original hardware. Realistic new and aged skins match your vibe, and all 15 original sounds and 64 patterns are included. But these recreations go way beyond vintage with 43 kits and patterns for modern genres, wicked sound-shaping options, powerful sequencing, drag and drop audio/MIDI to your DAW, multi-out, and more. The TR-707 even works together with the available TR-727, with matching kits and patterns that complement each other perfectly. Load a kit, load a pattern, and let the magic happen.
Sound that goes from vintage to radical.
Taking inspiration from aftermarket modifications, our advanced circuit modeling offers parameters that let you dig under the hood and modify the sound in all manner of ways. You can adjust the Attack of the Bass Drum and the Snappy of the Snare, and every sound has ultra-smooth tuning and decay. You can even overdrive the internal circuitry, tweak how each PCM waveform behaves, and adjust the PCM clock from 6.25 kHz to 100 kHz for some serious sonic mischief.
While the sequencer on the original TR-707 was the most advanced we’d ever made, the updated sequencer here goes much further, incorporating features that let you add detail and nuance to your grooves. Opening the sequencer’s expanded edit panel reveals individual sequencer lanes with mute, solo, and adjustable shuffle for each instrument. Per-step accent is included, and each step can trigger hard or weak hits, alternate sounds, three types of sub-steps, and nine types of flams.
From 1985 straight to your DAW.
The TR-707 Software Rhythm Composer brings the totally authentic experience of using this classic machine direct to your studio. And while it captures the vintage vibe of the original, it’s thoroughly modern in its support for today’s workflow. The detailed user interface is fully resizable for any display setup, and you can drag and drop MIDI and audio patterns directly to tracks or cells. In addition, the TR-707 plugin is VST3, AAX, and AU compatible and has native support for Apple silicon.
