Session work doesn’t get any bigger than this.

Roland partners with top producers at Santorini songwriting camp.

http://www.roland.co.uk/blog/roland-partners-with-top-producers-at-santorini-songwriting-camp/
‪#‎Songwriting‬ ‪#‎BlackRockStudio‬ ‪#‎Roland‬
Santorini is an unlikely rock ‘n’ roll epicentre. Rugged and remote, the island sits some 200km off the Greek mainland, its economy based on agriculture and tourism.

If you're planning on going #busking this summer, make sure you check out these tips!
http://www.roland.co.uk/blog/12-golden-rules-busking/
Busking. When it goes well, there aren’t many better ways to spend a Saturday afternoon. Glorious sunshine, coins raining down, punters singing along, eccentric millionaires scattering tenners, maybe even an A&R man waiting to sign you up when you finish your acoustic reworking of Happy.

What’s the truth about this rising form of ‪#‎music‬ consumption and can it actually make your band any money?
http://www.roland.co.uk/blog/what-do-i-need-to-know-about-streaming/
Streaming. It’s the most divisive concept in the modern music industry. In one corner, you have the haters, like Metallica manager Peter Mensch (who declared YouTube “the Devil”), Taylor Swift (who attacked Apple Music for expecting musicians to finance its three-month trial) and Thom Yorke (who dismissed Spotify as “the last desperate fart of a...

JD-XA Analog/Digital Crossover Synthesizer
Smooth, Warm Analog Filters
The filters in the JD-XA's analog section are 100 percent analog, providing a warm, organic sound with super-smooth response. There's the classic 4-pole filter, a transistor ladder with stronger characteristics, and a multi-mode filter option for the essential LPF, HPF, and BPF duties. Special mention goes to the resonance of the multi-mode filter, with its uniquely aggressive sound character.

#Drums #ElectronicKit #HybridDrums
http://bit.ly/1SADWdq
There’s more to the Roland MH-2 PowerPly mesh heads than meets the eye. Plenty of V-Drums players will welcome these Remo-produced two-ply heads as the perfect replacements for their worn-out heads.
