L-CDX-02 Keyboard Instruments
Sample CD-ROM library

The L-CDX-02 library combines the "Keyboards of the '60s & '70s Vol1" and "Keyboards of the '60s & '70s Vol.2" Roland CD-ROMs for their S-series samplers.  Here's what a note in the CD says:  "The tones on this CD-ROM have been selected from Roland's Project Series L-CDP-09 "Keyboards of the '60s & '70s Vol1" and L-CDP-10 "Keyboards of the '60s & '70s Vol.2"."

This is a terrific selection of all the classic sounds of the '60s and '70s, the "staples" heard in innumerable hits.  From the Mellotron to the Rhodes, to the Clavinet, Solina, Hammond B-3, Wurlitzer, these are all the sounds you need if you are into classic rock and pop.


If you carefully mix these with standard drum, bass and guitar sounds, you can probably make many people think they are hearing the "real" Mellotron, the real Hammond, and so on.

In order to use these CD-ROMs you will need a SCSI CD-ROM drive connected to your S-series sampler or XV-5080.  Keep in mind that certain sound data will need 32MB of memory, supported only by the S-760.  The S-770 and 750 have less.
