    Is the Roland Sound Canvas any different from normal sound modules or is it just another sound module?

    Just curious because it's been getting a lot of hype around here and I wasn't able to find much info on Roland's website.

    Well the Canvas is a family of sound modules.
    For great info on this line forget about the Roland site or the Edirol site.
    Join SCUG or just visit their homepage.
    What info were you looking for?

    The SOund canvas sounds are good but not great; they're all sampled sounds that are compressed, so if u try EQing some bells sound at 18k, you don't really hear the fine highs.. I've been using sound canvas for almost a decade now, but i still long for a JV module.

    I'd agree. The sounds aren't nearly as "phat" as a host of other choices. But it has a very competent and useful set of samples. And the unit itself produces a very quiet output.
    If you've heard orchestral arrangements done by very talented MIDI arrangers on the Canvas, then you know what I mean.

    Cool

    The sound canvas is probably the best GENRAL MIDI box out there but if you want higher quality I'd go with one of E-Mu's Proteus line sound boxes. You can find one to fit any music style!!
    totally cool!
