Roland announces GW-8 workstation
|At the 2008 Summer NAMM show and at the London International Music Show (LIMS), Roland Corporation announced its new GW-8 workstation. The GW-8 carves a unique path in the arranger-workstation market with its high quality sound set, clean and easy user interface, and affordable price.|
No extensive knowledge of synthesis or sequencing is required to use this friendly instrument. It’s designed for first-time workstation players who are interested in pop, jazz, and world-music genres, but the GW-8’s sound quality and styles are rich and expressive enough to attract professionals as well.
The GW-8 features a wide variety of pre-programmed styles. In addition to onboard styles, the GW-8 allows for seamless playback of MP3, .WAV, AIFF, or SMF files directly from USB flash memory for accompanying backing tracks. The GW-8 can also be constantly refreshed with new songs and styles via USB flash memory.
The GW-8 offers an infrared D Beam, a pitch-bend/modulation lever, and a pair of control knobs for real-time expression. Performers will appreciate the large backlit LCD, especially on dark stages and in dimly lit studio environments.
