Laurent0375's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland P-330
Patches: 64 (rpart as eight banks of eight patches)
* 3 Pianos (21 patches 48)
* A harpsichord (patches 51 58)
* A clavichord (patches 51 58)
* 1 vibraphone (patches 61 68
* 2 Electric Pianos (71 patches 88)
The Patch 11 18 are the basic sounds (tones) of DIFFERENT pianos in ROM. 21 88 The sounds are highly modified and in patches souvegards user from basic sounds

Effects: chorus (TRI SIN), tremolo height of the hammer attack, rate of relaxation, two bands equalizer

* 16 votes for piano, vibraphone and electric piano 1
* 10 votes for keyboards (harpsichord and clavi) and the electric piano 2

Parties: 1 (monotimbrale) - possibility to connect up to eight P-330 SERIES (stack)
Assignable controllers (volume, expression, pan, chorus, pitch, tremolo ...)

* Analog output jack (6.35) OUT L / R (MONO) - rgler button to exit depending on the destination (receiver, mixer etc.).

Format: 1U Rack

Release year: 1988


The edition is relatively simple because there are few changes paramtrs (compatible with Sound Driver)
2-line LCD
The manual is the essential, it does not dwell on custom settings or edition sounds.


For the era, the piano sounds are excellent! Electric pianos are unbeatable (even the XV have no electric pianos of this quality!)

Mthode of synthse Roland SA / S found in all the pianos of the era scne Roland (R & D SERIES MKS-20)


The most
* The electric piano sounds trs CHARACTERISTICS
* The Piano 3 is "signquot, Roland, a good sound for the trs scne ...

This module is for particulirement ddi scne
Complment good for the home studio. The sounds will be even richer with processors ffects, noted a rverbe.

The least
* No rverbe intgrbr /> * No "factory reset"
* Problem at the MIDI OUT that returns give reus MIDI IN (the P300 with a MIDI THROUGH, this is weird ...)

Stoparach's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland P-330
a 19-inch rack unit.
2 output jack symmetrical with 6.35 3-level attenuator
Multi-effects (tremolo, vibrato, chorus)
10 to 16 voice polyphony by the sounds
3 pianos, 2 electric piano, clavinet 1, 1 harpsichord, vibraphone 1


Hypersimple configuration is lighter and it plays right away
Patch assignales obviously ... I think this is one of the simplest racks.
The manual is very clear and editing sounds really simple, because in fact rather complex and different possibilities that could entrvoir are largely met by the presets.


The sound ... impresive. I was not expecting this quality with an old roland rack. A dynamic and expressive impressive. Of course realism level is doing much better today but this rack has an undeniable personality.
This is not a synthesizer and a floppy drive. Here, no threshold effect ... ROM to a floppy it is actually waveform read by the machine and adjusted according to the velocity spread seen in layers according to the velocity. The problem often encountered is when a threshold effect when changing diapers. P-330 with a continuous variation! it's like if you had 127 layers of samples ... hence the expression we really seem to have an instrument and not a sample player.
I was worried initially about the polyphony but actually it is more than enough (if you love music we can connect Multiple items in series to increase polyphony.)
Pianos: what are the sounds I like least ultimately, in reality it is much better (even my proteus sound has sounds that are closer to a real piano). Sustain a particular grain can not please everyone ... a piano is the most realistic
The electric pianos: The EP1 woaw excellent sound with a good heat in the low clarity in the treble, very very good. Ep2 The more I like least typed roland synthesizer still with an amp simulator can draw stuff.
Vibraphone: my second favorite, hard to find a good sound vibes at low prices, down there he does his job.
The harpsichord is not I, I can not really judge ...
The clavinet: excellent even though we are far from a D6 he does his job and stevie do not you will throw stones when you will enter into superstition ... deep bass, precise and sharp attacks, good what ...

Also funny sound of space when switched off the rack ...


I use it for 6 months. I else racks and samplers and software synthesizers. Bah these sounds we do not find elsewhere ... we can do without for sure but I love it.
Pros: price, overall quality, expressiveness
Cons: Multi effect amber, old realism.

For now I do not intend to part with it or leave it in the closet ... it's part of my sound.
