Bringing over 5000 sounds via the latest SuperNATURAL technology, the Roland Integra-7 is a rack mounted synth unit with some amazing capabilities. It's the perfect tool for studio users to get practically any sound you can think of easily thanks to the selection of sounds that encompasses the most popular sounds from Roland keyboards and V-Drum ranges.
SuperNATURAL synth and drum engines
Everything from retro analogue style synth sounds to realistic drum sampes are available on the Roland Integra-7 synthesiser. The improved Behaviour Modelling technology helps to simulate the sound of actual acoustic instruments with extensive dynamic and expressive range. This means you have a huge range of both electronic and acoustic tones to choose from and use how you see fit. Some of the sounds available include a grand piano, with no "looping" in the samples to provide natural decay; a range of electric pianos for era-correct tonality; electric and acoustic guitars from many different styles with included amp modelling; orchestral sounds like strings and brass alongside a wide range of ethnic instruments from all over the world. The SuperNATURAL drum engine has many responsive sounds inside, designed so they sound just like a real acoustic kit and giving you the ability to create fluid patterns and fills easily with a professional touch. Many sounds seen on previous Roland synths are on-board too, with a selection that includes all of the sounds heard on the XV-5080 and every SRX Expansion library. This gives you a full orchestral pack, vintage TR-808 and 909 drum machines and much more. You're sure to always find the right sound for your compositions and recordings with the Roland Integra-7 at your fingertips.
New Motional Surround ambience engine
Born out of the Roland Sound Space technology, the new Motional Surround feature gives you a massive amount of control over sonic placement of sounds. Forget just having control of pan between left and right, the Integra 7 lets you control depth and placement of sounds to create a natural and impressive sound space. Roland say this is especially effective when used with orchestral sounds, as you can create an immersive sound scape with exceptional depth and feel. External sounds can easily be given the Motional Surround treatment, which works on standard two-channel equipment (i.e. headphones or two speakers) but can be used with a full 5.1 rig.
Built-in effects, EQ and much more
An extensive effects section comes pre-installed on the Roland Integra-7 so you can vary your sounds even more and make them fit perfectly in your mix. Add to this some high quality EQ and dedicated compression and you have one of the most powerful synthesiser units we have ever seen.
The Roland Integra-7 is capable of so much, it's hard to encapsulate it in a mere description. The sheer range of sounds and capability of the rack mounted unit is nothing short of amazing and it's sure to be present soon in many top studios for many applications.

- Out of this world
- Excellent synth
- This is the one.
- Great rack mounted synth, does take getting used to though
- Great bit of kit!
The inclusion of all the add-on board (within the unit in software) expands the sound library to around 9000 tones. If that's not enough for you, the Motional Surround engine for 3D panning and placement of tracks will take your breath away. I'd love to say more, but I really need to get back to playing with this module.
