Roland presented Integra-7 sound module, 16 parts multitimbral (128 voices of polyphony), that features 6000 sounds :
– acoustic Supernatural sounds : piano, electric piano, acoustic and electric guitars (with automatic chord fingering and strumming, and amp simulator), strings (with automatic legato, portamento, pizzicato, staccato, et tremolo), brass (with over-blowing, staccato, fall, grow), and ethnic instruments (Shakuhachi, Erhu, Sitar, Kalimba).
– analog type synth sounds : filters and envelopes, PCM besides oscillators.
– drum sounds derived from V-Drum.
– a new surround effects module (also manages audio input) and SFX sounds (with realtime control).
– all sounds from XV5080 (however does not manage import).
– whole sounds from the 12 SRX expansion cards. However only 4 cards can be selected simultaneously.
– an improved GM2 module.

An iPad application is provided.
The strumming effect for guitars and effects on brass are interesting, however strings seem using the same samples as found on previous SRX 04 / Fantom X (these are great however not as realistic as those from recent samples libraries).
The price isn’t annouced yet (listed 1511 euros at DV247).
