What is Roland GS sound quality? Roland GS sound quality is a Roland extension of the industrys General MIDI standard. This standard is a good start, but Roland felt that it had its limitations, like offering only 128 sounds. This is why Roland created a higher standard for their synthesisers that are fully GM compatible. The Roland GS sound quality allows for more sounds, effects processing, and other synthesiser controls necessary to create high quality music with electronic instruments. MicroSoftTM, Apple ComputerTM, as well as other synthesiser manufacturers have adopted Rolonds GS standard. Numerous music software applications provide GS specific controls.
What does MIDI stand for and what is it? MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. This is the language used by electronic musical instruments to communicate with one another as well as peripheral devices. MIDI can be used for a wide range of musical applications, such as creating \"virtual orchestrations,\" automatic vocal harmonies or to print music in any key on your computer. You can compose music with a sequencer; back up or restore sounds in a synthesiser or even control sound and lighting consoles. MIDI data is not a sound, but rather digital information that can control, modify and trigger sounds in a synthesiser or other MIDI compatible device.
Like the EM-15, the EM-25 is a perfect place to start a voyage into the world of music. whether youre just getting started, working on your own arrangements, or getting a bond together, the EM-25 Creative Keyboard doesnt skimp on the professional features.
