Harness the vast power of the ZEN-Core Synthesis System and dive deep into the world of custom sound design with ZENOLOGY Pro. You get the amazing sound quality and efficiency of ZENOLOGY, plus an expansive interface to craft all-new sounds that inspire your music.
ZEN-Core is ultra-flexible and based on discrete synth voices called partials—each containing an oscillator, filter, amplifier, and dual Step LFOs. You can use up to four partials simultaneously, choosing from thousands of waveforms, 10 modeled filter types, and 11 LFO shapes. Combining multiple synthesis types, lush effects, and deep modulation capabilities, you’re able to build stunning sounds that spark new ideas.
The ZEN-Core Synthesis System features an array of detailed parameters to develop big, complex sounds with animated movement. With its clear, resizable interface and multiple edit views, ZENOLOGY Pro provides full access to every aspect of ZEN-Core, letting you create sounds you’ve only imagined.
Low-frequency oscillators add movement to static sounds—and more LFOs mean more modulation possibilities. ZENOLOGY Pro has two LFOs per partial with 11 different LFO shapes. With four partials per tone, that’s eight simultaneous LFOs in a patch! And the Step LFOs have 16 steps of beat-synced automation with 37 curve choices per step, perfect for creating long, evolving passages, modular-style animated textures, and sounds with deeply intricate motion.
ZENOLOGY Pro has a huge selection of ready-to-go drum sounds, including famous Roland rhythm machines, natural acoustic kits, authentic electronic sounds, and exotic hybrid kits that use layers and combinations. Use them in your tracks as is, or mix and match them to build dreamy custom kits. You get multiple edit views for precise control over each kit piece, plus six dedicated drum compressors for maximum punch and impact.
Roland effects processors are as revered as their legendary instrument counterparts. Sweeping JUNO-106 and CE-1 choruses, spacious delays, and unique effects like the SDD-320 Dimension D are just some of ZENOLOGY Pro’s 90 effects that can shape and color your sound.
With support for our growing collection of Model Expansions, you can instantly transform ZENOLOGY Pro into an entirely different instrument with its own sonic personality, features, and preset tones. From rare and sought-after classics to the designs of tomorrow, Model Expansions give you unprecedented access to the historic and ever-evolving world of Roland synthesizers.
