Roland JD-990 “Vintage Soul” 64 Presets

Categories: , Tags: ,


The legendary Roland JD-990 synthesizer is back with its 27th birthday!

Back to 1993 JD was one of the most powerful digital modules with its flexible engine & beautiful sound combined with great set of effects & drums.

Why it’s so cool?

Cause besides pianos, bells, cowbells & cheesy accordions presets – it’s capable to create great analog sounds, the deepest ambient textures, great moving sequences.

It’s like a hardware “Omnisphere” synth with huge effort.

So – what was our first desire when we get our black box? To create our own sound set for the legend with modern approach of course!

By Nick Klimenko aka Chronos, a creator of “Organica” for Waldorf Blofeld & “WS Universe” for Korg Wavestation.

“Vintage Soul Soundset” contains 64 modern & classic patches:

  • The Deepest ambient pads, space drones & tonal soundscapes
  • Vintage analog-like basses & leads & strings
  • Beautiful bells, plucks & rhythmic structures
  • Classic re-creations: CS-80, Jupiter, Juno, Jx series.

Reviews from YouTube

I have 3 of these with the vintage expansion board in each, but you are right, fantastic sounds can be had from the 990 without any expansion boards.

Very nice sounds!
Peter Moberg

These are great! Classic Roland sound. I will never sell my 990 or my 1080. I may just have to pick these up. By the way, do you have presets for the Morpheus?
Aristotle Kumpis

Maravilhoso esses timbres, tenho duas unidades de rack do jd990 aqui no Brasil.

looking to buy a 990 how do you load these sound sets

My #1 advantage of 990 is that you able to save its own parametric eq for every editable (user or card) patch.

Great sounds, going to purchase – thank you!

It must be said. I own 3 JD990’s since 1993, and I’ve recently bought this Vintage Soul Presets. After installing, I got that feeling again: The JD990 simply sounds superior over many other synths, either analog, digital or VST ! THX mr. Klimenko 4 those wonderful sounds.
