ROLI Studio Player Beta brings together the previous Equator, Strobe2 and Cypher2 Player engines into one neat package. As well as a new GUI and preset browser, ROLI Studio Player Beta includes new modulation possibilities with the Smart Chords, Arpeggiator and Audio Effects modules, which can be applied to any sound in ROLI Studio Player Beta.


The Smart Chords module not only plays a specific chord shape for each note in the chosen scale, but each chord is also modulated to stay within the specified key, making for quick, fun and in-tune chord progressions. An additional bass note and more natural chord voicing can also be achieved.


The Multi-layered Arpeggiator features three independent, fully-controllable arpeggiator layers for achieving complex polyrhythms and patterns, and includes a selection of presets.


The Fused Effects module features four effects slots that host a variety of effects types, including delay, distortion and reverb. The Audio Effects can be applied to any engine preset in ROLI Studio Player
