With the latest version of ROLI Connect, v1.0.11, and the latest ROLI Studio update, v1.2.1, we've introduced soundpack support for existing Equator NOISE presets, as well as for Strobe2 and Cypher2 soundpacks. Please read the following information below carefully to ensure you're able to update successfully.
Please ensure you're running v1.0.11 of ROLI Connect before attempting to update to v1.2.1 of ROLI Studio. Should you encounter any issues, please speak to our support team.

ROLI Studio Player v1.2.1 update
As mentioned above, please ensure you only update to v1.2.1 of ROLI Studio once you are running v1.0.11 of ROLI Connect.
Upon updating to v1.2.1 of ROLI Studio Player, existing soundpacks will be overwritten with updated versions. Any additional soundpacks in your ROLI account that you previously purchased in NOISE will also begin to download. As such, we recommend ensuring you have at least 3GB of free space on your hard drive before updating to v1.2.1, to account for any additional soundpacks that may be installed.
We recommend waiting until all soundpack installations have finished before launching v1.2.1 of ROLI Studio Player for the first time, to ensure all of your sounds are in place. If you happen to launch ROLI Studio Player before all of the soundpacks have finished downloading and notice that some are missing, don’t worry - simply quit ROLI Studio Player, wait for ROLI Connect to display that all soundpacks have installed successfully, then launch ROLI Studio Player again.
Please note - these soundpack updates should not affect any of your existing ROLI Studio Player projects, and they should recall as expected the next time you launch ROLI Studio Player after the update. If this is not the case, please get in touch with our support team.
Installing new soundpacks
You can now install your soundpacks directly from ROLI Connect to use in ROLI Studio Player, and browse and obtain new sounds from our new Sound Store.
Once you have purchased your soundpack(s), open ROLI Connect and log in with your ROLI account details (if you haven’t done so already.
Click the Sounds tab, which will reveal your purchased soundpacks. Please note that each individual soundpack in a collection is displayed here, as opposed to the entire collection. If you already own soundpacks that you previously purchased with the NOISE app, the vast majority of these soundpacks will also now be available to install, containing all Equator presets from these soundpacks.
Click the “Install” button on the right of each soundpack name to begin downloading and installing the soundpack. Alternatively, if you have multiple soundpacks that you wish to install at once, you can use the “Install All” button at the bottom of the ROLI Connect window. Please note that if you own many soundpacks, this can be an intensive process and as such requires a stable and fast internet connection - we recommend downloading each pack individually if you’re on a slower connection.
In the event that a soundpack does not appear in ROLI Studio Player as you would expect, you can re-install the soundpack by heading to the Sounds tab in ROLI Connect, clicking the "Uninstall" button next to the soundpack, and then clicking the green "Install" button when it appears.
I’ve bought a Soundpack in NOISE, can I access it in ROLI Studio?
Yes - if you log into ROLI Connect with the same account you originally purchased the NOISE soundpack with, you will be able to install the ROLI Studio Player version of the pack which will grant you access to all Equator presets from that pack in ROLI Studio Player.
Where are my Drums sounds from my NOISE soundpacks?
Only Equator presets from NOISE soundpacks are supported in ROLI Studio. However, ROLI Studio Drums features 16 exclusive drum kits that were not previously available in NOISE, that take advantage of an updated drum engine.
I've bought a Soundpack in NOISE that is in one of the Collections, do I have to buy the whole Collection to access the Soundpack in ROLI Studio Player?
No - you’ll still have access to each soundpack you purchased in NOISE, regardless of whether they’re in a Collection or not. If you wish to obtain the rest of the soundpacks within a specific Collection, you can choose to either purchase the remaining soundpacks in NOISE or purchase the Collection in the Sound Store.
Some of my soundpacks aren't appearing in ROLI Studio Player
In the event that any presets or soundpacks should go missing from ROLI Studio Player, please do the following:
- Check that ROLI Connect has updated to v1.0.11. If it hasn't, quit ROLI Connect and re-launch it, and the update should happen automatically within 5 minutes.
- Once you can see the "Sounds" tab in ROLI Connect, click it to reveal your list of soundpacks.
- For any packs that don't appear in ROLI Studio Player, do either of the following:
- If the soundpack says "Install", click this button to install the soundpack successful.
- If the soundpack says "Uninstall", click this button until the green "Install" button appears, then click this to install the soundpack successfully.
I already own a Strobe2/Cypher2 Expander from FXpansion but can't see it in ROLI Studio Player
If you already own a Strobe2 or Cypher2 Expander, you'll need to request an equivalent ROLI licence for these to be displayed in ROLI Studio Player. Please speak to our support team, letting them know your FXpansion and My ROLI account details, and they'll be able to add a licence accordingly.
Can I use these sounds in the full version of Equator?
All soundpacks are now supported in the most recent Equator update, v1.13.0. Find out more about this update here: Equator v1.13.0.
Can I use these sounds in the full version of Strobe2 or Cypher2?
Strobe2 and Cypher2 require a separate software update to introduce compatibility with the Sound Store versions of these soundpacks, which we'll be releasing soon. Until these software updates are available, if you own a full licence for either Strobe2 or Cypher2 and have purchased a Strobe2 or Cypher2 soundpack from the Sound Store, please follow the steps below for a solution until the new software updates are available (replacing “Strobe2” with “Cypher2” where appropriate):
Once the soundpack has been installed, e.g. “All About That Bass”, head to the following location to locate the soundpack:
- Mac - Users/Shared/ROLI/Soundpacks/All About That Bass
- Win - Users/Public/Public Documents/ROLI/Soundpacks/All About That Bass
- Then, enter the All About That Bass folder, then enter the Strobe2/Presets folder and copy all files in this folder to your clipboard.
- Head to Documents/FXpansion/Strobe2 and create a new folder named “Collections”
- In this Collections folder, create a new folder named “All About That Bass” and paste the files inside
- Launch the full version of Strobe2, and the soundpack can be accessed from the Library tab
Can I use these sounds in the player version of Equator, Strobe2 & Cypher2?
These soundpacks are only available in ROLI Studio Player and the full versions of Equator, Strobe2 & Cypher2.
