Introduction

    If you appreciate anything you have found in my web page and would like to donate to help me have more time to write articles (trading services for time to write), please consider donating to help me.  See the terms and conditions at the bottom of the page. I wrote this page to share patches I've worked with, not to make myself any money.  The patches are below.

The Downloads

    Here are the downloads.  The factory patches are two pages down.  I also have combination files below this.

System-1 Church Set

    Here are patch sets I use in church.  To be able to use them, you must be subscribed to Roland Cloud and have access to the various Plug-Out VSTs.

System-8 Church Set

    Here are my patch sets for church.  The System-8 set is composed only of patches Roland has made available to the public without a Roland Cloud subscription.  As of Monday, July 27, 2020, I have requested that Roland allow me to put a few of the patches from the Roland Cloud Frontiers and Synthwave collections in this church set.  For now, I do not include these because I do not have permission.  Also, for now, I do not include anything for the Jupiter-8, Juno-106, or JX-3P because only their factory patches are available publicly.

System-8 Patches

    Here, I offer publicly available patches for the System-8 and its various Plug-Outs (Juno-106, Jupiter-8, JX-3P, Juno-60).  All of these are either factory or from the Aira website, so they are already available to those who own these synthesizers and/or Plug-Outs.

    My Church set only includes those patches Roland has made public via their initial inclusion on the System-8 or subsequent firmware upgrades (like V 1.2 for example) or from the Roland Aira website.  On July 27, 2020, I requested permission from Roland to include some of my church modifications to their Roland Cloud patches.  They have refused because it would harm them as a company.  I urge those reading this to support Roland by subscribing to Roland Cloud.  Per Romans 13, I will honor Roland's request.

    As for the other patches, I created the "MOD" files here for church musicians.  See the bottom of the page for a description.

    Factory and Roland Cloud patches come in .BIN files.  The VST .BIN files are not the same as the System-8 backup .BIN files.

    Aira website patches come in System-8 Export .S8P file format.  You must download the .S8P and .TXT files together for them to work on the SD card (EXPORT folder).  The System-8 VST Librarian can load .S8P files and create VST .BIN files but not create Backup BIN files or S8P export files.

    Note that the 2 Synthwave patch sets from the Aira website (vol. 1 & 2) are not the same patches as the Synthwave sets on the Cloud (a completely different set of 64).

    Again, because I do not have permission for Roland Cloud patches, these are not included in any of my files.  I strongly recommend that people subscribe to Roland Cloud, especially for the excellent Jupiter-8, Juno-106, and JX-3P patch sets.  They're worth it.

Combo Files

    These patches are combinations of Aira sets into one file.  Roland has distributed a lot of great patches for their System-8 from the Aira website.  I'm very happy with Roland: they put out lots of great patches that are very useful.  The only minor problem I have encountered is that some of these won't really "fit" onto your screen if you are using the VST and you click in the patch area.  So in an effort to "condense" or "clean up" the appearance of the System-8 VST by combining files, I give you the following "combo" files.  "Original" in this table means unmodified, as these sets didn't "originally" come in one file.

"MOD" File Changes Made for Church

    Update: these are still available but I have changed my patch philosophy.  So these will not be updated until I release a more comprehensive change log.

    In my "mod" files above, I essentially perform the "first edit" towards being a patch for church:

  • I set the filter and amp velocity sensitivity to at least 64 (except on filter-resonant patches).
  • I set mod lever bend to filter sweep and mod lever mod to vibrato (except on lead patches).
  • Only on a very few patches did I do anything more.  Usually this involved reducing features that would not work very well in church, such as detunes.  I only changed any offending value to half its original value.  For example, if OSC2 is detuned, I reduced OSC2 mix volume by half.  If there was way too much phaser, I reduced the phaser depth to half its original value.  I only did this when a patch would be useless in church if I didn't modify it.  And I did this very sparingly: maybe only 10 out of the almost 1,000 patches for the System-8 or its Plug-Outs were changed.

Terms & Conditions, & Legal Disclaimer

    Only because of the social and legal environment we live in, I feel that I am obligated to offer these terms and conditions, and disclaimers.

  1. Thank you for your donations.
  2. All donations are non-refundable.
  3. All donations go towards helping me write more articles, and defraying the cost of my labor.  None of your donations are a form of profit or income.
  4. Your donations do not incur any obligation to me.
  5. Your donations do not give you the ability to determine or decide what my future articles might be, though I will take your suggestions into account.
  6. I am not tax-exempt or a non-profit organization, at least legally.  However, any donation is not a profit.
  7. My mission is to provide useful content for individuals and churches.
  8. Your donations do not purchase anything, whether physical, social, or creatively.
  9. You offer this donation freely, in gratitude for content that you may have found helpful.
  10. All donations are "no strings attached."

    Also, understand that my services are NOT a replacement for Roland Cloud: I do not offer anything the Roland Cloud offers.  If you want access to the VST/Librarians, you must get Roland Cloud.  The .BIN files above will not work without the Roland Cloud VSTs.  I am encouraging you to sign up for the Roland Cloud because the VST/Librarians save you a lot of time.

    For the System-8, per the Roland EULA, you must perform a factory reset on your Roland System-8 before selling it.  This means lifetime use of the Juno-106, Jupiter-8, and JX-3P stock Plug-Outs is guaranteed so long as your System-8 is working.  But the VSTs are not free.  Also, when Roland rolled out the Juno-60 Plug-Out, that means you have even more to gain from being on Roland Cloud.  Seriously, the amount of patches available for the System-8 and its Plug-Outs on Roland Cloud is dizzying.  If you can't find a patch on Roland Cloud that works for something you need to do, you have found a needle in a hay stack!

    Please support Roland Cloud.  My goal in this web page is to encourage more people to buy a System-1 and/or System-8, and for more people to subscribe to Roland Cloud.

    Contact me if you have any questions.
