SRX-03 Studio SRX
Expansion board

  Here's the third installment in the SRX-series of Roland expansion boards.  "Studio SRX" came out in 2001 and offers a great selection of high-quality, very usable sounds for many different musical genres.

There are many new, great samples of acoustic, percussion, and synthesizer instruments, and they gel with each other very well.

Perfect for the Session musician, or for any musical genre.

The guitars in particular have been notably improved, and so have the brass instruments.

Check out audio demos from this board here below.
