What is Virtual Sound Canvas and why is it useful for music production?




Virtual Sound Canvas is a software synthesizer that uses a popular GS format sound source to help you create high-quality sounds on your computer. It is based on the Roland Sound Canvas series, which has been the de facto standard in GS sound modules since 1991. GS stands for General Standard or General MIDI System Level 1 Extension, which is a set of specifications that defines how MIDI devices should produce sounds. GS sound modules have over 1,600 high-quality sounds and 63 drum kits that cover nearly every musical genre. They also support GM2 (General MIDI Level 2) and GM (General MIDI) standards. With Virtual Sound Canvas, you can access these classic sounds as a plug-in on your computer without needing any external sound sources.


Virtual Sound Canvas is useful for music production because it allows you to create realistic and expressive sounds for your MIDI files or tracks. You can use it to play back MIDI files created on the SC-88 Pro or other Sound Canvas hardware modules. You can also use it to create your own original sounds using filters, envelopes, and numerous GS sound parameters. You can store sounds in an extensive library and quickly load favorites. You can also add effects like reverb, chorus, delay, and EQ to enhance your sounds. You can open multiple plug-in instances to use different insert effects on different tracks as needed. You can also receive MIDI data from external devices to play sounds with Virtual Sound Canvas. In short, Virtual Sound Canvas gives you a powerful and versatile tool for creating professional-sounding music on your computer.
