Petition: Roland, please allow the Edirol HQ plugin to become Freeware

Posted: October 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

The Edirol HQ Orchestral plugin, released by Roland in 2001, provides premium acoustic sounds, focusing on Strings, Wood winds, and Brass winds, as well as Percussion and Keyboards. This Virtual Studio Technology Instrument (VSTi) is compatible with many digital audio workstations, such as FL Studio, which continue to be popular among hip hop producers, both novice and experienced.

Technically, the Edirol HQ Orchestral VST plugin is still under copyright by Roland. This is a very useful and versatile plugin for many new producers and relinquishing its copyright will allow thousands of up and coming producers to access, enjoy and share this software LEGALLY.

While Roland offers newer orchestral plug-ins, it is no secret that Edirol HQ is still in use and is still being distributed over the internet. Edirol HQ is easy to use as a VST, and it provides a good stepping-stone for new producers. To our knowledge, Roland has not enforced its copyright on this software since ending its support, therefore this petition is meant to encourage Roland to allow Edirol HQ Orchestral to become “freeware”.
