The Roland Story
"Roland" was a medieval European hero, best known for defending the frontier of Francia against the Bretons...Roland (the company) wanted to align themselves with this same heroic legacy and so named themselves after the legend. Or, if you ask them, "the two syllables are pleasant to the ear and could be pronounced in the same way in any language in the world." Either way, Roland has been an unstoppable force since 1972, when they first committed to "experimentation for creating stimulative sounds." Since then, they have continued to be driven by their pursuit of "sounds that are comfortable to the human ear." They have eventually found the material for creating "good and expressive sounds" in the form of silicon chips. By leveraging this state-of-the-art technology that has been enabled through modern science, Roland has been able to establish a unique position in the world of electronic musical instruments. Roland has introduced a broad range of technological innovations in the area of computers and semiconductors, and have delivered many revolutionary produces ahead of the rest of the world. And, by doing so, has contributed to creating an environment where everyone is able to casually enjoy music.
Roland celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2002, and has remained true to its commitment to constantly "create sounds that move" as a dedicated manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, which are now beginning to expand into the huge multimedia market. Moving forward, they will continue to actively engage in technological development as part of its efforts to expand possibilities for electronic musical instruments. By creating the best instruments available, They intend to expand the joy of creating around the world, and become a company with which people can feel affinity.
