Roland SC-88VL199632646542218-bit @ 32 kHzSmaller sized version of SC-88, with a same size and panel layout as the SC-55.[10]
Roland SC-88ST199632646542218-bit @ 32 kHzA black plastic box, with LEDs for MIDI activity. 2 MIDI ins, 1 out. There is one single button on the front panel for switching between SC-55 and SC-88 modes.[2]
Roland SC-88 Pro1996326411174218-bit @ 32 kHzSC-55 and SC-88 map support, introduced Insertion EFX and unofficial XG compatibility.[2][11][12]

Roland ED SC-885019996412816406324-bit @ 32 kHzDesktop module that can connect via USB. Contains a new native map as well as SC-55, SC-88, and SC-88 Pro maps for backwards compatibility. However, compatibility with these units is flawed due to modifications made to the synthesis engine as well as improper mapping of older instruments.[14][15]
Roland ED SC-88201999326416086324-bit @ 32 kHzMobile MIDI device with no LCD display, successor of the SC-88ST Pro. USB-powered, but does not act as a full USB audio device. A software editor such as GS Advanced Editor is required to edit sounds. Despite similarities, patches and effects occasionally play differently from the 8850 - some samples on the 8850 are stereo while the 8820 versions are mono and vice versa.[14]
Roland ED SC-D702001326416086324-bit @ 44.1 kHz or 48 kHzDigital audio-oriented desktop module version of the SC-8820. Contains A/D inputs as well as USB audio functionality when connected to a host system. This is also the only Sound Canvas module to have digital audio ports built in. The output can be selected either 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz.

Roland sold GM/GS products under its Edirol brand. The samples contained in the ROMs of these units do not in all cases mirror the original SC-7 / SC-55 GM/GS samples. GM2 is downward compatible with GM. The SD line was also sold under the 'Roland' brand.


Virtual Sound Canvas[edit]

There is also the VSC, Virtual Sound Canvas, range of PC software which provide GM and GSsynthesis on Windows PCs. Many versions of Cakewalk'sSonar software came bundled with a copy of VSC, though from Sonar 4 onwards they ship with the improved TTS-1 softsynth, which Roland has sold previously through its Edirol subsidiary as the HyperCanvas.[24]
