Seeing lots of ads on my facebook feed for Roland's new cloud based service. Lots of synths and virtual instruments (including a piano called Terra Piano or some such thing) you can download into your DAW. It's a subscription based service for $20USD/month. Doesn't require a continuous internet connection, the instruments can be used offline. Anyone tried it? is it worth giving a go? Oddly it doesn't seem that roland has put any sound files on their site for it (which strikes me as very very odd). As far as I can tell it doesn't require an iLok or anything like that to work, but you do have to log in once per week to verify that your subscription is active in order to keep the instruments from expiring.

Before I blow $20 to play with it, I was just wondering if anyone had tried it first?

There seems to be a free month trial, "New Roland Cloud members are eligible for a free 30 day early access beta subscription".

There are quite a few people on youtube doing demos and it seems to be worth the free trial. . .

Give the free trial a go.

$20 a month for hobby is hot for the collection, IMHO. If you're earning from it and using the software often, that's another story. But that's for one to decide for oneself. There are so many software pianos out there to try and pick one or two you are happy with for one time fee of $199 or less. Also, I am told by colleagues of mine that did give the Roland cloud a go, that the software was very resource hungry - ran poorly on a fairly recent MS Surface, he canceled subscription right away. I don't want to spread rumors, but that's what I've heard from a reliable pear. We've heard similar about Spectrasonics Omnisphere and Keyscape. You need a very spec'd up machine to use to the fullest.
