Description

SYSTEM-1 PLUG-OUT Synthesizer SOUNDS WITH CHARACTER AND LOADS OF CONTROLS IN A PLUG-OUT CAPABLE SYNTHESIZER Back in the 1970s, Roland launched the SYSTEM 100, SYSTEM 100M, and the now almost mythical SYSTEM 700. These modular and semi-modular synthesizers are heralded to this day for their flexibility and character of sound. In the spirit of its predecessors, the SYSTEM-1 breaks new ground with remarkable flexibility and access to a vast palette of tones with the bold, unmistakable character associated with Roland synthesizers for nearly four decades. Four oscillators for buckets of fat synth tones Oscillator colors create continuous waveform changes from simple to complex All parameters can be controlled with physical knobs and sliders with LED indicators Advanced arpeggiator with Scatter function Scatter jog dial offers 10 different phrase variations with dynamic, real-time control over 10 stages of depth -12 dB and -24 dB filter types with independent high-pass filters Tone knob for easy tonal balancing Crusher knob for modern edge Integrated delay and reverb effects Tempo syncing for LFO and delay Innovative thin keyboard with 25 normal-sized keys Comfortable to play, yet the most compact Roland synth ever

Roland System 8

This is my biggest gripe on the System-1. When you switch it on it always starts on the S1 synth but there is no way to send bank or program messages to switch to a plugout patch. Can anyone confirm whether this is possible on the System-8?

Roland System 8

Yes a System-X with a (near) one knob per function interface with plug-outs like the alpha juno, jd-800/990 and D-50 etc. and of course its own modern engine would be great!
