PLUG-OUT 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

You can't save plug-outs to the SD card. You can only backup the system, or export sound data (patches, performances). If you need to reload a System-1 plug-out, you'll need the laptop. The System-8 Juno and Jupiter plug-outs can be restored without a computer.
