SYSTEM-1: PLUG-OUT Synthesizer

Modern Vintage

Back in the 1970s, Roland launched the SYSTEM 100, 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. Over the years, they’ve been put to great use by visionary artists on countless classic tracks.



Modern Vintage

Meet the SYSTEM-1, a synthesizer probably unlike any you’ve encountered before. Like its predecessors, the SYSTEM-1 breaks new ground with remarkable flexibility and access to a vast palette of synthesized sounds with the bold and unmistakable character associated with Roland synthesizers for nearly four decades.

At the heart of the SYSTEM-1’s sound is our new Analogue Circuit Behaviour technology (ACB) which we use to carefully analyse every aspect of analogue circuits and then faithfully recreate them down to the finest details. This technology fills the SYSTEM-1 with a fusion of beautifully classic and utterly modern synthesizer tones.

The SYSTEM-1 can control and even host software recreations of classic Roland synthesizers. That’s right. The SYSTEM-1 can control plug-in versions of now legendary Roland synths, and those same plugins can be hosted in the SYSTEM-1 itself – with no computer required. You can even switch between the SYSTEM-1’s internal sounds and those of the hosted plug-in. We call this wizardry “PLUG-OUT” – and we’re pretty excited about it.

And we think you’ll be excited too once you experience the supreme authenticity of the upcoming SH-101 softsynth, with the SYSTEM-1 providing an intuitive and fully automatic one-to-one control interface that just works. Let’s be honest - who could make a better plug-in version of a classic Roland synth than Roland?

And the SH-101 is just the beginning.

The SYSTEM-1 not only sounds amazing, but it also has a totally innovative design with performance ready controls, quality construction, and a dizzying array of lights and knobs and sliders.   

    Four oscillators for buckets of fat synth tones
    Oscillator colours 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
    SCATTER jog dial offers 10 different phrase variations with dynamic, real-time control over 10 stages of depth
    Variety of modulation functions including ring modulation, cross modulation and oscillator sync

    Tone knob for easy tonal balancing
    Crusher knob for modern edge
    Integrated Delay and Reverb effect units
    Tempo syncing for LFO and Delay
    Innovative thin keyboard with 25 normal sized keys
    Comfortable to play and yet the most compact Roland synth ever
