Roland SYSTEM-1

Based on the 70's SYSTEM 100, the Roland SYSTEM-1 breaks new ground with remarkable flexibility and let you access a vast palette of tones characterizing the Roland synths.

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.

73 physical controls. 100 percent synth.
Meet the SYSTEM-1, a synthesizer that's probably unlike any you've encountered before. At its heart is Roland's new Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, which we use to carefully analyze every aspect of analog circuits and then faithfully recreate them down to the finest details. This technology fills the SYSTEM-1, creating a fusion of beautifully classic and utterly modern synthesizer tones.
The SYSTEM-1 not only sounds amazing, but also has a totally innovative design with performance-ready controls, quality construction, and a dizzying array of lights and knobs and sliders that proclaim unashamedly: "I am synthesizer. Hear me roar." Sound good There's more...

Plug in and plug-out
The SYSTEM-1 can control-and even host-software recreations of classic Roland synthesizers. That's right-the SYSTEM-1 gives you access to plug-in versions of legendary Roland synths, and they 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.
We think you'll be excited too once you experience the supreme authenticity of the upcoming SH-101 soft synth, 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-more PLUG-OUT synths are on the way.
