The Roland SYSTEM-500 is a fully analog recreation of one of the most revered electronic instruments of all time. Newly designed in Eurorack format, the SYSTEM-500 delivers the classic character and functionality of the original with the advantages of a modern instrument. The SYSTEM-500 is made to exacting standards with top-quality components and solid controls, with a collaborative production process between Portland, USA and Hamamatsu, Japan. And it’s surprisingly affordable, turning the fantasy of finally owning this legendary instrument into reality.
The Roland Modular VCF SYS-521 (Voltage Controlled Filter) module features two separate low pass filters for modifying the timbre of audio sources. Each filter has its own dedicated controls for frequency cutoff, resonance, and a fixed high pass filter with two switchable cutoff points. Audio and CV input mixers on each channel allow the blending of multiple audio signals and modulation sources.
