Roland Plug-Out Synthesizer SYSTEM-1

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 Roland Plug-Out Synthesizer 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

Plug In And Plug-out

The Roland Plug-Out Synthesizer SYSTEM-1 can control—and even host—software recreations of classic Roland synthesizers. That’s right—the Roland 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 Roland 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.

A Few More Things

The Roland SYSTEM-1 looks great, and is designed to work seamlessly with other products in the AIRA series. In addition, you can connect the Roland SYSTEM-1 to your computer via its USB jack to send and receive both audio and MIDI data, including MIDI clock information to sync with external devices and other AIRA units.

System-1 Version 1.1 New Features

  • Backup and Restore — Manage your presets with easy backup and restore over USB.
  • Snapshot — Sends all current knob and slider settings as control change message.
  • Fix LPF CUTOFF Resolution — The increment size for "LPF CUTOFF" when "MODE = SYSTEM-1" was modified.
  • Other Fixes — General improvements to overall operation and PLUG-OUT functionality.

System-1 Version 1.20 New Features

  • Memory function — You can use eight banks, allowing you to store a total of 64 patch memories (8 patch memories x 8 banks).
  • Expanded waveforms added to OSC 1 / OSC 2 — You can use expanded waveforms to make your sounds.
  • Noise Saw: A sawtooth wave with movement similar to an analog circuit. Ideal for making fat sounds.
  • Logic Operation: A waveform that uses a logic circuit to combine multiple waveforms.
  • FM: A frequency-modulated waveform.
  • FM+Sync: Syncs a frequency-modulated waveform to the OSC pitch to produce a scale.
  • Vowel: A waveform similar to human voice.
  • CB: A metallic one-shot sound.
