NAMM 2016: Roland System-500 Analog Modular Synthesizer
Brand new for 2016, the Roland System-500 Analog Modular Synthesizer has been designed and built in the USA, and features multiple oscillators, filters and effects in a versatile custom case with professional-quality patch cables.

Inspired by two of the most revered electronic instruments of all time - the legendary System-700 and System-100M, the System-500 offers vintage Roland analog tone in a modern instrument.

Creating an elegant instrument that looks as good as it sounds, this complete system is portable enough to be taken with you and flexible enough that two units together can be neatly stacked together - resulting in a larger, more powerful system.

With two VCOs, two VCFs, two VCAs, two ADSR envelopes, two dedicated LFO sections and a powerful effects module, the System-500 Complete Set is both highly flexible and extremely capable right out of the box.

Think of big, warm, analog synth tonality - that's the sound you hear from the System-500, opening up endless possibilities for musical exploration and sound design.

Delivering the classic character and playability of a vintage Roland modular synth, with all the advantages of a modern instrument, the Roland System-500 is perfect as your first modular synth or as the centerpiece of an ever-expanding Eurorack system.
