PLUGIN VERSION OF THE ACCLAIMED SYSTEM-1

Get all the sonic power and versatility of the acclaimed SYSTEM-1 synthesizer in a VST and AU compatible plugin.

 

Features

Like the SYSTEM-1 hardware, this software version breaks new ground with remarkable flexibility and a vast palette of stunning sounds. It has the bold, unmistakable character associated with Roland synthesizers for over four decades. For SYSTEM-1 hardware owners, the software provides advanced editor/librarian functions and total DAW integration. For in-the-box producers, it delivers the mighty sound of the SYSTEM-1 without the need for hardware.

Future Classic

Since its release, the SYSTEM-1 has received worldwide acclaim for its ability to dish out an astonishing array of synth tones, from vintage to modern. Spend a little time with its intuitive controls and you’ll quickly appreciate the ability to dial-up all manner of instantly usable sounds that sit perfectly in a mix. Thumping basses, glistening arps, warm pads, plucked synths, lo-fi effects. We’re talking desert island synth.

At its heart is our Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, which we use to carefully analyze the structure and behavior 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 synth tones that live and breathe.

Advanced Arpeggiator

The SYSTEM-1’s advanced arpeggiator with its Scatter capability gives it unprecedented versatility and playability. Six arpeggio types with six step settings combine with variable Scatter type and depth to create a seemingly infinite selection of patterns. Smoothly controllable, you can even arpeggiate synth parameters like cutoff and resonance, in addition to notes.

Hardware. Meet Software.

The SYSTEM-1 Software Synthesizer is a must-have if you own the SYSTEM-1 or SYSTEM-1m hardware. Seamless, bi-directional communication between the hardware and software provides complete editor/librarian functionality and an automatic, one-to-one hardware control interface that just works.

*Although Roland has tested numerous configurations and has determined that on average, a computer system similar to that described above will permit normal operation of the PLUG-OUT SOFTWARE SYNTHESIZER, Roland cannot guarantee that a given computer can be used satisfactorily with the PLUG-OUT SOFTWARE SYNTHESIZER based solely on the fact that it meets the above requirements. This is because there are too many other variables that may influence the processing environment, including differences in motherboard design and the particular combination of other devices involved.
