AlanForPresident's review"perfect vintage gear"

Roland SYSTEM 100
This is a classic analog synth from I think the 70’s. I sounds amazing and looks great. I haven't seen a piece of vintage analog keyboard great look this cool. Using it will make time go by really fast because it does take some effort and patience to get what you want to get out of it. But once you get the hang of it , it wont take as long to get the job done. But it still wont be quick, remember this is vintage gear and its not like dialing up a bunch of presets from today’s work station keyboards.


UTILIZATION

There are two on board speakers that sound great, but sometimes in these units when purchasing them the speakers can sound crappy. Its just because they have been through all types of stuff and they are 40 years old. If one of the speakers go out, they really aren't that hard to fix, I have done it myself before, but I didn’t have to rig it up. But its just so you can hear it, its really not going to affect the sound once you record it into your mixer. Sequencing on this unit is something that I do not do, I hate sequencing on old gear, I would rather just record the audio out into my daw and go from there.


SOUNDS

The sounds are very nice and thick, they did require a lot of eq because some of them where really thick on the low end so I had to cut it back a bit to make it sit right in the mix. But I still use this board a lot today, though I don’t have it here at my house I can still get my hands on it whenever I want at a local musicians house that I work with a lot.


OVERALL OPINION

This unit is great, it is pretty expensive and I don’t think I will every be able to afford one for home, not that I would want to because it would take up a lot of space and a lot of space I don’t have here. But if I do get some space this will be the first piece of gear that I get to fill it.

Roland SYSTEM 100
Semi modular synth monophonic:

A master keyboard, an expander, a sequencer, a mixer, 2 Speakers

Too much stuff to say, so for more information on CHARACTERISTICS, you can go here:

UTILIZATION

The setup is simple when you understand the principle of this kind of synth. Otherwise, just galre for beginners.
The edition sounds: there are no presets, since it's all analog, with lots of potards.Donc, to change the sound, we re-read his notes and the knobs are rebouge.
The manual is in English. If you are a minimum English is comprhensible. It may be a little lightweight if we know anything at all (it dates from 1976 when even!).

SOUNDS

The sounds are excellent, it's going to the big bass sounds more psyche. Trs good.
It is no effect as such, but this machine is just a big effect itself.
It's an old machine, so no VLOC or aftertouch, or pitchbend (damage) by a portamento and cons on a glide.
2 "book patch" taient shipped with the system 100. These are books o the positioning of the knobs and connections of patches are drawings for sound "factory" so to speak. I love the sounds of this synth.

OVERALL OPINION

Purchased in October 2003 complete
The oscilloscope is stable, it does not dsaccorde.
I love this synthavec a little imagination can be a bit of everything and anything.
I buy it eyes closed
