Roland SYSTEM-1 overview

  • 1Description

The AIRA SYSTEM-1 from Roland owes its pedigree to the spirit of the 1970s when the company introduced the SYSTEM 100, SYSTEM 100M, and the SYSTEM 700 modular and semi-modular synthesizers. Sporting a twenty-five key keyboard, four oscillators per voice, and seventy-three physical controls, the synthesizer is flexible and full of Roland synthesis tonal character.

A standout feature is the ability of the instrument to control and even host software recreations of classic Roland synthesizers with no computer required. Switching between the internal sounds and those of the hosted plug-in is possible, providing an intuitive and fully automatic one-to-one control interface.

Seventy-three performance-ready physical controls
Four oscillators for fat synthesizer 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 ten different phrase variations with dynamic, real-time control over ten stages of depth
-12 and -24 dB filter types with independent high-pass filters
Tone knob for easy tonal balancing
Crusher knob for adding a modern edge
Integrated delay and reverb effects
Tempo syncing for LFO and delay
Control and host software recreations of classic Roland synthesizers
Thin keyboard with twenty-five, normal-sized keys

    Roland SYSTEM-1 reviews

    AIRA SYSTEM-1 - PLUG-OUT Synthesizer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy Within 24 hours of ordering from B&H I was un boxing and playing the onboard synth settings. Immediately I was impressed with the overall sound and functionality. However the plug out part was a bit of a hassle to use with Ableton Live but after a little research I had the problem solved. After that hiccup I was back to work and simply blown away the plug out SH 101 sounded remarkable. Can't wait to get future plug out releases as this is a synth that keeps on giving.
