The System-500 from Roland is a complete Eurorack modular synthesizer based on the classic System-100m, delivering the classic character and functionality of the original with the advantages of a modern instrument. Built in the USA and assembled in Japan, the system utilizes top-quality components and solid controls.
The System-500 includes the 512 Dual VCO, 521 Dual VCF, 530 Dual VCA, 540 Dual Envelope Generator + LFO, and the 572 Phase Shifter + Delay + LFO. The modules are housed in the portable SYR-E84 case that can be used flat, angled, or in a vertical position. The detachable lid can be attached onto the back of the case to provide stability when stacking multiple cases. The System-500 includes all of the necessary installation screws, two 16-pin Eurorack power supply cables, an AC power adapter, and a power cord.
System-500 Series - 512 Dual VCO - Eurorack Module
The System-500 Series - 512 from Roland is a dual, voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) in a single Eurorack module. Each independent VCO offers pulse-, triangle-, and saw-waveform outputs simultaneously with 1V/octave tracking and variable pulse width via panel control or CV modulation. Each oscillator can also be synchronized to the other with a hard/soft selection switch to create unique "sync" sounds. The 512 ships with four rack screws and a ribbon cable to connect to an optional Eurorack modular power supply.
System-500 Series - 521 Dual VCF - Eurorack Module
The System-500 Series - 521 from Roland is a dual, voltage-controlled filter (VCF) in a single Eurorack module. Each independent VCF offers a three inputs with level slider controls, dedicated cutoff and resonance knobs, and three modulation inputs with inputs two and three offering attenuation sliders. Additionally, each filter has a 3-way switchable high-pass filter with off/1/2 settings. The 521 ships with four rack screws and a ribbon cable to connect to an optional Eurorack modular power supply.
System-500 Series - 530 Dual VCA - Eurorack Module
The System-500 Series - 530 from Roland is a dual, voltage-controlled amplifier (VCA) in a single Eurorack module. Each independent VCA offers three inputs with level-slider controls, an initial level knob, and three modulation inputs with dedicated level sliders. Additionally, each VCA has a 2-way switch for linear or exponential settings, LED indicators for load and overloaded signals, and two summed outputs, which combine the outputs of each VCA. The 530 ships with four rack screws and a ribbon cable to connect to an optional Eurorack modular power supply.
System-500 Series - 540 Dual Envelope and LFO- Eurorack Module
The System-500 Series - 540 from Roland is a dual voltage-controlled envelope and a single low-frequency oscillator (LFO) in a single Eurorack module. Each independent envelope offers parameter slider for attack, decay, sustain, and release (ADSR) and includes two standard outputs and one inverse output. Additionally, the envelopes have a manual-trigger switch, a fast/slow envelope-speed switch, and a gate-trigger switch that selects whether the envelope is triggered externally/manually or cycles, which creates a self-cycle based on attack and decay settings.
The LFO offers knob controls for selecting the frequency and delay, while the CV Freq input allows for voltage control over the frequency of the LFO. Additionally, the LFO offers the simultaneous outputs of five waveforms, including square, triangle, sawtooth, reverse sawtooth, and sine. The Freq Range offers a three-way switch for selecting high-, medium-, and low-frequency ranges, while the Keyboard-Trigger switch offers settings for resetting the LFO waveform by envelope 1 or 2. The Delay Trigger also resets the LFO delay by envelope 1 or 2. The 540 ships with four rack screws and a ribbon cable to connect to an optional Eurorack modular power supply.
The System-500 Series - 572 from Roland is a time-based multi-effects Eurorack module that includes a 5-stage phase shifter, analog audio delay, a control-voltage gate delay, and an LFO. Offering controls for shift frequency & resonance, the phase shifter is capable of subtle to deep analog effects, while the audio delay offers independent control of delay time and resonance and creates flange- and chorus-like effects. Both the phase shifter and audio delay can be modulated by the internal LFO or via external CV signals, while the wet/dry effects mix is controllable manually or via an external CV signal.
The LFO offers a knob for controlling frequency and features a triangle wave and inverse triangle wave output. The Gate Delay features knobs to control threshold, delay time, and gate for modifying incoming gate signals from other modules. The 572 ships with four rack screws and a ribbon cable to connect to an optional Eurorack modular power supply.
SYR-E84 Eurorack Case
The SYR-84 Eurorack Case from Roland is designed to protect and transport any System-500-series module, System-1m module, BITRAZER, DEMORA, TORCIDO, and SCOOPER modules, or any standard Eurorack synthesizer module. The 84hp case is constructed from black aluminum with wood sides and can be used flat, angled, or vertical. The detachable lid can be attached on the rear of the case to add stability when stacking multiple cases. The included stacking screws allow for two SYR-E84s to be joined together when larger setups are required.
The high-capacity 2000mA DC power supply is specifically designed for modular instruments and provides stable, low-noise power for clean and reliable operation. Additionally, the case offers over-current protection to safeguard users and modules form hazardous current. The SYR-84 case ships with two male flying-bus cables, 40x installation screws, a DC power supply, and power cord.
