As part of its 909 Day event, Roland is introducing the Roland System-8 Plug-out Synthesizer, a poly synth based on the company’s circuit-modeling technology.
In this video, Sweetwater’s Daniel Fisher demos the new Roland System-8 synthesizer in an extended hands-on demo.
At the core of this awesome synthesizer is Roland’s Analog Circuit Behavior engine, fueling three oscillators across eight voices, all loaded with filters, effects, and a massive array of modulation options.
In addition to its internal sound engine, Plug-out technology lets you load up completely different synth engines – JUPITER-8 and JUNO-106 Plug-outs included – and you can switch between three models on the fly.
It also offers split and layered synths, an integrated vocoder, and more.
Update: It looks like Sweetwater may have jumped the gun in releasing this video today, and the video has been changed to be private. We expect the video to be made public again after Roland releases official specs on the System-8.
