Roland System 100 Model 104 Step Sequencer Hands-On Demo

This video, via Vykaar Tones, is a hands-on demo of the Roland System 100 Model 104 step sequencer.

Note that there are three Model 104’s shown in the video; only the center one is being used in this demo.

Here’s what they have to say about the technical details:

Roland System-100 Model-104 Sequencer sending CV and GATE to a Doepfer Dark Energy Mk1 (out of view) producing the sound, which is also going through eventide delays and reverb.

A quick demo of one channel only, showing the various step lengths, gate time and pitch control voltage ranges – 2.5v, 5v, 10v. As there is no quantizer, it is obviously easier to get the right pitches quick using the 2.5v range.

This is a unique build of three 104s bolted together, matching the width of an ARP 2600, which it is usually used with.

One thought on “Roland System 100 Model 104 Step Sequencer Hands-On Demo

  1. Good heavens – the delay and reverb – hard to even hear what’s going on! Why must so many YouTube synth videos be awash in delay and verb?

    Oops! I sound like a grumpy old man!

    LOVE the sequencer though…
