The Roland 'Boutique' series represents a new dawn for electronic synthesis and sound creation. Curated by the original design masters of the classic analogue synths of the 1980s.
For more than 45 years, the Roland Corporation have been producing drum machines and synthesizers, some of which have gone on to achieve legendary status, both within the music industry and with the general public. It's safe to say that without the likes of the 808 Rhythm Composer or the SH101 synthesizer, modern music as we know it would be very different indeed.
In recognition of these legendary products, Roland have produced the all-new Boutique range of Synth and Drum Machine modules, in an effort to help inspire electronic music creativity with a mixture of legendary vintage sounds with a modern sensibility and workflow.
Each instrument in the Roland Boutique Series has been painstakingly recreated in a compact and portable form to allow for immediate creativity wherever the music strikes - whether you're performing live on stage, recording in a studio or even just for your own enjoyment during a quiet moment. These little modules are powerful enough to deliver, wherever you wish.
Whether you're looking to get your hands on an authentic TR-808, TR-909, TB-303 or even an SH-101, but find yourself at odds with the asking price of these instruments, then the Roland Boutique Synth range is definitely for you. Each of those classic modules (and more!) are represented with these compact and powerful instruments, with each and every nuance of the original analog circuits being recreated as faithfully as possible to give you the maximum playing experience whilst you use them.
The sound of each instrument in the Roland Boutique Synth range is immense and iconic. You’ll also find that each model provides a solid foundation for you to build upon. The compact, portable form-factor of Roland Boutique allows for immediate creativity — whether you are onstage, in the studio or creating at home for the pure enjoyment of making music. This is ideal if you want to take it to lessons, create with friends and have something both professional and portable.
