The new Roland SYSTEM-500 Complete Set is an instant classic, and a serious contender for best synth package of the past couple of years - especially if you've always loved old analogue modular synths. The System-500 comes in a more compact (and therefore practical) size, but offers exactly the same experience as modules of the past.
Based on the legendary SYSTEM-700 and SYSTEM-100M, the SYSTEM-500 Complete Set is a fully analog modular synthesizer inspired by two of the most revered electronic instruments of all time.
Made for Eurorack format, it's a complete system with multiple oscillators, filters and effects in a versatile custom case with top-quality patch cables. It's perfect for your first modular synth or as the centerpiece of an expanding Eurorack system.
Designed and built in the USA, the SYSTEM-500 Complete Set is made to exacting standards, with top-quality components and extreme attention to detail. It delivers the classic character and playability of a vintage Roland modular synth—with all the advantages of a modern instrument. And it’s surprisingly affordable, turning the fantasy of finally owning one of these legendary instruments into reality.
Descended from legends
The SYSTEM-700 and 100M modular synthesizers were nothing short of groundbreaking in their time and are revered to this day for their classic tone and flexibility. Used by pioneering musicians on numerous landmark recordings, they combined the best of Roland's analog synthesizer technology into supremely powerful modular instruments.
Sought after by synthesizer enthusiasts around the world and beloved by those lucky enough to own one of the originals, these vintage Roland instruments are almost mythical in stature. With the SYSTEM-500 Complete Set, you can now own a modern version of these coveted classics, giving you the purest vintage analog synthesizer tones imaginable.
The gold standard
With two VCOs, two VCFs, two VCAs, two ADSR envelopes, two dedicated LFO sections, and a powerful effects module, the SYSTEM-500 Complete Set is highly flexible and extremely capable right out of the box. It opens up vast possibilities for musical exploration and sound design—and it sounds simply incredible.
It's the sound you hear in your head when you think of big, warm, analog synth tone. You get the gold standard for oscillators combined with the sweet filters and snappy envelopes that make vintage Roland synthesizers so desirable. The extremely thoughtful array of CV/Gate connections and well-placed controls make it a joy to play and an ideal centerpiece for any modular setup.
A modern classic
Beautiful, powerful—and even portable—the SYSTEM-500 Complete Set is made for Eurorack, so you can easily expand by connecting to the wide-range of available Eurorack modules. Or it can neatly integrate into your existing modular setup.
