In the 1970’s Roland first launched the System 100, System 100M, and the System 700 synthesisers, these groundbreaking semi-modular synthesisers are still championed to this day due to their durability and vibrant sounding character. In the spirit of its predecessors, the System-1 comes with excellent flexibility and breaks new ground with an enormous palette of tones that bring you the same compelling, unmistakable character that makes Roland synthesisers massively sought after.
