Powerful and deep, the System-8 delivers a vast palette of sounds inspired by over four decades of legendary Roland synths. Its next-gen Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) engine powers an eight-voice, three-oscillator monster with stunning filters and effects, highly versatile LFOs, and a massive array of high-resolution knobs and sliders to control it all. Support for three plug-out synths means the System 8 can host spot-on recreations of numerous Roland classics, and Jupiter-8 and Juno-106 plug-outs are even included with purchase (*). Split and layer synths for unheard of sounds, and tap into the integrated vocoder, arpeggiator, CV/Gate outs, and advanced polyphonic step sequencer to fuel endless creative explorations.

  • Juno-106 is scheduled for release in 2017.
  • Support for System-8 on previously released plug-out synths to be available soon.
