Roland SYSTEM-1 Plug-In/Out Synthesizer – Part 1

This the first part of the sound review of the Roland SYSTEM-1 Plugin Synthesizer. You hear correctly, a software plug-in Synthesizer based on the hardware Synthesizer SYSTEM-1. The plug-in version of SYSTEM-1 offers you the same technology and sound possibilities as the Hardware Plug-Out Synthesizer. 


For this tests, I connected my SYSTEM-1 Plug-out Synthesizer in my DAW to get an USB Controller for this plug-in. 


The impressions from this Part 1 is a bit special. Optical, the SYSTEM-1 Hardware and Software Synthesizer are not the beautiful products on the market and they polarize a lot the market. Some people doesn’t love the look other one absolutely. Also the keyboard feeling on the SYSTEM-1 Hardware isn’t good. 


On the other, you get an great sounding product with a lot of sound possibilities, many waveforms and other great features like cross-modulation. Also the usability is great with many knobs. 


I must say that the SYSTEM-1 is a great sounding “green product”, with a big plus for usability but with some optical minus points. 


I hope to test for you also all other Roland plug-out/in Synthesizer available on the market.
