The Roland System-8 is an eight voice polyphonic synthesizer that utilizes ACB and plug out technology.
Building on the AIRA System-1 and System-1m, the System-8 provides eight voices based upon it's predecessor with some very unique additions and tweaks.
Using the most powerful form of ACB yet, the system 8 produces authentic analogue tones and brittle, brash digital tones also.
Like the other System series synths, System 8 can host Plug out synthesizers allowing you to own other models from Rolands iconic back catalogue. System-8 ships with both Jupiter-8 and Juno-106 plug out synthesizer models.
Not just a plug out host or blase digital synthesizer, System-8 is a formidable machine in its own right. Boasting three oscillators, multi-mode filter, comprehensive modulation capabilities and beautifully crafted effects sections SYSTEM-8 is a powerhouse sound design tool.
Speaking of sound design, the system 8 has a rather unique oscillator structure. You have the standard forray of analogue waveforms, but interestingly each waveform has a variation setting. Effectively a second preset for the oscillator sections, this doubles the amount of raw sound generating options and adds some other sounds that aren't possible on other synths.
This variation is also available on the filter section, when engaged it adds some ring mod, short delay, come karplus strong sounds overtones to the filter character, further increasing the versatility of the synth.
System 8 is a evolution of the system-1, retaining the key elements that made the original so formidable and adding those extra ingredients to make it even better.
