Roland System 8

The Roland System-8 Plug-Out Synthesizer used a next generation technology called Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) to drive the powerful eight-voice, three oscillator System-8. Armed with high resolution controls like sliders and knobs, the ability to control three Plug-Out synths, and outstanding filters and effects, this is truly a monster of a synthesizer.

The Analog Circuit Behavior engine accurately emulates the classic analog synthesizer sounds that we all know and love. The three oscillators, plus the sub oscillator, make it super easy to create phat basses or smooth rolling pads to shrieking leads or pristine plucks. The easy to understand user interface means that anyone can pick up the System-8 and randomly begin tweaking, or the experienced user can systematically create their soundscapes - the System-8 lends itself to both styles of uses.
