The Roland System-8 Plug-Out Synthesizer uses Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology 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 the creation of phat basses, smooth rolling pads, shrieking leads, or even pristine plucks easier than it has ever been. The device's straightforward user interface allows anyone to pick up the System-8 and randomly begin tweaking, while veteran synthesists can systematically create their soundscapes.
