Classic Heart

The SYSTEM-8 features three expansion slots for hosting and controlling Roland’s PLUG-OUT software synths. JUPITER-8 and JUNO-106 PLUG-OUTs are included, giving you immediate access to authentic sonic reproductions of these Roland classics.

Maximum Sonic Control

Many filter types are available courtesy of the advanced ACB engine, including a side-band filter inherited from Roland’s V-Synth. Top-notch effects are on hand to add character and ambience like overdrive, distortion, fuzz to delay, chorus, reverb and more.

Creative Toolbox

The 64-step sequencer features a familiar TR-REC style interface and dedicated controls to record, play, and manipulate loop sequences in real time. While building your sequences, you can capture single notes or full chords, along your knob and slider action.
