With this synthesizer, there's a slew of onboard effects - including powerful -12dB and -24dB filter types with independent high-pass filters, a crusher knob, and integrated delay and reverb.


Arpeggiate and Scatter

The System-1 includes an advanced arpeggiator with "Scatter" functionality. The Scatter jog dial offers 10 different phrase variations with dynamic, real-time control over 10 stages of depth - perfect for glitching, rolling, and stuttering sounds.


Plug In + Plug-Out

The System-1 can control and even host software recreations of classic Roland synthesizers. The unit has access to plug-in versions that can be hosted internally - no computer required. Switch easily from the internal sounds to the hosted plug-in!
