Vintage analog synth tones in a convenient Eurorack format

If you were into modular synths in the late 1970s, you pined after Roland's System-700 and System-100m. These legendary instruments were prized by pioneering artists such as Human League, Aphex Twin, Hans Zimmer, and Depeche Mode, and used on many of their landmark recordings. The Roland System-500 Complete Set Eurorack synthesizer was designed around those instruments, providing you with a modern version of these sought-after classics. With a System-500 Complete Set in your hands, you'll access a vast universe of pure vintage analog synthesizer tones.

Everything you need for killer analog synth sounds

The Roland System-500 Complete Set Eurorack synthesizer is loaded with five modules that provide two VCOs, two VCFs, two VCAs, two ADSR envelopes, two dedicated LFO sections, and an effects module - the features you call for when building monster analog synth sounds.
