Roland AIRA System-1 Hardware Synth and Controller

Sounds with Character and Loads of Controls in a PLUG-OUT Capable Synthesizer

Back in the 1970s, Roland launched the SYSTEM 100, SYSTEM 100M, and the now almost mythical SYSTEM 700. These modular and semi-modular synthesizers are heralded to this day for their flexibility and character of sound. In the spirit of its predecessors, the SYSTEM-1 breaks new ground with remarkable flexibility and access to a vast palette of tones with the bold, unmistakable character associated with Roland synthesizers for nearly four decades.

Four oscillators for buckets of fat synth tones
  • Oscillator colors create continuous waveform changes from simple to complex
  • All parameters can be controlled with physical knobs and sliders with LED indicators
  • Advanced arpeggiator with Scatter function
  • Scatter jog dial offers 10 different phrase variations with dynamic, real-time control over 10 stages of depth
  • -12 dB and -24 dB filter types with independent high-pass filters
  • Tone knob for easy tonal balancing
  • Crusher knob for modern edge
  • Integrated delay and reverb effects
  • Tempo syncing for LFO and delay
  • Innovative thin keyboard with 25 normal-sized keys
  • Comfortable to play, yet the most compact Roland synth ever
73 PHYSICAL CONTROLS. 100 PERCENT SYNTH.

Meet the SYSTEM-1, a synthesizer that's probably unlike any you've encountered before. At its heart is Roland's new Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, which we use to carefully analyze every aspect of analog circuits and then faithfully recreate them down to the finest details. This technology fills the SYSTEM-1, creating a fusion of beautifully classic and utterly modern synthesizer tones.

The SYSTEM-1 not only sounds amazing, but also has a totally innovative design with performance-ready controls, quality construction, and a dizzying array of lights and knobs and sliders that proclaim unashamedly: “I am synthesizer. Hear me roar." Sound good, There's more…

PLUG IN AND PLUG-OUT

The SYSTEM-1 can control - and even host - software recreations of classic Roland synthesizers. That's right - the SYSTEM-1 gives you access to plug-in versions of legendary Roland synths, and they can be hosted in the SYSTEM-1 itself, with no computer required. You can even switch between the SYSTEM-1's internal sounds and those of the hosted plug-in. We call this wizardry “PLUG-OUT," and we're pretty excited about it.

We think you'll be excited too once you experience the supreme authenticity of the upcoming SH-101 soft synth, with the SYSTEM-1 providing an intuitive and fully automatic one-to-one control interface that just works. Let's be honest: who could make a better plug-in version of a classic Roland synth than Roland, And the SH-101 is just the beginning - more PLUG-OUT synths are on the way.

A FEW MORE THINGS

The SYSTEM-1 looks great, and is designed to work seamlessly with other products in the AIRA series. In addition, you can connect the SYSTEM-1 to your computer via its USB jack to send and receive both audio and MIDI data, including MIDI clock information to sync with external devices and other AIRA units.

New Features:
  • Backup and Restore - Manage your presets with easy backup and restore over USB.
  • Snapshot - Sends all current knob and slider settings as control change message.
  • Fix LPF CUTOFF Resolution - The increment size for “LPF CUTOFF" when “MODE = SYSTEM-1" was modified.
  • Other Fixes - General improvements to overall operation and PLUG-OUT functionality.
