Overview

Inspired by the past, built in the present, designed for the future, the Roland SYSTEM-8 Synthesizer is a virtual analog powerhouse. Sonic Waveforms are pumped-out from the most powerful hardware synthesizer heart ever created by Roland. Three oscillators per voice, incredible multimode filtering, a myriad of modulation opportunities, and Roland-quality DSP effects create a sonic palette of almost limitless potential, which is why legendary artists the world over have already made the Roland SYSTEM-8 part of their arsenals. The Roland SYSTEM-8 Software Synthesizer brings the powerful sound of this incredible Next Legend to computer-based musicians and producers everywhere as part of a Roland Cloud membership!

Classically Inspired, Future Focused
While the appearance and basic creative flow of the Roland SYSTEM-8 Software Synthesizer will be very familiar to analog synth fans, this plug-in's sonic potential is by no means locked in the past. An impressive three Oscillators per Voice can generate the full tonal range between analog sweet and digital grit, while the SYSTEM-8's incredibly-powerful multimode Filter section is rich with personality (actually, multiple personalities). DSP Effects are an integral part of the modern synthesist's workflow, and the Roland SYSTEM-8's Multi Effects, Chorus/Delay, Reverb and Vocoder will not disappoint.

Ultimate Programming & Performance Control
For synthezizer power-users, combining the Roland SYSTEM-8 Software Synthesizer with its SYSTEM-8 hardware brother is an unbeatable pairing! Sound designers will love being able to play and shape their sounds with a great-feeling velocity-sensitive keyboard and dedicated physical controls for very major function, and the SYSTEM-8 hardware also serves as a high quality USB audio/MIDI interface. Live performers will appreciate being able to transfer their Patches to hardware and take the stage computer-free.
