These are authentic reproductions of the Roland System 100M modules from 1974 in Eurorack compatible form. There are 11 in total covering VCOs, filters, envelopes, VCAs, modulation, effects and more.
Behringer had mentioned these last year and there had been rendered images of them up on ModularGrid. But now they’ve revealed the physical working products.
Here’s the detail:
- 112 dual oscillator with 3 waveforms, PWM and two sync modes
- 121 dual filter with 3-channel mixer per filter
- 130 dual VCA, again with dual 3-channel mixers
- 140 dual envelope has 3 outputs per ADSR plus a built-in LFO that can be triggered and phase synced
- 173 gates module comes even with four gates that can switch audio and 6 quad buffered multiples
- 297 has a dual portamento controller plus two independent CV mixers
- 150 brings a ring modulator, 2 noise generators, syncable LFO and a sample and hold generator
- 172 module delivers a 6-step phase-shifter, an analog delay, an LFO and a gate delay
- 305 is an output module a four-band parametric EQ, a 4-channel mixer, line and separate headphone output and even a tuning oscillator
- 182 there is a powerful analog sequencer with either dual 8 steps or 1-16 steps and tempo, portamento and gate time controls
- 110 is a complete synth voice with VCO, VCA and filter in a single module
These are quite complicated and serious modules that, for me, come across a bit dated and fussy and not in a cool vintage way. Although there are plenty of useful things in here, I mean who wouldn’t want a dual Roland filter? There’s no doubt that they are interesting and desirable and should be keenly priced but I think there are more exciting things to come.
No word on pricing or availability yet but ModularGrid.net had them for around €89 each.
