System-500

Roland brought System-500 to Eurorack with Malekko Heavy Industry back in 2015. Designed as an evolution of their System 100m modular system. Now we have four new modules to add to the collection. Let’s check them out.

510

All-in-one synthesizer voice based on the 110 from the System 100m. Three waveform oscillator with a two input filter and VCA. It’s all normalled behind the scenes so it can work without any patching. It’s a whole little Roland synth ready to go in 20hp.

This is a filter that takes its inspiration from the Roland SH-5 synthesizer. On one side there’s a multi-mode filter and on the other is a fixed bandpass filter. 2 inputs for each filter and CV control over cutoff, resonance and VCA.
