Vintage-style modular and Eurorack synths are coming back in a big way. Contemporary music trends have seen more and more musicians turn to the analog-inspired sounds of old, and manufacturers have responded in kind.

Roland are at the forefront of this trend, producing faithful reissues of some of their most popular releases in recent years and satisfying our renewed love for classic-sounding synth technology. 

For 2018, they've decided to keep up the momentum with additions to their System-500 series. These compact modules are inspired by the legendary System-700 and System 100M series, aiming to provide never-ending modular synth fun in a handy, budget-friendly format! 

The System-500 555

Roland System-500 Series SYS-555

Channeling inspiration from the Roland SYSTEM-100m's 150 and 165 modules, the SYS-555 is a five-in-one powerhouse that brings core utility functions to your modular setup, but with some new and interesting twists. The SYS-555 contains both traditional and non-traditional modulation sources applicable to any imaginable configuration or setup. With ring modulation, versatile sample and hold with seven waveforms and internal LPF, pink and white noise modes, LFO with internal ENV and VCA, and two CV controlled portamento circuits, your tonal shaping and modulation options are near infinite.
