ROLAND SYSTEM 100 MODEL 101 TUTORIAL & OVERVIEW


Published on Sep 13, 2017 once upon a synth

"This is a tutorial and overview of the Roland System 100 Model 101. The Model 101 is the keyboard synth part of the system. The system also included speakers, a synth expander, a mixer and a sequencer. This was a system of synths made by Roland in the 70s. It sounds really smooth and fat and has that classic vintage Roland sound which can also be found on the bigger brothers SH-5 and SH-7. In this video I go over each component, knob, button and jack on the front panel of the synth.

This is a fairly simple and standard synth on spec. It has a single oscillator, a single ADSR envelope generator, a single LFO and a combo low pass and high pass filter. What sets it apart is that it's semi-modular so you get to patch in and out the different components. It also has a really nice basic tone. It's one of those synths that has a large sweet spot and sounds good in almost all settings.

Here's that synthesis 101 video I was referring to in the video (if you're new to synthesizers):"

SUBTRACTIVE SYNTHESIS AND MODULAR TUTORIAL FOR BEGINNERS ~ Featuring the Kilpatrick Audio Phenol

Published on Apr 5, 2017 once upon a synth

"In this video I explain the basics of subtractive synthesis with an emphasis on modular synths. This is intended for complete beginners to synthesizers. We cover concepts like timbre, synthesis, harmonic content, the fundamental, control voltage, gate, trigger, audio vs control signals. The video starts off with theory and we end the second half with a practical demo using the Kilpatrick Audio Phenol semi-modular synth. This tutorial is not gear specific and the concept should apply to any subtractive synth."
