"This is a real rarity in any condition, arguably Roland's rarest vintage synth, and here we have one almost 'New Old Stock' in the original box! An early 80's desktop module from Roland in their absolute prime, based on the SH101 / MC202 architecture with the classic Curtis CEM3340 VCO plus the legendary IR3109 VCF chip as found in everything from the Jupiter 8 to the Juno 60. Driven by CV/gate, we've tested it using both an Arturia MicroFreak and a Korg SQ1 with stunning results, and has the added bonus of a built in 2 channel mono-signal mixer for routing other gear through, plus 21 slider caps as used on the Juno 6 and 60! Mad!!! Feels like this unique unit pre-dated the whole 'desktop module' thing that has been with us since the early days of Virtual Analogue from Nord and Access Virus, and by around 25 years! A very modern feeling old thing, with that small desk-space footprint but big sound we're all looking for these days."
