SOLTON PROJECT 100


video upload by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Frankly we're not that well versed in 80s Digital or hybrid synths - MIDI sync, sub menus accessible by pressing three buttons simultaneously while peering into unsexy tiny screens trying to figure out what parameter you're actually tweaking...

It can be demoralising.

But we like the Solton Project 100 a lot - maybe because it looks like the Solton Programmer 24 - and they match up very nicely sound wise as well - more of that to come.

It's a 6 voice DCO synthesizer with SSM filters and came out around the same time as the Roland Juno 106. In this video we're only using the Solton Project 100 - and especially its built-in sequencer - basically just recording patterns and then flipping through the presets to create something.

The sequencer doesn't quantize at all from what we can tell - which is a bit odd - but also kind of cool.

It definitely grants you textures and phrases that you might not have settled for were they perfectly in grid.

Jason Basson made a ton of impulsive videos of the Solton Project 100 a while back - does anyone know what happened to him? [He's still around. You can find some of his Solton videos in previous posts here]
