Press release follows, including a pic of the original Shared System followed by the black and gold.

"After more than a decade of production, the Shared System is being retired, with its final run currently shipping to dealers worldwide.

The Shared System was originally designed in 2012 as a self-contained instrument which was mailed to artists to create music for the Shared System series of 7” records on Make Noise Records. The Shared System was then officially released after the records later in 2012, updated in 2015 as the Black & Gold Shared System and again in 2017 as the Black & Gold Shared System Plus.

The Shared System is the deepest and most complex of our systems, bringing together many of our synthesis techniques into one system. From analog FM to voltage controlled granularization, the Shared System goes to more sound destinations than most folks have time to travel to in a single lifetime. While this marks the end for the Shared System’s production, the instrument will provide an endless source of inspiration for years to come. As always, we cannot wait to hear what you create with yours!

To commemorate the Shared System’s retirement, we have posted a new video to our YouTube channel ('Tony Talks Shared System'), in which Make Noise founder Tony Rolando sits down to reminisce on the origins and history of the Shared System.

While the original Shared System records are long out of print, three of the five Shared System Series artists currently host their Make Noise Records releases digitally on their Bandcamp pages and can be heard via the links below:"
