Slight Front Panel Design Revision for new Roland System 500 Modules? - Summer NAMM 2015 Pics

flickr set by Pete Brown

Pic of the new Roland 500 series eurorack modules (enclave case).  This one was spotted and sent in via Soviet Space Child. The difference is subtle but there.  If you are wondering what the difference is, compare the sides to the originals here (you can also see them in the videos here and here) then come back. Don't read further below if you want to see if you can spot the difference yourself.

OK, if you are stumped, it's the lines on the edges of the modules. The original design in the previous posts did not have them.

Below is an image of the upcoming Roland JD-Xa flagship synth also at this year's Summer NAMM.

"Summer NAMM Show, Nashville, TN, July 8, 2015 — Roland (Booth #924) has expanded its popular line of AIRA products with a new FREE customizer app and two software synths that offer flexible options and infinite music creation possibilities that further blur the lines between software and hardware.

The AIRA Modular Customizer app lets AIRA users fully re-program the internal signal path of AIRA Modular effects units (compatible with TORCIDO, BITRAZER, DEMORA and SCOOPER effects). The app’s array of virtual, re-patchable sub-modules offers complete control of each effect’s signal path, for full user customization. For added flexibility, patches can also be saved and recalled in real time, and shared with other AIRA Modular effect users.

There are currently 15 virtual sub-modules, with more available in the near future. They include: LFO, ADSR, NOISE, SAMPLE & HOLD, RING MOD, FILTER 6 dB, FILTER 12 dB, TONE, AMP, MIXER, STEREO MIXER, CURVE CONV, GATE DIVIDER, TRIG TO CV DELAY TIME, and MIDI CLOCK TO GATE. Musicians can use them to easily customize the signal path of their AIRA effect by connecting the headphone jack of their smartphone or tablet to the REMOTE IN jack on any AIRA modular effect module. Alternatively, users can connect via USB to MAC or PC for realtime control.

The AIRA Modular Customizer app is iOS / Android / Mac OS X / Windows compatible, and is now available for free download. Please visit for full details, download links, and OS compatibility information.

Two new AIRA soft synths are debuting on July 8: the SH-101 PLUG-OUT Software Synthesizer, and the SYSTEM-1 Software Synthesizer with Librarian.

Like its hardware counterpart, the new SH-101 PLUG-OUT Software Synthesizer is a complete and authentic reproduction of Roland’s iconic SH-101 monophonic synth from the 1980s, right down to the fine details and odd quirks that make it one of the most popular classic synthesizers of all time. Based on Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, the new soft synth version not only reproduces the original SH-101’s legendary sounds, but faithfully recreates the very behavior of its analog circuitry. Included are classic SH-101 synth sounds—bass, lead, noise, and sound effects, plus reverb, chorus, delay and crusher effects that were not included in the original.

The SYSTEM-1 Software Synthesizer with Librarian features many of the same functions as the hardware SYSTEM-1/1m version. It offers the same sound quality as its hardware counterpart, making it ideal for musicians who either work solely in the software world, or who are considering the hardware version and would like to audition it first. In addition, based on popular user request from the hardware version, the Librarian software has been expanded to now include 64 patches.

Both synths are available for purchase via download; a free trial version is also available. In addition, the Librarian software for SYSTEM-1 is available for free to registered SYSTEM-1/1m owners.

NAMM 2015 - MOOG - The Coolest Synth Ever Made

Published on Jan 26, 2015 THE MUSICIAN NETWORK (TMNtv)

Quick demo of the System 35 at this years NAMM. Note the price mentioned below also includes the optional Sequencer Complement B not visible.

"While we walked thru the MOOG booth at Winter NAMM 2015, we came across this ***incredible*** hand-built HUGE custom synthesizer manufactured by the company. It sells for......wait for it......$22,000 dollars and MOOG is planning on only making 40+ units during 2014 and that's IT. When they are "gone their gone" - so, if you want better purchase one thru one of their authorized dealers = ASAP. Finally, just listen to how FULL & TRUE the tones are coming out of this beauty!!! Simply - in our opinion - absolutely the COOLEST synthesizer EVER MADE by the company & man (Bob Moog) who = Started It All !!!! Enjoy, The Musician Network (TMNtv)"

"Met Leon by his Dewatron at the Big City Music booth at Namm. Welcome to the worst camera work on youtube but the conversation about invention of unusual instruments was fun and over to the right people are madly playing away on his Dewtron. Not the modern reissue of the 1930s French all metal speaker which was connected to the Dewatron. A clip for geeks like us I suppose."
