The little brother of the Roland SH-7, the Roland SH-5 is an monophonic analog high-end synthesizer. It’s a particularly well-equipped synthesizer with its 2 VCOs, 2 envelopes, 3 LFOs, 2 VCFs (a VCF with HP, LP, BP selector and modulations and a VCF with BP only), Ring Mod, Sample & Hold, and a mixer matrix for levels adjust and modulations routing.
The Roland Juno-106 is a 6 voices polyphonic vintage analog synthesizer made in 1984. 1 DCO (saw/square/pulse) + Noise + Sub osc per voice, HPF and LPF 24dB/oct, one LFO and one ADSR envelope to modulate DCO and VCF, analog chorus: not really a synthesis master but a lot of personnality, and this Juno model features patch memory (instead of Juno-6) and full MIDI implementation (instead of Juno-60).
While the Roland SH-09, complement of the RS-09 Organ/String Machine, only have one VCO + sub oscillator, the Roland SH-2 is the same thing with one more VCO (and a sine wave added). With the external input going thru the great filter of this pretty nice vintage analog monosynth, you can have some good time filtering on!
As a part of the cool analog tandem TB-303 / TR-606, this Roland TR-606 (aka “Drumatix”) is à 32 patterns / 8 songs vintage drumboxe with 7 fully analog drum sounds. The pattern can be edited wile running and the box got DIN in/out for sync. And it can runs on 1.5V battery if you want to create some good house loops lying on the beach…
Splendidly used by Vangelis in the early years for its pure analog filtered choir and its superbs strings sounds, the Roland VP-330 is also a famous creamy 10 bands Vocoder in a beatyfull wood case. The rackmount version is the Roland SVC-350.
Not really a Roland Jupiter 8 in a box, since there’s two rev. (4 & 5) with different filters (IR3109 / IR3R05) and no arpeggiator. But the MKS-80 is a great little analog 8 voices polyphonic machine with 2 VCOs per voice, memories, LP/HP filters with modulation. And the MPG-80 programmer makes it a serious realtime intuitive machine.
The Synthesizer only of the Roland System 100. Cosmeticaly not in a really good shape but maybe a good price. Consider after buying this little baby you will need to find the expander 102, the mixer 103, the sequencer 104, and the monitor Speakers 109 to get the system complete…
