Plug-out support
Captain Pungent, 27.05.2019
I bought this specifically for the plug-out functionality. It can only load ONE plug-out synth at a time, and it only works with SH-101, SH-2 and PROMARS. Unfortunately that information is not available anywhere, so I thought to share with you here.

Greetings! Just purchase the Roland system 1m a Semi Modular Synth and have to say that that is very funny to to play!
I'm starting to create some experimental Psy-Trance music and the system 1m help me a lot creating cosmic ambients, build ups and drops from the LFO.
I just found some troubles in the LFO Rate which are no separate from bars, but at the same time is good to create more natural movement!
I like a lot the sound of the wave tables it sound very interesting!
Thanks a lot to help me in my mission on Earth!

Für mich ein Rückschritt
26.01.2016
Ich hatte mir zu meinem Sequentix Cirklon eine Klangquelle mit möglichst direkter Erreichbarkeit aller Parameter über das Frontpanel gewünscht. System-1m scheint das zu bieten. Ferner haben mich einige Youtube-Videos fasziert, in denen das System in einen modularen Aufbau eingebunden wird. Tests und Bewertungen versprechen auch nur Gutes.
Beim "Spielen" am Gerät hat mich aber bald gestört, daß ich die eingestellten Werte nicht sehen kann. Ich hatte mir das nicht so extrem vorgestellt, aber man tappt doch arg im Dunkeln. Dazu kommt, daß es nur Potis und Fader gibt. Man dreht oder schiebt also erst 'mal ein Stück, bis sich etwas tut. War's der falsche Dreh, dann weiß man nicht mehr, wie's eingestellt war. Kein Weg zurück. Um zu kontrollieren, ob ich mich nur zu doof anstelle, habe ich meinen altem Waldorf MicroQ reaktiviert und ein bißchen daran "geschraubt". So soll's sein: Ein erster Dreh am Knopf zeigt erst 'mal, wo man ist. Erst wenn man weiterdreht, verändert sich auch der Parameter. Der selbstverständlich im Display zu sehen ist. Als jemand, der selbst in der Elektronikentwicklung aktiv ist, frage ich mich, wieso das heute nicht alle so machen. Bei einem vollanalogen Gerät sehe ich ja die Potis noch ein, aber hier werden die Potistände nur von einem Microcontroller abgefragt und verarbeitet. Der kommt mit Encodern genauso klar. Und die kosten im Einkauf nur ein paar Cent mehr als Potis.
Vielleicht ist der Klang des System-1m "analoger" als der des MicroQ, aber das ist für mich nicht wichtig. Für mich zählt die intuitive, schnelle Bedienung. Und die sehe ich beim Roland-Gerät nicht. Das bremst den kreativen Prozess.
Ach ja: Ich habe festgestellt, daß der VCA-Ausgangspegel so hoch werden kann, daß der Hall-Effekt übersteuert. Vielleicht wird das mit dem Systemupdate abgestellt? Habe ich dann nicht mehr ausprobiert.
