De modulaire alleskunner met een eigen geluid
P. Lesterhuis, 20.02.2021
Ben je opzoek naar een compleet modulair systeem, dan is de complete set van Roland echt een aanrader. De modules zijn stuk voor stuk topkwaliteit. De VCO module bevat twee oscillatoren, die onafhankelijk van elkaar op verschillende manieren gemoduleerd kunnen worden. Daarnaast kun je oscillator 2 ook synchroniseren met oscillator 1. Het duurt wel even voordat de VCO's stabiel zijn (ruim 30 minuten).

De dubbel uitgevoerde VCF bevat een typisch Roland filter. Naast een Low Pass Filter (cutoff) bevat de VCF ook een High Pass Filter, ideaal om de soms storende lage frequenties op voorhand uit je mix te halen.

De contour van je geluid kun je met een eveneens dubbel uitgevoerde ADSR instellen. Daarnaast bevat de set ook een LFO die ook via gate getriggerd kan worden en (relatief eenvoudige) effect-mogelijkheden.

Wat eigenlijk nog ontbreekt is het volgende: MIDI/CV/Gate-aansturing en een Sample&Hold + portamento. Voor de eerste gebruik ik de Black MIDI-CV V2 van Erica Synth en de System 500-555 van Roland gebruik ik voor een extra LFO, S&H en portamento. Vooral de 500-555 is een enorme aanwinst. Je zou zelfs kunnen overwegen om aanwezige effect-module (500-572) te vervangen door de 500-555.

Het geheel is netjes afgewerkt en wordt geleverd met 10 rode patchkabels en een voeding.

nice sounds but to many functions cramped into the small eurorack-format
james n, 03.12.2019
love the sound, great technical functionality but the tiny controllers are somewhat hard to handle, the settings on detail level are not as precise as you would wish for. But that's eurorack commons maybe .
