Classic meets contemporary.

The SYSTEM-8 draws on our deep history of synthesizer research and development, with circuit-accurate models of classic Roland oscillators, filters, and effects. It includes legendary third-party oscillator types as well, plus the famous JUPITER and JUNO filter designs for super-authentic vintage sounds. The SYSTEM-8 does modern sounds too, with many flavors of digital and analog-style oscillators, plus waveshapes like SuperSaw, FM and more. In addition to classic filter models, options include an all-new VCF along with more recent designs like the unique formant, harmonic, and side-band filters. This makes the SYSTEM-8 unparalleled in its versatility, going from glass to growl—or pluck to punch—with just a few tweaks of its controls.
Supersonic sounds. 

From classic Roland sounds to new and exciting sonic terrain, the dynamic sound engine of the SYSTEM-8 is boundaryless in its tonal flexibility. Access hundreds of brand-new presets by top sound designers and push your tracks into the stratosphere.

Hardware meets software. 

For synthesizer power users, combining the Roland SYSTEM-8 software synthesizer with its hardware sibling is a potent pairing. Sound designers will love the ability to play and shape sounds with a velocity-sensitive keyboard and dedicated controls. Live performers will appreciate transferring patches to hardware and taking the stage computer-free.
