Product Description

Roland's AIRA System-1m semi-modular synthesizer packs powerful plug-out capability, along with superb standalone operation, into a format flexible enough to integrate into your synth rig. Whether you're looking to add to your Eurorack set-up, want a table-top synth for your AIRA system, or have to have a great synthesizer option that's rack-mountable, the System-1m can do it all and sound great while doing it. The synth experts here at GearNuts think the flexible format along with its versatility of sound make Roland's AIRA System-1m a great choice whether it's your next synth or your first.

The SYSTEM-1m is a semi-modular synthesizer with PLUG-OUT capability and a unique design that can be used as a Eurorack module, tabletop synth, or 19” rackmount unit. In addition to being a powerful standalone instrument, the SYSTEM-1m has external inputs and an array of CV/Gate connections that allow it to be re-patched and to interface with other modular synthesizer systems. The SYSTEM-1m’s CV/Gate connections combined with its ability to load classic Roland PLUG-OUT synth models like the SH-101 and PROMARS give it power and flexibility that is simply unparalleled.

  • 19 color-coded CV/Gate and audio connections with LED lighting
  • Versatile oscillators with six waveforms, Crossmod, Ring Mod, Sync and Color control
  • External input for processing external signals through filter, amp and FX section
  • Ableton Live Lite is included

Modular for the Masses

The SYSTEM-1m takes the guesswork out of getting into modular with great sounds and the freedom to experiment right out of the box. The fully self-contained module can be placed in a rack or on a table and can be powered by a standard AC adaptor. And it can be played from any standard MIDI keyboard or receive MIDI messages from your DAW – just like you’d expect. In addition to functioning as a rackmount or tabletop unit, the SYSTEM-1m can be mounted in a standard Eurorack case and can be powered via integrated case power with the included adapter cable. Its versatile synth architecture integrates beautifully with existing modular setups - or it can be the heart of a burgeoning modular synthesizer rig.

A Collection of Classics

The SYSTEM-1m is a stunningly powerful instrument based on our more than 40 years of experience in designing synthesizers. It’s capable of an astonishing range of synth tones, from glistening arps to thunderous basses. But we’re also known for our lineage of iconic vintage instruments, sought after by musicians the world over. And this is why we developed PLUG-OUT technology. PLUG-OUT synthesizers use our Analog Circuit Behavior technology to perfectly replicate some of our most revered classics. They work like regular VST or AU compatible plugins in a DAW, with the SYSTEM-1m’s array of high-resolution knobs and sliders creating an elegant, one-to-one control surface that works seamlessly.

All These Worlds Are Yours

While it provides a huge amount of synthesis power on its own, interconnecting the SYSTEM-1m with other modular gear creates a vast range of sonic possibilities. Its impressive oscillator section, sweet filters and snappy envelopes are sure to be welcome in any modular setup, no matter how big or small. But it’s the SYSTEM-1m’s combination of CV/Gate modularity, PLUG-OUT, and DAW integration that takes things into completely uncharted territory. For example, load the SH-101 PLUG-OUT into the SYSTEM-1m and you essentially have a hardware SH-101 with modular capabilities - something that has never existed before. The potential is staggering.
