The Roland System-8 is Roland's latest Plug-Out synth and comes as a full sized 49 note keyboard. System-8 has a massive 3 x oscillator / 8 voice synth engine which really does sound convincing. There's plenty modulation options too. System-8 will support up to three Plug-Out synth modules and here's the best news - the System 8 will come fitted with the Jupiter 8 and Juno 106 fitted as standard - NICE!
