Since its release, the SYSTEM-1 has received worldwide acclaim for its ability to dish out an astonishing array of synth tones, from vintage to modern. Spend a little time with its intuitive controls and you’ll quickly appreciate the ability to dial-up all manner of instantly usable sounds that sit perfectly in a mix. Thumping basses, glistening arps, warm pads, plucked synths, lo-fi effects. We’re talking desert island synth.
At its heart is our Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, which we use to carefully analyze the structure and behavior of analog circuits and then faithfully recreate them down to the finest details. This technology fills the SYSTEM-1, creating a fusion of beautifully classic and utterly modern synth tones that live and breathe.
The SYSTEM-1’s advanced arpeggiator with its Scatter capability gives it unprecedented versatility and playability. Six arpeggio types with six step settings combine with variable Scatter type and depth to create a seemingly infinite selection of patterns. Smoothly controllable, you can even arpeggiate synth parameters like cutoff and resonance, in addition to notes.
Hardware. Meet Software.
The SYSTEM-1 Software Synthesizer is a must-have if you own the SYSTEM-1 or SYSTEM-1m hardware. Seamless, bi-directional communication between the hardware and software provides complete editor/librarian functionality and an automatic, one-to-one hardware control interface that just works.
