this sounds very good to me.
First analog synth in boutique form factor.
Sounds like a perfect buddy for an A4:
CV/GATE, Compact , Memory, Internal sequencer for synth parameters…
Plus, SE is very solid company for fat analog sounds.
Sounds nice in the vids. Whats the RRP? Wonder how well the sequencer p-locks have been implemented? Seems like the sequencer is a lot more serious/useful than other boutiques etc.
And the option to chain a few boxes for poly might be pretty tempting…
Wonder what that’ll translate to in today’s (un-)united kingdom…
Funny, I didn’t expect Roland to release a Minimoog clone.
£450 to £500 i guess…
£399 if we’re very lucky.
nice to see proper power input, midi in/outs , parameter locks on steps.
£499 RRP surely.
Sounds nice but I can’t stand mini jacks!
Lol, what’s wrong with mini jacks? You can buy decent quality ones so it’s basically no different Guess maybe sliiiightly less sturdy maybe but never bothered me at all on my Ms20 mini or Op1…
I dunno ha ha! It’s one of those weird things that sets me off. My mpc live has a mini Jack for headphones. Annoys the hell out of me!
about fkn time.
roland - “SE have a long tradition of making analog synthesizers”… yea so did you ye fkn dopes.
sounds really good tho. hats off SE
Haha, yeah I kind of get it before my Ms20 and buying a decent cable it seemed like a kind of ‘toyish’ space/cost-cutting thing to use mini-jacks (volcas/ipads/monotron etc) but I don’t even notice it any more
Hahaha. They’ve forgotten how to remember Shame they have to go outside to get things done but nice to see something from them that looks pretty spot on (without re-hashing their past) for a change. Now they should team up with their old selves and bring out a v-synth/SP hybrid groovebox/synth…
beautiful sounding demos… looks dope!
absolutely. You can use the excellent sequencer on the A4 but then actually have a proper analogue synth engine that doesn’t sound like it’s being strained through a woollen sock.

Sounds really nice and vintage - kinda like a bit of sh2 and system 100 action.
You could get a lot of synth mileage with the system 1m, system 100 plug out, and the se2.
I was looking at getting 0-coast but this might have stolen its spot.
Edit; I know they’re not same synthesis but presets and buttery bass…
It’s a decent amount of synth, and just the right price point for people with disposable incomes to impulse buy them and then later realize it’s kind of a late-to-market generic thing. Kind of perfect B/S/T fodder until the next sort of cool thing is churned out.
its nice to have usb audio too …nice clean signal into ableton.
i think its a good box, interesting to see how it competes with recent £500 boxes.
i think the 0-coast is very different though… and its all mini jacks!.
