Classic tone that’s still very cool!

Description

Historic Tone

Looking for that awesome synth tone from the great classic albums and songs from the 70’s and 80’s?

The Roland RS-202 is the one that started many of the cool and desirable tones that are still used today.roland strings 202 synth

It’s a string and brass synthesizer released in 1976. It had two new features: a user-controlled delay for the vibrato, and an Ensemble/Chorus effect (that would be seen on dozens of future Roland analog synths for years, including the Junos and Jupiters).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fully Polyphonic

It is fully polyphonic, meaning multiple keys can be played simultaneously.

The keyboard is permanently split into two separate sections, the lower 2 octaves and the upper 3 octaves. Each section has it’s own set of identical controls. These include three white On/Off buttons for each of the three sound presets. This means you can assign any sound to each section, and any combination.

The RS-202 is a truly vintage and classic machine. Historically, it launched Roland’s signature Ensemble effect. It also sounded fantastic – with or without the ensemble effect engaged. It’s been used by Tony Banks, Rod Argent, Tomita, Nick Magnus, Jethro Tull, Camel, and Magnum.
