Roland System 500 vs. Vintage Roland 100m and SH-5 Synthesizers

In this video from YouTuber Alex Ball, we see a heated shootout between the Roland System 500 modular synthesizer, the vintage Roland System 100m (1978), and the Roland SH-5 (1976) synthesizers.

From the video’s description, he explains:

I’ve been leant a Roland System 500 for a video and so the first thing I wanted to try with it was a side-by-side with the System 100m (1978) and SH-5 (1976) as these are two of the heritage synths that inspired it.

The third synth it’s based on is the System 700, but I’m sure you can forgive me for not getting that one in there too!

All-in-all I think the System 500 is excellent, has the Roland family sound and stands up well against the classics that inspired it. Trying to be as impartial as possible, there are a couple of comments I had about it that could be improved which I also mention, but I genuinely think it’s a great sounding and accessible modular synth.

All of these Roland synths featured in the video are all unique in their own ways, and they are all excellent synthesizers. It is interesting to see how the Roland System 500 compares with the original synthesizer that inspired it! You can visit the Alex Ball YouTube channel for more awesome synthesizer shootouts.
