|Type / Tags|
An emulation of the features and structure of the 'standard' 5-module configuration of the Roland System 100M, coupled with a CATstick joystick controller (here implemented as an X/Y pad). The CATstick also contained two additional LFOs.
Several of the modules have extra features added. Patching is by drop-downs at each input. Two Mults provided in the form of emulations of u-he's Multiplexes.
- 2VCO (with additional waveforms and FM).
- 2VCF (CS-80 style HP VCF in series with LP VCF).
- 2VCA (with CS-80-style sine mixers).
- 2ENV-LFO (EGs have adjustable expo curve, extendable times and onset delay.
- Ring-Noise S&H LFO.

Many, many thanks to 'bbuese' on the DSPR forum for designing the 'spring-action' for the stick - unlike typical X/Y pads, the CATstick returned to the center/zero-output position when it was released. Here one has the option of spring-loaded 'stick' or normal X/Y pad operation.
This does NOT emulate or model the actual sound of a Roland, or any other vintage hardware synth, just borrows from the control design, layout and panel design of the System 100M and the CATstick.
32-bit, so will require jBridge, etc., (or a DAW that will bridge) for use on 64-bit systems.
The link on the website is to a Sync.com folder that also contains the .osm Synthmaker source 'schematics', so anyone with SM, or it's successor Flowstone, can alter it to suit. It's hoped that anyone who makes significant improvements will share the result with everyone.
As this was originally built for my own use only, there are no presets included; I wanted to come at the instrument anew each time, as one did with vintage analog hardware.
