Roland and Studio Electronics join forces for SE-02 analog Boutique synth

Out later this year...

Roland's Boutique range of synths is the home of digital versions of Roland's classic machines, including the Juno 106, TR-909 and TB-303.

The SE-02 is the first in a series that has been made alongside analogue manufacturer Studio Electronics, who are behind the revered MidiMini, SE-1, ATC-1, Omega 8, CODE 8, Boomstar, and Tonestar

Instead of using analogue modelling technology — which has been found in Roland's previous Boutique and Aira synths — the SE-02 features actual real circuits instead.

Watch the trailer below which details Roland's and Studio Electronic's unique collaboration and then check out the new synth in action, too.

It's been a busy week for Roland who were on hand at Sonar-D showing off a full suit of Aira synths at the Barcelona-based festival last weekend. 

The SE-02 is expected to go sale later this year and will cost just $499.99.
