GR700 Roland


What can I say: Strange mysterious, difficult to play, collectors item.

Very nice craftsmanship from Roland

The GR-700 is a stomp-box guitar synth with the same synth engine as the JX-3P. The G-707 is the flashy guitar controller which connects to the 700 via 24 pin cable. On the 707 guitar are knobs for the cut-off edit and LFO modulation! So now you can play synth sounds with the guitar instead of a keyboard. Sound-wise it's a pretty good synth. You will need the PG-200 programmer if you want to edit patches more easily. Recall patches by stomping on the foot pedals.

The GR-700 is a six voice polyphonic with two DCO's per voice which means analog oscillators and sounds with digital stability and control. The typical assortment of a resonant lowpass filter, ADSR envelope, LFO and oscillator sections are here with easy and straight-forward programming. The GR-700 and G-707 are used by Cirrus, Tim Skold with MDFMK, Amir Derakh of Orgy, Charlie Singleton of Cameo, T.G.Noyes, King Crimson, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Andy Summers of the Police and Pierre Schwartz from Jays.
