Roland GR-700 / G-707

Roland GR-700 Image

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, and Andy Summers of the Police.

Hi Doug, I read you want to sell the old 1984 Roland GR-700 electric guitar synthesizer. I have a Roland GR-33, not as exciting as the old GR-700, but unlike the old GR-700 it never crashed. I played the GR-700 back in 1984 when it was first released, and unfortunately for every of my concerts it did let me down, never worked properly at the sound checks and I never risked to play it live on stage, but I did play it a lot in my home music recording studio.
