Roland Saturn 09

Roland Saturn 09 Image

The Saturn 09 is an analog organ synthesizer (similar to the RS-09 which added a string sound). Probably not the best Organ synth, but with imagination, the Saturn is capable of creating some cool sounds for techno/ambient music, ie: low drone organ bass tones or blips. There is very little demand for this instrument so they can be found for under $100, and they will add a nice flavor to any modern analog-electronic keyboard studio. It has been used by Newcleus and is probably hidden among the rigs of a few other electro-artists!

Got one here in Japan off the Yahoo Auction, in great shape & with the original leather (fake?) carrying case. At first glance, maybe it doesn't look like much is possible, but it was easy to coax some neat sounds out of it. Obviously, it can do the organ thing, but also simple strings, bass, and unusual sounds. Works very well with my SVC-350 vocoder, although I wish it went one more octave lower. My only complaints: only 2 envelope types (no attack control), & no filter (although there is a brightness slider). Worth cracking open as it's easy to clean up bad/old soldering etc. (I did this).
