The Promars is close to the SH-09 in sound and features. Don't be fooled by it's weight and appearence, this is not a Jupiter 4. Only one voice and no arp. It makes phat basses and nice FX, and can do nice Solos, too. It doesn't have an analog in, like the SH-09, but what it does have is 8 memorypatches for storing your own sounds, and a VCF + a VCA envelope, in addition to 10 rather weedy factory presets. It's as simple as this really: if you like the Sh-09, you'll like this one, too. Modern machines just can't make these kinda ol' basses.

A jupiter 4 monophonic? No, is more fatter and have 2 oscillator ( one control for both, only detune control for a osc2 ), and can make good bass, lead and fx sound. Have some memory ( good for a 1979 synth) and have a good vintage look...

Don't pass by one of these forgetten beasts without having a sniff!!!, Must have the longest name for a Synth known to man!! The Roland Promars Compuphonic MRS-2. Says it all - looks cool!! way better than my Grey SH101. Get one while you can!! What I would like to see is someone out there come up with a way of controlling the 2nd Osc!! external gizmo of some sort maybe? Surley there is an eggbert out there that can modify this!!! can easily be got at by undoing the 4 screws on the top panel which opens up on its hinges. Picked mine up for £150sterling. G gggggo now!! Ggget it!! NNOW!!!! Bargain!!!Trust me!!

This monster is great for sampling. While sampleing, I listen to a metronome atempo, then "ride" the mode wheel to open and close the filters/vco/lfo. Some times I remove the internal batteries to make the "compu-memory" forget it's patches. When played back there's some rad FX, very random and samplable. My next experiment is to build/find a MIDI to cv converter. If I'm succsessfull, I'm hard wire into the vco, vcf, and vce. I believe the answer lies in hot-wiring old synth boards.
