Roland SE-02 Analog Synthesizer

When Roland and Studio Electronics announced they were joining forces and collaborating on a synthesizer, the music world took notice. Their first collaborative instrument is the SE-02, a fully analog monophonic synth in Roland's scaled-down Boutique format. The first analog synth in the Boutique Series, the small-format SE-02 packs a big punch with three fully-analog VCOs, a 16-step sequencer and a whole lot more.

We're impressed with the results of Roland and Studio Electronics partnership and think you will be too. Read on to learn more about the SE-02!

Modern Synth, Classic Sounds

Turn a few knobs on the SE-02 and you'll be able to nail just about any iconic synth tone you can think of. That's because its true analog voltage-controlled oscillators each offer six waveforms for rich tone crafting that retains all the warmth of classic synths.

One thing you won't miss from the synths of yesterday: temperature affecting your tone and time to tune. The SE-02's VCOs are temperature-stabilized, and tuning happens instantly upon startup.

The SE-02 was designed with a knob-per-function control panel, giving users a simple, intuitive interface with absolutely no menu-diving. All of this makes editing sounds much easier, whether you're doing it on the fly during a live show, tweaking one of the 384 factory presets, or crafting your own to add in any of 128 user preset slots.

Right in Sequence

Roland made their name on sequencers found in their original drum machines and synths, so of course they developed a great one for the SE-02. The 16-step sequencer is extremely flexible, giving you access to the direction, scale, shuffle and first and last steps of the sequence on the fly! Storage space is vast -- with room for 128 preset sequences and 16 songs. In keeping with the SE-02's modern capabilities, the sequencer can be tempo-synced via MIDI, USB or a trigger device, meaning you won't have to worry about your SE-02 playing nice with your contemporary beat-making gear.

A Powerful Partnership

The SE-02 is the first product to come from a partnership between Roland and Studio Electronics, as part of the Boutique Designer Series. Studio Electronics has made synthesizers by hand in the USA since 1988, and their SE-1 has hallowed status among synth lovers as the first programmable monophonic synthesizer.

Tasked with creating a feature set for the synth, Studio Electronics has armed the SE-02 with a discreet ladder filter and a dual-gain stage amplifier section that gets nasty enough to appease even the heaviest industrial bands. With 3 XMod types and Feedback, the SE-02 delivers the unique sound coloring and ultra-aggressive textures you need to craft sick synth sounds.

Recommended Accessories

Already have a MIDI controller keyboard you dig? Fit the SE-02 into your rig with Roland's DK-01 dock, with its integrated tilt stand to give you access to all the SE-02's knobs.

Need a new controller? Roland's K-25M Boutique USB MIDI keyboard is the ideal controller for your SE-02, as it fits perfectly in the upper slot. The 25 mini-keys and tilt-back design let you get your controls just where you want them.

If you're building a Boutique army, your next logical step would be the TR-09 Boutique Rhythm Composer. This mini version of the classic drum machine also fits in the K-25M, and syncs in tempo with your SE-02 via MIDI!

And when you're on the go, you'll want to store your SE-02 in the official Roland Boutique gig bag! This zippered bag fits all Boutique series synths.
