MRS-2, Roland @ 24 January 2016, Comments Off on Roland ProMars MRS-2

pro_mars “Hallo zusammen!

Ihr bietet auf einen “Promars Compuphonic MRS 2” Analogsynthesizer der Firma Roland. Der Synthesizer ist gebraucht und wurde von mir ca. 1998 erstanden (Baujahr “Vintage Synth Explorer 1979 – 1982 http://www.vintagesynth.com/roland/promars.php) und steht seitdem in meinem Nichtraucher-Haushalt.

Ich bin leider kein (Vinatag-)Synthesizer Expert, glaube aber, dass der Synthesizer für sein Alter in sehr gutem Zustand ist. Alle Regler, Potis und die Speicher-Funktion funktionieren.

Sooweit ich das beurteilen kann, ist der Synthesizer im Originalzustand, lediglich der der original “VCO-2 A-Tune-Off-B-Tune”-Schalter (zu sehen auf dem fünften Bild unten in der Mitte) war abgebrochen und wurde von mir durch ein original Ersatzteil ausgetauscht.

Der ersetzte Schalter war Teil eines Reperatur-Kits dem auch eine Batterie beilag. Ob diese für den ProMars ist oder für das Schwestermodell Jupiter-4 ist mir leider nicht bekannt.

Der Synthesizer ist für heutige Verhältnisse extrem massiv und groß (Breite ca. 77 cm, Tiefe 40 cm & Höhe 17 cm), dies ist auch der Grund warum ich mich schweren Hezens vom ihm trenne: Ich brauch’ den Platz :-(” Link

“Ein echter Vintage-Synthi ! Keine mehr oder weniger gut gelungene programmierte VSTi-Adaption. Ich trenne mich nach gut 30 Jahren von meinem Synthi. Andere Projekte stehen einfach im Vordergrund. Der Synthi ist voll funktionsfähig und sofort spielbar. Einzig der Zahn der Zeit hat ein paar Spuren hinterlassen. So sind die echtholz-furnierten (!) Seitenteile leicht zerkratzt bzw. an einer Stelle ist das Furnier beschädigt (s.Bild). Der Tuning-Regler bräuchte mal etwas Reinigung. Der kratzt leicht. Ein paar mal hin und her drehen und es klappt wieder mit der Stimmung. Die Stimmung (ich meine die eigene ;-)) steigt sofort beim spielen. Was da ‘rauszuholen ist zeigen die wirklich gut gelungenen Seiten ”

“This rare ProMars MRS2 was overhauled by my Analog Synth Tech last week. He’s been my tech for 15 years and services all my many rare analog gems. This ProMars is working as it should nd is ready to give it’s new owner years of amazing synth textures. ALL buttons, keys, sliders and knobs work as they should. The keybed feels and triggers great. The Oscilliators, filters and Noise Generator were calibrated to spec. It Plays and sounds as it should! Please see pics as it has a few scratches and marks, which do NOT effect playability.” Link

nun ja – viele der einstellregler kratzen oder klemmen leicht und der korpus sieht auch nicht so toll aus.

“ROLAND MRS-2 Promars vintage Analogsynthesizer in allerfeinstem Zustand!

Like new! Wie neu ist dieser vielseitige analoge Synthesizer aus den 1970er/80er Jahren. Er ist die monophone Ausführung des legendären Jupiter 4. Hat aber im Gegensatz zum JU4 2 VCOs pro Stimme. Der JU4 hat nur einen VCO pro Stimme. Vielseitige Modulationsmöglichkeiten, eigene Filter Envelope und ein zusätzlicher Suboszillator machen den Synthi zu einer ergiebigen Quelle für Pads ebenso wie für abgefahrene Technosounds und schräge Tonexperimente gleichermassen! Abgrundtiefe Bässe mit Rütteleffekt für alles im näheren Umfeld sind kein Problem mit diesem geilen Roland Filter das hier verbaut ist. Übrigens ähnlich zu meinem Juno 106 der ebenfalls ein echt scharfes Roland Filter mit eigenem Charakter besitzt. Hier nun für Jäger und Sammler zum fairen Preis von 1.280,- EUR.

Zustand: Neuwertig, absolut! Siehe Bilder. Leider aber die Pufferbatterie hinüber. Wurde von mir ausgebaut bevor ernsthaft was passiert. Sie ist noch vorhanden wegen dem Trägerblech und dem Kabel/Stecker. Sie muss aber ersetzt werden. Die Presets speichern zwar die Einstellungen, gehen aber im Lauf der zeit dann doch verloren. Die Werkspresets bleiben hiervon unberührt und sind permanent vorhanden.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Beautiful Vintage Roland PROMARS MRS-2 analog synthesizer.
Among Roland’s first programmable synthesizers, it is a beautiful snapshot of a bygone era where memory was a miracle of technology.

This unit is in very good shape, aside from a few areas on the laminate wood panels where the “finish” has been worn off.

Another small but important detail is one of the slider caps is missing. (The underlying slider works just fine).

NOTE : Last but not least,(and I hope that it may be due to my my ignorance and i’m simply not engaging it correctly), the last slider in the VCA, the RELEASE (R) slider seems not to have any effect on the sound. That is why I am taking it to my tech guy. Im not sure if its not functioning, or if its me not understanding its use. I suspect its not working. I will give an update on that topic after tomorrow.

There are come scratches on the metal casing but nothing significant. As you can see from the pics, its very clean and well kept. It plugs in to AC117v. No converter needed in the US.

I have never tested the CV (The Promars is well endowed with CV and Gate inputs and outputs, and it even offers a modulation CV input for vibrato, filter sweeps and so on) but I have a strong feeling that it works, as everything on this synth works very nicely, especially considering its age (32 years old!).” Auction ended.

“Hi, you’re looking at a beautiful and rare, 1979 Roland ProMars Compuphonic MRS-2 monophonic analogue synthesiser. It is fully serviced, calibrated and comes with a new memory battery installed. It sounds absolutely stunning. Every function works correctly, no scratchy pots or anything else and it plays perfectly in tune with minimal warm up time.

This is an original UK/Euro Promars so it runs on 240/220 Volts.

This is, in my opinion, one of the finest sounding vintage monosynths ever made.

It is basically a monophonic Jupiter 4 but with one very important extra feature; it has a second (tunable) VCO! This obviously enhances the the sound massively. It gives the Promars a huge sound, and a very impressive feature set. Another great feature is that it has patch memory! This is unusual on a vintage monosynth, and not seen on any other vintage Roland mono. You also get two filters, High and resonant Low pass and an amazing LFO that runs well into the audio spectrum!

A very well laid out set of knobs, sliders and edit controls give you the power to create some really amazing sounds.

Two individual VCO oscillators + SUB Oscillator that can be de-tuned, a super nice High Pass and Low Pass VCF filters with its own ADSR, a VCA envelope section, a great LFO and a pitch/mod wheel at can effect the LFO, VCF or VCA. It even has a noise generator. CV gate in and out, Headphone socket..

It is interesting to note that as this shares the same processor as the Jupiter 4, installation of the Jupiter 4 Io midi kit is possible, giving you MIDI and a whole host of other enhancements.

Superb physical condition, ultra rare service manual included. Fully working and professionally serviced. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

All functions, keys, pots, have been totally cleaned and treated for good contact. Most important, the inside of the Promars everything looks splendid. This Promars has been completely serviced by Marc Marc Amsterdam who services all analogue gear I sell. The battery backup has been replaced by a new one, all electrolyctic capacitators are replaced by new ones, it has been thoroughly cleaned, etc. etc. (for more info check the service certificate next to the pictures).

mrs2_1 “Why buy a MRS2 that will need a service -here is a near mint condition Roland ProMars MRS2 Analog Synth Vintage with Roland factory hard case–Looks very similar to Jupiter 4 but it is a monophonic and sounds entirely different to JP4 because of second VCO and detune option and extra freq knob
The other advantage of MRS2 over JP4 is the CV/Gate in and out sockets and thus the ability to sequence with a midi to cv device I have been using a Kenton Pro Solo 2 model –(not included)

The Promars/MRS2 is also the first programable Roland Synth and quite rare I think a really good monophonic will always beat any poly for bass and sequencing –MRS2 sounds great with VCO2 detuned and sub oscillator on

Please note this is the 100 Volt AC Japan model and has been restored for long life . The work involved new caps/voltage regulators and memory chip, backup battery etc -looks and plays like a new machine.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay. mrs2-2
