`spv355 “Roland PVS-355 is a true Pitch to Voltage synthesizer with full Controlled Voltage inputs and effects sends. It’s dual purpose allows you to use a guitar or voice or other monophonic pitched instruments as an input or as a stand alone synthesizer or an expander for a Eurorack synthesizer system. The synth creates an envelope and pitch to follow the input and the two signals can then be mixed. Dual Oscillators PLUS Sub Osc, VCA, VCF, envelope generator, envelope follower and Portamento.
Includes original Owners manual and schematics.” Link

“Exakt dieses Gerät wurde in der April Ausgabe von Sound & Recording getestet und vorgestellt. Bei Bedarf kann ich das Pdf des Artikels zusenden.

Hier ein Zitat zum Sound:

Einfacher, aber wunderbar kraftvoller Grund- klang mit solidem Bassfundament − so könnte man die Eigenschaften des SPV-355 knapp

zusammenfassen. Das Filter macht einen guten Job und greift beherzt ins Frequenz- spektrum ein; die Resonanz reicht bis zur Eigenschwingung. Etwas schade ist lediglich der Umstand, dass der Synth nicht über einen Noise-Generator und einen LFO verfügt; da- her bleibt das Klangspektrum etwas einge- schränkt. Nichtsdestoweniger sind (abhängig vom Eingangsmaterial) interessante Solo- synth-Exkursionen und Glitch-Patterns (z. B. bei Drumloops als Eingangssignal) machbar. Mit der externen CV/Gate-Steuerung lassen sich auch schöne Acid-artige Sequenzen generieren.” Link

“You are looking at a Roland SPV-3455 P/V Synthesizer from 1979 or so.. This unit is in excellent shape with a few minor marks on the box here and there.. It pretty much looks like it was put in the rack back in 1979 and never taken out until yesterday (9/14/2013). All the controls work as they should. It looks better in hand than in my photos. I will include a manual that I downloaded off the internet with it.” Link

“Overall, the synth is in excellent working condition.All sliders run smoothly and are crackle free.

Cosmetic condition is very good. The front panel is clean and nearly mark free, with only a couple of minor marks. Rack handles are good with minor wear only. Side and back panels have a little marking. Top panel has a number of fine marks where its has been racked as you would expect but nothing major (no dents, deep scratches).

All knobs, switches, sliders and slider caps are present, original and function correctly.

This is a 100v model so is sold with a step down transformer” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Roland SPV-355 Rare Vintage Analog Synthesizer Pitch to CV

Made in Japan
Serial Number: 850406
Voltage: 110VAC (USA/Japanese plug fitted) Step down transformer required.

Condition: Excellent. Very clean unit, suit collector, no rack rash, very nice face plate. Would be hard to find better. Small area of paint missing on top, see pics (not visible if rack mounted).
100% Functional.

It is really fun for experimenting with, especially when bringing together other synths, drum machines, mics, analog sequencers etc !!! A rare unit. Plenty of info on the net. It is an analog synth which can also convert voice, guitar, monophonic instruments, other synths, etc into a CV voltage to control its internal synth and can also trigger other external synths at the same time, making it quite versatile especially with vintage synth setups.” Auction ended.

“ROLAND ANALOG SYNTH SPV-355

Schöner alter analoger Synthesizer aus dem Hause Roland. Er klingt älter & fetter als die SH-101.

Eigendlich ein Gitarren-Synthesizer, d.h. Klampfe rein und der Synthie folgt der Tonhöhe der Gitarre.Man kann natürlich auch einen Drumcomputer, andere Synthesizer, Stimme ,… anlegen , und man erhält sehr abgefahrene Sounds.

Oder man triggert ihn mit einem Sequencer. Dafür hat er hinten CV/Gate in und outs.
Sehr gut für Modular-Synthesizer.

Zusätlich hat er einen CV VCF in , damit wird es richtig gut !!

100Volt Version – ohne Spannungswandler. Läuft auch mit 110V.

Fine working Vintage roland SPV-355 Synthesizer with CV VCF-in mod.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Up for sale my Roland SPV-355 P/V Synthesizer (serial no. 911215). This thing is great! One of the best racksynths I ever had with CV/GATE in and out. I used it in my (non-smoking) homestudio. The synthesizer is in very good condition! Optical it is like new. You won’t find any scratch on the panel. Only on the bottom there are some minor scratches. Is is in original condition as you can see on the photo’s. Three sliders will crackle a little bit when you move them, but overall it’s in good working order. ” Auction ended.

“Today I am auctioning off my brilliant Roland SPV-355 rackmount monophonic analog synth. It’s hard to describe it’s sound, although one could compare it to the early versions of the Jupiter 4 and the Promars. It uses discrete VCOs and the early SH-design filters. If you’re looking for Roland arpeggios, basslines and leads THIS is the synth for you (the envelopes are ridiculously fast). It has a great big thick sound since it uses two vcos in addition to one sub oscillator. It’s a bit modular in nature as you can patch a lot of stuff into the front to control the vcos and the vcf. It has CV/Gate inputs located on the back. You would control this either via another analog synth, midi-to-cv box, or via silent way/volta with your computer. It looks wonderful with a little bit of rack rack around the holes but oddly enough, nearly spotless everywhere else. It works great and sounds even better!

There is one caveat. This synth was made for guitarists to plug into and the synth was intended to track the pitch of the guitar and play along with it. This was a big thing in the late 70’s, and to me kind of goofy. Isn’t the nice thing about guitars the ability to play chords, which this synth and all the other ones designed at the time unable to do? At any rate, this ability doesn’t work (or maybe I don’t know how to use it). It passes audio through the synth but doesn’t track it. I don’t know. I’ve treated it as a rackmount analog synth and cannot guarantee functionality of this strange guitar part of the synth. At any rate, grab this and you’re in 70’s Roland analog synth heaven! Shipping is 25 dollars. Good luck and happy bidding!” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
