A very simple product from the mid-seventies. Roland rs-202 strings is very easy to use but it is very boring for most people. I know many people i have spoken with is ranking this string-machine in second place after the ARP-stringmachine, but I must warn you. Don¥t expect to much of this. If your an analogue-lover and always been chasing a particular stringsound from a particular album, this might be the answer for you. Maybe you like it also if you have an odd attraction to old synths. Otherwise this is nothing for you. Anyway I like it, but i don¥t love it....

Comments About the Sounds:
There is not much to say. There are two sounds and I always uses the string sounds. In the right context they are quite ok. A shimering analogue sound, often better than juno-106 for instance.
