Here are a few challenges:

Watch the video for Spandau Ballet's 'To Cut A Long Story Short' and see if you can spot the Roland MRS-2 Promars (its the only Synth!).

If you own a working MRS-2 Promars see if you can create the sawtooth lead, nasty sub-oscillator sound and the single note chord in 'To Cut A Long Story Short' by Spandau Ballet.

Submitt a review or comment if you complete these challenges and i will share some MRS-2 Promars Knowlege (I own one in Mint Condition).

The Promars is a must have Monophonic Analogue Synth from the late 70s and early 80s. If you are a Keyboardist/Synthesist in an 80s tribute band go out and buy a Promars before its price shoots up. This Analogue Synth has a very deep, nasty growl sound and sounds like a System 100M Modular Synth. The thing the Promars definatly doesnt lack is power, its going to blow your workstation to hell (where it belongs).

The Promars is not a classic Analogue Synth but who gives a damn. The Promars is commonly described as a Monophonic Jupiter-4 without the arp which is fair but the Promars is a lot more powerful and fatter sounding than its big brother. The Promars is the best portable Synth out there for creating Rolands nasty Modular System sounds (because it has the same VCOs). With its amazing Sub-Oscillator switched off the Promars sounds thin like a SH-09 and with its Sub-Oscillator turned on sounds like the System 100M Modular Synth. With the Sub-Oscillator turned on the Promars has a very deep, nasty growl sound which makes it perfect for stuff like early Depeche Mode tracks.

If you are forming a Depeche Mode, Spandau Ballet, Human League tribute band go out and get a Promars but get one quick because thier price is increasing fast.

About £235 would get you a Promars in terrible condition with a dead battery and broken sliders, Expect to pay up to £450 or £500 for a Promars in Perfect Condition (like mine).

Overall, the Promars is a kick ass Monophonic Analogue Synth from the late 70s and early 80s.The Promars is a must have Monophonic Analogue Synth and an essential piece of kit for an 80s tribute band.

the Promars is an enhanced monophonic version of the Jupiter4 , beautiful bass and lead sounds! It gains the second(hidden?)VCO(!!!) , for great detuned leads and much more powerful bass sounds,and loose the "enseble" and the arpeggiator. the sounds and the layout are very similar to the older SHs(09-2-1) and the system 100 (the first model,not the M). It 's well equipped:2VCO + SUB + noise + hp & reso LP with ENV + Amp ENV + a versatile LFO . The timbre is warm , punchy & armonic . SH101 , compared to the Promars , sounds a bit plastic like and can't match the power and the punch of this beauty (but it's however a great synth!!). it can make even wonderful electronic drums & percussive sounds. Really an unknown powerful beast.

it can't get less than 5
