This pitch synth is a total waste of money. It's rare, I know, but think about it. Just listen to what you are doing with it. It is a SMALL machine. Get a SH 101 for less money and kick ass. This rack mount pancake is a load of ponce. "I got one 'cause you ain't got one". So what it's pants anyway. I lobbed mine into the local river. Just where it belongs. It's worth about £50, not nearly £600. Think about the hype and over the top mad prices for second hand crappy racks. Thge knobs are a nice white colour....

This is because people don't want to let them go. <BR>They are great when used with a vocoder, as your voice can be patched to control the CV of the SPV-355. For another review on this and other vintage Roland gear visit my site above.

I have the SPV335 next to my SVC350 vocoder. Same styling knobs& rack handles. Wot a luvly pair they do make. OK I admit it, Ive gotta be into the aesthetic to truly bond with a piece of gear. And believe me, the SPV-355 looks cool. I speculate that its possibly the most unique looking Roland rack unit of them all. And this is strangely relivant because its usefulness probably gets bolstered by this. The PV synth has an easoteric range of uses... that is, you really have to push the ol imagination hard to coax workably useful music out of this barely tamable beast. Its cool as a percussion effect although it can only do one thing at a time. Highly samplable chunks of transient analog weirdness - suggested by, and/or blended with actual inputed audio. Goddamm! and God bless the seventies. Great as a bass doubler, Vocal strangifier, and fuck-up-anything-o-tron. Definatly not lacking in fatness (I think it shares the same VCo's as a Juno6). Good bottom end (transposable 8 octaves plus sub osc). If this guy sounds thin, like mine did when i bought it, then you need to get the coffee and beer removed from the back of it. Useful too as a dual osc rack mounted monosynth when fed good CV with the unusual aspect of an audio-input tracking filter.Auto wah I guess but with a real filter. Oh by the way, the filter self-oscillates with gusto - not always a roland thing. I like to scare myself by trying to use it subtly on an aux send when live mixing electronic bands or rock fusion. Subtle isnt really its thing but creaming it down with an RE201 tape dly does the trick.
