Up for sale, a 1980's Roland Saturn 09 SA-09 analog synthesizer in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Crafted in Japan, this vintage synth is geared towards classic organ sounds with 44 keys and an intuitive bank of controls. We've just had this Saturn serviced by our techs here at Mike & Mike's Guitar bar with all knobs, sliders, and contacts cleaned, and all features tested for functionality and viability for stage and studio use.
From left to right on the face of the enclosure, the Power button starts things off, followed by a Volume knob and Tone control slider. Next up is the Modulator section, featuring classic Roland Chorus and Vibrato effects with two modes and a Vibrato Rate dial. The Sound Source section offers four sliders for various footings in true organ fashion, with four distinctively colored Tone Selector buttons. In the Envelope section, the waveform can select between Organ and Percussive, followed by an Accent switch and Sustain section with Timing slider and On switch. A handy Tuning switch rounds out the controls, allowing the player to dial in the perfect pitch.
Outputs include either Stereo or Mono 1/4“ jacks, with a Low, Mid, High switch, and a 1/4“ headphone jack. 1/4“ connections for a Sustain Pedal and Gate out are also available.
Cosmetically, this vintage Saturn is incredibly clean, with pristine graphics, knobs, and switches.
