Product Description

Vintage sound in a portable unit with a small footprint, the SE-02 is built solidly with a rugged metal top and quality knobs and switches. A collaborative effort from Roland and Studio Electronics, the SE-02 is the debut product of the new Roland Boutique Designer Series. The SE-02 uses authentic discrete analog circuitry to create a synthesizer with a distinctly vintage sound and vast programming options. With an array of high-quality knobs and switches and a uniquely creative onboard sequencer, the SE-02 delivers massive tone and texture with expressive hands-on control.

Beyond Typical Analog
The SE-02's monophonic synthesizer engine features three voltage-controlled oscillators, a voltage-controlled 24 dB low-pass filter, and a dual gain-stage amplifier. The oscillators have six different kinds of waveforms with the warmth and complex character associated with true analog VCOs. What’s more, these VCOs are temperature stabilized with automatic tuning, so you get all the benefits and none of the downsides.

The SE-02 is big and bold, with thick, rich lows and clear, vibrant highs—exactly what you think of when you imagine classic vintage synth tone. And while the SE-02 can create astonishingly great vintage sounds, it can do so much more. It has three types of cross modulation (XMOD), a ripping filter feedback loop, a tempo-syncing LFO with nine waveforms, envelope sweeping and inverting, oscillator sync, a noise generator, and a tempo-syncing delay.

While it’s a compact “go-anywhere” device, the knobs, switches, and buttons are sturdy and plentiful, giving you a vast palette of sound-shaping capabilities at your fingertips. Everything is hands-on and knob-per-function, with deep control and a logical, intuitive layout. To get started, you can choose from 384 expertly programmed preset sounds that cover a wide range of classic and modern tones. Tweak and modify these sounds or create something completely new, storing your own custom creations in the 128 available user locations.

A More Musical Sequencer
The SE-02 includes a powerful 16-step sequencer to add motion and dimension to your sounds. It can sync to external tempo via MIDI, USB, or trigger input, and per-step gate time, adjustable glide, tempo, and patch number are stored with each sequence. Creative performance features allow you to set shuffle, scale, direction, and first/last steps on the fly. Even synth parameters can be automated by sequencing changes—just press a step and move a control. And despite the SE-02s compact size, the sequencer is fun and intuitive, lending itself to both studio and live usage. You can store 128 sequence patterns and construct 16 songs, each with up to 16 parts.

Modern Flexibility
The SE-02 is built solidly with a rugged metal top and quality knobs and switches. And despite having a control for just about everything, it’s small enough to take just about anywhere. Due to its Roland Boutique format, it fits in our K-25m or DK-01 accessory docks, so you can add an integrated 25-key mini keyboard or have various tilt options for easy access in a variety of live and studio situations.

The SE-02 also features convenient 1/8-inch stereo jacks that reduce cable clutter, plus full-sized, standard MIDI jacks for connecting any kind of keyboard you want or controlling the SE-02 remotely. And as with other Roland Boutique synths, Chain Mode lets you increase the polyphony by connecting two or more SE-02 units together via MIDI.

There are CV inputs for both pitch and filter frequency, as well as trigger in and out, so the SE-02 works great with modular setups and other vintage gear. You can route external audio signals through the filter section, and there’s even USB audio and MIDI capabilities to seamlessly integrate with computer-based setups.

Blown Away!
What is your opinion of this product?
Dont let the small size fool you. This is a full featured synth that will fulfill pretty much any roll. I am still getting to grips with its subtleties and when I think, what if? I haven't been disappointed yet. Yes, its a bit fiddly at times, but well worth the effort of getting a working feel for the front panel, as you can have it to hand, given its small footprint. Output connections are as solid as they can be, give that they are miniature in size. I wouldn't recommend putting them in any scenario where they could be hit, and put a 90 degree connector on the audio out.

Well worth the money.
What is your opinion of this product?
A great little synth, 3 oscillators and filter, and plenty of mods. For the price, the size, and the versatility, the SE-02 is a great purchase. However, due to the filter and the system architecture, it may be great, but not really a Minimoog.

Love it!
What is your opinion of this product?
Sounds great and feels sturdy. I compare its sound to my dotcom modular synth which is impressive considering the size difference. My only small gripes are it runs a little more not than I would expect from a modern piece of gear, the other is the filter steps at full resonance but can be circumvented by using the contour knob or lfo which will not cause stepping. If you want a portable synth that has that American synth tone don't hesitate on this. All functions immediately map to controllers too so it's very compatible and functional
