Nick Reinhart of Tera Melos, Disheveled Cuss, and Undo K From Hot joins us on WASTOIDS for a STRANGE GEAR discussion about his Roland GR-700 guitar synth and share some of its wild sounds. Dive into the history of Steve Carnelli, who used it to create music and sound effects for Hanna-Barbera cartoons, and learn how it passed from Alessandro Cortini of Nine Inch Nails to Nick.

Nick Reinhart and his GR-700.

From Wayne Scott Joness’ Vintage Roland Guitar Synth Resource: “The GR-700 is classic Roland 1980s analog synthesizer technology. Released in late 1984, the GR-700 is the pinnacle of early Roland guitar synthesizer design. The distinctive and futuristic GR-700 features both a digital CPU for guitar tracking and a warm, fat hybrid digital/analog synthesizer engine for lush sounds.” Read more.
