    Roland SH-1Published on 11/01/06 at 12:15

    Level features I let you discover by clicking on the image, everything is there.
    But what about except that it is comprehensive for the time, a "little" synth.
    Some might find the lack of an arpeggiator or other but no, it is to miss.

    UTILIZATION

    A number of Roland synths of the time this one donct (1978 here) operate by 15v at the gate so choose your interface midi / cv office, it must be able to provide.

    This is an analog pure butter, no mysteries everything is under your fingers, tip top!
    There's a nice manual with illustrated examples of kitsch sounds good, it is found on the net.

    This type of synth that I would not hesitate to take every day in concert, it's solid.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is very good, how did he would not with a resonant low pass filter + a hi-pass as well as its auto-adjustable bend, the random delay and the LFO, the knob and fader corresponding a mixer, a white noise pink noise + also please?
    Despite its low oscillator alone are powerful, full, round.
    Thank you to suboscillateur adjustable.

    The filter is nice, a little dirty but in audio as it should, though! Like many there is a 24 dB loss level in the resonance amount.

    You want a autowah to filter your guitar or percussion loops, your voice?
    He knows how ... quiet: audio envelope follower with adjustable. (+ Fader input level sensitivity ... Waah Byzantium this "not so small" mono after all.)
    I was a fan of the pulse width (adjustable in three ways) that sounded FAT!
    Also the attack of the envelope is fast (2 covers LFO modulation), that you ask for?

    I could find a more elegant word, but not ... this synth is couillu!
    With the hi-pass, however, the fine is his field, is not it beautiful?

    It is unknown from the SH101, which made him a card later.
    It is rare or very rare in our country but still it is more interesting to me in his / synthesis than the 101.

    He has quite a place in a modern set.
    His sound enough to provide for them some VA or digital I know (keyboard, waldorf, korg) in some areas.

    I recorded some sounds if you want to hear, there are waves raw. WAV sampler also: http://digitalementconverti.free.fr/demos 20synth%%% e9s/Roland 20SH1 /

    OVERALL OPINION

    I had some analog synths, digital and VA, I must say I am more sensitive to the sound of old analog grandpa (for contemporary music, of course!), So it suited me very well.
    I sold shortly after for unknown reasons (I regret a little. Sniff! It's mine on the picture).

    Consider if you are considering buying a SH101 example, it is not more expensive or less, better construction, more powerful and original.

    I do not redeem it, not because it is not good, however.
    I just changed my approach to music.

    Very good for low fat good

    It is full of buttons and sliders out of sight, the amateur ergonomic analog enjoy. it gives the creative desire to see all these things to touch!

    CV / GATE IN and OUT, that offered little synths.

    my serial number (late model) would imply that I have a filter different from those produced in a first time.

    UTILIZATION

    Edition of its "on Roland's 70". Very cool mix the audio CSO / SUBOSC / NOISE / EXT.SIGN, we can achieve a lot of textures with it.

    The sliders do not have a very fine tactile response, they are downright cheap and very accurate. The rotary knobs are doing much better, plus they have a charming vintage look pretty cute ...

    SOUNDS

    The sound of the oscillator is beautiful, though now much fat, especially in the bass, it's easy to sub-bass through the sub-oscillator that can mix with the main oscillator. On this side it has nothing to envy to a minimoog (if not an oscillator more!)

    As against the filter (with the serial number) is less enticing self-oscillation, it gets loud and hard to control. Echoing a little more moderate one arrives to make a "liquid" and "acid" quite successful with a good terrain and good meaty material well.
    But above all without any resonance in the bass synth that explodes, you get a punch in the stomach feeling greasy power worthy of a MS-20, a Minimoog or Arp Odyssey.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Nice to play the keyboard by controlling expanders analog CV / Gate.
    Bassline oriented, but very complete. Will also be a saw-tooth "cheesy" high-pitched (gangsta style hip hop).

    More presence and power that a SH-101, wilder, too.

    I do not regret it, it provides good musical emotions.
