Roland SH-01A  Boutique Series Desktop Synthesizer Module 

The SH-01A brings back the sound and circuitry of the legendary Roland SH-101 in a portable, ultra-useable unit. Roland’s Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology models the performance (and yes, even the quirks) of all the 101’s circuits and components, and adds 4-voice performance and updated 64-pattern sequencer to improve on the original.

Fans loved the SH-101’s characteristic tone and simple 1-VCO → 1-VCF → 1-VCA → 1-LFO structure. Those sounds are back—but even better, with new polyphonic capabilities and performance features. On top of the classic Mono mode, you can stack 4 voices in Unison mode to add punch to  bass and lead lines, or use the Chord mode to layer 4 notes (which can be shifted up and down in semi-tone intervals). Poly mode lets you play 4 notes simultaneously, for pads and chords.

The SH-01A’s sequencer lets you save and access 64 sequence patterns, or use  it to control your modular rig, hardware synthesizers, and software plugins via CV/Gate, MIDI and USB. 

The SH-01A also has 64 writeable patches that can serve as presets or quick starting points to create entirely new sounds. Like the original, the boutique series unit is solidly built with sturdy knobs, metal-shaft sliders, and solid silver buttons. 

The unit can be mounted to the optional K-25m Keyboard Unit (not included), for use as a compact, all-in-one synth with 25 velocity-sensitive keys. Several tilt options allow easy viewing in any position or lighting. And for on-the-go use, it has a built-in speaker and can run on batteries.
