Based On The Roland SH-101

The Roland SH-01A Sound Module is the latest addition to the Roland Boutique range, providing a faithful recreation of the now classic SH-101 synthesizer. The SH-01A recreates the monophonic powerhouse in a compact and highly portable module unit. The SH-101 Synthesizer was one of the most iconic analog synths from the 80s. It delivered a unique and powerful sound that Roland have recreated in immense detail, keeping faithful to the oscillator, filter and envelope behaviours with extreme accuracy. The original was used to create some of the most powerful sounds heard in the music industry from fat basslines to crunchy leads and innovative sound FX.

Monophonic & Polyphonic Modes

This faithful recreation uses Roland’s Analog Circuit Behaviour technology to achieve the same sonic details and behaviours of the original with extreme accuracy. The result is a modern-day powerhouse that can be taken with you anywhere you go, ideal for live performers who want a touch of the vintage sound within their performance. The same sound and tones have been recreated to bring it the forefront of the synthesis world once again. The most unique update to the design is the ability to switch between Mono and Polyphonic modes. In Mono Mode, the SH-01A acts virtually the same as the original for versatile sound creation capabilities. The Polyphonic mode allows you to play four notes simultaneously, ideal for creating chords and pads and other multi-note sounds. The most unique feature is the Unison mode which allows you to layer four voices together, creating powerful sounds on the fly.

Step Sequencer & Memory Locations

One of the most useful features incorporated into the new design is the onboard 100-step sequencer. The 100-step sequencer was found on the original module, but now features the ability to save and recall 64 sequence patterns for added versatility. The step sequencer can be used to create complex rhythms and patterns on the fly, allowing you to adjust your parameters with ease thanks to the precision analog controls. As well as the sequencer memory, the SH-01A also includes 64 patch memories for storing sounds you have created, as well as tweaked sounds from the original bank.

Compact Design & Connectivity

The Roland SH-101 Synth Module is highly compact and portable, making it ideal for live performances. The compact design will easily fit within a backpack, allowing you to transport your module with ease. It also features a built-in speaker for monitoring sound on the go. The module can run on either USB bus power or can be powered by batteries for ultimate portability. Additionally, you can combine the unit with the optional K-25m Keyboard unit to create an all-in-one synthesizer with 25 velocity-sensitive keys.
