Put the Fun Back in Synthesis!
If you’re new to synthesizers, meet the most friendly and fun analogue-modelling instrument on the market: the Roland SH-201. If you’re a synth pro, the SH-201 will remind you of why you fell in love with synthesizers in the first place. Simply, the SH-201 is a blast to play! It sounds great too, thanks to such features as Roland’s famous Supersaw waveform, Feedback Oscillator, D Beam, and more. The SH-201 is also equipped with an external input, so you can manipulate your CDs, MP3s, or other external input devices and instruments.
Great Analog-Style Sound
Even though it’s super fun and easy to use, the SH-201 is no toy when it comes to sound. With two beefy analog-modelling oscillators onboard, complete with Roland’s famous Supersaw waveform and resonant filter, this little synth can blow down doors. It also comes with high-quality delay and reverb effects for adding depth and dimension to the sound, a saturation control for adding a ripsaw edge, and an arpeggiator for instant rhythmic motion.
This is synthesis at its friendliest. The SH-201’s front panel puts every control directly under your fingertips in a logically positioned signal path from left to right. No hidden menus, no nonsense. Just play and move the knobs and sliders. It’s as simple as that! Students of synthesis will love the ease and immediate gratification of the SH-201. No other modern synth on the market is as fun, friendly, and inviting.
Connect the SH-201 to a computer (Mac or PC) with one simple USB cable. Send and receive MIDI and audio through the USB port. Take advantage of the VSTi editing software that’s included with the SH-201 to manipulate sounds from your computer, and to save/organize patches remotely.
External Audio Input
Playing the SH-201 from its keyboard is only half the fun. Try plugging another audio source into its external input (such as CD/MP3-player and samplers) and twist the sound with the front-panel knobs and sliders. Wave your hands over the SH-201’s invisible D Beam and drive the audience wild!
