The SH-01A is the latest synthesizer in the Roland Boutique range — a faithful reproduction of the legendary grey monosynth, the Roland SH-101.
Released in 1982, the simplistic design of the “101” earned a legion of fans with its quick-to-program workflow, adept at creating anything from bright, edgy leads, to floor-shaking bass, punchy percussion and exciting sound effects. At its core is an iconic 100-step sequencer whose immediate interface has formed the foundation of countless classic electronic music tracks.
The SH-01A is a meticulous reproduction of the original — in both aesthetics and sound. Inspired design details include the same slider cap design, silver sequencer buttons, metal lever switches and limited-edition red and blue versions. The sounds of the SH-101 have been recreated with the acclaimed Analog Circuit Behavior technology —a solid, sonic foundation for a slew of new features including a four-voice POLYPHONIC mode, 64 preset patches, 64 sequencer patterns and more.
