As already known through rumors, The SH-01A, is a reality. This new synth comes into the Roland Boutique family as a small replica. It is completely digital, using Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology that “fully recreates all the details and anomalies of the SH-101”, modeling each component-level analog circuit, such as oscillators, filters and envelopes.

The control panel offers all the manual controls of the original, has the three classic colors of the SH-101: gray, blue and red. Unlike the original synth SH-101, it offers four notes polyphony voices and four modes that significantly expand this new unit:

• Mono mode plays the SH-101‘s classic sound
• Poly mode allows you to play four notes at a time, allowing you to create pads and other harmonic sounds
• Unison mode stacks the four voices, creating bass and leads with greater power and presence
• Chord mode superimposes four tones to play in semitone steps

Now it has 64 patch memories to save sounds, and the ability to save 64 sequence patterns from its 100-step sequencer. It offers CV / Gate, MIDI and USB connections to control modular synths, external hardware and software.

The SH-01A got all the features of the Boutique range such as USB bus power or batteries and integrated speaker. Can be fitted with K-25m keypad (optional).

Price: 399 euros.
