Roland SH-7

Roland SH-7 Image

A very flexible oldie from Roland. Standard SH sound with lots more creative control and tweak-ability! The VCO's are a little different than traditional SH synths, they are syncable! There's also a mixer for all the audio signals which can be distorted for brash techno sounds. It's fun and easy to use but very powerful and perfect for screamin' techno sounds and effects! It features many new functions like an external audio input, a ring modulator, syncable VCO's, more waveform shapes, white/pink noise generators and sample+hold. It has been used by INXS.

Very great ring mod as well and five simultaneous modulations can be applied at once to the filter. That's even hard to find in modular. The SH-7 I think works best if you don't have a lot of synths and would be your workhorse. It does many things well but in a crowded studio., I didn't like its size and the character for the size.
