The Roland SH-32 is a compact desktop synth with 32 voice polyphony, an arpeggiator, chord memory plus a whole host of controllers. Similar in look to the classic SH-101, the SH-32 brings a host of contemporary features such as:

  • Two independent effect processors: 8 Reverb /Delay types and an INSERT multi-effect with 25 types What we can't figure out though is why this new model has only been anounced on the Roland Germany and Japan Sites.
