New Roland Synth Keeps Us Guessing

Limited information available on enigmatic new SH 32      23/10/01


A new Roland Virtual Analog has been spotted in several locations on the web. 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:
  • Filters base waveform-shaping (Saw, Square, pulses Widh Modualtion, Triangle/Sine, Spectrum Noise) with up to 20 variation waveform-shaping algorithms
  • Four sets with Rhythm maps (two Preset and two user)
  • 32 voices and 4 Multitimbral parts
  • Sub oscillator with Subsonic mode
  • Chord MEMORY function
  • Special automatic controllers, Fader or tracers for all important functions
  • Preview function plays sounds in the form of scales
  • 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. Also, www.keyboardshop.com appear to have it listed We did contact Roland in the UK but no answers have been forthcoming. Price and availability TBC.
