A Rare Chance to Hear The Roland SH-2

Synthman Prophecies demonstrates      27/07/13

As I couldn't get to the Syth DIY UK event today at Robinsons College in Cambridge, I was looking for a synth fix elsewhere  and spotted this SH-2 demo from Synthman Prophecies.

The Roland SH-2 analog monosynth was a kind of SH-101 but with an extra oscillator and no sequencer - very much with the livery of the SH-09 - which is a fabulously bassy monosynth and can still be picked up for a reasonable amount I just checked, scratch that...

The SH-2 however seems to be closer to about a £grand.

The SH-2 still sounds good but very dated. Roland had some great sounding filters back in the day. They should design a similar unit with modern amenities like midi and patch storage.

After watching & listening to the Sub Phatty demo, why does this sound "fatter" to me than the Moog? I could be bias that I always love the saw on the original TB-303. Did the SH-2 share the same saw oscillator as the TB-303?

Could be the signal path - it may have had post processing we dont do any in our demos.

I have clearly indicated when the FX is used in the demo. There are 5 sequences in my demo. The first is a bass sequence and has no FX. The other have FX used. Some have delay and some reverb or both. They are all exactly indicated on the top left with when the FX used.
