Very very nice keyboard! Easy to use, wonderful sounds. I have 5 other syntheziser (microkorg, D-50, DX7, JV-1080, NordLead2) and the SH-201 is my favorite with the NordLead. Everything is good on this keyboard, no bug in MIDI!!! like said Angelus...

Nice sound but with one VERY ANNOYING BUG: the advertised USB-MIDI doesn´t work as it should. You have to decide whether to be able to send midi notes to say a midi module such as jp8080 or to be able to sync that module with your host software's tempo. No way to solve this. Even Roland's support concluded they haven't thought of this issue beforehand. If your system involves many MIDI modules and you want to sync everything throughout the SH201, then think again.

I bought this synth about a week ago new at GC and I love it. One of the, if not the best synth I've purchased to far. I’ve gone through my share of keyboards and this is my favorite by far. The feel to it seems a lil cheap with the plastic casing and knobs. The keys are a nice feel compared to my Roland RS-70 Workstation. (Which I sold to get the SH-201) I've read some reviews saying for the price of this bored you can find a SH-101. I say that’s crap, yeah you can get a true analog synth but I'd rather have the useful features too, plus the different waveforms. One of the reasons I went for this synth is the feedback oscillator and the Super Saw. The filters are a great improvement compared to the SH-32 I recently had. You don’t get that stepping sound when you do you sweeps. Maybe a slight one that’s barely noticeable. The lack of screen I really don’t mind. Its straight to the point. The button combinations to access some parameters can be tricky but you can easily get those with the SH-201 editor it comes with. My opinion it’s a great synth for the price.

Some people spoken that the sh201 is a toys... Bad, Bad, the sh201 is not a toys, is a fantastic toys!!! I have payed this 400 euros sligtly used, and i'm very happy for this. with this little beast you can make any type of electronic sound on a light speed. I have used all the virtual analog, many real analog, tryed all the workstation and digital, i'm not new on a synth, and this synth isn't a best sounding synth, but is one of the fun and exciting machine that i have tried. The sound is similar at jp8000 engine, but for me more punched, full and electric... Very loud oscillators, the filters are classic digital rolands, but not bad for a cheap synth, well ronded envelope and fun lfo's. Do not use Fx when programming a patch, isn't clears... For example, the best patch that i have maked is a classic Jx pad, one oscillator super saw, bypass filter, long attack and release, no fx... Simple and beauty :-)
