This synth has been one of the most useful in my bands recording sessions, when we'll looking for just the right classic and not overthought sound this is the one we turned to again and again. It probably isn't the "lead" synth for dance or techy music, but for adding that vintage synth blare, I can't see it being beaten....favorite tones...planet, funny cat, and fuzz guitar....it's just wants to rock

Aquired mine back in 1990 after my ARP Pro Soloist died. Surprisingly fat sound, but then the earlier models have ripped off the moog patented filter design hence the fat sound. Not as versatile as the SH1000, but more control than the Pro Soloist. Snaped up by organists performing in many local working men's clubs, hence the organ tab stops.

Some useable/tweakable presets. LFO rate, cut off, Resonance and LFO depth can be altered to make subtle or quite drastic alterations.

Aftertouch and Growl were superb and quite advanced for a 1974 piece of kit. Mines still going strong but probably needs a service.

This was my first old analogue synth which I swopped for an old Hohner accordian. I 've only just found out that its a SH2000 as there was a metal sticker covering the logo. It has odd preset sounds like funny cat,planet,space reed and singing voice, and the sounds can be messed with a bit, the aftertouch is excellent and produces some really good growly sounds. Not the best, but a minor classic

Roland`s Millennium synth (;-)

Doesn`t sound as nice as the Pro-Soloist and not as capable as the SH1000 in the controls dep`t but at least (like the ARP) it had aftertouch. must be the cheapest way to get a Roland monosynth though I feel that a hundred nicker could be spent more wisely.

I bought one of these back in 1974..and man was it cool! It was the first Roland product I ever saw, roughly comparable to the ARP Pro Soloist. The product lit. showed it sitting on a home organ..MOM was playing it!

Had a series of preset tabs with strange names, like 'Frogman' or 'Planet'. But gee...you could make raailroad noises and gunshots with the 'wind' tab (white noise) or a motorcycle throb and accelerate with 'frogman'. Even back then the Roland filter sounded Fat.

You had access to a LPF, and could assign the aftertouch to a number of effects. The aftertouch had a good feel, a second 'dip' into the keybed, easy to get to, but hard to activate accidently.

I wore mine out...and would buy a used one to relive 'old times'. A nice starter and an overlooked relic.
