ABOUT identical to sh101, computer controlled , 1 VCO plus Sub, quite fat and typical roland. rare, has noise generator like the SH101, so it is more the mc202 concept but the structure of the SH101
ABOUT identisch mit SH101 - (computer controlled) 1 VCO und 1 Sub, recht fett und mittig, typisch Roland SH.

Sehr nahe am SH101 orientiert, sogar mit Rauschgenerator, den der MC202 nicht hat im Vergleich.
DETAILS Nice one-OSCed synth with SubOsc. LFO can trigger ENV. needs to be controlled by a computer (vintage of course)
DETAILS ein netter 1 VCO Synth mit Subosc. LFO kann ENV neu triggern. muss über einen (alten) computer gesteuert werden
SOUND bass and lead. nice one on stage! it is a very good choice compared to the other small SH-synths, but preferrable the SH101 and MC202 because this thing was meant to be a computer controlled system and ahead of it's time. it did not make it's way.
SOUND bass und lead. sehr feiner kleiner live-synthesizer. durch seinen sequencer und arper ist er das mehr als die anderen kleinen SH-Synthesizer.
VERSION alternatives are sh101 (same) or mc202 (no noise generator)
VERSION alternativen mit reglern: sh101 oder mc202
