Roland SH-32 – Video by Ares Kalogeropoulos

The Roland SH-32 uses a Wave Acceleration Synthesis to deliver up to 32 voices of synth waves and new waveforms. There’s also a fair complement of knobs and sliders, plus analog-style drums, DSP effects and a killer arpeggiator. A very compact machine, occassionally discussed as little brother of the brilliant JP-8000.

Video and music (it’s all the SH-32) by Ares Kalogeropoulos.

Roland SH-1000 – Video by Ares Kalogeropoulos

The Roland SH-1000 – the first compact synth produced by Roland back in 1973.

An absolutely simple and great sounding synth that gives you smooth basses and edgy leads. In combination with a external stereo delay and reverb it can be a source of inspired music that harks back to the early days of electronica. Even more, actually. Unorthodox use of this synth – letting little accidents happen – will produce screamy resonant leads and buzzy basses with hi speed LFO effects!

Here is a demo I made with the sole use of the SH-1000, with a soft delay and reverb giving it additional atmosphere. A beautifully ugly machine …!

The Trinity – Video-Demo by Ares Kalogeropoulos

One of the most successful workstation/synthesizers in the last 3 decades. A beautiful sounding and State of the Art music machine, that gives you everything you need to expand your music productivity.

Here is a music-video demonstrating what this instrument can do in a studio production – using only the Trinity and some external soft effects (reverb, delay).

GRP A4 Synthesizer – First Official Videos

It’s exciting when a brandnew (and cool!) analog synthesizer sees the light of day. The GRP A4 prototype was completed last week! Enrico Cosimi – keyboarder and writer for “Audio Central Magazine” – has created four GRP A4 videos. He explains the instrument, step by step. Enrico’s summary: The A4 sounds even (slightly) better than the wonderful A8. It’s more versatile, it’s the “Wild Analog” …!

Now … sit down, have some coffee … and enjoy the A4!
