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 …!
