    Description
    The Roland SH-2 Synthesizer is a compact dual
    oscillator lead synthesizer designed to offer the
    musician uncompromised sound, performance flexibility
    and durability at a moderate price The SH-2's
    exceptional quality combined with its unique live
    performance and interfacing features allow it to
    surpass the capabilities of many larger, more
    expensive synthesizers.

    The VCO section features virtually rigid pitch
    stability under even the most difficult conditions
    and produces precise, rich waveforms including:
    Noise, Sine, Sawtooth and Square Waves and a
    Variable Pulse Wave with both LFO and Envelope
    Modulation options, VCO-1 and VCO-2 each
    feature five octave range options, a separate waveform
    selector, and a shared master Tuning control.

    VCO-2 may be tuned separately over a narrow or
    wide range for unison or chorus tuning or for playing
    parallel lines. A Sub-Oscillator produces a
    Square wave tone one octave below VCO-1
    that may be mixed in at the Audio Mixer for thick three
    oscillator sounds and extra flexibility without
    introducing tuning difficulties Both of the VCO's
    and the Sub-Oscillator may be modulated by Autobend,
    the LFO Modulator which includes Square wave.
    Delayed Sine wave of Sample and Hold options, or
    through manual Pitch Bending.

    The VCF section of the SH-2 features the highest
    quality 24 dB/octave Low Pass Rlter available for
    stability flexibility and rich, deep tones. The extra
    flexibility is achieved through the SH-^s modula-""
    tion options including: a positive or inverted
    envelope, an envelope follower for. processing
    external instruments, three LFO modulation options,
    resonance control thai may be pushed into selfoscillation
    for use as an extra sine wave oscillator,
    fully adjustable Keyboard control, and control of the
    filter from the Bender section.

    The VGA may control volume with the Envelope
    Generator, directly from the Keyboard Gate or be
    fully opened with a Hold switch for added flexibility
    This control is enhanced by the complete four
    slider ADSR Envelope Generator which may be
    activated by either the Keyboard Trigger and Gate,
    the Keyboard Gate alone or by the LFO and the
    Keyboard Gate together. These options combine
    with other control possibHrties to make the SH-2
    an exceptionally sensitive musical instrument

    The LFO Modulator control offers Sine Waves with
    or without delay. Square Waves Sample & Hold and
    a separate Sine Wave without delay for the Pulse
    Width Modulation section The LFO speed is
    fully adjustable and indicated by LED for precise,
    predicatable control

    The SH-2 Bender section is the finest available
    The center sprung lever returns to its origin
    automatically for quick, easy, musically secure
    playing. The Bender may control pitch through the
    VCO's or tone through the VCFatther separately
    or simultaneously with amounts preset by the per- former
    for exact, predictable control of the synthesizer.
    Pitch bend may be applied to both VCO's
    or to VCO-2 alone for special effects such as
    bending to change the musical interval between
    the two VCO pitches.

    Interface options on the SH-2 include industry stan-dard
    CV and Gate inputs and outputs for connection
    with Roland CSQ Digital Sequencers, other Roland
    synthesizers and with any other equipment
    offering 1 volt per octave Keyboard Control Voltage
    and positive voltage Keyboard Gate input and out- puts
    Other instruments may be processed through the
    SH-2- using the selfcontained External Audio Input
    with the Envelope Follower contained in the VCF
    section.

    The SH-2 is equipped with a V* inch phone jack
    output for connection with any conventional
    amplification and with a separate V* inch stereo
    phone jack connection for headphone monitoring .
    through a self-contained headphone amplifier. A
    connection cable is included with options for connection
    to either a y* inch phone jack socket or any female RCA jack socket
