Roland SH-7

   (0 reviews)

The highly regarded SH-7 from Roland features two syncable oscillators. An on-board mixer section lets the player mix all audio sections including external audio.In addition there is a ring modulator and yet more waveform shapes, as well as white and pink noise generators and, sample+hold.

The Roland SH-7 Synthesizer employs newly developed VCO and VCF circuits. It incorporates two VCO's which enable you to perform two note intervals. The SH-7 uses the pitch standard of 1 volt/1 octave which is fast becoming an industry standard, particularly with studio type equipment. This means that the SH-7 is compatible with most types of studio equipment and with many stage type synthesizers.

The SH-7 provides inputs for external control voltage and gate for control of the synthesizer by means of an external keyboard controller, organ keyboard (such as the VK-9 or VK-6), guitar synthesizer, computer (such as the MC-8 MicroComposer). Control voltage and gate outputs are also provided so that the SH-7 can be used to control other synthesizers.

The SH-7 incorporates an envelope follower and a six mode multi-bender to give remarkable versatility to the SH-7. It is possible to control pitch, tone color, and/or volume by means of the LFO for unique vibrato and tremolo effects. A great deal of planning went into the design of a logical panel layout to give the performer greater ease and freedom during performance.
