Analog-Style Sound
With two analog-modeling oscillators onboard, complete with Roland’s famous Supersaw waveform and resonant filter, this synth can "blow down doors". It also comes with high-quality delay and reverb effects for adding depth and dimension to the sound, a saturation control for adding a ripsaw edge, and an arpeggiator for instant rhythmic motion.

Easy Operation
The SH-201’s front panel puts every control directly under your fingertips in a logically positioned signal path from left to right. No hidden menus. Just play and move the knobs and sliders. Students of synthesis will love the ease and immediate gratification of the SH-201.

USB Connectivity
You can onnect the SH-201 to a computer (Mac or PC) with one simple USB cable. Send and receive MIDI and audio through the USB port. Take advantage of the VSTi editing software that is included with the SH-201 to manipulate sounds from your computer, and to save/organize patches remotely.

External Audio Input
Also you can plugging another audio source into SH 201 external input (such as CD/MP3-player and samplers) and twist the sound with the front-panel knobs and sliders. Wave your hands over the SH-201’s invisible D Beam and drive SH 201 with no hands
