What we say:

At A Glance:

The SH-01A from Roland is a modern recreation of the legendary SH-101 synthesizer. While being much smaller than the original, the SH-01A faithfully recreates the sound of the SH-101 while including extras like 4-Voice Polyphony. Polyphonic SH-101? We’ll take it!

Features We Love:

Legendary SH-101 Sounds

The SH-101 is a vintage synthesizer released in 1982. The thick monophonic tones of the synth can be heard on hundreds of albums from the last 4 decades. Roland have managed to recreate this perfectly, thanks to their ACB Technology.

Ultra Compact

The SH-01A is very compact, meaning you can take those amazing sounds anywhere with ease. It can run on AA batteries, and has a built in speaker so you can play it wherever you want. With it also being USB bus powered, it is really easy to fit into your studio set up too.


You’ll find USB MIDI and Audio, 5-Pin MIDI IN/out, a headphone output and a stereo 3.5mm output on the SH-01A. There are so many options here that can work seamlessly with either a DAW setup, a hardware setup or standalone.
