Roland introduces the SH-2 Plug-Out Software Synthesizer

September 19, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The SH-2 PLUG-OUT Software Synthesizer is a total reproduction of the classic SH-2 synthesizer from 1979. Renowned for its raw vintage tone, the SH-2’s dual VCO plus sub oscillator configuration dishes out devastatingly fat basses, edgy leads and wild effects. With or without a SYSTEM-1, this VST3 and AU plug-in support multiple instances and can be used in any compatible DAW. SYSTEM-1 owners get a dedicated controller and can take advantage of the SH-2’s PLUG-OUT capability and turn their SYSTEM-1 into a stand-alone, hardware SH-2 that can go anywhere and doesn’t require a computer. And this is just the beginning. More synthesizers based on Roland’s acclaimed Analog Circuit Behavior are on the way.

sh-2_plug-out_synthesizer

Everything has been reproduced exactly, from the VCF which is capable of self-oscillation to the attack and long decay characteristics of the steep envelope. The unique harmonic makeup and pitch wavering are present as are the complex interactions between parameters that result from the original analog circuit design.

Even behaviors that occur only in analog circuitry are accurately reproduced, like the subtle effect on tonality when the user tweaks parameters unrelated to the actual tone being produced.

There are even some new features that were not available on the original. This new SH-2 has a VCO range that is expandable to 64′, two envelopes, reverb, delay and crusher effects, Autobend with support for reverse actions, and a tempo-syncable arpeggiator.
