The focus of this demo is the SH-101 plug-out: down-n-dirty short basses, basic arpeggios, and sequences from Arturia Beatstep. I don’t have an original SH-101 so I can’t comment on how similar it may be. I stayed away from tone/crusher and kept the delay/reverb to a minimum just so you could hear the SH-101 sound engine in all its monophonic glory. Some backing rhythms provided by SCI Drumtraks and Roland MC-303.
I have quite a few analog synths running in this video. First the Roland MC-909 is sequencing the Roland D-550, MKS-50, and Gray SH-101 (via Kenton Pro Solo) on top. The drums are running from the Boss RC-300 Loop Station on the floor. I am playing the Synth FX using the red Roland SH-101 and the Oberheim Matrix 1000 triggered by the Fantom X6. I then add a Roland Juno-106 synth part. Other than the sequenced parts, the entire groove is improvised. Enjoy!
All sounds in this song except the choir and speak and spell voice is made with the Roland SH-101.

Demo of a few patches on the Roland DEP-5, a digital effects processor from 1986.
Trying to emulate a Roland TB 303 with a Juno 106. It sounds pretty convincing (except the absence of slide and accent feature). The first part is clean and the second part is with overdrive (Danelectro Daddy-O).
Off course this is an emulation and with the absence of a decent sequencer, slide and accent feature it won’t sound exactly like the real deal. Anyways it was fun trying.
The entire AIRA family has been updated with exciting and useful new features requested by users from around the globe. Easy to install and free for all users, this update includes enhancements to the whole line, such as backup and restore facilities, and better overall MIDI management. It also provides a wealth of product-specific enhancements, such as external MIDI pitch control for VT-3, tuning control for TB-3, and instrument gain control for TR-8.
Product specialist David Ahlund came to show us the new features in the firmware updates for the TR-8 TB-3, VT-3 and System-1 synth. We also got a loot at the new SH-101 Plug-out.
