A simple live session with the Roland SH-101 Vs TR-909 recorded from the output of an Soundcraft 200sr mixer through a Steinberg MR816x interface. No additional editing, EQ, effects or compression has been added. Just the boxes, unmixed, into a laptop.
My apologies for the Ken Burns effect, I recorded the video stream seperately and ran out of space and hence lost the video.
Just a simple 1 bar sequence with the sequencer of the 101 triggered from the rimshot of the 909.
The Intellijel Dual ADSR:
-Based on the Roland SH-101 design with several enhancements.
-Manual GATE buttons
-Three timing ranges
-Normal and inverted outputs
-End of Decay (EOD) logic output
-Dynamic level control of each ADSR output level via built in linear VCA

Only Roland TR-707 and Roland MC-202.

The Roland SH-2 analog monosynth was a kind of SH-101 but with an extra oscillator and no sequencer – very much with the livery of the SH-09 – which is a nice bass monosynth
Demo of the Roland SH-2 vintage analogue synth. Driven via cv using kenton midi to cv converter and midi sent from Orion daw. Fx indicator on top left visible when used.
Self evolving drone. Was recorded in just 1 shot. Containing a 2 191J system and a SH-101. Effects used during recording are: Eventide H949, Roland RE-201, Fostex 3180, Ibanez AD-202 and a UE-405
The MKS-80 is basically a refined Jupiter 8 in a module. It is called the Super Jupiter and it is very fat and very analog!
Its great sound is due in part to the classic analog Roland technology in its filters, modulation capabilities and a thick cluster of 16 analog oscillators at 2 per voice. It comes in a 2 space rack-module – no keyboard here. Tons of editing capabilities, although editing is tedious. It’s got all the classic sounds of the Jupiter synths and so much more. An excellent choice for ambient drones, pads, blips, buzzes and leads.!
The Jupiter-8 is an 8-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer. Each voice features two VCOs with cross-modulation and sync, pulse-width modulation, a non-resonant high-pass filter, a resonant Low-pass filter with 2-pole (12 dB/octave) and 4-pole (24 dB/octave) settings, an LFO with variable waveforms and routings, and two envelope generators (one invertible).
Features include adjustable polyphonic portamento and a Hold function for infinite sustain of notes and arpeggios. A versatile arpeggiator can be synchronized with external equipment by using the proprietary Roland DCB interface, clock input via CV jacks on the rear panel, or one of the aftermarket MIDI kits from Encore or Kenton. An assignable bender can be used to control pitch or filter frequency.
From the factory, the JP-8 could store 64 patches. Patches could be stored to, or loaded from, a standard analog tape/cassette. The Encore JP8MK MIDI kit doubles the patch memory to 128 and enables the JP-8 to store and recall patches over a MIDI connection, using a computer with sysex utility software.
Here is a Single patch on the Accelerator that attempted to replicate the sound of a Roland Jupiter-8. Chords were played over a sequenced portion of the same patch.
With clever programing a digital synth can sound really analog.

no delay and reverb added!
I deleted the video last year with some others but my good friend from down-under Michael missed it.
he said: “Thank you Marko for introducing me to the world of analog synthesizers, this was the first tech demo I heard from you and to this day it still makes my ears bleed more than a virgin on prom night!”
here is it in higher audio resolution.

The AteOhAte Mutant Cowbell is a DIY (do it yourself) TR-808 Cowbell module based on the analogue circuit in Roland’s famous drum machine. The circuit has been adapted for use in a modular synthesizer, and, while being able to create the same sounds featured on the 808, can also create other sounds thanks to the modified tunable oscillators and voltage control over the cowbell’s pitch.
You can build one yourself at home (along with many other x0x-based drum modules) once PCBs are available from me at hexinverter.net
I will be releasing the AteOhAte Mutant HiHats at the same time as this project.

The System 100m is Roland’s contribution to professional analog modular synthesis. It was based on the more limited, semi-modular System 100, but is several steps of ahead of its predecessor. The System 100m offers over 20 modular components to pick and choose to design a custom modular set-up. The Main unit is the M-110 which has a single VCO oscillator, VCF, and VCA section. You can then build upon this system adding any number and configurations of the various other modules which include dual VCOs, ring modulators, dual VCFs, eq, dual VCAs, dual envelopes, LFOs, various effects, mixers, sequencers, and control interfaces including 3 different keyboard controllers.
Modules are assembled into racks. The System 100m has 3 rack sizes, the M-190 holds 3 modules, the M-191 and M-191J hold 5 modules. Each rack provides the necessary 8-pin DIN power connectors and internal CV/gate connections between the modules. You still need to do some external patching, however, to send your signal through the modules of your choice to create any sounds. As for sounds, the System is basically monophonic, unless you get several racks of them for lots and lots of money! Its sound is not as warm as the System 100 before it, but it offers much more capability.
