Interfacing Roland SH-101 with Analogue Solutions Europa Sequencer

October 6, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background video description:

One of my subscribers needed help interfacing his SH-101 with the Europa sequencer. In this video, I demonstrate clocking the SH-101′s arpeggiator and internal sequencer to the Europa using one of its 7 drum triggers. In this instance, I used trigger “B” since it did not have a drum assigned to the MIDI note number on the Roland R-8M. First, I program a steady stream of eighth notes and then sixteenth notes. I also experiment with dropping various steps to create a pattern. The simple bass line used in this video is from a Novation BassStation rack synth. I added some delay to the 101 with the Lexicon MX400.

Next, I hook up a Roland MPU-101 MIDI to CV converter box to control the SH-101 from the Europa sequencer.

Roland SH-101 Vs TR-909 live session

July 31, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

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.

Vintage synthesizer demo by RetroSound.de

Roland SH-101 and TR-606
FX: EHX Small Stone phase shifter
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!”
:D

here is it in higher audio resolution.

“Therapy”

The SH-101 is very cool, especially for techno, drum&bass and ACID! It’s a monophonic bass synthesizer. Its sound lies somewhere between the TB-303 and a Juno bass sound. It has a lot of simple but cool features. You can control the VCF, pitch, LFO or all from the pitch bender. It has a white noise generator, arpeggiator with up, down and up/down patterns and a simple real-time sequencer. The LFO offers random, sine, square or noise waveforms. And normal or auto portamento effects give you that elastic bass sound. There are external clock inputs for the sequencer and arpeggiator, CV/GATE inputs and outputs and a CV hold pedal.

Unfortunately there is no patch memory storage and although it has no MIDI there are upgrades available for it from many analog service companies that will allow you to incorporate it into any MIDI studio environment. It can also be controlled by MIDI using a CV/MIDI converter. It’s great for bass sounds or bubbly analog effects. They come in three different flavors – gray, blue or red (there was a VERY rare white version too)! It can also be strapped on like a guitar for live performance using the optional Hand Grip.

all synthesizer sounds: Roland SH-101 Analog Synthesizer (1983)
drums: Roland TR-808
recording: multi-tracking without midi
fx: a bit reverb and delay

d16 Group LuSH-101 – Lead and Pad Sounds

March 18, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The saga continues as Prof. Don discusses more sound programming on the LuSH-101 by d16 Group Audio Software. Various lead tones and a thick super-sawtooth pad are demonstrated.

About LuSH-101:

LuSH-101 is a synthesizer created from modules that can be found in many modern virtual synthesizers, all combined into a single compact and logically intuitive design. However, this basic simplicity combined with its multilayer architecture turns it into an easy-to-use but extremely powerful instrument that can be programmed and tweaked quickly, almost effortlessly leveraging its maximum potential.

The multilayer architecture guarantees that both the sound design possibilities and number of unique situations in which LuSH-101 can be used are virtually limitless. Layered sounds can be created simply by assigning the layers to the same MIDI channel; the results can sound as massive as anything imaginable! Assigning the layers to different keyboard zones allows you to create even the most sophisticated splits. Of course, you can always assign the various layers to different MIDI channels for 8-part multitimbral usage. And, virtually any combination of splits, layers, and multitimbrality is possible with just a single instance of LuSH. With each layer working as an independent synthesizer with its own polyphony, parameters, enhanced arpeggiator, and a palette of only the finest insert effects, LuSH-101 can push your creativity to unprecedented levels!

Want to express yourself even more? In addition to a very sophisticated MIDI-learn implementation, an advanced modulation matrix is built into each layer. Even the Arpeggiator’s MIDI output can be used as a modulation source, unleashing your creativity to build complex sequences and progressions.

Stylo-101 – Stylophone+SH-101 arrives

November 30, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Details below:
I-phone 5 friendly! What do you get if you cross a Stylophone with the famous Roland SH-101? Well We have circuit-bent a virtual Stylophone and added Roland SH-101 modifications. You can create wacky and eerie sounds to meaty bass lines. As well as the Stylophone sound, you now have an extra oscillator driving a sawtooth wave with filter and resonance from the SH-101. You can adjust the mixer for each oscillator and the LFO can control oscillators and amp. We have increased the LFO speed and depth of the pitch modulation. We have also added an SH-101 style sequencer for creating bass lines or arpeggios. It is still monophonic but the notes will continue to decay if you release your finger before playing another key. You can also play over the top of the sequence while its playing.

Introducing the powerful LuSH-101 multilayer synthesizer

October 18, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

D16 Group has announced the availability of LuSH-101 (formerly known as SHIOITOR), the long awaited authentic sounding virtual synthesizer for Windows and Mac.

LuSH-101 is a synthesizer created from modules that can be found in many modern virtual synthesizers, all combined into a single compact and logically intuitive design. This basic simplicity combined with its multilayer architecture turns it into an easy-to-use but extremely powerful instrument that can be programmed and tweaked quickly.

The multilayer architecture guarantees that both the sound design possibilities and number of unique situations in which LuSH-101 can be used are virtually limitless. Any combination of keyboard splits, layers, and multitimbrality is possible with just a single instance of LuSH-101. Each layer working as an independent synthesizer with its own polyphony, parameters, enhanced arpeggiator, and a palette of eight insert effects.

LuSH-101 comes complete with a powerful built in mixer, complete with layer-independent parametric equalizers, compressors and three send effects: reverb, delay and chorus.

Innovative oscillator algorithms developed by D16 Group make LuSH-101 sound exactly like a sampled hardware analog synth. Filters with constant resonance across the entire frequency domain has natural warmth and character.

A generous factory library contains more than 1600 presets of every type, while intuitively designed preset browser keeps everything organized and easy to locate.

LuSH-101 for Windows and Mac (32 & 64bit VST/AU) is available to purchase for 149 EUR/$199 USD/£119 GBP incl. taxes (if applicable). LuSH-101 is now also included in the Total Bundle. Discounts are available to registered product owners from their User Area at the D16 Group website.
