This is a demo of the Roland SH-1000 analog synthesizer with Roland DEP-5 effects processor.
The Roland SH-1000, introduced in 1973, was the first compact synthesizer produced in Japan.
The SH-1000 resembles a home organ more than a commercial synth, with 10 simple preset voices, but the SH-1000 can be manually tweaked to create new sounds. Its features include white and pink noise generators, portamento, octave transposition and a random note generator.
Notable SH-1000 users include The Human League, Jethro Tull, Blondie and Eddie Jobson.

The monophonic Roland SH-1000 was the first synthesizer from Roland – and the first synth of the SH-series! It has a surprisingly good basic sound. The filter sounds like a 24 db one. You have many waveforms with many footages, wich you can switch on simultaneously. A very underrated synth – as you can hear…
