# Red Roland SH-101 with MGS-1 Modgrip

MGS-1, Roland, SH-101 @ 04 November 2018

“You know that sliding bass sound at the beginning of Prodigy’s “Firestarted?” This is the vintage analog synth whose brother made it. 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 apparently 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 deep sub-bass sounds, sliding bass sounds or bubbly analog effects. This one comes with the optional Hand Grip so it can be strapped on like a guitar for live performance” Click here to visit listing on eBay
