I'd have the OB as well.

I think I'd have the OB-6 over a Jup-8 honestly.

I'd even have a Prophet Rev2 over the Jupe! I'm not a Roland fanboy obviously.

So... Roland has just announced a boutique version of the SH-101 AND a boutique version of the 808?

Ok, so the 101 might be cool... but an 808? Why would they cannibalize potential TR-8 sales? Does not compute.

It is?

I haven't read anything about them but the headlines. That could be interesting.

Synth companies must be crapping their pantaloons now that Behringer is regularly releasing analog stuff.

I never thought I'd see the day... but very glad it's happening :lol:

I think the other synth companies will have to focus on new and exciting features. The "copying old stuff" market is probably down to Behringer and Korg now. And Roland, because Roland fanboys will buy stuff only if it had the Roland name on it. Thankfully Roland is also releasing forward-thinking, good sounding stuff.

so teh blurry potato cam was accurate after all!

as previously stated the sh-101 is cool af but i don't feel the gas :meh:

my buddy had an original sh-101 and i just didn't think it did all that much even with his sweet analog sequencer he built

the tr-08 on the other hand, ya, i'd prolly just get the larger tr-8 from a couple years back. there are 707, 808, and 909 sounds in there with "scatter" insta-remix effects, etc

i've just been so spoiled with my drum machine sample collection with wave alchemy, gold baby, etrainer, etc combined with piano roll and xox sequencing in logic i don't feel the need for a hardware drum machine.

obvs to each their own... my friend has a machine drum, oktatrack, etc and is all hardware. different courses for different gear whorses i suppose...

fyi i read somewhere that tom is doing replacement sems without the box for like $600 something. i always thought it would be sweet to build a custom rack with 2 sems in there but the $800+ cost made it a bit prohibitive

if behri would release a matrix 12 for a decent price with snappier envelopes and most of the features that would be amazeballs

I've owned a sh-101, very nice in the bass but I always found it whiny higher up and hard to integrate with other gear. Definitely a 'hard' sounding synth.

I had a 101 for a few years. One of the funnest synths to play. Keys felt nice and it had a wonderful sound.

I never strapped it on though.

SH-101: you have one oscillator, you detune it, than what?
