Roland SH-101 Monophonic Synthesizer has brought sophisticated synthesizer
features, mobility, and the excitement of color together in a cost effective durable
Impact molded high density plastic available in three colors,
red, blue, and gray house a synthesizer with features that compare to models costing
A built-in Digital Sequencer allows automatic playing
of up to 100 steps. In addition to the sequencer, the SH-101 can play automated
lines with its Arpeggio unit.
The Source Mix is capable of mixing
VCO waveforms with Suboscillator and Noise Generator for sound creation
beyond the scope of most monophonic synthesizers.
Key Transpose lets
the user transpose to any key, so the range of performance is expanded. Octave
Transpose can-shift the instrument's range one octave up or down.
addition to the conventional Portamento, an Automatic Portamento is provided which
operates only during legato passages.
There are CV/Gate Input/Output
jacks and an External Clock Input to facilitate a wide variety of interface
Two way power supply enables the SH-101 to go anywhere
and the optional MGS-1 Modulation Grip gives the performing musician mobility

The MGS-1 allows the keyboardist have the same mobility on stage that guitarist
and other instrumentalists have enjoyed. When the MGS-1 is used, the Bender and
LFO functions can be controlled at a single touch.
The Bender is used
in the same way a guitarist bends a string and only functions in the upward direction.The
degree of pitch bend is controlled by the Bender Sensitivity switch.The Bender
on the SH-101 can be used in conjunction with that of the MGS-1.
the LFO button is pressed, LEO waveform modulation of the VCO and VCF occurs.
This produces a choking and vibrato effect.
