Roland continue to bolster their Boutique range with the launch of the new SH-01A, a clone of their legendary SH-101 mono synth. This time though, the synth is four-voice polyphonic, with extra features includes unison mode, chord memory and new LFO waveforms, but holds on to the classics such as the 64-step sequencer, CV/gate outputs and even old-school MIDI DIN, missing on other Boutique synths.
Roland’s iconic drum machine the TR-808 is coming to the Boutique range for £339. Announced today on 808 Day, the TR-08 is cut down version of the bass-heavy beast. Following the footprint of the other units in the Boutique range, it’s USB powered and emulates the colour scheme and format of the classic kit.
