Roland SH-2 Synthesizer


The Roland SH-2 Synthesizer is an analog synthesizer released by Roland in 1979. It is a two-oscillator monophonic synthesizer with a single filter and a single envelope generator. It is known for its thick, warm sound and its ability to create a wide range of sounds. It has been used by many artists, including Depeche Mode, The Human League, and New Order.

The SH-2 works by combining two oscillators, each with its own waveform, to create a sound. The oscillators can be tuned to different pitches and combined with the filter and envelope generator to create a wide range of sounds. The filter can be used to shape the sound, while the envelope generator can be used to control the attack, decay, sustain, and release of the sound. The SH-2 also features a noise generator, which can be used to add texture to the sound. Additionally, the SH-2 has a built-in arpeggiator, which can be used to create rhythmic patterns.
