Incredibly beginner friendly keyboard, easy to use both in studio and live. Customising your own sounds and noises is really fun; an amazing 32 preset sound bank will get you started in no time.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Simple, easy to use, yet offering almost infinite sonic possibilities, I highly recommend the SH-201

      I first received the Roland SH-201 for my 15th birthday. At this time I was simply desperate to own a synthesizer of any kind, despite the fact that I had no previous experience with this form of electrical hardware. I had a basic grasp of how to play the piano at the time, but nothing up until this point had given me any idea as to how to customize my very own sounds from basic waveforms. Luckily enough, however, the SH-201 is incredibly beginner friendly, with an in depth instruction manual to accompany it. The layout of the synthesizer itself is very helpful, with arrows pointing you from button to knob to guide you through the system of building your own sound. I have used this keyboard both live and in the studio, and was very happy with the result achieved in both settings. While the real fun comes from customising your own sounds and/or noises, the SH-201 also offers an amazing 32 preset sounds (covering almost every analog-modeling base out there) which you can also choose to tamper with, and perhaps save the results on one of the 32 spaces in the sound bank. Other bonus features include the tremolo bar, which you can push in various directions and degrees to bend the pitch of a note, as well as the fact that the keyboard can be used as a MIDI keyboard, which is incredibly helpful when hooking it up with the computer music software of your choice. The Roland SH-201 is still one of my favourite musical tools to use, and I recommend it to any beginners in the field of electronic music.
