Just a few months after the SH-101 plug-out, Roland has delivered a virtual version of the decidedly more obscure SH-2 synth. Although I’ve never owned an SH-2, I’ve used them in the studio. While the SH-101’s slightly plastic sound has made it a workhorse in the dance music era, the SH-2 has a distinctly aggressive synth-pop vibe, more akin to Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails. It also excels at greasy funk basses, especially with the resonance up a touch.
