Actually, it has soft and hard sync from VCO1 to VCO2:Bitexion wrote:The SH5 has ring modulation but no hard sync.
On the SH2/SH09 oscillator, I think part of it is the VCO design, but alot of it is how the VCF does or doesn't degrade the signal, depending on cutoff setting. I run my SEM oscillators through my modded SH-101's filter, an IR3109, which is a VLSI version of the VCF in the others mentioned, and can get something similar if the VCO output is hot enough.
Filters again, in this case that parallel fixed bandpass. It doesn't sound nearly as creamy if you take the VCF out of "VCF,BPF" mode. I love it too though. I'd sell my SEM and ditch my SH-101 in a flash if someone would sell me an SH-5 for a not stoopid price. Problem is, they are just too rare.minime123 wrote:well, *lets just put it this way*... when I wanna get jiggy with it, i reach for my sh5. it ShRedDdDdDz, Do0d! roland sure packed that thing with MASSIVE amounts of creamy goodness.
I know a certain someone on this forum who was using his just as a keyboard controller for his ARP 2600, and I was compelled to protest with righteous indignation.
