will a sh 09 bring sth unique and new? especially concerning that i already have a juno 60 and ms 20... can it do sth the others cannot?

yes. its gonna blow away both with bass and pure thickness.


must admit i prefer SH-09/2 vcos to ones in MS20. it got a powerful filter, w agressive resonance. does nice self oscillation sounds too. it will complement 12dB HP/LP in MS20 and 18dB in 303. yep Juno60 got a 24dB filter, but its more of silky nice variety, similar to JP8 (same design).

in addition to bass; for simple leads, and percussive i.e. "arpeggio" sounds, be it straight saw, square and esp PWM sounds.. its nothing short of fantastic.

so, a simple design, nothing spectacular in terms of arhitectural complexity, esp compared to MS-20, yet its basic sound character makes it highly desirable. what it does, it does extremely well.

The SH-09 is decent, but in your shoes I would wait for an SH-2 as it is a far superior synth. The basslines I used to make with the one I had back in the days... Just earth-shatteringg.... It is worth at least 200€ more on the market, but actually I think it is undervalued compared to te sh09 and the sh101.
