Roland SH101 Software Synth

I was sent a link to an interesting and free software vst synth the other day. It's inspired by the classic Roland SH101 analog synth. I have had a little try of this VST and it sounds great. I am not sure how much of a SH101 emulation it really is, as I have never used a real one, but it does sound good. I think I can definitely find a good use for this synth on my next album. The synth is really easy to use as well, which makes a change :-)

Here is the product description from their site:

TAL-BassLine is a virtual analog bass synthesizer especially made for bass, acid sounds and effects. It’s based on a robust core and has the usual controls of analogue hardware synthesizers.

A unique -18dB low pass filter with a lot of asymmetric and random components introduce a warm and analogue sound. Very fast, non linear envelopes are also a part of this synth.

  • Bandlinited oscillators (saw, pulse).
  • Sub-oscillator: square -1 oct., square -2 oct., pulse -1 oct, pulse -2 oct.
  • -18 dB/octave low-pass filter (resonant/self-oscillating).
  • LFO (frequency: 0,1 .. 30 Hz, waveforms: sin, tri, saw, rec, noise).
  • Very fast nonlinear envelope (A: 1.5ms..4s, D: 2ms..10s, S: 0..100%, R: 2ms..10s).
  • Simple Arpeggiator (up, down, one octave mode).
  • 2x Unisono Mode.
  • Panic button.
  • MIDI automation for all sliders and pots.
  • Precise fader control while holding down the "Shift" button.
  • Supports all sample-rates.
  • 2x oversampling.
  • 23 presets.
