Recreate the iconic SH-101 as a modern polysynth.

The Roland SH-101 Model Expansion lets you experience the iconic SH-101 monophonic analog synthesizer as a modern polysynth. Originally designed for beginners but quickly adopted by pros, the SH-101 shaped the sound of '80s electronic music with its straightforward interface and distinctive tones. This software expansion for ZENOLOGY and ZEN-Core hardware preserves the SH-101's authentic sound and spirit while unlocking polyphonic potential and a streamlined interface for fluid production in today's studios.

Legendary '80s Synth, Modernized

The SH-101 Model Expansion faithfully recreates the SH-101's analog heart and soul. You'll find the same filters, envelopes and sequencer that defined its unmistakable character. But now with polyphony, the SH-101 can play chords and complex layers. The software interface is thoughtfully redesigned for touch and high-resolution displays, giving you easier control of this classic synth's parameters. Whether you want to recreate '80s pop or forge new electronic music, the SH-101 Model Expansion puts a iconic sound at your fingertips.

Built for Speed in Modern Production

Model Expansions are all about keeping the creative flow going. The SH-101 Model Expansion loads in seconds, features an uncluttered interface and swaps seamlessly with other Expansions. Tweak sounds, save presets or change Expansions entirely—your production momentum never slows down. Additionally, because Model Expansions work both as software and with ZEN-Core synths, you can start a song in the studio and continue working on the go with compatible hardware.

Set the Era of Your SH-101

Not only does the SH-101 Model Expansion give you authentic SH-101 tone, it lets you choose the era. Tweak additional controls to dial in the precise amount of aging and imperfections in filters, oscillators and other circuits. Whether you want an ultra-vintage synth for retro tracks or a cleaner SH-101 for modern productions, you have full control over its condition.

Your Favorite Synth, Anytime, Anywhere

The SH-101 Model Expansion brings this iconic '80s polysynth to your favorite DAW and ZEN-Core hardware. Use the software version when recording and mixing in the studio, then continue working with the same great SH-101 sounds on compatible ZEN-Core synths. However and wherever you create music, the SH-101 Model Expansion ensures your go-to analog synth is always by your side, ready to inspire you with its legendary tone and hands-on experience.
