In an article where Orbital talks about the gear they used on The Blue Album, they talk about the Roland SH-09. Paul Hartnoll says it's "...still a personal favorite of mine. I know there are so many bigger-sounding synths out there, but we always go back to the SH-09 for bass lines. It just has this direct, head-first sort of feel about it. I even pitted it against an Andromeda to get the bass line, and I ended up conceding and had to use the SH-09."more
Release date: 1979 Type: Analogue synthesizer About: You can spot this piece of equipment if you have the Electronic Punks video. Gear info: A very stripped down monosynth from Roland's classic SH-series. It's single oscillator only has PWM, ramp, square and noise waveforms. It has a similar architecture to the SH-101, the VCA can switch between gate or envelope, the VCF is pretty standard, and there is a sample-hold function which is great for VCF filtering into acid and back!more
