Superlative SB-1 - SH-101 Style Rechargable Synth

Post by anselmi » Wed Apr 10, 2019 9:28 pm

Replica 3340 voltage controlled oscillator and classic 4-pole OTA VCF with discrete envelope--
It’s exactly what you think it is.

USB, MIDI, and CV/gate input and output allow for simple musical interfacing with other synthesizers and modular gear.

The SB-1 utilizes a newly-developed full-size keyboard based on tactile rubber dome switches for a fast and responsive feel.

A precision engineered chassis enables a new form factor that is thinner than one inch, yet rugged enough for everyday portability and use.

The SB-1 is the first ever analog synthesizer to incorporate a rechargeable battery, allowing all-day playability between charges.

A new dual-layer sequencer allows for synchronized control of a second instrument via CV/gate or MIDI for a dynamic synth duet

It's cool except that it needs the MIDI squid cables.

Beautifully done. :love:

But as with any of these mono synths... price will be the deciding factor for me. This looks really cool, but there’s a definite limit to how much I’ll pay for a SH-101 (or its clone).

Will be watching this one for sure :party:

Batteries are :ripbanana: :ripbanana: :ripbanana: Dont like them! Especially if they are custom and conforms to no standard.

If anything it should be able to run on those external battery pack phone chargers via. USB. Now that would be something...

I would imagine they are likely some sort of fairly standard (maybe Li-ion - though shipping those is a ball ache) so I don't see the problem - probably long life before replacement needed and then imagine that'd be not impossible.

And looks like it will have usb so perfectly possible to use an external usb pack too surely?

101 is the new 303 it seems, everybody and his granny are building one. I like that, lots of options to choose from.
It would seem that still, after all these years, perception is essentially thought to be a passive process.

Sounds spot on. Personally, not crazy on the look, but that wouldn't stop me from using it all of the time.

I wonder how the feel is of those rubbery/silicon looking keys? Looks horrible to play, but I can't be sure from pictures and poor video...
