Released in 1982, Roland's SH-101 is famous both for its look - it could be strapped-on, keytar style - and sound.
Now you can experience the tones of this single-oscillator, monophonic bass synth for yourself, as SampleRadar gives the instrument its very own collection.
What you need to know
The Roland SH-101 samples are split into two folders: Loops and FX.
All the samples are supplied as 24-bit WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The Roland SH-101 synth samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
