SH Poly from Rhythmic Robot is a classic analogue subtractive synth sampled from Roland's flagship of the 70s, the SH7. It features two main oscillators accessing six different waveforms between them, plus a white / pink noise generator, dual LFOs with sine, ramp or randomised output, and a host of modulation possibilities.

The two main oscillators can be thickened further using the Multi-Osc feature, which adds multiple extra detonable oscillators – up to a maximum of ten. SH Poly also features a selection of 70s-inspired effects and Rhythmic Robot's trademark Glitch button, which randomises the instrument in a musically-aware fashion, making generating your own patches extremely simple. The user interface is closely modelled on the classic Roland signature graphics and colour palette.

The original SH7 was a powerhouse monosynth that crowned Roland's lineup in the late 70s. SH Poly takes that sound and turns it into a poly machine: rich, lush pads and thick basses can be dialled up with ease; bubbling leads and squelchy riffs are right there too. The sound is characteristically dense, warm and rich.


  • Two main oscillators with detune.
  • Five waves per oscillator; six wave shapes in total; pink and white noise.
  • Resonant low-pass filter with envelope.
  • High-pass filter.
  • Two LFOs routable to pitch, filter cutoff, amplitude.
  • "Multi-Osc" adds up to eight further, detunable oscillators for astonishingly rich sounds.
  • "Glitch" randomises the instrument in a musical way, generating random new sounds.
  • Chorus, Rotary Speaker, modelled Amp Cab and stereo Reverb effects.
  • Mono or Poly modes, with glide (portamento).
