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.
