OK, we've seen an SH-101 PLUG-OUT before, for the System-1, but this SH-101 PLUG-OUT Software Synthesizer, officially launched at Summer NAMM supports the standard VST and AU plug-in formats. A Roland spokesperson had this to say...
"Like its hardware counterpart, the new SH-101 PLUG-OUT Software Synthesizer is a complete and authentic reproduction of Roland's iconic SH-101 monophonic synth from the 1980s, right down to the fine details and odd quirks that make it one of the most popular classic synthesizers of all time. Based on Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, the new soft synth version not only reproduces the original SH-101's legendary sounds, but faithfully recreates the very behavior of its analog circuitry. Included are classic SH-101 synth sounds -- bass, lead, noise, and sound effects, plus reverb, chorus, delay and crusher effects that were not included in the original."
