As well as the TR-08 announced today, Roland also released the SH-01A - a Boutique format SH-101  - with those micro faders, which uses the ACB modelling technology found in most of the other Boutiques (aside from the SE-02 which uses tru analog VCOs and VCF)

The new SH-01A comes in three colours, like the original Grey, Blue and Red and features the same basic features as the original SH-101 but with the addition of polyphony - with up to four voices, so you can now play chords.

You also get the same classic step sequencer of the SH-101 which was one of its most endearing features, many people still use this for creating live sequences, but now you can store up to 64, 100 step sequences.
