Behringer MS-101 vs SH-101 Sound Comparison

Failed Muso takes his time      07/02/19

Robbie Puricelli a.k.a. Failed Muso managed to get hold of a new Behringer MS-101 (in red too!) and compare it with an original Roland SH-101 also in red.

While obviously a clone, the  Behringer has included a couple of popular modifications to the original - most notable the Oscillator FM mod, external audio in, enhanced sequencer and arpeggiator plus USB MIDI and a full MIDI implementation.

The Behringer MS-101 is expected to ship Spring 2019 priced at €299.

In his own words:

Far from being a truly scientific comparison, I was fortunate enough to be loaned a genuine, mint-condition Roland SH-101 so that I could stack it up sonically against Behringer's forthcoming MS-101.

The main objective of this video is to demonstrate how close the MS-101 gets to sounding like the SH-101and to see if it really can be a viable alternative to a synth that still commands £1K+ on the second hand market. As such, it is more of a comparison video, rather than one that explores all the sonic possibilities, features and functionality of the MS-101.
