Modularised Roland SH3a Up for Auction

via this auction

"The SH3a is unique as a sound effects synthesizer in having a single oscillator with multiple footages all with different waveforms, "chorus" (pulse width modulation) on the 8 foot waveform, dual independent LFO's, white noise, and a sample & hold section capable of creating complex glissando and arpeggio patterns.

I used this SH3a for sound effects as a substitute for the larger and more expensive EMS Synthi VCS3, and with some reverb and delay added it sounds stunning.

White noise is also included and there are various modes for bending the pitch, as well as voltage inputs for filter and oscillator on the rear.

There isn't a Gate input so with the keyboard removed you can't play melodies on it as such. But the three keyboard connection cables are bundled inside and an experienced engineer could access these to restore keyboard functions, or to interface an analog sequencer. I have NOT kept the keyboard.

In very good working order and playing condition. The 32' footage doesn't work but for very deep bass you can transpose down very low while using the 16' setting. A spray of switch cleaner would be of benefit on most switches and rotaries."
