Thanks to Roundhead Studios!

Paddy from Roundhead Studios made an incredible find in a Thames Op Shop over the weekend! A Roland SH-101! A classic synthesizer, used by many great electronic artists of the 90's including the Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, Les Rhythm Digitales and of course Devo.

He runs us through some of its features.
