Hey Cafe

 

Having enjoyed modelling the last synth so much, I thought I'd do a bigger one for my own amusement. The Sh-09 was an analogue micro Monosynth released in 1980. By 10 years later the digital age had arrived, screaming synth leads got displaced by twinkly dreamy electric pianos, and everything went FM and later PWM synthesis. In 1990 Roland were answering the call for a return to the searing analogue leads and basslines, so released this, the JD-800, a veritable juggernaut of a synthstation, utilising hybrid synthesis so we had the best of both worlds - all the analogue goodness, but combined with digital clarity, and DSP.  24 note polyphony and 16 part multitimbrality made this a powerful pads machine with unprecedented levels of practical slider control over virtually every parameter.

 

To put you in the mood, here's the top patches from that...

 

 

Rendering-wise, there's been some challenges to this one - getting the anisotropy right took a while, and I had to make all the panel graphics, which took rather longer :) But whereas my little monosynth had been sitting in a studio gathering dust, or getting bashed about on the road, this one is new out of the box and on display in a synth museum...
