Rhythmic Robot releases SH Poly for Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot SH7

Rhythmic Robot has released SH Poly, a classic analogue subtractive synth for Native Instruments Kontakt, sampled from Roland’s 70’s flagship synthesizer, the SH7.

It features two main oscillators accessing six different waveforms between them, plus a white / pink noise generator, dual LFOs with sine, ramp or randomised output, and a host of modulation possibilities.

The two main oscillators can be thickened further using the Multi-Osc feature, which adds multiple extra detonable oscillators – up to a maximum of ten, for an intense, stacked, “supersaw” style sound. SH Poly also features a selection of 70s-inspired effects and Rhythmic Robot’s trademark Glitch button, which randomises the instrument in a musically-aware fashion, making generating your own patches extremely simple. The user interface is closely modelled on the classic Roland signature graphics and colour palette.

The original SH7 was a powerhouse monosynth that crowned Roland’s lineup in the late 70s. SH Poly takes that amazing sound and crams it into a poly machine: rich, lush pads and thick basses can be dialled up with ease; bubbling leads and squelchy riffs are right there too. The sound is characteristically dense, warm and rich, especially with the Over Load control turned up and a little dose of Multi-Osc.

SH Poly features

  • Classic twin-oscillator subtractive synthesis in a Roland-inspired framework.
  • Multiple samples of authentic SH7 oscillators.
  • 58 factory patches to start you off.
  • “Multi-Osc” allows extra oscillators to be switched in for a hugely rich, intense sound.
  • “Glitch” button for instant, musically-randomised inspiration.

The Poly SH for Kontakt is available to purchase for the introductory price of £13.45 GBP (regular £14.95 GBP).
