roland sh201 live capabilities.

someone was playing a roland sh201 live in a band that i watched, i was wondering is it possible for them to play sounds other than presets from the synth and patches created on that synth? would it just be using it as a midi controller like when it is connected to a pc? but there was no pc.

how can it play sounds other than what was created on the synth?

The synth could have been used as a midi controller. There might have been another synth or a rack mount synth or a sampler or whathaveyou that he was controlling.

the keyboard player had a roland sh201 stacked on top of a yamaha dx 7. i couldnt see anything else such as racks. so does this mean that sounds other than what these synths could have produced could have been playing?

Yes. If he was running midi from the 201 to a racked synth somewhere, you could have been hearing that. Though if that were the case, why use a synth and not just a midi keyboard?

Ex 201 owner. He was just going out of the 201's MIDI out and going into his rack MIDI in. He would have turned his 201's volume down while playing the other synth.
