It will be interesting what this guy thinks of it as he has other boutiques:

I never played with an original SH-101 but i think this sounds good ! Too bad about the super-mini sliders and knobs. And I still think it's too pricy, if the boutique range was closer to volca-prices, I wouldn't be hesitating so much over this one (and the new tr-08).

Still seems like too much money to me (500$ cnd) for such a small piece that must not cost so much to manufacture.

I've found it odd how the price has jumped up from the £250 mark to the £350 mark since the original crop of machines.

Roland will probably reissue the JU-06 as ACBB.

Back on topic, anyone missing the SH-101's bender should get themselves an old Roland controller like the PC-200. Won't cost more than about £25.00.
One I'm watching on eBay is now at £330.

EDIT:

£430

If they came out with 6 or 8 voice versions of the Boutique devices, they would rule the world. They could easily charge $400 for such devices, and they'd have a hard time keeping them in stock.

This is a great video.

I sold my SH-101 to a guy for £150 in 1996. ****ing gutted.

He took my MC-202 as well.

I agree with the Atlantis love. It's an incredible piece of kit.

UK price hype b*ll*cks. that really is the mug's price.

in 96 150quid was about what you could get them for (101s)
i scored an mc202 for 150 around then, paid the same
for the 101. which is the kind of nice price that made
the whole thing worthwhile. what's happened in the
meantime is a nuisance. blame the internet, of course.

I paid $175US for my Juno 106 in the mid 90s.

It was still possible to get great synths for not a lot of money in the mid 90s. I picked up two of my best analog polys around that time. I also blame the internet. The old machines were fun when they weren’t expensive. Forget it now. I would definitely choose an Atlantis over an SH-101 at this point. That train has left the station…

having said that, of course, the internet teaches us about stuff
we might never come across in the wild. i was fortunate in having
some excellent 2nd hand shops nearby at the time, so you could
just go in and try out anything you hadn't seen before.

i think i've waited over 20 yrs for a desktop Juno or DCO poly
-and still haven't tried a Boutique. it's pretty much inexplicable
that they have not done this before. how much time have we
wasted trying to get digital stuff to sound like them...

also reckon the 150-300 pricemark was about correct for a
monosynth, so what they've gone to now is 'wdf'.. i can't
stand it when people go oh it's 'worth' 1000 whatever. the
big kick was having that sound in your hands coming from a
generation where 'synthesizer' meant impossibly expensive.
i was sitting there in awe at my luck, thinking to myself
'the Means of Production...' ( and then i sold the ....'en thing..)

inexplicable also: with modern pcb manufacturing, *how come*
we haven't been offered analog re-iterations before, in compact
form?! they would not be expensive to reproduce, and i doubt
very much that the original ICs are essential. my current little
poly is the MFB PolyLite, which is of course a compromise, with
alleged 'digital' oscillators (although the notion of 'digital' in an
oscillator needs to be more closely defined - some DCOs are by
definition 'digital' though the generation of the waveform is
ultimately analog. people confuse this with VA) - and well, it's
pretty good and offers quite a bit more. hasn't quite got the
classiness of using the rolands, but it's minuscule, and captures
some of the feel where earlier VA has a bit of a fuzzy quality to
it by comparison. realistically, these days, most of us need
small format synths. the size, and not wanting keyboards, is
the main reason i sold junos - which isn't what this thread is
about, but i think i get more of a buzz from smaller boxes that
can be interconnected to get away from the constraints of
MIDI and computer sequencers. and you need real estate to
keep the big instruments.

on a positive note, you can still get insane deals, and it
might even come around again. saw a kawai k3 yesterday

I know this feeling. In the mid 90s, I picked up a synth for $1,000 that had originally cost $10,000. To me, though, it still felt like a $10,000 synth. It still does, even now, 20 years later. I sit down and think "Yeah, I can see how this would have cost 10 grand in 1980." Part of the enjoyment, though, is in not having paid so much. When I see some of the prices now for vintage gear on eBay, I'm like no way! Are they mad?! Anyway, back to the SH-01A... so far I like what I'm seeing and hearing. I could imagine it being a lot of fun to play. Having already entered the boutique line with the purchase of an A-01K, I could also imagine buying one.
