About SH

The SH-101 is a classic bass synthesizer made popular in acid genres like Acid House or Techno. It’s got a warm, analogue sound and the particular unit I sampled was quite gritty, which you can hear in the samples.

The SH-101 does not normally make drum sounds but I set about synthesising a few and the good ones made it here. There are 4 round robins for each sample and I’ve set those samples up in an Ableton Drum Rack. This is definitely not your standard drum kit but the sounds are gritty and analogue and work great as percussive additions to any track.

The samples are also available separately for use in other samplers.
