Four-pole VCF adaptation of the Roland SH2 synth. Now available again in Eurorack format and in it's second revision based on clones of the original BA662 OTAs.
The Roland SH2 was used for the bassline of the "Stranger Things"-Main Theme and inspired G-Storm Electro-Mastermind Garrin Morse to recreate the filter circuit of the 2-OSC monosynth from 1978.
The original SH2 featured a four-pole OTA design, which previously could also be found in the 703e filter of the Roland modular legend System 700. While CA3080 op-amps were used like in the SH1 and SH7 synthesizers, Roland settled for the BA662 in the SH2 and it's "little brother" SH09. These were also used in early series of Jupiter 4/Promars, while the later 4-pole filters of classics like Jupiter 6/8, Juno 60, JX3P and SH 101 were realized by means of an IR3109 (four BA662 in one IC package).
Sonically, the filter stands for the rootsy 70s Roland-sound - famous for gritty B-movie soundtracks and Berlin School. It surpasses the mid-sounding nasal "synth-pop" character of SH 101 in terms of "fatness" and "juiciness", making it a perfect fit for heavy LFO-pulsewidth-squelches or ultra-deep dub basslines. Whereas the 101 filter, also available as a G-Storm clone, is considered a mid-emphasized "all-rounder" that finds its place in almost every mix.
