You have the following options for an SH-1000:
- Fit a MIDI retrofit kit
- Fit a CV/Gate/Filter Socket Kit so that you can use it with a MIDI to CV converter
1. Fit a MIDI retrofit kit
You can fit a MIDI retrofit kit which will allow you to control the SH-1000 directly using MIDI. Our MIDI retrofit kit is for MIDI IN and THRU only. Fitting a retrofit kit is a skilled job which should be undertaken only by a competent synth service engineer or fitted by us at our premises in Epsom, near London (only available for UK).
2. Fit a CV/Gate/Filter Socket Kit
Kenton make a 3 socket upgrade for this model which provides CV, Gate, Filter cutoff control sockets. This upgrade is available either as a kit for fitting by your own engineer, or fully fitted by us at our premises in London.
The Socket Kit allows you to control the SH-1000 using a MIDI to CV converter, such as Kenton’s CV to MIDI converters.
3 of these 3.5mm – 3.5mm leads will be required to connect your Kenton MIDI to CV converter to the Socket Kit.
