£230.00 to £355.00 ex VAT
£276.00 to £426.00 inc VAT


Control your Roland SH-101 from your DAW, MIDI controller or sequencer using the SH-101 MIDI Retrofit from Kenton Electronics.

PLEASE NOTE: Installing a retrofit kit is a skilled job which should be undertaken only by a competent synth service engineer or installed by us at our premises in Tadworth, just outside London.

Note also that retrofit kits are always built to order after your payment has been processed. It then takes us up to 10 working days to build and test the kit before we can despatch it.


This retrofit adds the following MIDI control to the SH-101:

For incoming MIDI:
Any MIDI channel can be selected
Notes (MIDI note numbers 36 – 96) – transpose possible
Pitchbend – (2 semitones, a fifth and an octave selectable)
Mod Wheel (CC#1) (controls the SH-101’s own LFO by default but can be set to control retrofit’s own MIDI syncable LFO
Filter cutoff frequency (of low pass filter) (default is CC#16 but can be any CC or velocity)
Sustain pedal (CC#64) sustains notes
Portamento (CC#65) controls glide (portamento) built into retrofit
Setup is stored in non-volatile memory (EEPROM)

Added hardware:
MIDI In, & Thru sockets
Push button (for programming the MIDI setup)
