G-Storm Electro has released two modules for Eurorack that aim to bring the sound and function of the Roland SH-101 into Eurorack form. The 101-VCO and 101-VCF pretty much nails it.

101-VCO

The oscillator is very familiar and you’ll find that CEM3340 chip in all sorts of places. What’s cool about the 101-VCO is that G-Storm has designed the front panel in such a way to capture the flavour of the SH-101. Or perhaps more accurately it captures the flavour of the Behringer MS-1 because like Behringer they’ve decided to reveal the triangle wave and the FM that the Roland SH-101 doesn’t have.

The 101-VCO has pulse, sawtooth and triangle waveforms with a pulse wave sub-oscillator with 2-octave choices and noise. It’s all mixed together in the bottom half of the panel and has a single mixed output, although there’s also an expander available to give you individual outputs – nice! At the top you get CV controllable pulse-width, FM, range and tuning. It’s all there really quite brilliantly.

101-VCF

The filter is good and simple following the same design with separate CV over the cutoff and resonance plus two inputs with a balance knob between them.

Red or Blue?

The modules are available with either red or blue faceplates and they look absolutely fabulous. They’ve also got a Pro One, Jupiter 6 and Korg style filter modules up there amongst other cool stuff.

Available now

The 101-VCO is available for €210 and the 101-VCF goes for €196.
