Test: SH-4D – the next groovebox bestseller?
After the last releases from RLND in the field of compact synthesizers and groove boxes were rather mixed in terms of quality and the variety of functions and the good sound often went hand in hand with unnecessarily compli- cated operation and some questionable design decisions, the SH-4D is an all-round positive surprise. The new model concept offers quick access to the sound generation and allows both simple and complex sounds, which can be directly adjusted with the numerous controls. The effects are extensive and of high sonic quality, the sequencer convinces with simple operation and all important functions. Even without looking at the manual, we were able to create our first sounds and import patterns directly and, thanks to the built-in high-quality effects and equalizer, then refine each part almost ready for a master. The SH-4D is really fun and relatively inexpensive – what more could you want?
