This is without doubt one of the most amazing products from Roland. The SH-4d provides five tracks of quality, sequenced synths and rhythm. As a product, it builds on a number of music making ideas from other popular Roland gear, like the JD-xi, whereby you can build your backing tracks, for example, using the vast backlog of Roland drum machines and dedicated synth modules like the sh01 and the JU06. This all comes in a highly portable package, with excellent sound shaping capability and can also be powered by batteries. Whilst the button-type keyboard may seem a little quirky at first it is, nevertheless, highly functional and takes only a little time to get used to. After a little technical reading and a lot of quality playtime the end product is sure to amaze.

So many sounds in this box it is a joke … Great as a standalone portable groovebox and also perfect as a sound module paired with an MPC or similar.

Still finding my way round it, but there's not a bad tone in it, and the flexibility is amazing. Not fully Zen Core compatible, but it has enough to keep you interested for hours. At one point my missus thought I had gone out I was so engrossed in this thing! Cheaper than a Jupiter Xm, just as much fun.
