Sounds like he was actually offering the Roland SH-101... which is not
part of the Roland modular synth seris (System 100 I think is right?) at
all... the SH-101 was famous in the 80s for being that little keyboard
that people strapped on and tweaked like it was a guitar... more
recently, it has gotten popular again due to techno. $325 is the low
side of prices for it; I like it, but I'm not sure I'd pay $325 for a
sequencerless monosynth. Considering I got two polyphonic analogs (the
Juno 106 and the Matrix 1000, the latter being quite complex) for less
than that. (:
