Version 1.0.1 of the Volt SH-1 is now available and free of charge for owners of version 1.0.0. It is a minor feature update corrects some minor glitches:
- The device name sticker is now visible when the SH-1 is combined.
- The filter does not show a slight “overshoot” anymore when resonance is set to 0. This is really nice if you want to create some smooth glissando effects. But beware with your current songs as this might slightly alter your filter behavior from version 1.0.0.

Polybonk.com, an online music store specialising in independent music, has published three acid tracks by artist SH9 featuring the Volt CB-1. It might not be obvious to the ears but up to fifteen CB-1’s were used to create the rhythmic patterns and without the help of any automation, just progressive track mutes. As artist SH9 says : “no automation, all modulation”.
