  • GAIA SH-01: Synthesizer
    Flash Back, Flash Forward
    .features
    With its massive sound, hands-on ease, and affordable price, the GAIA SH-01 is a high-performance value with old-school charm. The triple-stacked engine puts potent virtual analog synthesis under your fingertips, yet the control panel is so fun, friendly, and inviting, even first-timers can create great sounds. The signal flow is simple to grasp, with logically arranged knobs, sliders, and buttons. Hands-on control and fat sound make this little powerhouse a joy for music students, songwriters, session players, and live performers of all styles and skill levels.

    Huge sound with three virtual analog engines onboard, each with a dedicated oscillator, filter, amplifier, envelope, and LFO
    Layer up to five simultaneous effects, including distortion, flanger, delay, reverb, low boost, and more
    64-voice polyphony for massive sounds without note drop-out
    Fun, hands-on control panel that

        • OK, so here is what appears to be new on the GAIA:

          Battery powered.

          3 completely separate synth voices, which appear to be single-oscillator. So instead of have a 3 OSC synth that mixes the oscillators before heading to the filter and amp, each OSC in the GAIA gets its own complete path with its own filter and amp. Very interesting.

            Depends on if you can link the filters or have FM/Sync/ringmod between the oscillators. Otherwise it's like most ROMplers just with VA, non sample based waveforms.

            • 64-voice polyphony? What's the use of that? It doesn't even seem to be multitimbral.

              Also, I'm now guessing this isn't in Korg R3's price range?

                that's the impression I got.. interesting.. can each one be addressed via midi individually? synced would also be a nice option... a wicked option.

                  Tone 1 and 2 can be synced or ring modulated by the looks of the front panel

                    EDIT: Bernard beat me to it.



                    It appears as though you can sync and ringmod Tone 1 with Tone 2.

                      • In that case it looks alright. Like an R3 or MiniAK type synth with a better interface (and likely a bit of a price difference.) Could be fun.

                          • Those Roland's videos are lame. Lots of stupid talk and little actual sounds. And those few sounds that are demonstrated are quite crappy and sound like amateur synthedit VST.

                              • the high polyphony and "variation" waveforms seem reminiscent of the sh-32...
