Roland unveils the Gaia SH-01 Synthesizer

Music Hardware : Roland unveils the Gaia SH-01 Synthesizer - macmusicRoland invites you to meet the GAIA SH-01, a 37-key compact synthesizer which combines a classic panel layout reminiscent of vintage Roland synthesizers with the latest in Roland's analog-modeling technology.

Weighing less than 10 pounds, the GAIA SH-01 is lightweight, compact, and great for musicians on the go. The 37-note keyboard is full-size for natural playing, and can be powered via AC or batteries. The GAIA SH-01 is able to create rich, massive sound with three virtual-analog sound engines, each with a dedicated oscillator, filter, amplifier, envelope, and LFO. With 64 polyphonic voices onboard, GAIA makes it possible to play massive sounds without experiencing note drop-out.

The instantly selectable multi-effects of the GAIA SH-01 allow for the layering of up to five simultaneous effects. Onboard effects include reverb, distortion, fuzz, bit crash, flanger, phaser, pitch shifter, low boost, delay with panning, and tempo sync that can be controlled in real-time with the built-in D Beam.

The GAIA SH-01 front panel features dedicated knobs and faders for a variety of parameters, with no hidden menus. GAIA is perfect for learning the signal flow of synthesis, or for creating a dynamic live performance. Along with the included Arpeggiator is the Phrase Recorder, allowing synthesists to record, play back, and play over their recorded phrases.

The GAIA SH-01's EXT input allows for connection and playback of external audio sources such as an MP3 player. Incoming audio can be manipulated with three Center Cancel modes, which let you eliminate pre-recorded vocals, guitar, or bass. GAIA also includes USB ports for transmitting and receiving MIDI data, storing patches and phrases to a memory stick, and recording straight to any computer.

The GAIA SH-01 is scheduled to ship in May with a suggested retail price of $739.00.
