Triple-Fat Virtual Analogue
Sink your teeth into the Roland GAIA SH-01's new triple stacked virtual analogue engine, comprising three complete synths for incredibly thick, powerful sound. Unleash the beef of three oscillators which drive a trio of multimode, resonant filters, multi-shape LFOs, and amplifiers, plus nine envelope generators. It's like having three synthesisers in one! With 64 polyphonic voices onboard, the Roland GAIA SH-01 makes it possible to play massive sounds without experiencing note drop out.
From the silkiest reverb to the grittiest growl, the Roland GAIA SH-01's instantly selectable multi-effects will catapult your sounds into another dimension, as you can layer up to five simultaneous effects for dozens of variations. The onboard effects of the Roland GAIA SH-01 include reverb, distortion, fuzz, bit crash, flanger, phaser, pitch shifter, low boost, and delay with panning and tempo sync. Dedicated control knobs are provided for tweaking the effects in real time.
At less than 10 pounds (approx. 4 kg / 9 lbs), the Roland GAIA SH-01 synth is lightweight, compact, and great for musicians on the go. However, the 37-note keyboard is full-size, so performers can play naturally and comfortably. The Roland GAIA SH-01 synth can be also powered via AC or batteries* for the ultimate in portable convenience. A battery-life indicator on the front panel ensures that you won't lose power unexpectedly, and when used in conjunction with a battery-powered amp such as Roland's CUBE Street, MOBILE CUBE, BA-330 or KC-110, the Roland GAIA SH-01 can be played and heard anywhere!
* Can be powered by eight rechargeable Ni-MH AA batteries.
The front panel of the Roland GAIA SH-01 puts every control directly at your fingertips, and there are no hidden menus. Move the knobs and sliders, or wave your hands over the invisible D Beam for dramatic effects. The logically designed front panel shows the signal path from left to right, and so it helps beginners understand synthesis, while experienced players will love the instant gratification of hands-on control during performance.
Phrase Recorder And Arpeggiator
Hold a note or chord on the Roland GAIA SH-01 and let the arpeggiator create musical magic automatically for you. The tempo can be set via tap tempo, and in addition, the onboard Phrase Recorder lets you record what you play on the keyboard as well as the movements of the knobs and sliders. The controller data can also be played back independently to complement the notes you play in real time!
USB Aand EXT IN
Connect the Roland GAIA SH-01 directly to a computer (Mac or PC) with one simple USB cable, and stream audio directly to the software of your choice. The GAIA SH-01's USB ports can also be used to transmit and receive MIDI data, and to store your patches and phrases (recorded with the Phrase Recorder) to a USB memory stick. For integrating with external devices, the Roland GAIA SH-01's EXT input lets you connect external audio sources such as an MP3-player and play along with your favourite songs or backing tracks, making it great for practice and live performance. You can even manipulate the incoming audio with three Center Cancel modes, which let you eliminate pre-recorded vocals, guitars, or bass.
