With its ability to triple-stack analogue wave-forms and then process that sound through up to 5 effects at once. The Roland SH01 Gaia synth creates a massive sound. Combine this with ease of use and features reminiscent of the classic 60s 70s and 80s.

GAIA SH-01: Synthesizer

Flash Back, Flash Forward

With its massive sound, hands-on ease and affordable price, the GAIA SH-01 is a high-performance value synth with old school charm. The triple stacked engine puts potent virtual analogue synthesis at your fingertips, yet the control panel is fun, friendly, and inviting, so 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 sounds make this little powerhouse a joy for music students, songwriters, session players, and live performers of all styles and ability levels.

  • Huge sound with three virtual analogue 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
  • Lightweight, compact body with 37 full-size keys
  • Runs on AC or battery power for portable convenience
  • D Beam, arpeggiator, and Phrase Recorder onboard
  • USB ports for saving user patches to USB flash drives, and for audio/MIDI connection to computers

    Triple-fat virtual analogue

    Sink your teeth into the 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 synthesizers in one! With 64 polyphonic voices onboard, the GAIA SH-01 makes it possible to play massive sounds without experiencing note drop out.

    Stackable effects

    From the silkiest reverb to the grittiest growl, the SH-01's instantly selectable multi-effects will catapult your sounds into another dimension. You can layer up to five simultaneous effects for dozens of variations. The onboard effects 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.

    Portable power

    At less than 10 pounds (approx. 4 kg / 9 lbs), the GAIA SH-01 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 synth can be 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. When used in conjunction with a battery-powered amp such as Roland's CUBE Street, MOBILE CUBE, BA-330 or KC-110, the GAIA SH-01 can be played and heard anywhere!

    *Can be powered by eight rechargeable Ni-MH AA batteries.


    Instant control

    The front panel puts every control directly under your fingertips. There are no hidden menus you can just play. And 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. 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 and let the arpeggiator create musical magic automatically for you. The tempo can be set via tap tempo. 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 and EXT IN

    Connect directly to a computer (Mac or PC) with one simple USB cable, and stream audio directly to the software of your choice. The 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 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. Manipulate the incoming audio with three Center Cancel modes, which let you eliminate pre-recorded vocals, guitars, or bass.

    Yamaha CSP150-WH Piano


    Super personalised service, Steve was so helpful, passionate and knowledgable and couldn't do anymore for us to help us get the best out of the product, detailed explanations and set up was brilliant, and well worth paying just that little bit more for. We would have no doubt made a real hash of it ourselves!

    Roland FP10-B Piano


    Fantastic service. I was desperate to get a piano but then lockdown happened so I wasn't able to 'test drive' any. I had done my research but at entry level I wasn't quite sure what to buy, I could easily have been led to buy something that did more than I needed, and spend more than was necessary, but with Steve' good honest advise he sold me what I needed and nothing more, saving me money and my new piano is perfect.

    They were extremely helpful and gave a number of options regarding my subsequent purchase. Two of the items were delivered in a timely fashion, the third item has been delayed due to circumstances outside their control.But they have kept me updated regarding a possible delivery date.
