Roland SH-01 GAIA - Some 80's patches

Published on Jun 3, 2017 tiergrinder

"Roland GAIA gets lot of bashing and beating at synth forums, but I've always loved mine. I bought it new when it came out, and I've never thought of letting it go. It's relatively cheap, fun to use and it has great interface and controls. Synth engine is good for learing synthesis and GAIA has tons of hidden modulation and soundscape building possibilities under the hood.

This short video shows couple of the first 80's style patches I recreated with GAIA. Brasses and pads emulate Jupiter-8 sounds. Melody at 'Love In A Real Train" emulates Juno-106 type of sound.
Strings around 1:36 emulates Juno-106 chorus strings.

In almost all cases, GAIA was recorded dry without any of the synths internal FX. Gaia's own presets are drowned in effects, I wanted to show how this sounds dry and with external effects."
