Because people are stupider than you Stab, but who are you to deny them that stupidy? I say let the silly men dance!
Moog LP + Casio SK1 and MT-75 + tube amp = good tone.

Roland themselves say "specifications subject to change"
Yes they print that in manuals

Just a caveat,

"we'll do what we like when we like, whether you like it on not"
Dont bother its not worth it!

nice feature set and pulls a few tricks the SH-201 can't.

~ $750 USD / 500 GBP according to that vid

that is a bit high for synth that pretty much sounds like exactly like it's Roland VA predecessors that are going on ebay for peanuts.

$750:

waldorf blofeld + beers

Waldorf Microwave + beers

Yamaha EX5

DSI Tetra

Korg MS 2000 + other choice

Alesis ION + beers

MC 909 + beers



I can keep on listing deals under or equal $800 that sound or look better than getting the Gaia, this stuff must make my breakfast in order to consider it a reliable investment, because it does not offer anything attractive. .

I must admit I like a lot the combination of sliders-knobs, it 's provided with lots of controllers.

oo


This new synth looks a lot like my CASIO MT-70 (circa 1982) . . .

. . . and this new synth is probably just as sonically powerful!

:D

Well, i'd like to see a video where somebody compares it to a JP-8080 side by side.
I'd like to hear it personally :]

And the SH-01 has more polyphony than most of those you listed...

Jeez, complaining about price. Maybe a person buying this would't want any of those synths.... Thats saying "well I won't price my Honda at this price because they could by a pickup at a lower price. So because they could by a racked wavetable synth used for a little less that means thats a better option? Same with a MC-909... totally different...

It looks extremely sexy.
I think 64 polyphony is great improvement too.

I am not sure whether to categorize this under the entry level synth along with microkorg and micron even though Roland considers it to be a beginner synth. The price is quite up there and its features are rich.

Do you really need 64 voices on a non-multitimbral synth though? Or is the GM engine part of that polyphony number?

Holy f**k, at least they put out an actual synthesizer and not another f**k workstation.
This is obviously aimed at people who are kinda just getting into subtractive synthesis.

I highly doubt anyone who has been using this forum for a long time will be buying this. With that said, I think it sounds alright, and I could make some sounds that would kill on it.
