Product Description

GAIA 2’s newly developed sound engine puts a never-ending realm of tonal exploration under your fingers. Build familiar sounds inspired by past and present synth icons. Then dive into unique phase and shape modulation tools to unleash cutting-edge textures with complex overtones that can’t be expressed with traditional analog synths. Need something more extreme? Just crank the Drive knob in the multimode filter section for even more grit and power. Whatever you desire—from smooth tones reminiscent of vintage synths to edgy, biting leads to sci-fi soundscapes—GAIA 2 can do it.

Key Features:

  • Harness the power of USB-C:
    Gaia 2 comes outfitted with an audio interface built in. Regardless of where you are you can record the Gaia 2 into a computer or mobile device with a single cable, no need to search for an audio interface, record your idea quickly.
  • Touch the Sound:
    GAIA 2’s logical workflow makes sound creation fast, easy, and fun. The one-control-per-function panel layout enables instant programming without having to resort to creativity-killing menu diving. And with the streamlined knobs and white anodized aluminium panel, even the look is inspiring. Wait until you see how it glows under stage lighting!
  • SH-101:
    With GAIA 2’s pre-installed SH-101 Model Expansion, the monophonic legend is reborn as a polysynth with new and exciting possibilities. Since its release in 1982, the small-but-mighty SH-101 has been a key ingredient in shaping electronic music and remains a favorite for its intuitive interface and head-turning sounds.
  • Models:
    With the Roland Cloud, you also have access to a library of legendary instruments such as the historic Roland Jupiter-8, Juno 106 and JX-8P, these models can be loaded into the Gaia 2 to be used without a computer, with an optional WC-1 Roland Cloud Connect USB Adapter you can also load these from your smart device to your Gaia 2
