Amazing Gaia!!

Asterios, 04.09.2017
This is an amazing virtual-analog synth!!
This is not a "nice toy" (like a reviewer wrote here) but a serious old-fashioned synth! If you're used to modern screen-menu diving based synths with hunderds factory-ready presets and no need to design your own presets, then you may not like this synth, BUT if you'd like to learn how to program a synth with no hidden screen menus (like the good old times) and be able to make almost every sound you imagine, in a clear-visible way, then try this synth! Maybe it's for you!

I have already some modern synths (with deep menu diving screens, etc) but Gaia is really unique!! I guess it may be my favorite synth!!

Pros:
Amazing old-school interface & sounds!
Triple-stacked engine (like 3 synths in one!)
Hands-on control with logically arranged knobs, sliders, and buttons!
High-performance value!
Nice price (from Thomann!)

Cons:
The only con (for me) is that I would like to see a little screen, just to name-organize my presets-sounds, but due to the nature of Gaia (old-school synth) I understand it!

All in all, highly recommended, if you like old-school synths with no menu diving!!

Nice Toy

Sjoerd W., 08.01.2014
This thing is ok, but I find it a hassle programming three synth layers using the hardware. Easier through the software, and also to save patches etc. I later bought an Access Virus and with hindsight I could have done without the SH-01 because it is mostly just gathering dust now.
