GAIA description:

The GAIA Synthesizer Sound Designer is a Windows/Mac software application specially designed for Roland’s award-winning GAIA SH-01 Synthesizer. It inspires creativity by allowing GAIA users to conveniently explore and adjust every tone parameter via a large and friendly computer-based user interface. The software can also record and play back the entire sound-creation process, step by step, with its unique Action List function. Furthermore, the Wave Viewer displays each waveform as a graph for visual reference. Beginners and pros alike will appreciate this powerful and inspiring application, as will music educators who teach synthesizer programming.

  • Control every GAIA SH-01 tone parameter on a computer (Windows or Mac)
  • Action List lets you record and play back the entire sound-creation process, step by step
  • Wave Viewer display allows waveform shape to be viewed as a graph
  • New GAIA SH-01 patches included, plus Action-List samples for learning the fundamentals of synthesis



GAIA Synthesizer Sound Designer software lets GAIA SH-01 users directly access all of the tone parameters via Mac or PC on the computer’s large display. The user-friendly interface makes creating GAIA sounds fast and easy. It’s also ideal way for GAIA users to learn the instrument in an graphical format.


To use GAIA Synthesizer Sound Designer, simply connect your GAIA directly to the computer of your choice, Mac or PC, via a single, convenient USB cable.


GAIA Synthesizer Sound Designer provides a unique way to analyse the creative process with its Action List function, which records and plays back sound-design operations step by step. It’s a fantastic way to explore and learn.


The Wave Viewer display function provides a graphical representation of the sound. Viewing waveforms in this visual format helps users see the sound as it evolves — a great tool for students of synth programming.


GAIA Synthesizer Sound Designer comes with a bank of new GAIA patches. Keyboardists will appreciate the brilliant collection of sounds that covers a wide range of modern styles. Action-List samples are also provided to help users learn the fundamentals of synthesis.

Customer Reviews


As the only dedicated patch editor/librarian it is now discontinued with no support from Roland. It is not compatible with Apple OSX after 10.7 (specifications have not been updated on product or on the website information). It only works with Windows versions 7 - 10 now.
As this Synth requires a lot of multiple button pressing errors can happen disastrously so visualising you patch adjustments helps greatly so sadly yet again the long term support strategies kick in. Synthesizers last decades so software changes are a must for users new and second hand, it wouldn't have been so bad if they had turned it into an APP that was easily updated. I had hope for help from Roland via email but all they said it was an Apple fault for changes to types of software they allow to run on OSX.
