Roland AE-10 Aerophone Digital Saxophone

In the studio and on stage, your trusty acoustic sax is always by your side. But if you work across a range of musical genres, imagine how useful it would be to own a single wind instrument that delivers every sound that's required. The Roland Aerophone AE-10 is a trailblazing digital wind instrument that fuses traditional sax fingering with the flexible onboard tones you need. Seasoned players will feel instantly at home with the familiar saxophone fingering system, responsive SuperNATURAL sounds, and a breath sensor that reacts like your favorite acoustic horn. The large sound selection faithfully recreates saxophone models from soprano to baritone, plus wind instruments like clarinet and trumpet, string instruments, and even synths. With built-in speakers, battery power capability, and DAW connectivity, the Roland Aerophone AE-10 is the versatile, play-anywhere choice that supports you in every musical scenario.

Start Playing Immediately with Traditional Sax Fingering and a Responsive Breath Sensor
You've worked hard to nail your sax technique, but most digital horns make you master a new fingering system, which can be a major setback. With the Roland Aerophone AE-10, it's a smooth transition, thanks to a layout that's similar to your favorite acoustic sax--right down to the left-hand octave key. Plus, the AE-10 has a sensitive mouthpiece-mounted breath sensor that also functions as a bite sensor, allowing expressive techniques like vibrato and pitch. Even beginners will be able to enjoy playing the various onboard sounds straight away.

All the Saxophone Sounds You Need in One Instrument

Nothing beats the sound of your favorite acoustic sax, but sometimes its tone might not be quite right for the job at hand. Whatever scenario you're playing in, the Roland Aerophone AE-10 has the onboard digital sax sounds you need. Choose from alto, tenor, soprano, and baritone sax types that all respond just like their acoustic counterparts to your playing dynamics and articulation, thanks to Roland's advanced SuperNATURAL modeling technology. Alongside individual sounds, you can pull off a seamless performance with the Full Range feature, automatically switching between sax types by key range.

A Variety of Realistic Acoustic Instruments and Roland's Award-Winning Synths

There's nothing worse than a studio session grinding to a halt because you need an instrument that you haven't brought along. That won't happen with the Roland Aerophone AE-10, which gives you a variety of additional acoustic instrument sounds like clarinet, flute, oboe, trumpet, violin, and more, all powered by Roland's SuperNATURAL technology.

Features:

- Digital wind instrument with flexible onboard sounds
- Fingering compatible with an acoustic saxophone

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Aerophone Takes It to the Next Level!"
Overall: I opened the box, plugged in the included power supply, put on the neck strap, turned the unit on and started playing the soprano model right away. I played 2 worship songs. I love that the sounds have that "threatened" off pitch drift like a real sax. The mouth piece is very responsive and the growl/pitchbend/portamento lever on the back right thumb, allows you to drift off into a "mutant sax" sound if you wish. I am an EWI player since 2012. Before that I was strictly Yamaha WX11 since the 1990's and a retro fitted Casio DH before that. This Aerophone is the most advanced layout and physical model setup unless you are going to buy the actual sax controller (I forget the name of it). I love my EWI5000. I won't be giving it up. But I will no longer play the EWI tethered to my Mac Air running Samplemodeling's The Saxophones. I will use the EWI for EWI type sounds in the future and the flute. But the Aerophone has good enough sax modeling sounds that I can leave the Mac Air home. I will probably keep the Samplemodeling home in the studio. I ordered a wireless unit for the Aerophone and will be wireless on both (Batteries in the Aerophone). The Aerophone BLOWS the EWI away on pure sax fingering. The Aerophone has 21 keys up top laid out like a sax. The EWI has 13 top keys. Playing a scale and being able to lift my left forefinger for instant high octave is a breath of fresh air. You can do the same on the EWI with octave rollers but it's not quite the same as the real sax fingering. I started playing the sax first before I switched to all electronic wind instruments. The Aerophone resonates with me better than any instrument and I have only had the unit 5 days. I will be editing the controllers. But out of the box? This thing is impressive! Nice job Roland and shout out to zZounds for Pay as You Play! It is the BEST in the industry!
