Roland's AIRA series brings your drums, synths, and vocal processing off the computer screen and back into your hands, offering a tactile experience that cannot be recreated "in the box." AIRA instruments capture the magic of vintage drum machines and synths while offering the performance, flexibility, and sound quality that today's electronic musicians demand. Computers dominate the production and composition world today because of their superior performance, reliability, and sound design capabilities. However, interacting with a computer can also be less-than-inspirational.
The goal of AIRA is to pair modern computing technology with the sonic character and analog circuit response of traditional analog hardware. Thanks to Roland's Analog Circuit Behavior technology, these instruments deliver the sound and performance of the famed original units -- and they're capable of more modern sounds, too, giving you a wide range of sonic options. AIRA allows you to be more creative than ever before, by getting your face out of the computer screen to connect with the instrument in your hands. This enhanced tactile control doesn't compromise the workflow benefits of computer sequencing -- you have the best of both worlds in your hands!
Step out of the box, but don't step out of the way -- AIRA is the new platform for modern electronic music creation.
