At the 2014 NAMM Show, Roland’s Brandon Ryan gave us a sneak preview of their new AIRA line, which features four new pieces of gear:
- The AIRA TR-8 Rhythm Performer – a $499 drum machine;
- The AIRA TB-3 Touch Bassline – a $299 bassline synth;
- The AIRA VT-3 Voice Transformer – a $199 vocal effects processor and vocoder; and
- The AIRA System-1 Plug-Out Synthesizer – a $599 virtual analog synthesizer that can transform into a variety of classic synth, and act as a hardware controller for a new line of software synthesizers.
In the video, Ryan gives an overview of the line, talks about Roland’s new Analog Circuit Behavior modeling technology, and gave us a quick demo of the new gear.
