We were recently lucky enough to be joined by superstar DJs/producers, Huxley, Tom Demac, Urulu and Zoo Look in our pro-music superstore in Bournemouth (CLICK HERE to find us). The occasion? Roland's new AIRA TB-3 and TR-8 units were all set up and ready to demo! Check out what they thought of them in the video below.
We recently received some very special packages from Roland... but what could they be? In fact, it felt like Christmas had come early (and not just because of the way they were wrapped(!)), because we had been sent Roland AIRA TB-3, TR-8 and VT-3 modules to place on demo in our pro-music superstore.
Each unit is now up and running and available to try in store (CLICK HERE to find us), so feel free to pop in!
After all those teases, we finally know what the Airas are! In fact, we have a confession to make... some of us have known for a while and have even got to hear and play them! Unfortunately for the rest of us, those people were bound by a strict contract that meant that they had to keep schtum until the official announcement... but that's now here!
So, the Aira line-up consists of the TR-8, which brings together the sounds of the TR-808 and TR-909 rhythm machines in one easy-to-use unit; the TB-3, which gives you the classic sound of the Roland TB-303 bass synth; the VT-3, which is a compact vocal transformer for adding electronic effects to your voice in realtime and finally; the System-1, which can be loaded with your choice of soft-synth sounds in order to model a selection of classic Roland instruments (including the SH-101), as well as featuring its own, unique synth engine.
