What we say:
At A Glance:
The Roland Aerophone Pro AE-30 is a powerful electronic wind instrument designed with professional players in mind. With a saxophone compatible layout and a huge selection of sounds courtesy of Roland's SuperNATURAL and Zen-Core sound engines, the AE-30 has everything you'll need for any gig or session!
Features We Love:
The Aerophone Pro features an adjustable fingering layout that matches your flute, clarinet or saxophone, and even features a high-F# key. It feels just as comfortable as your acoustic instrument, but brings extra expressivity thanks to a motion sensor and customisable controls for each hand, plus there is the ability to add footswitches to further enhance your experience.
With acoustic instruments sampled in high-quality audio, SuperNATURAL gives you a full and rich tone that only acoustic instruments possess. However, while most manufacturers settle for giving you purely sample-based sounds, Roland recognised that there is still something lacking from an acoustic instrument sampled at different velocities.
The subtle characteristics created from moving parts and harmonics resonating as air passes through the instrument create a much bigger picture than what's captured with audio sampling. These intricate characteristics have been synthetically recreated to enhance the character of each voice and the result is a rich and organic tone that's full of character and charm.
ZEN-Core is a powerful synthesizer engine that taps into decades of research and development by Roland. With perfectly recreated versions of classic Roland gear, as well as new creations, ZEN-Core will quickly become an essential part of your studio and stage sound. ZEN-Core is unique in that it works both as a plugin in your music software package and in your Aerophone. This means you can write and record a song in your DAW, then take the exact same sounds to the stage with you.
The Aerophone Pro is fully customisable and sculpting sounds and managing your libraries and scenes is easy work with the Aerophone editor app.
