About Roland Aira

Roland Aira synthesizers and drum machines have been created to offer a forward thinking approach to tried and tested hardware. They are designed to give musicians and producers access to an era of electronic music where computers didn't tie down your music and equipment gave you the ability to create, adlib and tweak on the fly.

Machines like the Aira TR8S, System 8, and TB3 bring a modern approach to classic sounds and utilise Roland Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology to accurately capture the sound and feel of living, breathing instruments. This includes some of Roland’s most revered classics like the JUPITER-8, JUNO-106 and JX-3P synthesizers, TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines, and the TB-303 bass synthesizer.

Whether you're a beginner looking to take your first steps into electronic music production or a synth wizard looking for a powerful way to get some iconic sounds into your setup, Aira is an excellent option.
