Roland’s New AIRA Line Unleashed: TR-8, TB-3, VT-3 & System-1 – Videos


Roland has been working on a release for their AIRA line of electronic musical equipment, as mentioned in a previous TMG post. Roland launched their new AIRA line at Dancefair 2014 over the weekend (February 15 & 16) according to djworx. The AIRA line contains a drum machine; TR-8 – emulating classic TR-808 & TR-909 sounds, bassline synthesizer; TB-3 – emulating classic TB-303, vocal processor; VT-3, and synthesizer; System-1. At first glance the AIRA line appears to be analog but they’re actually digital hardware emulating analog devices, by way of Roland’s new technology called Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB). For those who can’t get their hands on old Roland gear such as the TR-808, TR-909, and the TB-303 (due to lack of availability or the expensive price tag these classic machines now hold) the AIRA line comes as a more accessible, and less expensive alternative. Below are some videos demonstrating the technology, features, and possible applications of Roland’s new AIRA line of electronic musical equipment.
