the Roland Aira Scooper EFX Module is a unique modular effect that utitlises a single-pass loop recorder and Scatter effect to sample, mangle, degrade and glitch captured loops of incoming audio. Thanks to the intuitive top panel, you can independently control the Scatter type and depth, pitch, filter, sync trigger to create some really warped audio.
The Aira Scooper has connectivity for 2 inputs and 2 outputs meaning you can also run it in stereo if required. A built in 24bit/96kHz audio interface for Eurorack systems and AIRA Link USB compatibility gives the Scooper single-cable, plug and play connectivity with the Roland Aira MX-1 Mix Performer.
The Roland Aira Scooper gives you crushing audio power out of the box, but you may want to change the signal path more to your liking. You can do this with the PC and Mac compatible custom app by re-patching its array of virtual sub-modules.
You can even do this via the Android and iOS apps using an intuitive drag and drop interface. This means you can choose which parameters are assigned to the high-resolution “GRF” knobs.
All this can be done in real time too for on the fly performance and should you wish to share your audio signal, you can do so with other Scooper users, or simply store your setting for later use.
Future proof expansion
The Aira Scooper includes a total of 15 virtual sub-modules (as of April 2015) but as time marches on, this will be expanded making this an evolving unit that will grow with you and your music.
To date the sub modules include LFO, ADSR, noise, sample and hold, ring mod, filter, tone, amp, gate and many more. Whatever your set-up, be it in the studio or on stage, the Roland Aira Scooper EFX Module will give you with a raw way to mess up and modernise your music.
