Fender Aria

The four highly-anticipated AIRA instruments are now here. Comprised of the TR-08 drum machine, VT-3 Vocal Transformer, TB-3 Touch Bassline, and System-1 Synth, each are based on classic Roland gear.

The instruments are based on Roland’s new ACB (analog circuit behavior); a new modeling technology that emulates analog sound, to bring you a balance of digital versatility and the sound of the original models.

In the video below Manchester music pioneer, Graham Massey, introduces the Roland AIRA TR-8 and TB-3, and tells us a little about the products that inspired them.
