Roland’s new Aira Compact puts TR drums, 303 bass lines and Juno sounds in your pocket

Roland's new Aira Compact puts TR drums, 303 bass lines and Juno sounds in your pocket

Roland’s Aira toolkit is further expanded with the release of three “compact” instruments based on the company’s rich heritage: the T-8 Beat Machine; J-6 Chord Pronunciation Machine; and the E-4 Voice Tweaker.

It can be hard to tell what sets an Aira product apart from a standard Roland product – the Aira mini, for example, features a TR-8S drum machine but not the TR-6Sits skinny close cousin—but it’s pretty clear what the Compact is all about.
