Overview

An all-in-one synthesizer bundle with legendary sounds.

The Roland AIRA bundle includes the AIRA Compact S-1, T-8, J-6 and a protective slip cover to ensure your gear stays safe.

AIRA Compact S-1
The Roland AIRA Compact S-1 is a portable ACB polysynth with onboard controls for oscillators, filter, ADSR envelope and effects. An ACB on overdrive, this tweak synth offers OSC Drawing for creating custom waveforms, OSC Chop with Overtone and Comb for powerful harmonics. Create with inspiring performance tools like D-Motion, Step Loop, Arpeggio, jammable transposition and Riser, as well as advanced programming options like a 64-step sequencer with Velocity, Gate Length, Sub Steps, Motion Recording, Probability and more. This versatile unit works as a standalone synth, a sequencer or even as a compact MIDI controller transmitting notes as well as CC messages. A lithium-ion battery delivers up to 4.5 hours of operation on a single charge.

AIRA T-8 Beat Machine
Create infectious tracks in seconds flat with the Roland AIRA Compact T-8 Beat Machine, a miniature rhythm factory loaded with legendary Roland TR drums, plus bass from the inimitable TB-303. Craft on-the-fly acid jams or trap bangers with the intuitive 16-step sequencer, shape sounds with onboard controls—and flip and dice beats with hands-on tools that stimulate ideas and put the fun back into your flow. Build beats with the boom, pop and sizzle of sounds from the TR-808, TR-909 and TR-606 drum machines, paired with the shapeshifting low end of the dynamic TB-303 Bass Line. The T-8 exudes classic Roland character, thanks to the same Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) tech found in the TR-8S, TB-3 and other high-end AIRA gear.

AIRA J-6 Chord Synthesizer
The Roland AIRA Compact J-6 Chord Synthesizer is an endless well of musical inspiration, pairing a powerful chord sequencer with the lavish tones of the renowned JUNO-60 synth. Generate soul-stirring song ideas in seconds, and experiment with styles and variations to coax dancing lines and rhythmic patterns from your chords. Add lush effects to frost your sound, and expand your possibilities by interfacing with other AIRA Compacts, MIDI hardware and music production software. With 100 chord sets spanning a wide range of genres, you’ll always find fresh fuel for songs and jams with the Compact J-6. There’s no need to know chords or theory to make cool music—simply call up a set and compose chord progressions on the fly with one-touch presses on the keyboard. Generate ideas for new tunes, create accompaniment for live performances or send chord information to other MIDI gear.
