Roland AIRA SYSTEM-1 Keyboard Synthesizer


Travel back to the future with the Roland AIRA SYSTEM-1 Keyboard Synthesizer - a synth loaded with character, controls, and PLUG-OUT capability.  At the heart of the AIRA System-1's sound is Roland's new Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB), a technology which was used to intricately analyse the sonic aspects of iconic analog circuitry down to the finest details.  The System-1 breaks new ground by offering access to a vast palette of tones and effects from Roland Synthesizers of the past, combined with inspiring new functionality from the digital age.


    • ROLAND AIRA SYSTEM-1 PRODUCT FEATURES:

      • -12 dB and -24 dB filter types with independent high-pass filters
      • Tone knob for easy tonal balancing
      • Crusher knob for modern edge

      Back in the 1970s, Roland launched the SYSTEM 100, SYSTEM 100M, and the now almost mythical SYSTEM 700. These modular and semi-modular synthesizers are heralded to this day for their flexibility and character of sound. In the spirit of its predecessors, the SYSTEM-1 breaks new ground with remarkable flexibility and access to a vast palette of tones with the bold, unmistakable character associated with Roland synthesizers for nearly four decades.
