Roland Aira System 1 demo

Lot of background noise, but sounds kinda nice, really. All those lights are actually functional; they’ll go off when you’re using a “plug out” that doesn’t support that specific control. Still weird that the keyboard isn’t velocity sensitive.

Oh, and there’s a funny bit around the 6 minute mark where the dude has no idea what “audio rate” means in relation to the LFO speed… :wink:

Keyboard looks like a bigger version of that one in my Casio PT-10…

No velocity because the key mechanism is very limited travel (cheap).

The Roland people actually took a TB-303 and a SH-101 with them and it looks like they’re also going to sell a “sync box” that does MIDI-to-CV and analogue sync:
