Enhanced by experts
While developing Aerophone Pro, Roland reached out to expert wind players around the globe to see how it could take the Aerophone experience to the next level. Their feedback led to many thoughtful improvements that substantially enhance the instrument's look, feel, sound and playability. The result is a revolutionary wind instrument that gives musicians a highly expressive voice.
With just one look at Aerophone Pro you'll notice the sleek design and premium materials. The shape not only looks great but is thinner and easier to hold for a more confident playing experience. Controls are easy to reach and the streamlined body with aluminum accents exudes an understated-yet-classy appearance. The discrete OLED screen feels like an integral part of the instrument and can be viewed at any angle in any kind of lighting.
Play with passion
Aerophone Pro makes it easy to channel your creativity and lose yourself in the moment. Fingering is the same as an acoustic sax and includes a high-F# key, so you already know how to play it, and configurable controls for both hands and a MIDI input for footswitches greatly expand your performance options. Through extensive research and development, the breath and bite sensors are more responsive and expressive than ever, with low latency and configurable settings to suit your unique playing style.
Authentic brass, woodwinds, strings and more
Aerophone Pro packs an entire brass and woodwind section into a single instrument. Developed closely with professional wind instrument players, there are newly enhanced soprano, alto and tenor saxes, vibrant trumpet sounds and authentic world instruments like the duduk. Roland's SuperNATURAL technology translates every nuance of your playing with lifelike dynamics, articulations and overtones. Multiple custom fingerings are supported, while new controller options enable idiomatic performance techniques on a range of instruments from mainstream to exotic.
Roland's best synthesizer sounds
With Roland's Zen-Core Synthesis System, Aerophone Pro is an immensely capable wind synthesizer. Zen-Core is Roland's latest sound engine that powers flagship synthesizers like Fantom and Jupiter-X; Aerophone Pro features Zen-Core presets crafted by the world's foremost wind synth sound designers. You get everything from vintage analog synth tones to modern hybrid sounds, all with the expression and articulation only a wind instrument can provide.
Take the stage – and the studio
Aerophone Pro enables powerful and expressive performances in any situation. Its robust design and flexible audio and MIDI connections make it perfect for any gig or as the center of a wind controller-based production studio. And with a headphone jack, Bluetooth MIDI, built-in speaker and battery-powered operation, you can pick up and play whenever and wherever inspiration strikes.
Aerophone Pro's powerful onboard editing tools let you personalize sounds on the spot. Even deeper customization is available through the editor app, where you can also manage sound libraries for different playing situations. And with easily selectable scene memories and favorites, you can quickly navigate the vast array of tones and mark them for instant recall.
