Roland AIRA 25-Key Modeling Synthesizer with Plug-In Hosting and USB Audio/MIDI

Back in the 1970s, Roland launched System 100, 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.  Over the years, they've been put to great use by visionary artists on countless classic tracks.

Modern vintage
Meet Roland System-1, a synthesizer probably unlike any you've encountered before. Like its predecessors, System-1 breaks new ground with remarkable flexibility and access to a vast palette of synthesized sounds with the bold and unmistakable character associated with Roland synthesizers for nearly four decades.

At the heart of System-1's sound is Roland's Analog Circuit Behavior technology (ACB), which Roland uses to carefully analyze every aspect of analog circuits and then faithfully recreate them down to the finest details. This technology fills System-1 with a fusion of beautifully classic and utterly modern synthesizer tones. Sound good?

There's more
System-1 can control and even host software recreations of classic Roland synthesizers including SH-101, SH-2 and ProMars. That's right, System-1 can control plug-in versions of now legendary Roland synths, and those same plug-ins can be hosted in System-1 itself with no computer required. You can even switch between System-1's internal sounds and those of the hosted plug-in. Roland calls this wizardry 'Plug-Out.'

System-1 not only sounds amazing, but it also has a totally innovative design with performance-ready controls, quality construction and a dizzying array of lights and knobs and sliders that proclaim – unashamedly – 'I am synthesizer. Hear me roar.'
