Roland’s new Aira Compact line puts TR drums, 303 bass lines and Juno synth sounds in your pocket

Roland’s Aira line of instruments expands once again with the launch of three ‘compact’ instruments that build on the company’s rich heritage: the T-8 Beat Machine; J-6 chord synthesizer; and E-4 Voice Tweaker.

It can be difficult to determine what distinguishes an Aira product from a standard Roland product – the Aira microsite, for example, features the TR-8S drum machine but not the TR-6S, its lightweight close cousin – but it is quite clear what the Compact range consists of.
