Roland Releases FREE Aira System-1 Sound Banks
The great thing aboutthe Aira System-1 being a "plug out synth" is that it's truly a "gift that keeps giving" - you're not just buying one single hardware synth, but in fact, the possibility of owning many different synths, in one sleek package.
There are many great analog synths available today, but despite the fact Roland themselves have created some of the most revered analog synths in the past, they decided to take a totally new approach with Aira: rather than recreating the past, Roland opted for a modern, innovative synth than can also be leaded with vintage sounds. And so, the System-1 plug out synth was born.
After offering (for purchase) the sounds of legendary SH-101, SH2 and ProMars synthesizers as software synths to be loaded on to System-1, which already made it one of the best value synths around, now Roland offers three great sound banks as FREE download on their website - simply a must for Aira System-1 owners and owners-to-be!
