Roland Releases FREE Aira System-1 Sound Banks

Published: Mon March 23, 2015  News Feed
Since it was released, the Roland Aira System-1 has become one of the most versatile and forward-thinking synths around: full of great vintage sounds, but with great, innovative features - a digital synth that can perfectly emulate the sound of vintage analog synthesizers, but which can also be loaded with many different sounds.Now, with the release of three new, FREE sound banks, System-1 offers even more!

Aira System-1 free 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!

SOUND BANK VOLUME 1



Includes 8 new sounds including thick pads, leads, arps and atmospheres. Use the Filter and ADSR controls to customize the sounds to your taste. Customize the arps using Scatter and Arpeggio controls.

AIRA SYSTEM-1 Sound Bank Volume 1 includes the following sounds:

• Patch #1: Space Machine - Pitched intro with LFO driven rhythm.
