Roland’s new Aira Compact range puts TR drums, 303 basslines and Juno synth sounds in your pocket

Roland’s Aira instrument range is being expanded once again with the launch of three ‘Compact’ instruments that draw 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 work out what distinguishes an Aira product from a standard Roland one – the Aira microsite, for example, features the TR-8S drum machine but not the TR-6S, its slimmed-down close cousin – but it’s pretty clear what the Compact range is all about.
