The AIRA SYSTEM-1 is a synthesizer unlike any other, breaking 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.

For over 30 years, Roland’s modular and semi-modular synthesizers set the pace for innovation in their unique ability to combine a broad spectrum of great sounds with practicality and versatility, making them the first choice for producers and artists on the top of the charts

What's Old is New
Roland’s new System 1 Synth utilizes Analog Circuit Behavior technology (ACB) to analyze the original analog circuits that created these great synths, recreated their sounds with painstaking accuracy and integrated them side-by-side with within the technology of SYSTEM-1.

PLUG OUT with plug-ins
Integrating decades of amazing and different Synth Technology into one system may be complicated, but Roland succeeded and you get to enjoy the easy part.  Along with the fresh, new fusion in an advanced, but friendly keyboard package, accurate software recreations of classic Roland synths have been created to work with SYSTEM-1. Plug-in versions of now legendary Roland synths, can be hosted in the SYSTEM-1 itself, with or without a computer. You can even switch between the internal sounds of SYSTEM-1’s and sounds from the plug-in.

    This is an awesome synth for the price. I've been messing around with it at a friend's house and am probably going to pick one up for myself. It's got an insane amount of sound options and stuff I've never heard in a synth before, plus all of the classic sounds. This is great for anyone producing electronic music.
