All the sounds you need in one instrument
Nothing beats the sound of your favorite acoustic sax, but sometimes its tone might not be quite right for the job at hand. Whatever scenario you’re playing in, the Roland Aerophone AE-10 has the onboard digital sax sounds you need. Choose from alto, tenor, soprano, and baritone sax types that all respond just like their acoustic counterparts to your playing dynamics and articulation, thanks to Roland’s advanced SuperNATURAL modeling technology. Alongside individual sounds, you can pull off a seamless performance with the Full Range feature, automatically switching between sax types by key range.

A variety of realistic acoustic instruments and Roland’s award-winning synths
There’s nothing worse than a studio session grinding to a halt because you need an instrument that you haven’t brought along. That won’t happen with the Roland Aerophone AE-10, which gives you a variety of additional acoustic instrument sounds like clarinet, flute, oboe, trumpet, violin, and more, all powered by Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology to faithfully match the behavior of the originals. Even ethnic instruments like shakuhachi and erhu are on hand, offering authentic pitch and tonal fluctuations that echo their acoustic counterparts.

Once you’ve tried the individual sounds, you can create one-man ensembles by layering multiple wind instrument sounds with the Brass Section setting. The AE-10 is also packed with a selection of the latest synth sounds that are specially tailored for wind instrument performance with fully optimized breath control.

Play anywhere with onboard speakers, battery power, and headphones
Wherever and whenever you play, the portable and lightweight Roland Aerophone AE-10 is ready. Six AA batteries provide mobile power, and onboard monitor speakers deliver comfortable sound for intimate performing situations. You also have the ability to directly connect to a PA or amp for broader coverage, eliminating the need to use a mic. When you need to cover large instruments like tuba and bassoon, the battery-powered Roland CUBE Street EX is a great companion, giving you big sound in a portable package.

Playing sessions are even more fun when you connect to your smartphone via the Aerophone AE-10’s stereo mini jack and jam along with favorite songs. And thanks to the headphones option, you can play around the clock without disturbing family members and neighbors.

Breath control brings unique expressive possibilities to your music productions
While the Roland Aerophone AE-10 is a powerful standalone instrument, it also lets you get creative with external gear. You can connect to your computer via USB to play soft synths and external MIDI sound modules through your DAW, with breath control providing a world of unique expression not possible with keyboard synthesizers.

Jam with favorite tunes on your smartphone
Playing sessions are even more fun when you connect a smartphone or music player to jam along with favorite songs. Your device connects to the stereo mini-jack input on the Aerophone AE-10, and plays through the onboard monitor speakers or connected headphones.

I would buy the aerophone again


I love the versatility of this instrument



I dont know if i would buy this again if it were to break


Fun instrument.



Great addition to my arsenal


I play saxophone professionally in Las Vegas and the addition of this instrument to my arsenal will defiantly get me more work. So happy with this product



Nicely made and makes authentic instrument sounds.


It's used to perform with and record music with. Great Instrument!





The Roland Aerophone AE-10 is a great addition to any sax player's arsenal. With the AE-10, your experience on the saxophone transfers directly to a wide variety of sounds. The unit is programmable through your cell phone or tablet. Roland has done a great job of posting instructional Youtube videos for advanced users. But it is also immediately useful out of the box with ample factory sound settings. I researched the AE-10 prior to this purchase, then went looking for a vendor. Sam Ash had the best price by far, and with professional service and a reasonable return policy, I knew I could buy with confidence.

What a terrific and unique instrument. I love it.


I have found it fairly simple to learn, and there are a lot of good videos online describing how to use it.
