Roland Aerophone AE-20 Digital Wind Instrument
Perfect for everyone
The Aerophone's reed-style mouthpiece will feel familiar to experienced woodwind players, whilst its rapid response and natural vibrato control make it highly accessible to total beginners. The highly sensitive breath and bite sensors are customisable, as is the fingering setup. You can configure the fingerings for a number of existing instruments, or personalise the Aerophone and create your own unique layout. Whatever your style, you'll love the seven-octave range and easy transposition options, making it a simple matter to play along to anything.
The AE-20 utilises Roland's SuperNATURAL sound engine to stunningly deliver acoustic sounds such as Alto, Tenor, and Baritone saxophones; flute, trumpet, and clarinet; and even world instruments like the shakuhachi or the bagpipes. The ultra-lifelike SuperNATURAL technology imbues all of these soundsets with realistic overtones, articulations, and dynamics - all carefully derived from your input.
This instrument also uses the ZEN-Core Synthesis System - the same sound engine Roland uses in their flagship keyboard synths. This allows you to experience classic analogue synth sounds, as well as performing with exciting modern digital voices. Every single one of the 260+ preset voices on the Aerophone has been curated to synergise with wind-style dynamics and articulations.
The AE-20 is ideal for live performances, perfect for plugging directly into amps or PA systems. If you want to do some private practice, you can plug in some headphones and take the Aerophone anywhere - making use of the battery power to get about six hours of continuous use out of it! You can even plug into a computer, and use the Aerophone's MIDI data output to control any number of software instruments - making the possibilities for creativity with the AE-20 literally infinite!
