Product Information

A groundbreaking new synthesizer, the Roland AIRA SYSTEM-1 gives remarkable, flexible access to a vast palette of synthesised sounds with the bold, unmistakable character associated with Roland synths for nearly four decades.

New Roland Analog Circuit Behaviour technology has been used to carefully analyse every detail of the analog circuits in the SYSTEM synths and fully recreates them down to the finest details. This technology fills the SYSTEM 1 with a fusion of cherished classic and utterly modern synthesizer tones.

Plug In, Plug Out

It doesn't stop at the ACB technology. The Roland SYSTEM-1 can even host software recreations of classic Roland synths, on the system itself, with no computer required! Switch between the SYSTEM-1 internal sounds and the hosted plug-in. This technology is called 'Plug Out'.

Nobody could make a better plug-in version of a Roland synth than Roland. The AIRA SYSTEM-1 will allow you to experience the superior authenticity of legendary synths, such as the SH-101, through software. SYSTEM-1 provides an intuitive and fully automatic one-to-one control interface that really works.

The SYSTEM-1 integrates seamlessly with the other products in the Roland AIRA Series, can receive MIDI clock information to sync with external devices and can be connected to your computer via USB.

The totally innovative design of SYSTEM-1 features performance-ready controls, quality construction and an array of lights, knobs and sliders.

The Roland AIRA System-1 now includes Ableton Live 9 Lite. To redeem your copy simply register your product at and send proof of purchase to Customer Support . On receipt of this the activation activation code will be sent directly to you.
