Product info from Roland:
Aggressively processed vocals are common in electronic music today, but producing these effects easily and reproducing them live has been a challenge—until now.

On top of that, the VT-3 looks great and works seamlessly with other products in the AIRA series.

DemoBackground video description:
I`ve had a chance to try out these new toys. Not for too long though… Anyway I out together a tech-like, rap-like, chill something with no use of external FX, compression or EQ. Some standard limiting added. I had lots of fun with the gear
As an addition to the TR8 review I managed to get hold of an original TR808.
I must say that after using the TR8 – its not at all intuitive to use – hence the rather simple demo.
System-1 synth will get its premiere (worldwide) at Dancefair on the 15th of february 2014. Yesterday we got a exclusive sneak peek from Roland CE.
