The Roland AIRA crew headed to Movement in Detroit – a city integral to the history of electronic music and to our history as a company. AIRA gear was in lots of the performance rigs – keeping the music thumping and the crowds jumping. Check out this video of highlights including cutting edge new artists and techno legends.
A quick look inside the Roland Aira VT-3 . nothing much to see really but I end the video by trying out a few instruments through it and using it as an effects unit for the TR-8 and TB-3 and AX-Synth
Here is a look inside the Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer where I do a quick service and repair and look around the circuitry.

The JV-2080, released in 1997, uses a sample + synthesis synth architecture.

A massive 64 voice multitimbral performance module that strives to offer the best all-around features for creating new and vintage sounds for any musical style. Excellent acoustic sounds of all instruments both common and ethnic. A massive amount of techno sounds complete with pulses, blips, sweeps, and the ever popular LFO, VCF and VCA type controls for patch editing and real-time editing. The 2080 is extremely expandable with room for 8 sound cartridges from the JV-80 series, as well as a data card slot. The 2080 has 5 excellent effects processors too, including the new EFX processors. Verb, delay, panning effects, chorus, flange, etc
