`Roland introduces its new S-1 Aira Compact series synt that combines retro spirit and advanced capabilities in a pocket-sized package that you can take anywhere.
Thanks to the ever-evolving Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, it offers the authentic tone and response of the SH-101, an iconic 80s monosynthesizer appreciated for its distinctive sound and simple direct access panel. Extending the original design with four-voice polyphony and a host of innovative features for superior music creation, the S-1 makes it easy for musicians of all levels to explore the power of synthesis through a friendly and simple interface.
Roland S-1 is packed with expressive tactile controls, it’s a miniature sound and performance design powerhouse. Create luxurious shades with oscillator, envelope, filter and LFO sections.
Create immersive music in moments with the S-64’s 64-step sequencer and 1 patterns. Record in real time using the built-in keyboard or switch to step mode for detailed note entry and editing. Use motion recording to animate patterns with changes to panel controls or set parameter values for individual steps.
