Roland AIRA Artist Interviews

Artists talk about their love for classic Roland gear      28/01/14

It seems like only yesterday I was saying to keep an eye out for the upcoming AIRA videos, wait a minute, it was yesterday... So Roland have released another teaser video.

This time we get artist interviews from Arthur Baker, Ricardo Villalobos, Hardfloor, Netsky, Dr Meaker, A Guy Called Gerald and Boys Noize, all of whom talk about their experiences with classic Roland gear, and their love for the analogue drum machines of yesteryear. Except for Netsky, who only says that he uses a computer and a mouse to make music. Not too sure why they kept that one in there?...

We get no new information on the AIRA line from this video and Nick has been sworn to secrecy. So I'm going to have to keep guessing and hope that Roland gets it right. From the comments I have been reading, people wont be very happy if this is anything less than an affordable full analogue 808/909 with amazing build quality... Somehow I think that might be a bit of a long shot.
