Roland AIRA Series: System-1 Synth Demonstration – Video

Two days before the world wide presentation of the new AIRA series of Roland, this saturday, we were invited to see for ourselves if our high expectations are met. Not only did we get some inside info on the Aira development, we als got to play with the new equipment and saw the rehearsal of dutch dj/live artist Sluwe Vos, together with Belgian dj Faisal and product specialist David Ahlund. We were able to make video’s for some exclusive footage of them performing with the new Roland TB-3 (acid), TR-8 (bassss), VT-3 (vocoder) and System-1 (synth).

As you might know, if you visit us here regularly, we are strong supporters of the ‘old and analog’. ‘Vintage‘ is a word or term that gives a slight warm feeling inside. In our studio we have a few synths and drumcomputers of the vintage hardware realm. Many of our followers and visitors share this affection. But what if these old machines break down or are in need of a good service/tune up? Then it is good to know there are people out there who have the knowledge and expertise to help you out. PhilSynth from Berlin is one of these companies that can help you out!

When he started Eclectic Method, he created a project so progressive that the simple tag of VJ would never do.
