Roland teases AIRA line with shadowy new video

The Roland Corporation continues its roll-out of remade 808s and 909s with a mysterious clip.

Earlier this month, we received news of Roland’s plans to revive the legendary TR-808 drum machine, most likely as an emulated digital synth. Plans for a remake of the TR-909 and the VT-3 Vocal Transformer followed.

Roland has shared another video that appears to be of a few of the new machines. This one’s just a teaser though, with the first public showing of the line due next month.

FACT recently published a beginner’s guide to the TR-808, while Mr. Beatnick examined whether we should be excited about its return.
