PLUG-OUT Synthesizer: Host Software Synths -- No Computer Needed The System 1 AIRA synth is fully USB enabled and can connect to your Mac- or PC-based laptop to control your favorite soft synth plug-ins directly from the hardware. What's more, System 1 offers the revolutionary PLUG-OUT feature. Essentially a compact computer within a synthesizer, the System 1 allows you to upload and host soft-synth models of classic Roland synths directly within the System 1's memory, so you can take your soft synth to the gig and leave your laptop at home. You can switch between the internal sound engine and a hosted soft synth at any time. To get you started, Roland offers a fully modeled digital version of the legendary Roland SH-101 in soft-synth form -- and there are more digital versions of vintage Roland synths to come, so your System 1 will expand over time.
Analog Circuit Behavior Technology Each Roland AIRA unit is authentically crafted based on the original specifications of the '80s instrument which inspired it. Using DSPs and Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, Roland has painstakingly created digital models of vintage Roland synths like System-100, System-700, SH-101, etc., going so far as to model the behavior of the analog circuits themselves, allowing the System 1 to function and sound just like its predecessors. So you get a vintage-sounding analog-modeling synth that's affordable and expandable with your favorite software synths -- no laptop required!
