The Aerophone GO - Roland's Most Portable Digital Wind Instrument. Play anywhere, anytime.
Roland's new Aerophone GO lets you practise and perform anywhere. It's the ideal battery-powered digital wind instrument for modern musicians.
Roland has just announced its latest instrument for modern musicians. The Roland Aerophone GO is the most portable Aerophone yet; it's a battery-powered digital wind instrument featuring a Bluetooth connection and a companion app for the ultimate in wireless connectivity.
With its traditional sax fingering, the Aerophone GO is perfect for experienced players looking to recreate their saxophone performances digitally. The 11 built-in sounds also allow players to explore the sounds of other instruments, while the companion mobile app - Aerophone GO Plus - expands the number of sounds even further.
The layout of the keys will be familiar to experienced players, yet also makes the Aerophone GO a fantastic tool for developing musicians. The sensitive mouthpiece-mounted breath sensor functions as a bite sensor, so you'll be able to achieve all manner of expressive techniques including vibrato and pitch bending. The digital sound engine makes transposition a breeze, while the lightweight design means you'll be able to play long sessions in comfort.
The Aerophone GO is designed for the maximum level of portability - battery power enables you to make music on the move, while the built-in speaker and headphone output are perfect for mobile practice at any time of the day or night, without disturbing others. A carry case is also included, making the Aerophone GO the ideal instrument for musicians on the move.
Aerophone Go Plus App & Go Ensemble App
Aerophone GO can also be connected to the Aeropohone GO Ensemble app, allowing up to 7 Aerophones to play together wirelessly for practising, rehearsing, classroom learning, and more.
Once connected to the app, each player can access 19 different sounds to play with, and the whole ensemble can be mixed via an onboard mixer. The final output can be sent to headphones or a powered monitor for the ultimate mobile ensemble setup. The Aerophone GO Plus app also allows you to control performance parameters such as breath control/bite sensor sensitivity, fingering, and more.
Whether you're just starting to play the saxophone or you're an experienced musician, the Aerophone GO is the perfect mobile practice and performance tool for modern players.
