Bring the bass. The Roland Aira TB-3 brings the bass synth back. Reproducing the legendary TB-303, the TB-3 Touch Bassline has a meticulously authentic sound and intuitive controls. Only manufactured by Roland between 1982 and 84, the original TB-303 was designed to simulate bass guitar, but the Roland 303 bassline has become one of the most important sounds in dance music.
The new AIRA TB-3 has evolved to switch seamlessly between pattern creation and performance, whilst using ACB technology to emulate those 303 sounds we know and love.
The V-Moda M-100 Crossfade Headphones deliver stunning clarity thanks to the wide frequency response. The analog noise isolation helps to minimise outside noise, perfect for DJs in nightclubs. The design for the headphones was crowdsourced by a wide range of audio professionals including Grammy-winning producers, DJs and more. The SteelFlex headband is perfect for long DJ performances, providing maximum comfort which helps to minimise listening fatigue.

The TB-303 has evolved into the Roland AIRA TB-3, engineered for today's players but keeping in mind its lineage as one of the staples of electronic music.
Since the '80s, the TB-303 has been a prime element in the creation of groundbreaking electronic dance tracks. Cherished so much by inventive musicians, it's not only been used to write hits, but had a song written about it!
The AIRA TB-3 emulates the individual circuit behaviour that has made the TB-303 an indispensible bass synth. Crafted using the original specification sheets, with fully reproduced saw-tooth and square-wave oscillators, as well as the -18dB/octave ladder low pass filter used in the original, the TB-3 captures the unmistakable cutoff and resonance. Every aspect of the TB-303 sound is there.
Loaded with 134 sounds, the TB-3 contains not only faithful reproductions of sought-after 303 tones but living, breathing bubbling synth basses, hard distortion basses, trippy delays and drippy effects.
The unique Roland TB Bass Line not only sounds unique, it has an unmistakable feel too. The Accent, Slide and Step Sequencer behave just like they did on the original TB-303. But the TB-3 is not a copy. Engineers have worked on evolving the TB-3 so it's fit for today's players and futureproofed with a pressure sensitive Touch Pad and dedicated Tempo control with Shuffle and Tap Tempo.
Brightly lit in green and red, the TB-3's Touch Pad lets you seamlessly create patterns and interact with the unit during performance. Tweak pitch, volume, filters and control modulation just by pressing on the pad. Finger gestures control transpose, switch and chain patterns, and the Touch Pad is partitioned with keyboard spaces making it natural and intuitive to play.
Designed to play seamlessly with the other products in the Roland AIRA series, the TB-3 can sync with each of them as well as other external devices. The TB-3 can also send and receive Audio and MIDI data using a USB connection to your computer.

The highly immersive 3D soundstage makes you feel like you’re in the middle of a live performance, providing ultra-wide clarity with a vivid midrange and deep, punchy bass.
The 50mm dual-diaphragm driver features inner and out rings designed to separate the bass from blending into the mids and highs, ensuring you can differentiate between frequency bands. The drivers also deliver consistent quality, with V-Moda testing the Crossfade’s sound quality across 6 frequencies for optimal audio performance.
The over-ear design of the V-Moda M-100 features a sleek design with a versatile construction that helps to accommodate the natural contours of your head and minimise any gaps, for minimal sound leakage. You can also customise the look of your headphones by 3D printing or laser engraving your logo, changing your shield material or the colour scheme. The comfortable yet virtually indestructible SteelFlex headband ensures the headphones will last for a long time, providing the ultimate durability.
The SteelFlex headband is ultra-flexible, making it ideal for DJ use and travelling.
