New Roland AIRA Compact: T8, E4 and J6


The new Roland AIRA Compact Series includes the T-8, E-4 and J-6 which build on the legacy of classic Roland sounds from the TR808, TR909, TB303 and Juno drum machines & synths.

The T-8 includes sounds from the TR-808 and 909 classic drum machines, the E-4 builds on the TR3 and TR4 voice transformers and the J in the J-6 stands for JUNO!

Between them, these have been responsible for a massive amount of both classic and contemporary electronic music, hip-hop, pop music and beyond.  



AIRA Compact puts Roland’s legendary creative magic in the palm of your hand. Jam, perform, and develop ideas anywhere with genre-defining sounds. Chain AIRA Compact instruments together to extend your palette—or connect with MIDI gear, computers, and music apps to expand your existing rig. Fun, affordable, and easy to learn, AIRA Compact brings serious musical power to creators on the move.

AIRA Compact invites you to start making music the instant you power up. With friendly controls, inspiring sounds, and loads of creative tools, you can quickly turn simple ideas into off-the-cuff masterpieces.



However and wherever you make music, AIRA Compact instruments are there for you. Stow one in a pocket or backpack and compose on the go. Mix and match them for busking, club performing, and livestreams. Or use them as high-quality sound generators and input devices for larger-scale performances and computer music production.



Driven by the advanced Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology found in our top-line instruments, AIRA Compact delivers the real-deal sounds behind decades of hit music. Create with the authentic voices of Roland icons, including TR rhythms, TB basses, JUNO synths, VT effects, and more.


AIRA Compact provides ample I/O to interface with everything in your musical world. Synchronize and monitor multiple AIRA Compact instruments from one unit, connect with stereo audio and MIDI devices, and communicate with computers and mobile music apps via USB-C.


AIRA Compact strikes the perfect balance between portability and power. Each model is small enough to slip in a pocket and features a tactile panel to jumpstart your creative flow. Onboard lithium-ion batteries provide hours of continuous fun per charge. And with Roland’s famous build quality, your AIRA Compact is ready for years of musical exploration.
