Overview

The Roland Aerophone AE-10 is a trailblazing digital wind instrument that fuses traditional sax fingering with the flexible onboard tones you need to address a broader set of performance parameters. Seasoned players will feel instantly at home with the familiar saxophone fingering system, responsive SuperNATURAL sounds, and a breath sensor that reacts like an acoustic horn.

The large sound selection recreates saxophone models from soprano to baritone, plus wind instruments like clarinet and trumpet, string instruments, and even synths. With built-in speakers, battery power capability, and DAW connectivity, the Roland Aerophone AE-10 is the versatile, play-anywhere choice that supports you in every musical scenario.

The Roland Aerophone AE-10 has a sensitive mouthpiece-mounted breath sensor that also functions as a bite sensor, allowing expressive techniques like vibrato and pitch. Whatever scenario you’re playing in, the Roland Aerophone AE-10 has the onboard digital sax sounds you need. Choose from alto, tenor, soprano, and baritone sax types that all respond just like their acoustic counterparts to your playing dynamics and articulation, thanks to Roland’s advanced SuperNATURAL modeling technology. Alongside individual sounds, you can pull off a seamless performance with the Full Range feature, switching between sax types by key range.

A Variety of Realistic Acoustic Instruments and Synths
AE-10 gives you a variety of additional acoustic instrument sounds like clarinet, flute, oboe, trumpet, violin, and more, all powered by Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology to faithfully match the behavior of the originals. Even ethnic instruments like shakuhachi and erhu are on hand, offering authentic pitch and tonal fluctuations that echo their acoustic counterparts. Once you’ve tried the individual sounds, you can create one-man ensembles by layering multiple wind instrument sounds with the Brass Section setting. The AE-10 is also packed with a selection of the latest synth sounds that are specially tailored for wind instrument performance with fully optimized breath control.

Onboard Speakers, Battery Power, and Headphones
Six AA batteries provide mobile power, and onboard monitor speakers deliver comfortable sound for intimate performing situations. You also have the ability to directly connect to a PA or amp for broader coverage, eliminating the need to use a mic. Playing sessions are even more fun when you connect to your smartphone via the Aerophone AE-10’s stereo mini jack and jam along with favorite songs.

Breath Control Brings Unique Expressive Possibilities to Your Music Productions
While the Roland Aerophone AE-10 is a powerful standalone instrument, it also lets you get creative with external gear. You can connect to your computer via USB to play soft synths and external MIDI sound modules through your DAW, with breath control providing a world of unique expression not possible with keyboard synthesizers.

Love the product and excited about the new world of music.

Comments about Roland AE-10 Aerophone Digital Wind Instrument:

It took months, but it finally arrived. I also purchased the Saxrax stand for the Aerophone, which is perfect. I'm very pleased and intrigued by the instrument. I'm new both to the electronic wind instrument and to the sax, so I'm starting from scratch. It's light, has great variety in instrument sounds and the sound from the internal speakers, and alternative use of headphones, is excellent. That's the feature I was seeking, so I don't disrupt others as I'm learning.

Wait on this for improvement to the sound and editing

Comments about Roland AE-10 Aerophone Digital Wind Instrument:

This instrument does not live up to the hype. The sounds and editing capabilities are not worth the cost. I have iin touch with Roland customer service about both the sound and editing capabilities and was informed that they have not gotten that far in the development of this product. I have been trying to get the most out of this instrument but I will probably be returning it and looking for future models with the improvement that I asked for.
