Here’s what Roland say:
If you’ve always wanted to play a musical instrument, Aerophone mini is the fastest way to realize your dream. This fun modern wind instrument is super-easy to learn, so you’ll be playing along with your favourite songs in no time. Six great onboard sounds let you explore a variety of music styles, while the compact design travels anywhere you go.
A World of Inspiring Sounds
Aerophone mini offers a diverse range of instrument types to enjoy with your favourite music. Saxophone, flute, violin, clarinet, trumpet, and synthesizer sounds are built in, providing a variety of traditional and modern tones to explore. And by connecting to the Aerophone mini Plus app via Bluetooth, you have instant access to over 50 more.
Simple Fingering for Fast Learning
The recorder is a popular wind instrument for introducing young children to playing music—maybe you even played one in school. Aerophone mini’s fingering is based on the recorder, allowing you to start making musical sounds in minutes. And with the companion app, you can instantly transpose the digital sound engine to any musical key.
Easy Breath Control
For good pitch and tone, acoustic wind instruments require focused breath control techniques that can take a long time to master. But Aerophone mini sounds great immediately, thanks to its digital sound engine and expressive breath sensor. Just learn the simple fingering, blow into the mouthpiece, and away you go!
Start Playing Right Away
The Aerophone mini Plus app lets you hit the ground running with 11 practice songs and easy-to-follow lessons. The app visually displays fingerings for each note, so there’s no need to fuss with complicated music notation. And with adjustable tempo, you’re able to start out slow and build up speed as you feel more confident. You can also stream songs from your music library with the app, and it’s even possible to turn down the vocal for karaoke-style playing and singing.
Play and Record Instruments in Music Apps
Many popular music production apps include software instruments that can be played and recorded via MIDI. Aerophone mini includes wireless MIDI support over Bluetooth, allowing you to take the next step and start composing your own music when you’re ready.
