It has the inspiring sounds and expressive control of Aerophone Pro, along with the flagship model’s acclaimed key touch, refined playability, and go-everywhere design.
A sonic universe at your fingertips.
Aerophone AE-20 lets you explore an endless range of tones as soon as you pick it up. With everything from woodwinds, strings, and brass to the latest synth sounds available at the touch of a button, there’s no musical style you can’t take on.
Aerophone AE-20 puts a world of stunningly authentic acoustic instrument sounds at your command. Instantly call up soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxes plus clarinet, flute, trumpet, and more. Violin, cello, and other string instruments are included as well, along with world instruments like erhu, shakuhachi, and bagpipes. Backed by our SuperNATURAL technology, every nuance of your playing is translated with lifelike dynamics, articulations, and overtones.
The versatility of this powerful instrument extends even further with the ZEN-Core Synthesis System, the same advanced sound engine found in pro Roland keyboards like FANTOM and JUPITER-X. Explore everything from traditional analog synths to modern digital voices, all carefully curated for the unique articulations and extended dynamic range of a wind instrument.
Lose yourself in the music.
Step right into your musical flow with Aerophone’s familiar reed-style mouthpiece, immediate response, and natural pitch and vibrato control. The breath and bite sensors are customizable and ultra-sensitive, and you can easily configure the fingering for sax, clarinet, flute, recorder, or your own personal setup. And with instant transposition and a seven-octave range, you’re able to cover any style with none of the range limits that come with traditional acoustic instruments.
Create anytime and anywhere.
Aerophone easily blends into any musical situation. Grab the instrument and play with the onboard speaker or connect headphones to practice without disturbing others. When it’s time to perform, plug into an amp or house PA for loud-and-proud coverage. Aerophone also supports USB-MIDI, giving you an incredibly powerful controller for creation with your favourite music production apps.
Never stop learning.
The Aerophone Lesson app gets you started right away, even if you’ve never played a wind instrument. Learn how to hold the Aerophone and use the mouthpiece and get your fingering up to speed quickly with practice songs and accuracy scoring. And with Bluetooth® audio streaming, you can play along with music and instructional videos through the Aerophone’s sound system.
Personalize your instrument.
The free Aerophone Pro Editor unlocks the full potential of your Aerophone with deep customization of sound and performance settings. Create original tones and layered sounds, organize them into Scenes, and call them up with a touch. You can also assign performance parameters for deeper expressive control and use the librarian function to save groups of Scenes on your mobile device or favourite online storage platform.
