The Roland AIRA Compact J-6 Chord Synthesizer is a very portable song-writing tool that combines an effective and user-friendly chord sequencer with a rich JUNO-60 synthesizer emulation driven by Roland's ACB sound engine.
The Roland Aira Compact J-6 includes 100 built-in chords that cover a range of traditional genres, always giving songs and improvisations new spins. Making great music doesn’t require knowledge of chords or theory, you can just rapidly pull up and alter chords with the push of a button. Send chords to other MIDI devices, make accompaniments for live performances, or come up with ideas for new songs.
Create up to 64 patterns using the 64-step sequencer and one of the 64 ready-to-play synth presets taken from the iconic JUNO. Add rhythmic phrases and arpeggios using the 9 available genres’ 12 variants. Using the filter, envelope, and configurable reverb and delay FX settings, you may shape the synth in real time. The J-6 includes MIDI I/O ports that let you connect to other AIRA compacts and MIDI equipment as well as a class-compliant USB interface for audio and MIDI. You can take your creativity everywhere thanks to the built-in rechargeable battery, which receives power through USB.
