ROLAND ANNOUNCES AEROPHONE PRO VERSION 2.0, AVAILABLE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD

Roland is announcing a free Version 2.0 update for owners of the Aerophone Pro. With a refined design, premium components, and a vast sonic palette from Roland’s most advanced sound engines, Aerophone Pro’s latest update adds new, expressive features for wind players, including access to Roland Cloud Wave Expansions, Sound Packs with custom-designed sounds, motion sensor control, and updated clarinet and flute fingering modes.

Aerophone Pro makes it easy to channel creativity and lose yourself in the moment. Adjustable fingerings for saxophone (complete with a high-F# key), brasswinds, and now flute and clarinet, make it easy to play for new or existing Aerophone users. And the new motion sensor, programmable controllers for both hands, and a MIDI input for footswitches greatly expand performance options. Through extensive research and development, the breath and bite sensors are more responsive and expressive than ever, with low latency and configurable settings to suit any unique playing style.

With a 6-month Roland Cloud Pro membership included, musicians can explore new sonic territory with Wave Expansions, Sound Packs, and tones created with other instruments based on the ZEN-Core Synthesis System. There are even Sound Packs expertly designed for Aerophone Pro that take full advantage of its unique controls and expressive articulations.
