Roland today announced three new machines in the new AIRA Compact range. Its s new form factor and one that is going for entry level and portability. All the new machines are back on the ACB modeling technology.

The three new models are:

T-8 Beat Machine

others to generate dynamic performances. 

J-6 Chord Synthesizer
The J-6 Chord Synthesizer pairing a powerful chord sequencer with tones of the JUNO-60 synth. Simply call up one of 100 chords sets and build chord progressions with one-touch presses on the
built-in keyboard. Styles, variations and rhythmic patterns from chords via step
input  and tweak the sound with dedicated filter and envelope controls, and add
customizable delay and reverb effects.

effects with a hands-on interface. Pitch and formant sliders are available to instantly
change the vocal gender, create robot voices, and more. Auto Pitch, automatic harmony,
and vocoder processors are included, along with reverb, delay, and other effects.
There's also a built-in 24-second looper for capturing performances on the fly, plus a
unique Scatter function for slicing and dicing the sound via a dedicated panel knob.
