Traditional saxophone players will feel right at home on this exciting innovation from Roland.
Don't just dream about learning. Do it. With its high-performance digital sound engine and incredibly easy-to-use design, the Roland AE-01 Aerophone Mini will have you playing in minutes.
The battery-powered AE-01 makes learning and playing both easy and fun, regardless of your playing ability. With six built-in sounds to choose from, simple recorder-style fingering, and an expressive breath sensor that gives you great tone straight away, you have everything you need to begin your journey.
Don't be deceived by its simplicity though. The AE-01 is a powerful choice for advanced composition and creation too. With MIDI control via Bluetooth, a free companion app with a huge array of sounds and customisable settings, and the ability to play absolutely anywhere, you can create with confidence.
And with the Roland AE-01, it doesn't.
With its intuitive design and simple recorder-style fingering, the AE-01 will have you playing in minutes. You don't need ultra-flexible fingers or a photographic memory. The AE-01 has been built to let you learn and create with ease. And you're not tied down to a limited number of notes either. Using Roland's free companion app, you can instantly transpose your instrument's digital sound engine to play in any key you desire, so you can literally play anything.
It isn't just the fingering that makes the AE-01 easy to use either. Mastering your tone has never been easier. Alongside the digital sound engine that offers instantaneous great sound, the AE-01 boasts an expressive breath sensor. You don't have to worry about practicing complex breath control techniques. Simply blow into the mouthpiece, take advantage of the AE-01's intuitive fingering, and that's it. You're playing.
When you're playing an instrument, you want it to sound good. And that's exactly what you get with the AE-01. With its high-performance digital sound engine, every note you play is designed to sound spectacular.
Want to play in the bathroom? What about on the side of a mountain? With the AE-01, you can. Thanks to a compact and lightweight battery-powered design, you can take your instrument absolutely anywhere.
A handy built-in speaker means you can hear every note no matter where you are. You don't have to worry about plugging into external speakers so that you can practice. Plus, if you're in a noisy environment, or if you want to practice without disturbing anyone else around you, you can simply plug a pair of headphones into the 3.5mm headphone/output socket. Plugging headphones in automatically mutes the built-in speaker, so you're free to play in peace no matter where you are. Plus, you can still play along with songs that you're streaming from the companion app, as these play through your headphones too!
No matter what, the AE-01 lets you play exactly the way you want to. Thanks to the free Aerophone mini Plus companion app, you have a huge variety of options to personalise your playing experience. Change sounds, adjust the breath sensitivity, create your own unique fingerings, and more.
Adjusting the breath sensitivity lets you adapt your instrument to accommodate for lighter breath pressure, which is ideal for when you're just starting out. Combined with the ability to store and recall up to ten fingering layouts, you can customise your AE-01 to fit your needs. And you can change your settings at any time should those needs ever change.
What's more, the AE-01 also lets you take advantage of sounds from other music apps. Supporting MIDI control via Bluetooth, you can connect your instrument and compose music in a huge variety of third-party applications. The AE-01 may be small, but the creative possibilities are endless...
