Get Digital Freedom With The Agile Expression Of A Wind Instrument With The Roland Aerophone GO Digital Wind Instrument

Wind instruments can impart powerful emotions upon music, especially within the genres of classical, pop, rock, and jazz. The sound of the saxophone, for example, has captivated music lovers of all ages, and many people would love to play one - although it's not always easy. For instance, there are many types of wind instrument so choosing one can be tough, especially when you like several. Noise levels make it difficult to practice at home, particularly at night. And staying motivated is hard when your practice time is limited or you can't find a place to play. Roland's Aerophone GO is a digital wind instrument that solves all these problems. First, there are 11 expressive instruments on board including a variety of sax sounds. You can play them anywhere, thanks to battery operation and a built-in speaker. And you can practice whenever you like, by connecting a set of headphones. Wirelessly connect your smartphone and you can access extra sounds, play along with your favorite songs or start an ensemble performance with up to six friends. If you've always wanted to play the saxophone (or flute, clarinet, and many more) Aerophone GO gives you everything you need to start...and keep on going.

Find An Inspiring Sound, Think of Your Favorite Tune, and Start Playing

With 11 wind instrument sounds onboard - including soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone sax - Aerophone GO lets you explore a multitude of musical genres. But even if sax is your preferred instrument, playing violin, clarinet, or even synth lead is great fun and hugely inspiring.

Smartphone Apps Make it Quicker to Learn Your Favorite Song

As a standalone instrument, Aerophone GO offers inspiring sounds, portability and the option of playing with headphones. And when you use Bluetooth to wirelessly connect with your smartphone, things become even more exciting. Aerophone GO Plus is a free app that lets you play along with favorite songs from your smartphone, offering several ways to learn specific songs including slowing the tempo of the playback song, or looping a section of the song to study it in detail.
