Roland AE-05 Aerophone GO Digital 11 Onboard Tone Battery-Operated Wind Instrument (Graphite)

The Roland Aerophone GO Digital Wind Instrument in Graphite can impart powerful emotions to 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 is not always easy. There are many types of wind instruments, so choosing one can be tough, especially when you like several of them. 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 cannot find a place to play. Roland’s Aerophone GO is a digital wind instrument that solves all these problems. First, there are eleven expressive instruments on board, including a variety of saxophone 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 have always wanted to play the saxophone, flute, clarinet, and many more Aerophone GO gives you everything you need to start and keep going.

With eleven instrument sounds on board, 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. Downloading the free Aerophone GO Plus app invites you to explore even further, adding fifty additional sounds and letting you customize the onboard settings to suit your style.

Play Anytime, Anywhere

Aerophone GO is highly portable, with four rechargeable NI-MH AA batteries that let you play anywhere. The built-in speaker delivers high-quality sound wherever you want to play, without needing external speakers or connections. And using headphones means you can play any time of the day or night without disturbing family or neighbors; just choose a sound, set the volume, and start playing. Weighing 1lb Aerophone Go is a great travel partner too and comes with a soft case for your musical adventures.

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 includes eleven easy-to-follow tutorial songs to help build skills quickly. You can also play along with your favorite songs on your smartphone and use several tools to assist you in learning them, including slowing the tempo or looping a section to study it in detail. In addition, the app provides access to over fifty additional sounds for exploring a wider range of musical genres. And it is even possible to customize performance settings, including finger setup, bite sensor adjustment, and breath control sensitivity.

Supports Traditional Sax Fingering and Authentic Breath Control

Aerophone GO is a great choice for anyone learning a wind instrument, but it is also compatible with traditional sax and recorder fingering, so experienced players can use familiar playing techniques. A sensitive mouthpiece-mounted breath sensor also functions as a bite sensor, supporting expressive techniques like vibrato and pitch. Beginners can enjoy playing the onboard sounds right away, while more experienced performers will appreciate that they can play Aerophone GO without having to learn a new fingering system or adapt their existing technique.

Get To Grips with Note Transposition

If you want to play the saxophone, understanding transposition is essential. The saxophone is a transposing instrument, which means that the key in which you play sounds different from what is written on the music score. For example, if a guitarist, pianist, and saxophonist are jamming in the key of C, the sax will be playing the key of A for an alto sax or D for a tenor sax. The Aerophone GO’s Transpose function makes it easier to transpose between what you are reading, what you are playing, and what you are hearing.
