Aerophone AE-20 delivers all the playability and expression of the top-of-the-line Aerophone Pro in a more compact and streamlined design. Offering a rich musical experience with premium details and Roland's most advanced sound engines, this inspiring modern wind instrument brings next-level power and versatility to all your creative journeys.

Aerophone AE-20 lets you explore an endless range of tones as soon as you pick it up. With everything from woodwinds, strings, and brass to the latest synth sounds available at the touch of a button, there's no musical style you can't take on. The versatility of this powerful instrument extends even further with the ZEN-Core Synthesis System, the same advanced sound engine found in pro Roland keyboards like FANTOM and JUPITER-X. Explore everything from traditional analog synths to modern digital voices, all carefully curated for the unique articulations and extended dynamic range of a wind instrument.

Step right into your musical flow with Aerophone's familiar reed-style mouthpiece, immediate response, and natural pitch and vibrato control. The breath and bite sensors are customizable and ultra-sensitive, and you can easily configure the fingering for sax, clarinet, flute, recorder, or your own personal setup. And with instant transposition and a seven-octave range, you're able to cover any style with none of the range limits that come with traditional acoustic instruments.

Never stop learning
The Aerophone Lesson app gets you started right away, even if you've never played a wind instrument. Learn how to hold the Aerophone and use the mouthpiece, and get your fingering up to speed quickly with practice songs and accuracy scoring. And with Bluetooth[reg] audio streaming, you can play along with music and instructional videos through the Aerophone's sound system.
