The knobage on the picture is impressive. Extended controls on the Kick and Snare voices. Faders - so there may be a mix automation track?
Everything though reeks of total digital - maybe VA + samples. The amount of voice controls suggest it's more than just samples. If the sounds are not only a recreation, but go usefully further, I might be interested.

Please awaken me when the hype machine has reached 'Ludicrous' speed.

Is the AIRA going to be true analogue or some kind of digital analogue modelling? If it's the latter it faces extremely hard competition from Native Instruments Maschine 2.0 drum synths. Those are so ridiculously good that Roland need to be exceptional with their implementation or then they need to go full retard.. I mean analogue. :hihi:

It's going to be digital (according to people in the know).

it's going to be digital ? or it's going to have digital elements ?
there's a distinction to be made there, but the rumour mill isn't interested in distinctions - I know :)
