Roland AE-01 Mini Aerophone Digital Wind Instrument



Available to order Click for more information

Roland's new AE-01 Mini Aerophone is a revolutionary new digital wind instrument that makes learning fun and intuitive. The AE-01 features 6 built-in sounds that cover Saxophone, Flute, Violin, Clarinet, Trumpet and synthesizer, whilst offering an extra 50 tones available through the official companion app.

The AE-01 Mini is a perfect starting point for students or session musicians looking to explore a creative new digital soundscape. Furthermore, it is the perfect practice tool for learning woodwind instruments - with a modern twist - any time, anywhere.

A World of Sonic Discovery

More than just a basic Woodwind replica, the Roland AE-01 Mini also adds MIDI and Bluetooth for seamless connectivity to your music production software. If you want to record demos, trigger Virtual Instruments or load up your instrument with new sounds, Roland have made it incredibly easy.

AE-01 features a powerful built-in speaker for busking and jamming with your friends. Or, by plugging in headphones, you can get lost in your new musical world without disturbing anyone.

Aerophone Mini Plus App

Roland understand that learning a new instrument (that feels slightly different to a traditional woodwind instrument) may be hindering, so they've also included access to a free Aerophone Mini Plus app for iOS and Android. This helps cut down the learning curve, and makes experimentation with 50 new sounds super easy. Plus, the AE-01 features song streaming from your mobile device to encourage jamming to your favourite tracks.

Learn faster and have fun with over 50 ready-to-play sounds, complementing those already included within the instrument as standard.

Roland's Aerophone Mini Plus app is the ultimate companion for learning to play the AE-01!
