UPDATE – it will be presented on Musikmesse but also in Feb. – and they put out some more till then – they seem to be more into the promotion of stuff – they did not show the AIRA series at NAMM but have another teaser for the world and I also just post it and send you to the longish forum posts (page 35) .. 4th Update: it’s called ACB – Analog Circuit Bahavior – Korg’s buzz word is quite similar (component modeling…) it means – they analyzed it…

it’s this video which makes us think it will be the classic TR/TB coming back as analog or analog modeling machines – it’s just the end of this clip … NAMM is coming – so be prepared  aira looks like some of the a’s are for analogue? on of the names is TR8 or TR9 .. and some more melodic below – mc202? tb303? or a full real multi track thing incorporating some more and without the „you need to stop the sequencer when editing“ problem of the MCs..? good idea,…
