That actually looks like a cool idea, if it acts as an audio interface for a computer as well as streaming from USB storage.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Who needs sends when every piece of Aira gear has FX built in already? ;)

Oh you mean you use stuff that's not Aira? Too bad :lol:

nice idea,
lousy aesthetic. and at first listen i'm afraid that's got the same digital filter resonance mix-staining crud that rolands have exhibited since 199something

I think this is an interesting idea, I've said a few times that I'd love to see Elektron come out with something like this. You can set up the Octatrack to work like this (minus the DAW sends) but with only four inputs, although with four live inputs and four loopers you can still do a h**l of a lot of stuff.

The Korg zero 4 and zero 8 both pioneered this kind of thing and we're perhaps a bit ahead of their time, I'm glad that the idea is coming back though.

This aira seems a bit limited unless you're using it with the other aira gear. They say 18 inputs but it's only actually 6 analogue, stereo digital and stereo aux return unless you have the aira instruments.
