"The Alesis AirSynth is a fun, rare and expressive unit to create synths sounds, drum/perc bits, and FX. the aXYZ Dome controller (a fancier version of the Roland D-beam) allows careful and wild control of various sounds. The AirSynth only has 50 presets but you get quite a variety of patches and variation with the dome controller. Add some FX and it really shines.

The companion AirFX unit (blue) has the same basic function an layout, but it’s purely an effect unit. I’ll post a demo of that one soon.

The only drawback is it’s the typical Alesis AC-AC adapter power (not AC-DC), so for mobile use you have to use an AC inverter and a DC power bank (I’ve done it many times). It’s just more bulky.

Unit has 50 Factory Presets - Synths/Drums/FX"
