It looks like Roland's Aira brand is actually going to encompass rather more than just the TR-08 drum machine that was leaked last week, for we now know that there's a similarly-styled VT-3 vocal transformer in the works, too.

Designed to change the sound of your voice, it looks like this comes with a selection of presets and hands-on Pitch and Formant controls.

Unofficial details are below. We'll have more when we get it; keep an eye on the Roland Aira website for updates, too.
