The Roland A-800PRO Midi Keyboard Controller can be used on stage, in the studio or anywhere else where inspiration strikes. With all the features you need to get the most out of your performance and production, this 61-key model has form and function for serious players.
Superior Key Mechanism
The Roland A-800PRO has 30 years of Roland keyboard development behind it. The key mechanism has aftertouch and increased sensitivity to inject a huge range of expressive dynamism into your playing and performing. The rounded key assemblies ensure an instant reaction to your touch with smooth glissando and refinements have been made to get rid of vertical shake and reduce mechanical noise when you strike the key. Selectable velocity curves can be fine-tuned to match your playing style so no matter what your skill level you'll feel at home when you sit down with the A-800PRO.
The A-800PRO has been specifically designed to put everything within reach of your fingertips with easily accessible controls laid out in an intelligent fashion to make performance and production intuitive and exhilarating. 9 knobs, 9 sliders, 4 buttons and a dedicated Transport section of complete control of any feature you need, whether you're working with a VST or your favourite DAW and the sure-grip rubber-coated Pitch Bend/Modulation Stick gives you control of both functions at the same time. 8 velocity-sensitive Dynamic Pads are also within reach, letting you trigger loops, one-shots or samples on the fly adding percussive expression to your repertoire. The A-800PRO Editor software makes it simple to customise the controls to your liking, ensuring this keyboard controller will fit seamlessly into your workflow.
Easy connections are placed on the side panel so that you can fit this keyboard on even the tightest of desks. The reasoning behind this is that you're likely to want a monitor or laptop behind the keyboard, so it makes sense to have your wires go off to the side rather than clog up an already busy part of the workstation. The classic connections are all here, USB, MIDI IN/OUT plus connectors for Hold and Expression pedals allowing you to expand the functionality of the A-800PRO.
The Roland A-800PRO Midi Keyboard Controller is perfect for stage or studio, with bags of performance and utility packed into a neat and well thought out package. The ultra-bright backlit LED display buttons ensure you can see what you're up to on the darkest of stages and murkiest of studios and it's powered by USB, ensuring you can take this clever controller wherever you go.
