With all this onboard you no longer have to worry about the performance and expression issues that you can get with other controllers. The Roland A-88 gives you the playability of a grand piano (including superb action and natural resistance-gradation) and the feel of real ivories.
In addition to this the Roland A88 Keyboard offers Dual and Split buttons for you to easily set up external instruments on the keyboard. It is also the perfect companion to an external SuperNATURAL sound module (e.g. INTEGRA-7), as it will automatically assign its controls. This means it can also act as a second keyboard for those with a JUPITER-80 or ñ50.

It can also be used with your iPad by connecting with Apple's Camera Connection Kit (sold separately).
