A premium 76 note keyboard, the Roland BK-9 Backing Keyboard is a perfect keyboard for solo performers and enthusiasts looking for premium quality sound. The BK-9 is easy to use and gig ready, proving Roland's reputation as a great backing keyboard manufacturer.
76 note keyboard weighing just 9.4kg
A pro quality keyboard gives you 76 notes and surprisingly the Roland BK-9 weighs just 9.4kg, less than 21 pounds! SuperNATURAL sounds feature, with 22 of the 1700 onboard tones featuring the more-than-impressive Roland technology. Additionally, 500 of the built-in sounds are new, taken from Roland's vast sound library.
Hands-on user interface with real-time control
The user interface has been well thought out and shows off the many years of experience Roland have in designing such things. Two screens and hands-on, real-time control give you intuitive direction over backings, effects and more. Professional features such as an XLR microphone input, 16 track sequencer, rhythm composer and USB playback/recording mean the Roland BK-9 is a fully functional instrument with wide-reaching possibilities.
Compatible with Roland Wireless Connect
The Roland BK-9 is compatible with Roland Wireless Connect, a way to connect your keyboard to an Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch when used with an optional WNA1100-RL Wireless Adaptor. Don't mind a wired connection? You can use the Apple Camera Connection Kit to link up your Roland BK-9. Dedicated Roland apps such as Air Recorder, BK Partner and Lyrics viewer all work with the BK-9.
