Roland A88MKII 88 Key MIDI Keyboard Controller

An instrument first, controller second

You’d be forgiven to forget you are playing on a controller when using the Roland A-88MKII. Roland have placed playability at the forefront of the design when creating the A-88MKII. This has been achieved by utilising their acclaimed keyboard feel and technology used by professionals all over the world. The result is a controller that is extremely robust, with a wooden support allowing you to concentrate on creating music.

Impressive expression

The A-88MKII can be split into three, user-defined zones. This allows you to easily layer and split the keyboard into multiple sounds and instruments. This is a hugely beneficial creative tool, resulting in sounds and songs you never thought achievable. The unique pitch/mod lever and large array of knobs and pads allow for ultimate control of the sound, meaning you can get hands-on with music making. A sustain pedal input and two assignable pedal inputs help further enhance the A-88MKII’s studio capabilities.

Packed with modern features

The A-88MKII is everything a modern studio and artist requires. As well as features found in synths of years gone by, modern touches have been added to make your studio experience even easier. These include advanced arpeggiator, chord memory, and multipurpose pads that can trigger commands and events to bring life to real-time performances. All of these features are ready-made to get started immediately. Alternatively, they can be personalised and defined to suit your creative process.

MIDI and USB capabilities

Roland have played an integral role in the development of technology in music. The A-88MKII is a further example of this, offering the latest technology for ultimate compatibility and convenience. The controller can be powered and utilised via class compliant USB-C, ensuring full access with Windows and MacOS via one cable. The A-88MKII is also ahead of the game, ready to take full advantage of MIDI 2.0.

Pick up where you left off

Another key feature of the A-88MKII is the ability to instantly recall settings from previous sessions. Presets and settings can be easily viewed via the A-88MKII control app for macOS and Windows. Here you’ll find all previously created layers and mappings in an instant, with pad assign controls recalled at the touch of a button. You can also create custom setups to control specific synths or external hardware, then instantly recall everything with the handy Snap Shot function.

All the features, smaller size

When space is at a premium, the A-88MKII will easily find its place in a studio. The A-88MKII controller is designed to be as thin and shallow as possible, without losing any of the accessibility or performance synonymous with Roland equipment. Surfaces are flat and edges are squared so they sit neat alongside other gear to seamlessly integrate into your studio setup.
