The portable Roland GO:KEYS is a user-friendly music-creation keyboard for beginners and aspiring musicians. With its 10 performance pads, Bluetooth connectivity, song recorder, and innovative Loop Mix function, it allows anyone to build polished songs in real time, even with no previous music experience—straight out of the box.
The GO:KEYS features 61 touch-sensitive, full-size keys. Touch sensitivity adds dynamics to your playing—play lightly and the sound is soft, strike the key hard and it's loud. GO:KEYS offers 554 high-quality instrument sounds derived from Roland's acclaimed pro synthesizers. Use the intuitive category buttons to call up pianos, synths, basses, strings, guitars, brass, saxophones, and drums, and incorporate them into your Loop Mix jams.
The Loop Mix function lets you perform great-sounding music simply by selecting a genre and triggering loop phrases using single keys—without having to pay attention to pitch or timing. There are 1232 auto-accompaniment loops in genres including EDM, hip hop, trance, trap, rock, pop, funk, house, and more. The performance pads let you manipulate sounds like a DJ by adjusting pitch, filtering, and vibrato in real time with a simple motion of your fingertip left or right across the pads. And with the onboard song recorder, you can capture it all for immediate playback and sharing.
Bluetooth audio functionality allows you to wirelessly connect your smartphone/tablet to the GO:KEYS and use its built-in speakers to listen and jam along to your favorite music. When you need to dial down the decibels for quieter play, just plug-in a set of headphones.
Bluetooth MIDI functionality enables you to connect to dedicated apps that teach you how to play the latest songs or classical pieces. There is also a USB MIDI port for backing up your songs to a computer and recording in popular apps like GarageBand and others.
When inspiration strikes, the GO:KEYS is compact enough to throw in a carrying bag, while six AA batteries (available separately) supply all the power you need to play music anywhere, from camping trips to tour buses. The keyboard can also be powered via the included AC adapter.
