Roland Keyboards

About Roland

Roland has been one of the leading developers of electronic musical instruments for thirty years, over which time the company has created pioneering products which have shaped the face of popular and experimental electronic music. 1980 for example saw the release of the TR 808 analogue drum machine before electronic sounds had fully moved into the mainstream. Within a few years though, it became an integral ingredient to some of the biggest hits in electronic, dance, and hip hop genres. Similarly, the Roland’s TB 303 analogue bassline synthesizer and TR 909 drum machine both have a defining role in the history of house music, being staple tools for producers from the late 1980s acid house scene in Chicago to the present day.

Roland Keyboards at Bonners

Bonners has in stock as part of Roland’s Boutique range, the TR 09 and TB 03 models, which are ultra-compact and affordable accurate recreations of the original instruments. As well as the Boutique range, Bonners has 14 different synthesizers and workstations to choose from. If you are seeking a high-end instrument with incredible versatility, then you might like the look of Roland’s JD-XA Hybrid Analog Synthesizer, which uniquely combines analogue and digital functionality, and is on sale at Bonners for £540 under its RRP. Amazing deals too can be found if you are after one of Roland’s stage piano models, such as their V-PIANO 88 Key Digital Modelling Piano which Bonners is selling for £486 under its RRP.

We are also proud to have a number of inspiring products from Roland’s Aira hardware series, which aims to bring genre defining sounds to a new generation of musical innovators in an age when computer software has arguably taken some of the hands-on feel and spontaneity out of the creative process and the world of live performance in electronic music. Whether it’s Roland’s Aira VT3 Voice Transformer, TB3 Touch Bassline or MX1 Mix Performer, all pieces of Aira hardware use newly developed Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, which faithfully captures the sound and feel of living, breathing instruments.

Feel free to come down to our showrooms, if there is too much to choose from and you need some expert advice, or want to take a seat at the Roland RD pianos including the RD800, the Roland Jupiter 80 and Jupiter 50, as well as the Roland VR09, GAIA and Juno series instruments, which are usually on display.

Roland A01K 8-bit Boutique SynthesizerBundled package with K-25m keyboard dock Powerful Pocket Module with MIDI/Analog Connectivity and Sound EngineA controller is a vital part of any music production setup, but choosing the right one can be a dilemma. You want a unit with the flexibility to drive all your MIDI and CV/GATE-equipped analog gear. You need to connect to the huge range of music-making apps for tablets and smartphones. And as a modern musician moving from gig to gig, you need to be able to work on projects whenever inspiration strikes. The Roland A-01 ticks all of your boxes—whether you want to warm up backstage, control every element of an elaborate home studio setup, or create original music from scratch, this flexible controller and sound generator is your one-stop solution.

Whether you’re playing modern MIDI or vintage analog synths, working on a home computer, or touring with an iOS device, the A-01 module is a truly open-ended controller offering multiple connectivity options for every MIDI format. For legacy MIDI synths, simply use the standard MIDI IN/OUT socket. To work with your favorite DAW software on a Mac or PC, there’s the USB MIDI jack, while MIDI over Bluetooth allows for production work on a tablet or smartphone as well as a computer. Better still, there’s no need to ditch your faithful analog gear, as the A-01’s CV/GATE OUT supports classic equipment, including vintage modular synths. More Than a Controller—Spark Original Music with the Sound Engine and K-25m KeyboardYou’d expect a good MIDI controller to take charge of your setup. What you might not realize is that the A-01 is also a pocket synthesizer that lets you create original music at home or away.

Docking into the optional Roland K-25m keyboard unit, you’ll have 25 velocity-sensitive keys at your fingertips for creating music in real time and driving external gear. Combined with a 16-step sequencer for sparking ambitious musical ideas, the A-01 goes far beyond control and kick starts your creativity. Easy Operation and LCD for Real-Time Control On Stage and In the Studio Whether you’re working on a complex studio arrangement or triggering synths at a gig, it’s vital to have a MIDI controller that gives you the information you need at a glance. Thanks to the A-01’s intuitive operation and visual representation of data—plus the optional K-25m keyboard unit—you’ll always be in control. Cleanly designed for real-time performance, the module has dedicated dials and dual ribbon controllers assignable to pitch bend, modulation, sound preview, and channel and polyphonic aftertouch, as well as CC and system exclusive data. Even in a pitch-black venue, you’ll be kept in the loop by a 192x40 graphic LCD screen, which gives you all the facts, right down to the shape of the output waveform. Compact, Battery-Powered, and Speaker-Equipped for Music Production On the Move As a modern musician, your career pulls you between stage, studio, and band practice, and you don’t want to be slowed down by a cumbersome MIDI controller. Despite its heavyweight tech, the A-01 is light on its feet. The ultra-compact, metal-paneled design is pocket-sized, weighs 950 grams/36 ounces, and is powered by either batteries (4 x AA) or USB bus power. It’s practical for playback, too, with your choice between the built-in 0.5 W mini-speaker or plugging in headphones.
