This Keyboard is Loaded with Stage-ready Sounds
If you ask Roland devotees, the RD-88 makes the ideal stage and studio companion. Why? Because it sounds and feels like a real-deal acoustic grand piano — all the way down to the expertly crafted hammer-action keys with perfectly refined escapement. Under the hood, this 88-key stage piano boasts Roland’s Zen-Core sound engine and groundbreaking SuperNatural technology. Strike a key and listen as the note bursts out of the onboard speakers with vibrant harmonic content. You get thousands of sumptuous sounds, hands-on controls, and 3-zone integration with Apple MainStage. Plus, the lightweight, rugged design makes for hassle-free transportation that won’t break your back. Take it from the pros at Musiekwereld: once you play the RD-88, you won’t want to make music with any other stage piano.
Sumptuous sounds and slick navigation
If you’re like us, you love having tons of sounds at your disposal. Roland packed the RD-88 with more than 3,000 sounds, courtesy of the ZEN-Core sound engine and SuperNATURAL technology. Fortunately, you don’t have to wade through a forest of confusing knobs and menus to access them. You get a range of legendary sounds from acoustic and electronic pianos to organs and flutes. The RD-88 has a thoughtfully designed interface that keeps all the necessary controls within easy reach. It’s just as easy to dial up a new sound as it is to shape your tone and add extra effects on the fly. Need more sonic flexibility? You’re in luck, as the RD-88 also integrates with Apple MainStage to control soft synths over three zones.
A poised playing feel
When you feel connected to your instrument, you’re going to perform better. It’s as simple as that. Roland knows this as well, which is why they outfitted the RD-88 with their acclaimed PHA-4 keybed. Professionals all over the world rave about the PHA-4’s natural playability and smooth, reliable action. The Ivory Feel finish behaves like traditional ebony and ivory keys, gradually breaking in over time. Play your RD-88 for long enough, and it’ll feel just like the well-used piano you first learned on. With the RD-88, you get the playing experience usually reserved for bespoke, handcrafted pianos costing hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Gig with confidence
Just because the RD-88 has a refined playing experience doesn’t mean it won’t take a beating. In fact, it quite easily handles the rigors of the road. The slim, streamlined design easily fits in the back of the van and is an absolute breeze to set up. This stage piano also comes equipped with an integrated speaker system, which is super convenient for everything from intimate venues to solo rehearsals. It doesn’t matter if you’re a regular around the local clubs and houses of worship or if you’re road-tripping across the continent — the RD-88’s ready for it all.
