Roland announce two brand new slim, lightweight MIDI controllers, the A-49 and A-88. As the names suggest, the A-49 features 49 pro-quality keyboard action keys, whereas the A-88 is larger, featuring 88 of Roland's Ivory Feel-G keys.
Both the A-49 and A-88 come with a 'SuperNatural' button, which automatically assigns their controls to control a SuperNatural sound module. This makes them ideal for use as a second-tier keyboard with products such as Roland's Jupiter-50 and Jupiter-80. Both also have a D-Beam controller, meaning that you can control a sound parameter of your choice simply by moving your hand up and down - an excellent live performance or creative studio tool!
Both keyboards feature 2 assignable dials and buttons for controlling a DAW and/or software synths and both also come bundled with Cakewalk SONAR LE software for Windows so you can get composing right away! You can even use them with compatible iPad apps by connecting them via an Apple Camera Connection Kit.
The Roland A-49 will be available in either a black or white finish and the A-88 will feature a number of additional features such as a split mode.
