Roland A-88Published on 03/25/13 at 13:24
Some of the features that motivated my choice were the 88 semi weighted keys with a very powerful touch and sensitivity response , the light and fancy design and the price.

There is a midi type of connection.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration and setup is quite simple , thanks to the technology that comes with this product , you get an instant connection with your working DAW and the power comes from its usb connectivity.

The manual is well designed , very easy to follow and visually easy to retain.



OVERALL OPINION

What I like most about it , is the fact that even if this is a very fancy midi controller you can still use it as a portable music tool.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most about it , is the fact that even if this is a very fancy midi controller you can still use it as a portable music tool.
The 88 keys semi-weighted sound and feel really realistic , the Ivory Feel-G technology really makes a huge difference.

The keys have advanced sensor technology, and the white keys are very comfortable, they have a soft surface that feels like real ivory.

This keyboard is USB power based which is even better , that way you don't extra cables and so you save space.

This product has also two knobs, two switches, and D-BEAM controller and a very lightweight and compact design that facilities movement.

My opinion about the value for the price is okay , this is quite an expensive product but the quality that is has , the realistic feel , it deserves the money.

Precision and quality of the sound is great if analyzing from the connectivity with your daw , no latency encountered.

Knowing what I know , I would get this product.

It has a midi connection that works really great with Pro Tools and other daw's .

UTILIZATION

The general configuration of the program it's very simple, yet very very fast.
The manual has a nice description regarding the knobs, slides, velocity sensitive keys, presets, program changes and MIDI channels.
The patch selection is easy to follow even for an amateur, it's very straight-forward and sensitive.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most about are the 88-key Ivory Feel-G keyboard , the lightweight and compact design , the Two knobs, two switches, the D-BEAM controller is also a great feature.

What I also like is the fact that is USB bus powered , is compatible with Windows Xp / Vista / Mac OSX and Windows 7 and the fact that this product can be connected to an Ipad.

My opinion regarding the price of this product is decent , you can buy this great usb midi controller online for about 1000 $ , which is not that much if you consider the 88 keys provided , the great feel , the weighted keys and the great design.
Precision and quality of the sound is very good, the knobs , the keys , everything responds very well , I haven't find any problems regarding its features.

I've tried several midi controller , this is one of the best that describes the feel of a real piano , however if you're fancy about different knobs , pads , and stuff , you can find a more complex kind of midi controller.

Knowing what I know , I would buy this product if I would search for something that is as close to a piano.

" Very good! I recommend ..."

Roland A-88Published on 02/13/14 at 19:46
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Good! No time to dwell tonight ...
but I am very happy with this keyboard.

If you want a keyboard with heavy keys, the "grand piano" genre, with a beautiful look and support twelve o'clock ultra simple, do not hesitate. It is worth its weight in gold.

And it moves easily, despite its good preparation.

UTILIZATION

Not advisable for those who want to solo ...

OVERALL OPINION

With experience, maybe I'd go for a slightly more versatile keyboard ...
but if they have the same level of quality as the A88

I use it every day for almost a year.

Default for my taste: it has little control and they could be placed on the hard keyboard (above the buttons), which would remove a little length to the keyboard and thus make a little less Kayak! !
