Roland E-86
High end of the SERIES E-1994, the E-86 has emerged with a price of more than 12,000 French francs TTC province.
Of 241 sounds, 56 internal styles, I guess he like the E-56 (a infrieur) a feature edition of sounds.
Compared to the E-56, Roland removed the 8th Bank of styles: the simplified style. They put up the crateur styles as in the E-70, the high-end E-SERIES in 1992. They added a reader / writer drive, and double the number of user programs: 128, then!
However, they removed the 6 tracks squenseur Why? No doubt that one is interested in further suprieurs MODELS: E-300, E-500, E-600 that came out later.
In any case the adding many more styles, there has been a lot of user programs, we change cres many styles, all thanks to the floppy drive. Question sound is the same as the E-16, E-36, E-56. The internal speakers are more powerful than the E-56. 2X7.5 W Rms.


The beginning is simple. APRS, I do not know.


I did not. Issue price, too expensive c'tait the era. Excellent synth otherwise. Ideal for piano bar, host of evening.

A bank of sounds and ditables large enough, some reverb and chorus effects, a lot of stuff on diskette through the drive internal arrangements, sounds, squence, sounds combinanaisons + styles + various configurations (very practical sc only).
Keyboard: 61 keys synth pitch bend wheel modulation joystick +
2 speakers + 1 subwoofer under the BTE, with a sufficient volume drummer not too nervous, or "atmosphere" an evening, if not a prvoir supplmentaire amplification.
Midi + audio connections (one between L + R audio in jack in the can s'avrer convenient to use the internal amplification) + headphone.


Everything is clear to a direct sound utiliastion + styles. To go further in bte various things and settings using the manual is required, but comfortable.
For the sound quality must be honnte: they taient trs good the era and included many styles of music today just dpasss. However, to use it is recommended (pluttl animation accessories, balls ,...), no one will make the diffrence with something more modern and much better when m me that the PSS Yam and sounds are not pouet pouet qd-se.
FYI, for those who remember it, c'tait the keyboard used by the guy who played music in the mission, "LARGE HEAD" the tl.

The possibility of its own arrangements CRER is when even trs apprciable is THE FIRST thing I've learned to do with the manual, allows for a his arrangements evolve over time. In the era I was in prfrais squenceur.


It's been over ten years I have, I use it more now because I no longer use arranger.
The sounds are the weak point today, although qu'ditables, but he is full of possibilities, and even when an instrument c'tait pro was released, which is still used at all srement case here in the provinces!. On OCCAZ, less than 450 can still do the trick for dance bands / accessories, or School of Music, and a ct arranger nine first prize is when not even the same CATEGORY.

Roland E-86
Keyboard arrengeur
midi.lecteur 3.5 inch disk drive
3 speaker INTEGRATED


The sounds are okay
the manual is very clear
The keyboard is very solid buy 10 years ago and not a single problem


I am the one used for years.
is that I love the most, with keyboards that can make music oriantal just found a floppy style oriantal and are inserted in the reader.
well its true that in our time is E86 exceeds 200 euros but it is the case.
with the experience I would do not choose because there is still another of the keyboard as roland G600 G800 G1000 series.
