Roland AX-7
In terms of keyboards matres new laptops, the current choice is limited. The AX-7 Submitted all the technical specifications that can be asked what type of hardware. May be missing aftertouch.


The keyboard is enjoyable to the touch. The hardware is not too heavy. It is easy to configure. It comes with a manual in French.


I use it with the expander ROLAND XV-5050, on scne for over six months. It changes the life of a claviriste. First, it is also scne Submitted on other group members (we scne in front of the solos, as guitarists). Then you learn to play with one hand, forcing simplify the game (the harmonic readability of the group becomes better because the keyboards are often chatty). Only small default: uses the AX-7 cells. There is the possibility to connect a transformer. But then it is connected to the world by two cables, the reader and MIDI, which increases the risk of dconnexion ...

Roland AX-7
Designed and keyboard really very practical. All orders of a standard keyboard are available and under the handle (sustain, modulation, tape, volume, preset change, launching the arpeggiator ...). TERRIBLE.


The manual is trs comprhensible and configuration is very easy. It changes a man! ! ! We play with Manir really natural.


I use it for 6 months with a Triton Rack and I'm singing in my band, which allows me to find myself in front of the scne! The icing on the gteau Controller is the D-beam I use mainly for CONTRL volume (to make "fade out" for example). It's really a keyboard gnial must be even more apprciable Midi connection with HF. For the price should not hsiter, you will have a different vision of scne.

Roland AX-7
Portable keyboard MIDI really full at any point of view: Bender, modulation, sustain, D-beam, aftertouch, layer, split, transpose ... Technically, there is no better jour.C this is the master MIDI Portable most elaborate.
MIDI OUT and MIDI IN. The sounds of the synth which depend so it will be affected.


The keyboard has 45 notes, light touch .... But relatively good at home.
The highlight is the ergonomics of the toy. It is a pleasure to have everything under his left hand! It controls all the effects pitch, modulation, D-beam, a very natural way.
The sustain is ideally placed just behind the handle on the run What can simultaneously use other fingers to the bar of expression or the pitch while playing on the chorus with his right hand.
The changes of sounds are also very well placed. As such, it can store up to 128 presets in the order you want of course. Great for live!
At first we took a little head to the allocation and conversion sounds of the synth connected externally to the AX-7, in case you are not used. Otherwise nothing really confusing with a little determination ...
The manual is very average MIDI for newcomers (lords of Roland, everyone does not control both at MIDI you!) But is understandable because even .... As long as one is addicted to coffee ....


I use it for 2 months and I really enjoy!
It's really a great machine because of its plastic at first, but also by the fact that the AX-7 "throws!" simply. People hallucinate with this type of product, and the game stage of your group with everything to gain (the show live !!!!).
And which foot you can walk freely, jumping all over the place on frenzied solos!
It is also necessary to remember that the MIDI cable gives you ILICO presto feet on the ground!
Question diet, 6 R6 of good quality will cheerfully over 10 hours: the baby is not hungry, more can still be the battery level controller with the AX-7 (so no nasty surprises). For rehearsals you can always use a transformer (not supplied! Roland thank you), I recommend to live: for the risk of disconnection is then increased.

The value for money is very interesting: 450 eur nine nirvana on stage (the reclusive pianists on stage behind the rack will understand me). Concert-goers at the bottom of your room, go your way, the AX-7 is a very keyboard SHOW.
Technically speaking, the keyboard is the most extensive to date in its class to be said along the conccurents do not push.
That's why I recommend it without hesitation. This type of toy that every pianist should have fun on stage! Really FUN!
Warning to hard drugs: To consume without moderation .......

Roland AX-7
Keyboard matre PORTABLE! to play standing, allowing for a real game when you are scne keyboardist. MIDI IN / OUT. 6 batteries. D-BEAM. velocity. 3 LED symbols. lots of presets. pitch-bend. modulation. sustain. No AC adapter [!]. No software config.


The touch keyboard is good, this type of touch dpend we are accustomed.

What is really enjoyable is the ergonomics:
- The handling is impeccable. IDAL weight. The buttons fall under the same fingers in the oddest positions. Being a self-taught, I always jou with the palm slightly lower than the keyboard (instead of being on top) for me to play this fawn is idalie.
- The left hand under the CONTRL is perfectly placed, but may be knob the "volume" that could have come more prs of thumb, be larger and less slippery to play with during play . The sustain button is perfect. The pitch bend ribbon is nickel too. expression for the bar, see below
- The select patches on scne is easy, but it must be s'entraner even when, as it must be dplacer his left hand to + / - and it no longer holds b you, or use the right hand, but the transition is slower. To go fast, we put on the main preset 11, 22, 33, 44, and on "double-supports" a button to select the patch. The loading time of the patch is IMMEDIATE.

Question configuration is a bit harder: you must be typing the entire manual, and do many tests.

Matriser for the game, it is necessary all the same time: It took me good 80 hours before playing like a normal keyboard. But the continued rise because the possibilities are so numerous that AC becomes a tool crtivit to make a game of scne.

In rpetition and concert prvoir always spare batteries, I found myself as a crtin more than once!

Take a scratch or a string to get the MIDI cable near the shoulder strap: If the cable is 'worth' on the plug, there is no chance for that one hour he did not dtach.

If one wants to "turn" on stage, do as many laps in each direction except the cable is twisted and then the ...


I use it since it came out. Lead singer keyboard in a band, I did not have much choice: it's not sitting singing trs funky on stage and sing standing up behind a keyboard requires constantly looking for some notes that we want to dance a minimum (!)

So no choice and no choice either: the AX-7 is the only modern portable keyboard. A shame, because the lack of competition is that there is little prospect of evolution. Therefore the do-it-same, (I which I can not).

This is unfortunate because the use of force, I would have to see a few (from - to + important):

- Color: white, fit, must be dud if you see more with the keyboard as the keyboard player. What I would have loved it in the same ngatif hull and black keys, clear button and # key. I feel that I rsisterai not attempt to paint it one day (in yellow can be ...)

- One or two pots of supplmentaires ct t the volume would welcome.

- The expression key is too sensitive: losqu'on supports a little bit, it floats between 0 and 100. You press a little more: we go live 100. For the expression prcisment CONTRL is impossible: it's a shame!
(Because if the dbeam is very prcis, you can not use his left hand while playing, it should be done with the right hand while we take note with the sustain!)

- No software, all must be hand ... Mr Roland Please!

- No aftertouch: it's really a con, excuse me ... It would have t IDEAL on this kind of keyboard, in the solos. Sometimes I pretend to have, but by playing with the bar expression has a lot of opportunity and less.

Besides it has a fantastic tool, and its largest MRIT is to exist, because without it I would have less pleasure to the scne.
