Roland Now Shipping the BK-7m
Roland announces that the BK-7m Backing Module is now shipping.
The portable unit can connect to a MIDI-compatible instrument, such as a keyboard, digital piano, or digital accordion, with hundreds of onboard accompaniment styles and sounds.
The BK-7m includes 128-voice polyphony and is equipped with a SSC Sound Engine with 1,000 sounds and 57 drum kits, some of which include Roland's SuperNATURAL technology. The BK-7m also includes about 400 accompaniment arrangement styles in 10 different rhythm families. Each accompaniment style has four variations.
The BK-7m is also a multimedia player. Backing tracks in SMF, KAR, MP3, and WAV format can be accessed from the USB memory key input, and audio can also be recorded in WAV format to a USB memory key. For connectivity to an external MIDI compatible keyboard or controller, the BK-7m includes a MIDI wizard, so performers can plug in their MIDI device and start playing. The BK-7m also includes a composite video output so the audience or musician can follow lyrics and chord symbols on an external display while an SMF or KAR song is being played.

The BK-7m is available now with a suggested retail price of $1,499.00.
