Roland announces the new BK-7m, a portable backing module that can connect to a MIDI-compatible instrument, such as a keyboard, digital piano, or digital accordion.
It comes with hundreds of accompaniment styles and sounds.
The BK-7m includes 128-voice polyphony, an SSC Sound Engine with around 1,000 sounds and 57 drum kits, some of which include Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology. The BK-7m also includes over 400 accompaniment arrangement styles in 10 different rhythm families, allowing for varied music styles. Each accompaniment style has four variations that can be accessed with the touch of a button, each assigning the most suitable tones and effects to the real-time parts depending on the selected musical style.
The BK-7m is not just an arranger, it is a multimedia player as well. 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 any external MIDI compatible keyboard or controller, the BK-7m includes a MIDI wizard, so performers can plug in their MIDI device. The BK-7m also includes a composite video output so the audience or musician can follow lyrics and chord symbols while an SMF or KAR song is being played.
