Roland A-88MKII 88-Note MIDI Keyboard Controller

A flagship keyboard controller that's ready for MIDI 2.0

Written by

Will Brook-Jones

The A-88MKII was designed from the ground-up for the modern-day producer and musician. A PHA-4 hammer-action keyboard provides a smooth playing feel, while RGB-lit controls, USB-C connectivity and a MIDI 2.0 ready architecture ensures its prepared for the future.

Play and Perform

Creating a great playing experience was the most important consideration during the design process. Roland are known for highly responsive, sensitive keys and this layout is no different; it can even be adjusted to suit your personal preferences.  

Streamlined Design

A slim, shallow build with flat surfaces and squared edges allows the controller to fit seamlessly into your studio setup. Its built from high-quality wood and other premium materials too, making it highly durable and an absolute pleasure to use. Roland craft instruments that last.

MIDI 2.0

The most significant update to MIDI since its initial release is just over the horizon. The engineering eggheads at Roland have subsequently built the A-8MKII to be universally compatible with any technological advancements – in particular MIDI 2.0. It’ll take full advantage of the new and exciting features that are promised by the next instalment.

Production Potential

Onboard tools allow for complex, layered productions. An advanced arpeggiator, chord memory, three customisable zones and triggerable, multipurpose pads provide multiple creative options during real-time performance.

The three zones let you split and layer the keyboard with an assortment of instruments and sounds. These can then be altered as you see fit via an intuitive modulation/pitch lever, alongside the pads and knobs. Plugging in a sustain pedal through the input results in a whole other creative avenue.  

Roland’s control app allows you to customise your experience even further. Reference mappings and layers quickly, and assign your commands to each pad using a variety of colours. It’s even possible to take control of external hardware and soft synths. Use the Snap Shot function to then immediately recall your saved parameters.
