The RD-88 offers a professional playing experience and high-quality sound in a lightweight, compact and affordable format.
The RD name is associated with excellence. There’s a reason why they’ve been so popular with pro musicians for the last thirty years. The main draw? A superb key feel. They are solid yet smooth, with a natural action that’s extremely reliable - you won’t find any sponginess or stiffness here.
A light yet sturdy build allows you to easily take the RD-88 to practice sessions and live shows; you can setup and breakdown extremely quickly, and it’ll fit into the most cramped spaces around.
Sounds can make or break a piano. In the case of this one, you’ll have access to bucket loads of natural and authentic tones. This is all thanks to the range of SuperNATURAL pianos/electric pianos which are fresh out of the development oven. They’re complimented by a series of electronic and acoustic sounds that hark back to Roland’s storied past. These utilise the ZEN-Core synthesis architecture that characterised the brands classic synths. This depth and breadth of contrasting sound makes the RD-88 incredibly versatile.
An extremely simple user interface makes this piano a breeze to play and explore. Each of the integrated controls are within easy reach and are clearly marked out. As a result, searching for your preferred effects and sounds is incredibly straightforward.
Each of the RD-88’s three configurable zones can have either internal sounds assigned to them, or control and integrate soft synths via Apple MainStage. This leads to an excellent sonic mixture of onboard sounds and third-party samples and synthesizers.
