At just under 10kg, the Roland BK-9 is lightweight and portable 76-note backing keyboard that's sophisticated enough for regular gigging.
It combines over 1700 onboard sounds with 70 drum kits and the ability to add your own backing tracks via USB. You won't get lost amongst all that power though: the two screens and logical, intuitive layout make it easy to direct your virtual band - there's all the features you need, and none that you don't. The ability to pre-set your ten favourite tones for any part makes it easy to change mid-set, too.
There's also the Virtual Tone Wheel sound engine which gives you legendary organ tones, and space for future expansion, with a User Tone area dedicated for upcoming BK-series sound collections.
Includes five independent multi-effects engines (MFX) offering an enormous range of sound processing possibilities, with three MFX dedicated to rhythms and two MFX dedicated to real-time parts. You can instantly adjust the levels of the rhythm and real-time parts, MFX parameters, and more simply by using the harmonic bars on the front panel.
A built-in 16-track sequencer makes composing and editing MIDI data simple, while the Rhythm Composer lets you create and customise your own rhythms with ease. The convenient Chord Loop feature instantly captures rhythm backings as WAV audio loops, and also makes it simple to build chord sequences from rhythms to use for composing in the sequencer.
