The E-A7 from Roland is a versatile 61-key arranger keyboard with over 1,500 tones from all over the world with a library of backing styles from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and South America. It features WAV file import and onboard sampling functions, and is equipped with 156 dedicated buttons for fast access to commonly used functions.

Featuring a logical dual-screen layout, with backing styles on the left and sounds on the right, the E-A7 allows you to create your own instrument. You can import samples or sample directly from the keyboard. There is a 1/4" microphone input jack with dedicated vocal effects and controls on the front panel so you can just plug in and sing.

Furthermore, the compact 61-key format, weighing in at 17.6 lb, makes life easy for the gigging musician in two ways – it's got everything necessary for a great performance so there are no extra boxes and wires to carry with you, and it's easy to transport to and from the show.

Authentic Arrangements from All Over the World

While the E-A7 excels at Western music, it's equally strong for music from other parts of the world too, with a generous array of global backing styles crafted by skilled musicians from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and South America. It doesn't matter where in the world you play it - the E-A7 will fit right in

Expand the Onboard Sounds with WAV Sample Import

The 1,500 built-in tones of the E-A7 are just the beginning. Most gigging musicians have collected a library of tried-and-tested samples over the years - and you can use them in the E-A7 thanks to the WAV import option. But you can also use the onboard sampling function to create custom sounds too, including drum beats or even backing vocals

All the Essentials for a Smooth Gig, at Your Fingertips

The E-A7 gives direct access to the most common functions needed when you play. Six phrase pads trigger one-shot audio samples or MIDI phrases just where you need them. You can define and switch to alternate musical scales at the touch of a button. There are also six sliders that can adjust the volume of the various parts, such as drums, bass, and the accompaniment. Finally, there are seven user-assignable buttons above the pitch bend lever for your own custom requirements, so whatever you need to do, you can do it right away without lifting your hands off the lever

An Entire World of Sound, at Your Fingertips

The E-A7 offers over 1,500 essential sounds including piano, electric piano, organ, string, brass, and many more. There are instruments from all over the world too, including authentic sounds from the vibrant musical cultures of the Middle East, Indonesia, India, Vietnam, and Eastern Europe. Every sound has been developed in collaboration with accomplished musicians, each one an expert in their local music scene, for the utmost realism and quality. And since the sounds are categorized by region, you can find the perfect sound for your music quickly and easily

Fast, Logical Layout with Backing Styles on the Left, Tones on the Right

The E-A7 is logically laid out, showing backing styles on the left and sounds on the right, and each side has its own LCD screen showing the essential information. And with 156 buttons for fast access to the functions you use most, you'll spend more time playing and less time panicking about finding the right button

Plug in the Mic, Set the Level, and Sing

If vocals are an important part of your repertoire, the E-A7 has a microphone input along with dedicated volume controls on the front panel; just turn the knob to instantly adjust the vocal level, with no menus in sight. You also get an array of pro-grade vocal effects to add polish to your performance, with a versatile selection of editable reverbs and delays on board

Versatile SMF Song Player that Also Plays WAV/MP3 Audio Files

The E-A7's onboard song player reads Standard MIDI Files (SMF) as well as WAV or MP3 audio files. Comprehensive playback options allow you to repeat a section of the song or jump to a different section, and if you're using WAV files you can minimize the presence of any vocals using the Centre Cancel feature, leaving space for your own voice. You can even record your entire performance as a WAV file and save it to USB memory
