The black Roland AX-Edge is a keytar synthesizer offering customizable looks and expressive playability for keyboardists on stage and in the studio. It features 49 full-sized, velocity-sensitive keys with channel aftertouch, over 500 preset tones, split and layer modes, and versatile controls including a modulation bar, a pressure-sensitive pitch ribbon, and an assignable knob. Dedicated buttons provide immediate access to the arpeggiator, song player, and programs such as leads, bases, brass, and the vocoder, which utilizes a 1/4" mic input with adjustable gain.
Enhance your sounds with the built-in effects, EQ, and compression, and edit parameters wirelessly via the downloadable AX-Edge Editor iOS/Android app, and hook up an expression pedal (available separately) to the 1/4" pedal input for hands-free parameter adjustment. Connect the AX-Edge as a traditional controller or sound module using the MIDI I/O or USB Type-B computer port. Alternatively, utilize its Bluetooth MIDI capability to trigger a compatible virtual instrument. 1/4" main and headphone outputs allow easy routing to headphones and a mixing console or wireless transmitter.
A second USB port (Type-A) accommodates a standard USB flash drive, which can be used to hold system data and playable songs. Power the AX-Edge via eight rechargeable AA NiMH batteries (available separately) for up to four hours of untethered operation, or connect the included AC adapter for extended performances. A silver Edge Blade trim piece is included for out-of-the-box visual customization.
