Roland BK-9 Backing Keyboard  - Information

Roland BK-9 adds to the popular BK-series of backing keyboards, offering a 76-note flagship accompaniment keyboard loaded with professional sounds ideal for solo performers and also hobbyists who appreciate sophistication and quality. Roland BK-9 Backing Keyboard combines the incredible and highly acclaimed SuperNatural sound engine with a powerful accompaniment section taking this concept to new levels of performance. BK9 also features the legendary Virtual Tone Wheel Organ, USB recording plus a professional 16-track sequencer, giving you all the tools you need for delivering great-sounding performances.

BK-9 weighs in less than 21 pounds (9.4kg), offering the ideal keyboard for mobile sessions/gigging featuring an impressive 1,700 sounds plus 70 drum kits, including 22 SuperNATURAL tones. Dedicated harmonic bars give a truly authentic vintage organ feel and a the advanced effects section, featuring five independent multi-effects engines (MFX), plus dedicated mastering effects, gives you all the power you will ever need. It even comes with an inbuilt XLR mic input for connecting a microphone and a composite video output for displaying lyrics and photos ideal if your repertoire includes Karaoke.

When playing live, there’s nothing worse than reaching the end of the song and realising you can’t find the sounds for the next song. BK-9 lets you quickly recall your ten favourite tones for each real-time part, so you can concentrate on playing rather than worrying about finding your trusted, favourite sounds. You also get 1000 onboard Music Assistants which provide instant setups for every musical style, and you can save an unlimited number of custom setups to USB memory giving peace of mind and protection from data loss.

You can play BK-9 along with your favourite music from either USB or iPhone. Alternatively, you can also stream the music wirelessly (using the optional WNA1100-RL Roland Wireless Connect system) and even record yourself back to iPhone using the free Air Recorder app, or simply hardwire via the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit. The optional USB memory also lets you play along with WAV audio files, but here's the clever bit: you can change the key and adjust the speed of the audio, and even reduce the sound of pre-recorded vocals so you can sing over the top.

The rhythm section is the backbone of any performance, and Roland BK-9 comes brimming with full-ensemble accompaniments in almost every musical style imaginable. This means you get to lead the world’s most versatile backing band as you play, but without the tantrums or egos. The 540 built-in rhythms have all been remastered with the BK-9’s superior sounds and powerful new effects processing for impressive audio quality straight from the recording studio. You can also add unlimited additional rhythms via USB, and you can play along with MP3, WAV, and SMF files as well, so you don’t need to plug in a separate audio player.
