Songwriters and performers alike will be pleased with the wide-ranging sounds and powerful arranger engine of the Roland E-A7 61-key arranger workstation. You'll have ample hands-on control, with 156 dedicated function buttons that allow you to make changes fast and efficiently. Navigation is always simple thanks to the dual-screen layout, which displays your backing styles on the left and your instrument sounds on the right. The E-A7 even packs a high-quality microphone input with dedicated vocal effects. Complete with backing styles from a wide range of countries and regions, the Roland E-A7 is an exceptional arranger keyboard.

Powerful arranger for live performance

If you're a solo performer who needs an arranger keyboard as your backing band, you'll be well served by the Roland E-A7. Practically all of your most-needed functions are assigned to dedicated buttons, and you have six faders for instant control over the volume of any instrument part. Assign one-shot audio samples or even MIDI phrases to the six pads, and trigger them anytime during your performance. And seven user-assignable buttons allow you instant access to anything else you want to do. When you're performing live, you don't want to be distracted by the technical aspects of your keyboard, and that's just one reason why Music Experience can recommend the Roland E-A7.

Over 1,500 sounds, with backing styles from all over the world

From pianos, EPs, and organs to strings, brass, and more, the Roland E-A7 arranger keyboard has you covered with over 1,500 essential instrument sounds. You get a wide range of instruments from all over the world, too, including authentic sounds from Indonesia, India, Vietnam, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East. You'll have a great selection of global backing styles too, created by top musicians from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America. You could gig anywhere in the world with the E-A7, and you'd have the sounds and backing styles needed to fit right in.

Built-in song player supports WAV, MP3, and MIDI file playback

The built-in song player on the Roland E-A7 is just as useful for playing some music between sets as it is for importing pre-created MIDI files to play along with. It can even serve as an impromptu karaoke system: when using WAV files, you can use the Center Cancel feature to minimize the recorded vocals to leave room for your own voice. The song player can act as a recorder too, allowing you to record your entire performance as a WAV file and save it to a USB stick (not included).

What Roland Says...

The E-A7 is a versatile arranger keyboard for musicians needing professional sounds and authentic backing styles from all over the world. Using the E-A7 is fast and intuitive thanks to its logical dual-screen layout—styles on the left and sounds on the right, with most options having dedicated, quick-access buttons. You can import WAV files to create your own instruments, or even sample directly from the keyboard. And with the powerful E-A7 Tone Manager software, you can use your computer to edit and organize user tones and drum kits, work with samples, and more. Singers will appreciate the microphone input with dedicated vocal effects, while the whole keyboard is easy to gig with, weighing in at just 8 kg/18 lbs. Wherever you’re going with your music, the E-A7 will help you get there.

Extensive Backing Styles, Including 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, 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

An Entire World of Sound at Your Fingertips

The E-A7 offers over 1,500 essential sounds including grand piano, electric piano, organ, strings, 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.

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. In addition, the E-A7 is equipped with an onboard sampling function for creating your own custom sounds, such as drum beats or even backing vocals. Everything you need to polish the sound, including applying effects, is already on board. You can arrive at the gig, try out ideas at the sound check, and quickly perfect your sound before the show starts.

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

Some arranger keyboards include a lot of functions, but this can make them complicated and difficult to use—not ideal when you’re in front of a crowd of people expecting a great night out. 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.

All the Essentials for a Smooth Gig at Your Command

When you’re at a gig, you just need things to work, so 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; whatever you need to do, you can do it right away without lifting your hand off the lever.

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. It’s simple to use—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.

Weighs Just 8 kg/18 lbs.—No Pain, All Gain

Although it’s great to bring everything you need to the gig, carrying a heavy keyboard is, quite literally, a pain. The E-A7 makes life easy for gigging musicians in two ways: first off, it’s got everything necessary for a great performance, so there are no extra boxes and wires to drag you down. Second, its lightweight design makes it easy to transport to and from the show. Packing a lot of power into a compact 61-key format, the only pain you’ll get from the E-A7 is having to do yet another encore—which is a good problem to have.

Versatile Song Player That Supports SMF and WAV/MP3 Audio

The E-A7’s onboard song player reads Standard MIDI Files (SMF) as well as WAV and 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 Center 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—a great way to promote your music and get more bookings

Flexible User Programs Put You in Control

Since the E-A7 has plenty of buttons and sliders, most of the “must-haves” are already at your fingertips. But you can also store a variety of settings within a single program, including the on/off status of essentials like Part, Auto Fill, and Input EFX. This extra layer of control means you can easily customize the keyboard’s setup for each song during the gig. Programs from Roland’s BK arranger series can also be accessed directly from a USB memory stick

Manage User Tones/Drum Kits, Samples, and More on Your Compute

The E-A7 Tone Manager software lets you enhance your E-A7 experience via a Mac or Windows computer. Librarian, editor, and sample creator functions are available for building user tones and drum kits, adjusting performance setups, and managing all your E-A7 tone data. With multiple parameters shown on your large computer display, it’s even easier to customize and organize E-A7 settings for any musical situation.
