Packed with authentic sounds

To be truly great, a stage piano should have authentic sounds with character.

And for extra versatility, there’s a curated selection of acoustic and electronic sounds from our historic legacy using the same sound engine found in our flagship synthesizers.

Fast, easy-to-use interface

Thanks to their intuitive controls and welcoming, ergonomic layout, RD stage pianos have become famous for their user friendliness. The RD-88 continues the tradition, giving you only what you need for confident and expressive performances. Critical controls are clearly marked and always in reach, so you can quickly find your favorite sounds, add effects, and shape the overall tonal balance to suit the venue.

Integrate your soft synths

Sometimes you need a very specific sound or the unique capabilities of a particular soft synth or sample library. The RD-88 offers three zones that you can configure with internal sounds — or you can integrate and control soft synths from Apple MainStage. This makes it easy to duplicate the sound of a track live or mix your favorite soft synths with the RD-88’s own sounds.

Its lightweight, roadworthy build makes it easy to transport and quick to set up, even on tiny stages or in tight rehearsal spaces. And with its über-convenient integrated speaker system, you won't need an amp or PA system for those small coffee house gigs or hotel room jams. With its outstanding portability, great sounds, and classic RD playability, Roland hit it out of the park with the RD-88. Gigging keyboardists here at Music Experience are blown away. We think you will be, too.
