Roland A-49, finished in Black, delivers one of a new range of affordable and portable USB MIDI Controllers loaded with a professional feeling keyboard action. Roland A-49 Black features a full-size keyboard and comes designed for musicians seeking a simple, easy-to-use MIDI controller with pro-quality playing feel. The controls on A-49 can also be assigned automatically to any SuperNATURAL sound module or synthesizer to maximise expression and playability.
Roland A-49 provides clean connections via its recessed rear panel, so you can place a computer monitor or laptop in the perfect position for creating music. Two knobs, two switches, and the D-BEAM controller are all easily accessible and intelligently arranged to make your workflow fast and fluid. Dedicated octave buttons offer immediate control of the key scale, and a transpose button is provided for adjusting the scale in semitone steps; LED indicators give you instant visual feedback of your octave/transpose settings. Other settings can be accessed via the Function button, which lets you use the keys to perform additional tasks printed above the keyboard.
While there are small MIDI keyboards that can be used with the iPad, A-49 gives you pro playability as well as mobility. Its clean, clutter-free surface and excellent keyboard feel keeps your fingers on the keys and your mind on the music. Roland A-49 can be connected to the iPad via Apple's Camera Connection Kit.
