Roland RD pianos have been the choice of professional keyboardists for more than 30 years, appearing on stages around the world. Now you can have the acclaimed RD sound and playability in a lighter, more accessible and more affordable instrument.
- Lightweight and compact design for easy transport and setup
- PHA-4 ivory feel piano-touch keyboard for world-class playability
- SuperNATURAL pianos and electric pianos based on acclaimed RD series
- Easy-to-use interface optimized for performance
- Three zones with external control and Apple MainStage integration
- Room-filling, onboard speaker system
For over three decades, RD pianos have been trusted by professionals, night after night, on stages the world over. One key reason is how playable they are, how connected you feel when you play one. You get sturdy controls and smooth, reliable keyboard action that feels natural – never stiff, never spongy.
A great stage piano needs sounds that are authentic and have character. Roland RD-88 draws upon its rich heritage and features SuperNATURAL pianos and electric pianos that can go from sparkle to grit with a few knob twists. And for extra versatility, there's a curated selection of acoustic and electronic sounds from Roland's historic legacy using the same sound engine found in their flagship synthesizers.
RD pianos are easy to connect with thanks to their intuitive controls and friendly layout. RD-88 is no different, giving you just what you need for confident and expressive performances. Vital controls are clearly marked and always in reach so you can quickly find your favorite sounds, add effects or shape the tonal balance to suit the venue.
Integrate soft synths
Sometimes you need a very specific sound or the unique capabilities of a particular soft synth or sample library. RD-88 has three zones that can be configured with internal sounds or can integrate and control soft synths from Apple MainStage. This makes it simple to duplicate the sound of a track live or mix favorite soft synths with RD-88's own palette of sounds.
Fits your life
RD-88's clean and compact design fits neatly into your lifestyle. Its lightweight and sturdy build makes it easy to take with you and quick to set up, even on small stages or in cramped rehearsal spaces. The built-in room-filling speaker system is ultra-convenient and lets you play with less clutter and less fuss.
