The Roland E-09 arranger keyboard's sounds and styles are nothing but first class even though the price might say "low end." Building on the success of Roland's popular E-series arranger keyboards, the E-09 ushers in a brand-new look, feel, and sound for the family. With its high-quality sound engine, pro-style appearance, and powerful specifications—including a newly designed library of sounds and interactive styles—the Roland keyboard raises the quality standard for entry-level arrangers.
With a global array of interactive musical accompaniments onboard, the Roland E-09 puts a world of colorful and authentic music under your fingertips. Master programmers from around the world have created special Styles for the E-09, spotlighting the Western, Middle Eastern, and Asian cultures.
As Roland's technology continues to expand and improve, so too does the user-friendliness of its instruments. This electronic keyboard is no exception, as it provides a clearly labeled lineup of large, friendly buttons across its front panel, logically organized into task types. There are one-touch Tone and Style locator buttons to help find the sound and style quickly, plus an array of helpful, dedicated controls to make navigating and playing the keyboard a breeze.
Low Profile, Big Sound
The Roland E-09 arranger keyboard introduces a professional-grade industrial design to the E family. Its black metallic finish, coupled with a slim, streamlined chassis design, makes the E-09 eye catching and easy to transport. Despite its slim physique, the E-09 outputs an impressively big sound from its built-in stereo speaker system. To further enhance the sound, the built-in effects processor can add space, depth, and other special effects. There are 47 types of multi-effects to choose from, plus eight varieties of reverbs and choruses.
A great sound engine is only the beginning. The Roland E-09 keyboard allows you to add space, depth, and other special effects to your sounds with its onboard multi-effects processor. There are 47 types of multi-effects to choose from, plus 8 varieties of reverbs and choruses. A powerful bonus: Each sound within a simultaneous-patch group can have its own effects assignment.

No User Styles and the styles offered mostly blow. There are a multitude of "World" styles to pander to the Asian market but only one really bad Foxtrot. Who are they making this keyboard for? I wish Roland would talk to those of us who actually make a living using these keyboards instead of the Asian nerds who obviously designed this one. The $2oo Yamahas have better styles than this thing. Don't bother with the other reviews. Those guys are part-timers and hobbyists and know little of what makes a good portable. I've been using these keyboards for over 25 years. The Roland E-09 is just terrible. I just returned mine and after $100 in shipping and the 15% restock fee I'll have paid dearly for my mistake.
I've only had it for a short time. Still checking out all the features. After tracking a couple songs (I'm a songwriter), working great to date. Nice to have some new sounds after using my previous keyboard for 7 years.
I own one of these keyboards and find that the wide range of sounds, easy to use functions, and great sound quality make this keyboard very effective and fun to use. I did, however, have a few issues. The non weighted keys make is more difficult to play, and most of the piano sounds don't sound very good without a suspension pedal (under most circumstances.) Otherwise, a great keyboard.
I bought this thinking I was getting a fair keyboard for a decent price. I was wrong, it is amazing!! The sound quality and features on this thing will blow you away. I was impressed when i took it out of the box, and when I turned it on and played it I was even more impressed. This is a great addition to any band and what you get for the price is unbelievable.
