With over 1,100 tones to choose from, this lightweight yet sturdy stage piano provides unmatched versatility.

SuperNATURAL Piano Sound Engine Reproduces an Authentic Concert Grand

At the heart of the RD-88 lies Roland's SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, which provides rich, complex tones modeled after Roland's flagship V-Piano Grand. With 88 weighted hammer-action keys, the RD-88's PHA-4 Standard keyboard provides a premium feel for expressive playability. Four onboard speakers powered by Roland's latest generation of onboard amplification provide rich, full-range sound.

Over 1,100 Tones for Virtually Any Musical Situation

Whether you need an authentic grand piano, vintage electric piano, or modern synth, the RD-88 has you covered with over 1,100 onboard tones. The Piano Designer feature lets you customize piano sounds by adjusting damper resonance, hammer noise, and key-off noise. A variety of electric pianos, organs, strings, brass, and synths provide a world of vintage and modern sounds at your fingertips.

Robust Connectivity Options for Studio and Stage

For live performance, the RD-88 features balanced XLR outputs, an input for connecting external audio sources, and a 1/4" headphone jack. USB connectivity provides MIDI data transmission for using the RD-88 as a MIDI controller. For mobile and studio use, Bluetooth MIDI and audio lets you stream high-quality audio from your smart device or connect to music apps like GarageBand.

Premium Features for Optimized Playability

From the textured pitch bend and modulation stick to the dedicated transpose button, master EQ and more, the RD-88 is designed with the performer in mind. Layer and split two sounds across the keyboard. Adjust touch sensitivity to your playing style. An intuitive control layout puts dedicated buttons and knobs at your fingertips.
