Overview

The Roland A-88MKII is supremely playable, with onboard creative tools for today’s musicians and producers. Roland’s acclaimed hammer-action keyboard and built-to-last quality combine with modern features like USB-C connectivity, RGB-lit controls and MIDI 2.0 (coming soon) for the best performance in its class.


A controller that plays like an instrument
When it comes to MIDI controllers, playability often seems like an afterthought. With the A-88MKII, Roland brings their acclaimed keyboard feel, enjoyed by professional players on stages around the world, to your studio. Its robust, wood construction creates a solid playing experience you can feel under your fingers. And you can easily adjust the sensitivity and responsiveness to match your unique playing style.


Deep expression

The A-88MKII has three user-definable zones, so you can layer and split the keyboard with different sounds or instruments. Roland’s unique pitch/mod lever and an array of RGB-lit knobs and pads give you expressive, hands-on control of your sound. And a sustain pedal input plus two fully assignable pedal inputs mean your feet can get in on the action too.


Creative control

Today's musical styles demand special production techniques. And some soft synths and modules don't always have the onboard tools you might like. The A-88MKII extends your creative arsenal with three configurable zones, advanced arpeggiator, chord memory and multipurpose pads that can trigger commands and events, and energize real-time performance.


MIDI 2.0 and USB-C

The A-88MKII uses the latest technologies for years of universal compatibility and convenience. Class compliant USB-C provides bus power and single cable connectivity with macOS, Windows and compatibility with iOS. And the A-88MKII is ready to take advantage of the extended capabilities of MIDI 2.0.

*When connecting the A-88MK2 to iOS devices with Lightning, Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit and A-88MKII AC power is required.


Custom control. Instant recall.
Customize the A-88MKII with the control app for macOS and Windows. See all your layers and control mappings at a glance and assign commands to the pads with custom colors for visual feedback. You can create custom setups to control specific soft synths or external hardware, and instantly recall everything with the handy Snap Shot function.


When less is more

Space is always at a premium in today's personal studios. The A-88MKII is designed to be as thin and shallow as possible while still retaining the smooth, dynamic playability that Roland instruments are known for. Surfaces are flat and edges are squared so they sit neat and flush against other gear or integrated into a studio desk.
