Unique Playing Experience with Live Controls

  • Two assignable knobs allow you to manipulate various effects and parameters on sounds, auto accompaniment, and more in real time, just like on an analog synthesizer.
  • Modify the sounds in your performance with Filter, Pitch, and Modulation effects while holding the Motion Effect button.
  • The pitch-bend wheel adjusts the pitch of the sound, adding expressivity to sounds like the guitar, sax, and trumpet.
  • Hold down the Articulation button to reproduce the sounds of playing techniques that are unique to specific acoustic instruments like guitars, flutes, sax, slap bass, and more.
  • Direct Category Access buttons let you instantaneously access the sounds and accompaniments you prefer for the musical genre of your choice.

820 High-Quality Sounds with 64-Note Polyphony

  • 820 high-quality instrument sounds including 294 panel voices, 28 drum/SFX kits, and 458 XGlite voices, all with 64-note polyphony.
  • Layer Mode: Not only can you play just one single sound, but you can layer a second sound over the first sound.
  • Split Mode: You can play one sound on the left hand and a different sound on the right hand.

Real-Time Backing Tracks

  • 290 auto-accompaniment styles provide real-time band backing tracks (rhythm + bass + chord accompaniment) that you can control by simply playing root notes or chords with your left hand.
  • Smart Chord technology allows players of all levels to achieve complex chord harmony using only a few fingers, driving the Style engine to produce incredible-sounding ensemble accompaniments.

Capture Sounds and Play Them Back on Your Keyboard

With Quick Sampling samples can be captured using the aux input, microphone input, or onboard USB audio interface, and played back as part of your performance:

  • Capture, edit, and playback up to 4 samples, max 9.6 sec/sample.
  • Normal: The pitch of the sound varies depending on the key you play.
  • Loop: The sample is played in a loop without changing the pitch.
  • One-shot: The sample is played only once without changing the pitch.

Create Music Like a DJ

With Groove Creator, you can lay down a beat, tweak the groove, adjust the mix, and create music like a DJ. Choose from 152 arpeggio phrases with the press of a single key, and quickly capture your inspiration with the 6-track MIDI recorder.

  • Create your own groove with intro, section change, and musical climax. By turning each track on/off, altering sections, or adding various effects using the live control knobs you have real-time control of your own EDM tracks.
  • Once you have made a track you like, you can save it to a USB device as an audio file.

Plug in a Microphone and a Portable Music Player

  • The 1/4″ microphone input allows you to connect a microphone, so you can sing along while you play, hear your voice through the instrument’s speakers, and even record your performance to USB audio. The built-in Melody Suppressor lowers the volume of vocals and melody lines of the original recordings, leaving that part open for you to play or sing.
  • The 3.5mm aux input allows you to connect your portable music player, Android/iOS device, mixer, or computer and uses the instrument’s speakers to play back the audio and jam along your favorite songs.

Powerful 12W Speaker System with Mega Boost

  • The 6W+6W amplifiers power the high-definition speakers, delivering electrifying, crystal-clear sound, and offering solid support in standalone performance situations. The Mega Boost function lets you greatly increase your sound level by +6 dB at the press of a button.
  • Plug in headphones for quiet play at any time.

  • Record your performances to USB flash drives. The USB to Device port lets you load and save your settings and songs to a USB flash drive, as well as transfer data from your computer.
