Roland A-88 Keyboard
Not everyone who owns and uses a MIDI keyboard would necessarily identify as a piano player, and that can be something of a frustration for those who have been playing long before there were devices that hooked up to computers to play sounds. Having an instrument that truly feels and responds like a piano is a great asset for this specific subset of musicians. The Roland A-88 MIDI keyboard speaks directly to this issue, with its Ivory Feel-G keyed with Escapement; this feature simulates the feel of a real piano, particularly the hammer lifting off of the strings and thereby giving this unit a real-feeling performance. You can also connect sustain and expression pedals to the A-88 to further the real deal experience. In addition to being compatible with Mac and Windows computers, this MIDI keyboard can also work with apps on the iPad via Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit. If you’re looking for a fully-functional modern instrument that plays like a grand piano, look no further than the Roland A-88.
