Amazing sound selection covers virtually every genre
Power up the Roland BK-9, and you've got access to over 1,700 built-in instrument sounds and 70 drum kits. From vibrant organs and pianos to all manner of orchestral and percussion sounds, the BK-9 is equipped for virtually any production. And 22 of these sounds boast Roland's acclaimed SuperNATURAL technology, giving you incredibly realistic acoustic instrument sounds that are amazingly expressive. The BK-9 series is also ready for future expansion with BK Series sound collections.
New built-in rhythms, remastered for world-class sound quality
Consider the BK-9 arranger keyboard to be the most versatile backing band you've ever worked with. From modern rock to polka, 540 built-in rhythms are ready to fill out your arrangement. Best of all, the rhythms have been remastered with the BK-9's upgraded soundset and new studio effects, so you've got radio-ready sound quality right from the start.
iOS support gives you a more immersive experience
While the BK-9 is an incredibly complete solution for music production, iOS compatibility can enhance your experience even further. The BK-9 is compatible with Roland Wireless Connect, enabling cable-free communication with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch via Roland's optional WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter (not included) for recording. You can also connect your iPad directly to the BK-9 (using Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit), giving you access to a number of helpful apps. To name a few, the BK Partner app lets you select tones and rhythms from your iPad, the Air Recorder app lets you jam and record on your iPhone or iPad, and the Lyrics Viewer app displays SMF lyrics on your iPad for karaoke-style performances.
