The new Roland A-49 is a full-size 49-key keyboard available in pearl white and black finishes.
The A-49’s keys have a rounded shape. Other changes have been made which are designed to reduce mechanical noise and eliminate vertical shake
The A-49 can assign all its controllers automatically for utilizing an external SuperNATURAL sound module such as the Integra-7. It can also be used as a second keyboard for controlling synthesizers that have onboard SuperNATURAL sounds, such as the Jupiter-80 and Jupiter-50.
The A-49 weighs less than six pounds/2.5 kilograms and is powered from your computer’s USB bus — no power cable or adapter is required.
The A-49 provides connections via its recessed rear panel. Two knobs, two switches, and the D-BEAM controller are available. Dedicated octave buttons offer control of the key scale, and a transpose button is provided for adjusting the scale in semitone steps; LED indicators give you visual feedback of your octave/transpose settings. Other settings can be accessed via the Function button, which lets you use the keys to perform additional tasks printed above the keyboard.
The A-49 can be connected to an iPad via Apple’s Camera Connection Kit.
