Stage-Ready Sounds or Custom-Made Tones; It’s Up to You
Roland have made sure the AX-Edge is anything but basic and generic and have provided you with some fantastic, stage-ready classic sounds to play with.
Designed for use on stage, this great set of sounds is driven by Roland’s own cutting edge technology and gives you access to fat bass sounds, edgy lead tones and all sorts of keyboard sounds, allowing you to take the lead or support your band however you like.
But that’s not all! Equipped with Bluetooth MIDI capability, you can connect the Roland AX-Edge to the AX-Edge editor app and customise your sounds wirelessly.
You can even create splits and layers to get the most out of the 49 full-sized keys.
There’s also a whole host of amazing new effects such as master compressor and EQ so you can really refine your sound to perfection wherever you play.
Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about your notes and effects unnaturally cutting off when you change sounds mid-performance thanks to the awesome Tone Remain function which keeps everything flowing.
Great, Two-Handed Control
Unlike with your traditional keyboard rig where you’re stuck where you’re placed, playing a keytar allows you to really rock out the stage and go where the music takes you.
Plus, what’s really great about the AX-Edge is that when inspiration takes you, you can really express yourself with full control using both hands.
While your right hand plays the 49 full-sized velocity sensitive keys, your left hand goes to work with the modulation bar, pressure sensitive pitch ribbon and other easy-to-reach controls such as portamento, hold, octave switch and program change.
It’s an awesome way of not only delivering your music but really putting your heart and soul into the sound.
You’re not just pushing buttons and hearing sounds – you’re letting your inspiration and expression flow through your fingers to create emotive music.
Performance Focused Features
Another great feature that makes sure you’re always completely in control of what’s going on is the inclusion of an innovative dual display.
The AX-Edge also gives you an onboard arpeggiator and song player which are ideal for providing backing music while you play lead stuff over the top.
There’s also a mic input and a built-in vocoder which you can layer with internal sounds for really unique vocal performances.
Modern Convenience and Versatility
In addition to the awesome looks and incredible sound, the AX-Edge also boasts several features that the modern keytar player needs to get the most out of their music.
For example, there’s a USB memory function which you can use to create a full backup of your settings should the worse happens.
You can even use the AX-Edge as a master controller for your ack modules and plugin synths so the possibilities are endless.
What’s more, thanks to the Bluetooth MIDI support and up to four hours of battery life, you can perform completely wireless – nothing will hold you back when you take to the stage!
The Ultimate Performance Synth
Fully-featured with awesome looks and incredible sound, Roland have designed the AX-Edge to be the ultimate performance synth and it does not disappoint.
Included with the AX-Edge is an extra “Edge Blade" so you can change your look when the mood strikes you and a strap so you’re ready to rock straight away.
