A controller that plays like an instrument.

More than just a MIDI controller, the Roland A-88MKII feels like a professional instrument. Giving you the sought-after feeling that’s more often found only on professional stage pianos. Featuring a robust, wood construction, the A-88MKII creates a solid playing experience that you can feel underneath your fingers. What’s more, you can easily adjust both the sensitivity and responsiveness, so you can find the perfect match for your playing style.

Deep Expression & Creative Control

Boasting three user-definable zones, the A-88MKII lets you layer and split your keyboard with different sounds and instruments. While the unique pitch and modulation levers, plus RGB-lit knobs and pads give you complete control over your sound. The A-88MKII also features a sustain pedal input and two fully assignable pedal inputs to get your feet in the action too.  When you’re producing modern music, sometimes your synth or module lacks the tools you need. With the A-88MKII you’ve got access to an advanced arpeggiator, chord memory, and multipurpose pads. Allowing you to trigger commands and events, and energize your real-time performances.

MIDI 2.0 and USB-C

Using the latest in technology, the A-88MKII ensures years of universal compatibility and convenience. Sporting class-compliant USB-C power, you’ll only need the one cable to power up your MIDI Keyboard. While the addition of MIDI 2.0 means you’re ready to take advantage of extended MIDI capabilities.
*When connecting the A-88MKII to iOS devices with Lightning, Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit and A-88MKII AC power are required.

Custom control. Instant recall.

Using the included control app for macOS and Windows, you can completely customize your A-88MKII. See all your layers and control mappings at a glance as well as assign commands to the pads with custom colours for visual feedback. You can even create custom control setups for specific synths or hardware. Then, instantly recall them when you need it using the handy Snap Shot function.
