Huge Sound and Backing Track Library

The Roland E-A7 incorporates a massive 1,500 sounds ranging from piano to organ, from strings to brass and many more. Perfect for every genre, playing style and performance environment the E-A7 includes authentic sounds from across the world allowing you even create realistic tracks from across the globe and particularly useful for movie scoring. Additionally the E-A7 is loaded with a huge library of backing tracks from a range of different styles and cultures allowing you to start jamming straight out the box.

Sample Importing

Not only does the E-A7 feature a huge library of 1,500 sounds but it also has the ability to import all your favourite sounds and samples via the WAV import option. Simply connect the E-A7 to your computer and transfer across your favourite sounds or use the onboard sampling function to create custom sounds, drum bears and even backing vocals. Everything you need to polish the sound, including applying effects, is already on board so you can arrive at the gig, try out ideas at the sound check, and perfect your sound before the show starts.

Logical and Ergonomic Layout

Designed to optimize your performance the E-A7 features a logical layout and design with two LCD screens providing real time feedback. The screen located to the left shows backing styles whilst the right screen shows which sound is currently selected. By separating this information and providing 125 fast access buttons it is simpler to select and switch sounds and allows you to focus on your life performance instead of tweaking overly complicated controls.

Advanced Control at your Fingertips

When you're at a gig, you just need things to work, so the E-A7 gives direct access to the most common functions needed when you play. Six phrase pads trigger one-shot audio samples or MIDI phrases just where you need them. You can define and switch to alternate musical scales at the touch of a button. There are also six sliders that can adjust the volume of the various parts, such as drums, bass and the accompaniment. Finally, there are seven user-assignable buttons above the pitch bend lever for your own custom requirements, so whatever you need to do, you can do it right away without lifting your hands off the lever.

Microphone Connectivity

If vocals are an important part of your repertoire, the E-A7 has a microphone input along with dedicated volume controls on the front panel; just turn the knob to instantly adjust the vocal level, with no menus in sight. You also get an array of pro-grade vocal effects to add polish to your performance, with a versatile selection of editable reverbs and delays on board.
