Its price might say 'low end' but the E-09's sounds and styles are nothing but first class. Building on the success of Roland's popular E-series arranger keyboards, the E-09 ushers in a brand-new look, feel, and sound for the family. With its new high-quality sound engine, pro-style appearance, and powerful specifications including a newly designed library of sounds and interactive styles, the E-09 raises the quality standard for entry-level arrangers.

International Appeal
With a global array of interactive musical accompaniments onboard, the E-09 puts a world of colorful and authentic music under the player's fingertips. Master programmers from around the world have created special Styles for the E-09, spotlighting the Western, Middle Eastern, and Asian cultures.

EZ Operation
As Roland's technology continues to expand and improve, so too does the user-friendliness of its instruments. The E-09 is no exception, as it provides a clearly labeled lineup of large, friendly buttons across its front panel, logically organized into task types. There are one-touch Tone and Style locator buttons to help find the sound and style quickly, plus an array of helpful, dedicated controls to make navigating and playing the instrument a breeze.

Low Profile, Big Sound
The E-09 introduces a new professional-grade industrial design to the E family. Its black metallic finish, coupled with a slim, streamlined chassis design, makes the E-09 eye catching and easy to transport. Despite its slim physique, the E-09 outputs an impressively big sound from its built-in stereo speaker system. To further enhance the sound, the built-in effects processor can add space, depth, and other special effects. There are 47 types of multi-effects to choose from, plus eight varieties of reverbs and choruses.

Effects
A great sound engine is only the beginning. The E-09 allows you to add space, depth, and other special effects to your sounds with its onboard multi-effects processor. There are 47 types of multi-effects to choose from, plus eight varieties of reverbs and choruses. A powerful bonus: Each sound within a simultaneous-patch group can have its own effects assignment.

    Comments about Roland E09 Interactive Arranger 61 Key Portable Keyboard:

    I actually use my E-09 on stage rather than a studio arranger and it suits me just fine for piano sounds. In addition to piano, I also require synth and organ sounds which the E-09 is just OK for. I do wish there were more built in sounds for synth and organ but I use a second keyboard on stage to fill this gap.

    What I do LOVE about the E-09 is that it is fairly simple to customize your split points, octaves, reverbs, effects, etc. in between songs on stage so that I often only need the one single keyboard if I'm playing a song on piano with a synth line over it.

    It's also light weight and easy to transport, I can take it on the train or in the car to the gig just fine.

    Overall, it's an affordable keyboard with great piano sounds, you get what you pay for.

          Comments about Roland E09 Interactive Arranger 61 Key Portable Keyboard:

          The most important thing to understand about the Roland EO9 is the keybed structure: The keys are shorter then standard from front to back, the accidentals are too narrow on top, and the keybed is tightly sprung, meaning that it requires pressure to play. Even if you're used to real piano action, the size of these keys will affect your playing technique. The piano voices are not so good either, they just don't have enough sustain, and don't sound realistic. It seemed to be difficult to play with velocity, just not enough volume, so I would always play without velocity to get a decent home volume level. My experience with this keyboard is hands-on at home, more than a year, while I looked around for something better. The Roland E09 shares a common keybed with a couple of the Juno models, so whereas you may not see the EO9 in stores, you can and should still try the Junos to see what I mean about the keybed. Otherwise, this keyboard is very well made, solid, lightweight, and also available in white. But it's shortcomings are just not good.

            I thought this would be a move up. The less than 200 dollar Yamaha has better styles and features than this piece of garbage. NO user styles or any ability to do anything but tweak theirs a little. Why they don't ever consult with real users like me is a mystery. There are a hundred styles to pander [...] and ONE horrible, poorly conceived foxtrot. [...] a terrible waste of money.
