For over three decades, RD pianos have been trusted by professionals, night after night, on stages the world over. One key reason is how playable they are, and how connected you feel when you play one. You get sturdy controls and smooth, reliable keyboard action that feels natural, never stiff, never spongy.
Lightweight and compact design for easy transport and setup
Ivory feel piano-touch keyboard (PHA-4) for world-class playability
New SuperNATURAL pianos and electric pianos based on acclaimed RD series
Easy to use interface optimized for performance
Three zones with external control and Apple MainStage integration
Room-filling, onboard speaker system
A great stage piano needs sounds that are authentic and have character. The RD-88 draws upon its rich heritage and features newly developed SuperNATURAL pianos and electric pianos that can go from sparkle to grit with a few knob twists. And for extra versatility, there`s a curated selection of acoustic and electronic sounds from Roland`s historic legacy using the same sound engine found in our flagship synthesizers.
RD pianos are easy to connect with, thanks to their intuitive controls and friendly layout. The RD-88 is no different, giving you just what you need for confident and expressive performances. Vital controls are clearly marked and always in reach, so you can quickly find your favourite sounds, add effects, or shape the tonal balance to suit the venue.
Integrate soft synths
Sometimes you need a very specific sound or the unique capabilities of a particular soft synth or sample library.
The RD-88 has three zones that can be configured with internal sounds, or can integrate and control soft synths from Apple MainStage. This makes it simple to duplicate the sound of a track live or mix favourite soft synths with the RD-88`s own palette of sounds.
Fits your life
The RD-88`s clean and compact design fits neatly into your lifestyle. Its lightweight and sturdy build makes it easy to take with you and quick to set up, even on small stages or in cramped rehearsal spaces. And the room-filling integrated speaker system is ultra-convenient and lets you play with less clutter and less fuss.
