Enjoy Real Piano Performance with a Compact, Space-Saving Footprint
Not every home has a dedicated room for a full-size acoustic piano. But GO:PIANO’s compact and lightweight design means you can enjoy your new passion in any setting. Simply place the keyboard where it suits you and turn on your smartphone, and you’re ready to start playing without any setup hassles or tangles of wiring. Plus, to ensure you can practice when it suits you, GO:PIANO lets you plug in headphones to keep playing without disturbing others.
Make Music on the Move with Battery Power and a Wireless Smartphone Connection
A traditional acoustic piano ties you to one location. But with GO:PIANO and a smartphone, you’re always ready to make music when inspiration strikes. With its compact design and battery-powered operation, GO:PIANO goes wherever you go, and allows you to either perform through speakers or practice with headphones. And with wireless connectivity to your smartphone, you can set up a quick learning session at any time and any place.
Enjoy Traditional Piano Feel with 61 Standard-Size Keys
It’s frustrating to learn piano on a keyboard that doesn’t feel like the real thing. Unlike typical portable keyboards that have lightweight synthesizer-type keys, GO:PIANO’s 61 full-size keys provide playing feel and expressive touch inspired by the keyboards on acoustic grand pianos. This helps to support your developing technique and ensure a smooth transition if you choose to play a larger keyboard in the future. Even if you do, your GO:PIANO will continue to be a great portable piano for use around the house and while traveling.
Get Inspired with Roland’s Responsive Piano Sounds
Great tone makes you want to keep playing, and GO:PIANO inspires with a range of onboard sounds derived from Roland’s acclaimed premium pianos. Touch any key and you’ll hear a note with its own character, changing seamlessly in response to your touch—just like a fine acoustic grand piano. This feature will bring dynamics to your playing, push you to improve faster, and support your musical ambitions as your skills grow. GO:PIANO also includes electric pianos, organs, and other sounds to enjoy exploring different musical styles.
Get More from Your Practice Sessions with Onboard Learning Features
It’s easy to lose focus when you’re practicing alone, but GO:PIANO keeps you on track with instant access to many tools that support your daily regime, all accessed via the friendly front-panel controls. Try the metronome to build your timing skills, or transpose the keyboard to a different musical pitch to help your songwriting. Use the convenient onboard recorder to capture your playing and evaluate your progress.
Create High-Quality Videos with Your Smartphone and GO:MIXER
Once you’re playing starts to improve, you’ll want to share your progress with the world. Recording videos with your smartphone is easy, but its built-in mic doesn’t always sound so good. By plugging your phone and GO:PIANO into Roland’s cool GO:MIXER, you can directly capture the keyboard’s great sound to your videos while you shoot. You can plug additional sources into GO:MIXER as well, such as a mic or another keyboard. With the combination of your smartphone, GO:PIANO, and GO:MIXER, there’s no simpler way to create pro-quality videos for sharing on social media.

If you are looking for a compact keyboard the Roland Go Piano 61 Is probably the best around. The full size keys terminate at the end of the cabinet which aids its compactness. The multitude of sounds are good and the keyboard, although not weighted, needs a fair bit of pressure which avoids fluffed notes which can happen with less experienced players using light keyboards. It has Bluetooth connection but beware. If you want to connect it to an iPad it has an unplayable latency. The way round this is to not use Bluetooth but connect it via an interface. I use a Hyper Drive which cost around £60 and this allows me to use it with Garage Band. You can use the Bluetooth wireless connection to play stuff into the Roland - if you should want to do such a thing! Overall I would say that this is ideal for a player who has space restrictions. It is also light in weight for gigging and with a bit of practice the octave shift buttons can simulate a full size keyboard.
Perfect size for small space. Excellent sound. Great value for money for a beginner.
Very good keyboard
Five stars if it came with a peddle
Great keyboard... bought it to use on battery power ... great sounds
