- The A-01's intuitive operation makes it ideal for modern music production workflows. Assignable dials provide comprehensive control options over external gear and the internal sound generator, while a 192 x 40mm graphic LCD screen clearly displays key information including the shape of the output waveform. The versatile dual ribbon controllers are assignable to pitch bend, modulation, sound preview and more. Designed for modern musicians on the move, the A-01 places all these features into an ultra-compact metal unit measuring just 1 13/16" H x 11 13/16" W x 5 1/16" D, weighing 950 grams and powered by either rechargeable/alkaline batteries (4x AA) or USB bus power. For added flexibility, audio playback is possible either through the A-01's built-in single 0.5W mini-speaker or via headphones.
More Than a Controllerâ€”Spark Original Music with the Sound Engine and K-25m Keyboard
- You'd expect a good MIDI controller to take charge of your setup. What you might not realize is that the A-01 is also a pocket synthesizer that lets you create original music at home or away. With an 8-bit CPU sound engine developed by the engineer responsible for Roland classics including the JX-3P, this module echoes the concept of the Roland Boutique family. Docking into the optional Roland K-25m keyboard unit, you'll have 25 velocity-sensitive keys at your fingertips for creating music in real time and driving external gear. Combined with a 16-step sequencer for sparking ambitious musical ideas, the A-01 goes far beyond control and kick starts your creativity.
