Product Description

The Roland EXR-5 and EXR-3 Interactive Arrangers are designed for those users attracted to the low price appliance type keyboards but looking for more professional sound quality, construction and features. In other words, they are for people with ears AND a budget. Both models contain the latest Roland high-quality sounds (510 Tones and 20 drum kits including RD-quality stereo-sampled pianos), made possible by the large amount of ROM. Truly an amazing piano for an inexpensive auto-arranger.

Features

61-note interactive arrangers with unprecedented sounds, styles and features

510 Tones and 20 drum kits including stereo-sampled pianos from the RD-Series

Over 100 music styles with new Cover function for interactive arranging

Superior speaker system with Digital Bass Enhancer

16-track sequencer for playing back Standard MIDI Files or composing new songs

USB port for loading new songs and styles, plus floppy drive on EXR-5

Flash memory supports updating styles and songs (up to 1.5MB of data)

V-LINK* vdeeo control for integrating video and music

*V-LINK requires Edirol DV-7PR with software version 1.50 or higher.

The EXR's offer 64-voice polyphony, a 16-track sequencer for playing back SMFs or composing songs and over 100 music styles with Roland's unique 'Cover' function for realtime orchestration. This function lets you instantly change the style of a Standard MIDI file (make that country hit a techno song!). The powerful onboard speaker systems feature built-in cabinets to help deliver rich, flat sound. The EXR-5 has a Bass Reflex while both EXR's feature Digital Bass Enhancer. A USB connection allows you to load new songs and styles (the EXR-5 offers a floppy drive as well). Flash memory supports song/style updates (load it via USB) to keep this auto-arranger current-- up to 99 new styles and up to 99 songs (1.5MB total. V-LINK capabilities extend the creative possibilities for beginners and pros alike. Compatible with GM2/GS/XG-format songs.

Flagship Sounds for Less
The EXR-Series boasts a range of high-quality tones taken from Roland's legendary sound library. Of particular note are the piano sounds. These stereo-sampled pianos capture all the nuances of an acoustic grand - you won't believe how real they sound! Of course, there are also brass sounds, strings, organ, bass and more, playable with 64-voice polyphony. The sound engine also includes tone maps compatible with GM2/GS/XG format songs.

Extensive Arranging Capabilities
With over 100 styles onboard, it's easy to create arrangements for the type of music you play. Each style was recorded by professional musicians, resulting in a realism not usually found in keyboards at this price. Variations can be created with the Style Orchestrator, while a unique Cover function lets you re-arrange styles and Standard MIDI Files on the fly.

Powerful Onboard Speakers
Both the EXR-5 and -3 come with powerful speaker systems designed to accurately reproduce the arranger's high-quality sounds. The low end is particularly powerful, thanks to new Digital Bass Enhancer technology, while the EXR-5's special Bass Reflex system delivers maximum punch.

Room to Grow
Because musical styles and tastes can change, the EXR-Series comes with Flash memory for updating the internal songs and styles. The User memory has room for up to 99 new styles and up to 99 songs (1.5MB total), which can be loaded in via USB. And with Roland's V-LINK technology, it's easy to integrate exciting visuals with your music.

A Snap to Use
Whether you're new to keyboards or a seasoned pro, you'll find the EXR-Series very straightforward. The large LCD display keeps the most important information at a glance, while dedicated buttons and a numeric keypad make selecting sounds and styles easy. And it doesn't hurt that the EXR-5 and -3 look cool, too!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
