Step Into the Spotlight

It is time to get away from the stationary keyboard rig and rock the stage. The beautiful AX-Synth represents Rolandís new generation of portable keyboards, and for the first time, this one has a precise sound generator built in. A modulation bar and dedicated control knobs are provided for real-time sound shaping and organizing. It is self contained and equipped with powerful, solo-oriented sounds from Rolandís latest, greatest synthesizers.

All In One
The AX-Synth packs everything you need to steal, nay earn the spotlight. Unlike many remote synthesizers that have come before it, the AX-Synth is self-contained and crammed with hundreds of Rolandís most spectacular sounds. You know what that means, right? It means that external MIDI devices aren't even necessary. Everything you need to start rocking is available right out of the box. However, while the AX-Synth is a self-contained synth, itís also fully capable of driving external instruments via MIDI. Just plug into a MIDI compatible device, and enjoy a limitless universe of rich sounds and textures, all fully controllable from the AX-Synth.

Control Freak
The AX-Synth comes with lots of sweet controllers that make for unique live performances. Simply glide your fingertips across the Ribbon Controller for pitch bends so smooth, they make silk jealous. Dedicated control knobs and a modulation bar are also included for real-time shaping of the sound. Players may also wave their hands over the invisible D Beam for jaw-dropping effects. As if all that wasn't enough, while the AX-Synth already has a vast treasure-trove of onboard solo sounds, users can also download the dedicated user-friendly PC software editor/librarian application and customize their sounds in innumerable ways. So what are you waiting for? The Ax-Synth will surely help you earn the spotlight you rightly deserve!
