"Roam if you want to..."

No need to sit planted behind your gear! Feel free to roam with the Lucina AX-09 Synthesizer. The Lucina is light and compact, so pretty much anyone can carry it. The Lucina is also packed with high-quality sounds, all of which can be easily selected through the onboard Category buttons. Go ahead and plug in a USB stick to add backing tracks to your performances with the Audio Player feature, or you could plug in an MP3/CD player and jam along to your favorite songs. This lightweight synth has been designed to accommodate all kinds of musicians — even kids. With its spectacular sounds and expressive controls, the Lucina AX-09 packs quite a punch, and best of all: it's easy to use!

Great Sounds:
The Lucina AX-09 is loaded with 150 high-quality sounds that cover a broad stylistic spectrum - from blazing synth leads to silky-smooth pads. With the Lucina AX-09, you'll be sure to find the right sound quickly with the Category buttons. Press the Preview button to hear the currently selected sound with a pre-programmed riff. You may also assign your top 12 favorite sounds to the Favorites bank for instant recall. Reverb and volume level settings can also be stored with each individual Favorite setting.

Battery Power:
The Lucina AX-09 offers two power options: an included AC adapter or 8 Ni-MH AA batteries, enabling players to roam about the stage (batteries sold separately). A battery-power indicator alerts you when battery power is getting low so you never have to worry about missing a single note onstage.

Audio Player
The built-in USB Audio Player feature brings an entire band out of a single synthesizer. Simply plug in a USB stick with your favorite songs in MP3, WAV, or AIFF format, select the song you want, press Play and get jamming!

Hands-On Control
With the expressive controllers built into the Lucina AX-09, you'll be able to put your own unique stamp on your performances. Wave your hand over the invisible D Beam for dramatic effects, and use the Modulation Bar and Touch control to sculpt, bend and twist each sound you play just the way you like it.

Lucina AX-09B: very cool! $100 rebate from Roland: not cool...

October 26, 2012

This is one of the most fun instruments I have ever played. I use it as a keytar for solos and also as a second keyboard on the stand. The sensitive bar is awesome and the sounds are great, specially the guitar section. Just keep in mind this is no workstation, you can't mix instrument sounds or split the keyboard to use more than one instrument, no sequencer, no rhythm. But I love the black finish, the keytar not only sounds good, but it looks good too. Great value for the price.

When I bought the keyboard Roland was offering a $100 rebate. I filled the form and attached all that was required and mailed on time, but it has been over 6 months and they never sent me the check...
