The EXR-7 Really Lets You Stretch

If you're looking to "stretch out" with your music, the EXR-7 is the perfect keyboard for you! The keys feature Roland's newly improved keyboard action that responds faithfully to delicate nuances and up-tempo passages. The new Piano Mode Chord Recognition feature recognizes chords in the full 76-key range, eliminating the need to adapt your playing style to a split keyboard, freeing your left and right hand to play naturally for piano type performance across the 76 keys, with accompaniment.

Featuring 20 New High Quality Tones

The EXR-7 extends the EXR Series' powerful sound engine and variety of tones to new levels of expression. Roland's acclaimed stereo sampled Piano is included, along with 20 new high-quality sounds with realistic nuances and voicing characteristics, including Attack Flute, Blow Alto Sax, Harmonica Hand, Jazz Guitar and French Musette, to name a few. Additionally, Roland's popular Music Assistant feature has been newly improved for the EXR-7.

User-Friendly Operation

The EXR-7 packs a wide variety of sounds, styles and functions into a user-friendly, easy to operate design. Dedicated Style and Tone category switches and separate Tempo control switches allow quick altering of sound characteristics. Roland's D Beam controller is included for realtime control over your performance. The EXR-7 has 100 User Programs (that's 10 times more than the EXR-3/5!) for storing favorite settings, including tones, styles and tempo. Any of the 100 User Programs can be quickly and easily accessed from the front panel.

High Quality Built-In Speaker System for Full Range Output

The EXR-7's built-in, powerful full range speaker system is designed to accurately reproduce the keyboard's high-quality sounds. The low-end output delivers maximum punch, incorporating Roland's new Digital Bass Enhancer technology and Bass Reflex system.
