GO:KEYS

Have Fun with Music—No Experience Necessary (Bluetooth® not supported)

If you’re looking for a fun and inspiring way to start playing music, Roland’s GO:KEYS is the answer! With its innovative Loop Mix function, anyone can build fully produced songs right away, even with no previous music experience. There’s also a diverse range of pro sounds to explore, plus an easy-to-use recorder to capture and share your creations. Compact and battery powered, GO:KEYS lets you enjoy the magic of musical creativity everywhere you go.

Create Music Instantly with Loop Mix

No musical experience? No problem! Anyone can start creating cool music right away with the Loop Mix function in GO:KEYS. Unlike accompaniment features in other keyboards that require knowledge of chords, Loop Mix offers a completely new approach that even beginners can enjoy. By triggering loop phrases from the keyboard, you can intuitively construct professionally produced songs in real time with drums, bass, and various instruments. And with a simple touch of the performance pads, you’re able to manipulate your songs like a DJ, adjusting pitch, filtering, and more.

Pro-Quality Sounds Make Your Music Shine

GO:KEYS also functions as a normal keyboard instrument with over 500 ready-to-play sounds derived from Roland’s acclaimed pro synthesizers. With the category buttons, it’s easy to call up pianos, synths, strings, brass, and many other sound types. You can play the sounds over your Loop Mix jams, and use GO:KEYS as a high-quality portable synth as your playing skills improve.

Make Music Anytime and Anywhere

Thanks to its compact, lightweight design and built-in speakers, you can enjoy music nearly anywhere with GO:KEYS. Play in your bedroom, around the house, or at the office with the included AC adapter, or pop in six AA batteries to use GO:KEYS during camping trips, backyard parties, and other outdoor adventures. Plugging in headphones automatically mutes the speakers, allowing you to get lost in music without disturbing others nearby.
