EUGENE MANMAN ROBERTS
MD FOR JOHN LEGEND, KANYE WEST & WIZ KHALIFA
SYSTEM-8 / JUNO 106 / JUPITER-8
“Roland has sooo many Amazing pieces of gear! If I had to choose one... I’d say the System-8. It's everything I’ve ever wanted in a keyboard. Easy programming, Juno-106 sounds, Jupiter-8 sounds! Definitely my hero!”
FA-08 / JD-Xi
“I find both my most essential needs as a performer and a songwriter being met by the amazing FA-O8. The massive sound collection really helps me to create new music and the 88 note keyboard makes it a breeze to perform live.”
MD FOR KAREN ZOID
RD-2000 / JUPITER-80 / SYSTEM-8 / FA-06
“Always been an RD fan but always found myself torn between the FP and RD series. The RD-2000 has an amazing action and its versatility is astounding - from rock, pop, and jazz, to classical - it just delivers. Layering and customizing patches on a stage piano has never been so easily executable which decreases my programming time immensely. I love all the Roland keyboards but the RD-2000 is my hero #dreammachine.”
MUSICAL DIRECTOR & SESSION MUSICIAN
FA-08 / FP-80 / JUPITER-80 / FANTOM-G7 / FANTOM-X7 / XP-50
“I’d usually require up to 3 or 4 keyboards in a rig to create the type of sounds needed for a show, but now that I’ve started using the FA Series, I have access to sounds from Roland’s many different ranges - from those currently available to those from the past - all in one keyboard! The XP-50, which I’ve used for years, has always been one of my favourite Roland releases, so having access to those vintage sounds on a modern machine makes me feel right at home.”
“Having the Roland JD-Xi is like having a combination of Kanye West and Daft Punk at your disposal. The creative possibilities are endless, and it's so fun!
My personal favourite feature is the vocoder.”
THE KIFFNESS & CARA FREW
“My Roland Hero is the Roland FA-06 Music Workstation, an incredibly light-weight yet versatile music production keyboard that I can seamlessly integrate into my workflow - whether in the studio, on the road, and definitely on stage.”
MD FOR CASSPER NYOVEST
JUPITER-50 / FA-08
“My hero is the Jupiter-50 - the keyboard is a monster that cuts like a double-egded sword. The SuperNatural sounds help you stand out and it boosts my confidence on stage. Roland has made it easy for me to perform the World Cup Song with Jason Derulo & Alie Keys. The brand will always be my number one as the phat clean sound is what keeps me going on the keys.”
Now it's time for you
to follow in their footsteps –
choose your hero!
