The “Audio Key” feature lets you use the bottom 15 keys for controlling start song, song length, etc. In addition, you can connect directly to a PC via USB and tap into Cakewalk SONAR LE software, included in every RD-GX package.
For those who like to get inside an instrument and customize its sounds, the RD-GX’s Piano Designer feature is your key to unlocking and personalizing the sound-set, down to the smallest details such as Hammer Noise, Damper Resonance, Duplex Scale and more. In the RD-700GX, sounds can be further customized with the eight channels of powerful onboard multi-effects.
Sound Expansion, Master Control
Expand and personalize the internal sound-set by adding up to two optional Roland SRX expansion boards, then take your music to the stage. The RD-GX series make great master controllers, thanks to multi-zone functionality and multiple MIDI outputs (three MIDI outputs).
