Roland AX-Edge Overview

The black Roland AX-Edge is a keytar synthesizer offering customizable looks and expressive playability for keyboardists on stage and in the studio. It features 49 full-sized, velocity-sensitive keys with channel aftertouch, over 500 preset tones, split and layer modes, and versatile controls including a modulation bar, a pressure-sensitive pitch ribbon, and an assignable knob. Dedicated buttons provide immediate access to the arpeggiator, song player, and programs such as leads, bases, brass, and the vocoder, which utilizes a 1/4″ mic input with adjustable gain.

Enhance your sounds with the built-in effects, EQ, and compression, and edit parameters wirelessly via the downloadable AX-Edge Editor iOS/Android app, and hook up an expression pedal (available separately) to the 1/4″ pedal input for hands-free parameter adjustment. Connect the AX-Edge as a traditional controller or sound module using the MIDI I/O or USB Type-B computer port. Alternatively, utilize its Bluetooth MIDI capability to trigger a compatible virtual instrument. 1/4″ main and headphone outputs allow easy routing to headphones and a mixing console or wireless transmitter.

A second USB port (Type-A) accommodates a standard USB flash drive, which can be used to hold system data and playable songs. Power the AX-Edge via eight rechargeable AA NiMH batteries (available separately) for up to four hours of untethered operation, or connect the included AC adapter for extended performances. A silver Edge Blade trim piece is included for out-of-the-box visual customization.

Customizable Looks

The AX-Edge comes with an extra Edge Blade in the box (a silver Edge Blade for the black model and a gold Edge Blade for the white) and you can even create your own original designs. Create a look that complements your band’s style or swap out Edge Blades to keep things fresh.

Versatile Tones

The onboard sounds are optimized for stage performance to produce sounds that cut through, even in a loud band. Dedicated buttons for favorite sounds give you instant access to edgy leads, big fat basses, and all manner of keyboard sounds perfect for the performing keytarist, whether it’s taking a solo or sharing the limelight with your bandmates. If you like to customize your sounds, you can connect to the AX-Edge Editor app with Bluetooth MIDI and tweak your sounds wirelessly. Splits and layers let you take full advantage of the full-sized keyboard, and a slew of built-in effects, including a master compressor and EQ, give you polished tone in any venue. Thanks to the Tone Remain function, you can switch sounds seamlessly on stage without notes or effect tails being cut off prematurely.

Convenient Controls

The AX-Edge’s neck controls, refined over years of development and artist feedback, are highly intuitive and truly take your performance to another level. While your right hand will appreciate the velocity-sensitive keyboard, your left hand will benefit from the modulation bar, pressure-sensitive pitch ribbon, and easy-to-reach controls for portamento, hold, octave switch, and program change. If desired, many controls can be reassigned to functions that perfectly suit your performance style.

Informative Displays

An innovative dual-display system keeps you in command at all times, while the on-board arpeggiator and song player can handle backing duties while you concentrate on your performance. The built-in vocoder, which can be layered with internal sounds, is just the thing for unique backing vocals or funky, retro lead parts.
