Connect Wirelessly to Your Smartphone and Jam with Your Favorite Music

The Bluetooth functionality in GO:KEYS makes it simple to connect wirelessly with your smartphone or tablet and get more from your new keyboard. Call up favorite songs from your music library, and access unlimited free online music content from piano lessons to karaoke. Whatever you choose, you can play along as the audio streams wirelessly through the high-quality onboard speakers, or simply sit back and enjoy the music. With GO:KEYS and a smartphone, you’ve got everything you need to practice or perform. And when you’re ready to step up to more advanced music production, GO:KEYS is a perfect partner for MIDI recording in popular apps like GarageBand and many others.

Even Beginners Can Create Pro Music with Loop Mix

No musical knowledge? No problem with GO:KEYS. Even if you’re playing a keyboard for the first time, the Loop Mix function lets you start creating cool music right away. Unlike other keyboards that have accompaniment features that require chord basics, Loop Mix is a fresh approach that even beginners can enjoy. By triggering loop phrases using single keys, anyone can create polished songs in real time. Drums, bass, and other instruments are easy to add to the mix, and the performance pads let you manipulate sounds like a DJ by adjusting pitch, filtering, and more. And with the onboard recorder, you can capture it all for immediate playback and sharing.

Inspire Your Songwriting with Over 500 Pro-Quality Sounds

Even without a smartphone, GO:KEYS is a versatile instrument in its own right, offering over 500 ready-to-play sounds derived from Roland’s acclaimed pro synthesizers. Use the intuitive category buttons to call up pianos, synths, strings, brass, and more, and then incorporate them into your Loop Mix jams and take your songs to the next level.
