Gone, however, are the JDstyle buttons of the A90, to be replaced with a slimmer variant, leaving more room for panel legending. Happily, all of the important buttons retain their integral LEDs, which greatly assists in programming, and there are two adjacent backlit LCDs: I found myself somewhat perturbed by the build quality of the A Roland A-70 Expandable Controller the casing has a good, solid metal base, much of the upper surface, including the end-cheeks, is made from moulded plastic.
The review model was already showing signs of a couple of knocks in transit, and I doubt that life on the road would be any more forgiving.
The highest and lowest keys also seem a little exposed above the plane of the end-cheeks. For normal studio use, Roland A-70 Expandable Controller the odd gig down the Frog and Artichoke, I doubt that these points would be of any major concern, but I would have some concerns about subjecting this machine to an extended touring schedule.
On the positive Roland A-70 Expandable Controller, I particularly liked the note keyboard, which features Roland's implementation of weighted synthesizer action. The feel of Roland keyboards often appeals to me, but this is one aspect of a master keyboard that needs to be determined by the individual, since one player's "light and responsive" is another player's "soft and spongy".
I was also taken by Roland A-70 Expandable Controller textured black keys, reminiscent of the old Ensoniq EPS. Roland have equipped the A70 with pitch and modulation wheels in addition to their traditional bender lever -- although the bender lever gets the better of the two sites, to the immediate left of the keyboard. As one who has spent many years flipping between wheels and levers, both in the studio and on stage, I'd say that each approach has its merits.
For pitch-bending, the lever is my preferred choice, whilst for modulation I would rather have Roland A-70 Expandable Controller wheel. At least here I have the choice, even if it means having to stretch my left hand over a little further than I would like. Four control pedal inputs are provided: Power arrives via a standard Euro connector with attendant chunky power switch.
Its memory structure is a little confusing at first, but quite flexible once the basics have been grasped.

Internal Memory contains 64 'Performance' memories Roland A-70 Expandable Controller explain what these are shortly and 10 'Chain' memories. Manual Memory is an area which behaves much like an extra Performance memory, to be utilised as a scratchpad -- changes made here are automatically stored between power-ons. The Manual Performance can be stored to a Performance memory when required.
A Performance consists of up to eight 'Zones', four of which are designated 'internal' and four 'external'. There's actually no reason why an 'internal' Zone should not be used Roland A-70 Expandable Controller access external sound sources, but with a Voice Expansion Board installed the designations are undoubtedly more meaningful. Fitting was simplicity itself, involving the removal of a couple of screws from the underside of the A I then just slotted the board in. Once I'd initialised the A70, I was presented with 64 factory Performances to show what the board was capable of.
The pianos, with a wide range of acoustic, electric and electronic examples, are very impressive, with none of those obvious timbral changes across the keyboard that often mar piano multisamples. I still find the velocity-switching technique used by manufacturers to emulate the hard and soft electric pianos to be frustratingly clumsy, but the results here are better than most.
The hammer 'thunk' Roland A-70 Expandable Controller certain of the piano samples is a little too pronounced for my taste, but that's not to say that it's going to cause any major problems in Roland A-70 Expandable Controller use. As well as the pianos, there's a decent 'bread and butter' selection of organ and synth sounds.
User reviews: Roland A - Audiofanzine
The organs are pretty good, the growly B3 being Roland A-70 Expandable Controller impressive. However, this is very much in keeping with the nature of the board -- it presents a solid range of sound tools that will fit into a wide range of applications. If you're after something a bit more off the wall, don't forget that the sounds are editable -- though not to the degree that you'd expect in a full-blown programmable synth -- and modifying filter settings, attack and Roland A-70 Expandable Controller times often sees a 'safe' patch well into the realms of the avant-garde.
