ROLAND INTRODUCES E-600 INTELLIGENT KEYBOARDEdit
Roland Corporation is proud to introduce the innovative E-600 Intelligent Keyboard, the flagship member of its popular E-Series of home-oriented keyboards. The 61-note E-600 not only carries on the superb sound quality and expressive onboard music styles of the E-500 model, but offers some cutting-edge new features as well.
The E-600′s innovative touch panel LCD gives players easy, straightforward control of all user operations. It displays information such as tone and style names with easy-to-understand icons; users simply touch the on-screen icon and a selection has been made. Onboard help is also available, making the E-600 supremely easy to use.
By simply turning on the Harmonizer function, users can add beautiful, realistic vocal harmonies when singing into a connected microphone. There’s even a special Voice Transformer that can change a man’s voice into a woman’s, an adult’s voice into a child’s, or make anyone sound like a robot.
From its majestic bass to clear treble, the E-600 offers balanced, stereo-sampled grand piano sounds and other instrument tones. The sound collection ranges from acoustic piano to violin, guitar and saxophone, and is bolstered by incredible sound effects like applause and rainfall. The E-600 also features new velocity-sensitive vocal sounds, including stereo-sampled jazz scatting and choir. Sympathetic Resonance, chorus, reverb and rotary effects greatly expand the expressive possibilities of a player’s music.

Creating music to touch people’s hearts.Edit
A Quote: “Ever since 1972 when the company was founded, Roland’s mission has been to create sounds that people would like to hear. During those early days, we determined that the silicon chip would be the key element in developing new musical instruments producing superb sounds and conveying every nuance of the player’s musical expression. Our prominent market position today owes much to the extensive use of leading-edge technologies over the years.
Because our range of innovative products have always been quick to incorporate the most sophisticated computer and semiconductor technologies, Roland has been able to make a real difference by bringing people and music closer.
Pushing forward with our business to mark our 30th anniversary, we are now expanding our original mission by going into multimedia, adding another dimension to our founding brief of “Creating music that touches hearts.” The possibilities of electronic musical instruments are limitless as we continue to discover new technological breakthroughs and introduce exceptional products. This is how we, with the cooperation of the Roland worldwide family, can best spread the joy of musical creation in the world and achieve corporate excellence.”
