Need something small with weighted keys for the show? The new RD-64 stage piano from Roland finds that elusive balance between portability and weighted hammer action. 64 keys of prime Feel-G weight to provide that resistance that lets you play oh-so-dynamically. Finally, you can play on that weighted action with out breaking your back (or your front?) on the way to the gig! Great feel, great sounds, and simple to use. 128 note polyphony and SuperNatural sounds on board. Come down to Easy Music Center and check it out!

Moog Minitar and Slim Phatty : What do you mean they are only modules?

    Posted By on November 24, 2012

The Minitaur and Slim Phatty are designed for those musicians that use midi controllers in a live setting. The Slim Phatty is very similar to the Little Phatty when it comes to presets and sound effects. I really like that there is a tap tempo function. This helps out when you have syncopated LFO’s like the dubstep wobble for example. The Minitaur is a smaller module.  A computer is needed to tweak and save your preset.  You can get fat synth bass and crazy lead sounds with this bad boy. In this video below, I doubled these two modules under one midi controller.  Check it out!


Roland AC-90 : a soloist’s go to amp!

    Posted By on October 21, 2012

The Roland AC-90 is for all the solo musicians that need or want a small and fast set up!  This amp has 90 watts of stereo awesomeness and two channels that can fill a room with epic talent.  Some extra features that makes this amp stand out is the chorus wide band effect, anti-feedback suppression, delay and reverb effects, and the possibility of lining out to a PA system from behind the unit.  Check out this video I put together.  There are a couple examples with different instruments ,and I show  the back and top panels.  Check it out!


The Roland SP404SX : Sampling at a ease!

    Posted By on August 19, 2012

The SP404SX is for all musicians that want to sample specific sounds or audio from movies, tv, vinyl, and so forth.  If you are a DJ, you can mix your own samples and beats into your set at ease.  This product has built in effects such as delay, reverb, pitch, and overdrive that can be used during the recording process or applied after.  It is a great unit for on the fly effects too making it ideal for a DJ who wants to add extra sound to their set.  In this video, I will show you a brief over view of how to record a sample using a microphone.  Check it out!
