A wealth of "lively" sounds and effects

A premier 88-key split stereo-sampled piano is among the sounds onboard. All sounds were captured "live," including the piano and stunning sampled guitar sounds, so you can expect an incredible degree of realism. And no matter what tone you land on, you've also got plenty of room to tweak it - the Roland E-80 offers up a robust effects section, loaded with 12 reverb effects, six chorus effects, and 84 multi-effects.

More than 350 styles
When you want tremendous backing tracks, you can count on the Roland E-80. There are more than 350 styles onboard, which span genres from around the world. All created by a team of international programmers, the styles are as "live" and realistic as the tones onboard the unit and have been expertly mixed and mastered, so you're ready to start playing and get creative.

Great-sounding onboard speaker system
With the Roland E-80, you don't have to mess with plugging in external speakers or fishing around for a pair of headphones the moment creativity strikes. You can take advantage of its high-impact, bi-amped sound system that offers four speakers, a Bass Reflex System, and a Digital Bass Enhancer. The E-80 even offers speaker modeling technology, so you can change the sonic character of the speaker just by pressing a switch. And if you do want to use external speakers to take the stage or work in your studio, you can bypass the onboard speakers by just flipping a switch.

Built-in vocal harmonist
The Roland E-80 gives you an incredible amount of sounds, effects, and styles to choose from - but it doesn't stop there. Not only can you plug in a microphone and layer in a vocal track, the E-80 boasts a built-in Vocal Harmonist with over 80 settings and additional effects and features. You can apply wild vocal effects or control pitch automatically. There are also a vocoder and an ensemble feature onboard.

2 x expansion slots
If you want to customize your E-80's soundsets, you can - there are two SRX expansion slots, so you can add whatever sounds best suit your needs.

16-track sequencer and mastering tools
The onboard 16-track sequencer offers up advanced features, such as piano roll editing. There's even a digital score display and a lyrics display that can import and export text and automatically extract chords. Once you've created a great mix, there are powerful mastering tools onboard, as well, including a parametric equalizer and a multi-band compressor - the E-80 is a one-stop creative environment!

USB connection for exchanging data plus MIDI communication
The E-80 works great as a standalone workstation, but it also integrates into a computer-based setup. Via USB, you can exchange styles, songs, user programs, images, and file text. You can also connect the E-80 to your computer and use it as a MIDI controller to take charge of your software instruments. The E-80 includes Roland's G-70 Database Manager software, which helps you to manage songs, styles, and user programs directly from your computer.
