Roland unveils new E-X50 Arranger Keyboard, features “Premium” acoustic pianos, auto-accompaniment and more

Roland’s new E-X50 arranger keyboard is built for entertaining, whether you are at home or on stage.


Roland today introduced their new E-X50. Described by Roland as both an arranger and entertainment keyboard, the new E-X50 could be just the thing to put the fun back into your playing and performing. It is designed to be used both in the home and on stage and, as well as a range of “high-quality sounds,” also includes accompaniment features, a mic input and Bluetooth audio.

The E-X50 has a built-in stereo speaker system, so you’re good to start beguiling your audience without any other gear. Roland says that it’s includes its premium acoustic pianos into the instrument, and electric pianos, organs, guitars, orchestral instruments, synths and more.

The auto-accompaniment features enable you to control them with your left hand while playing melodies with your right, in the traditional way. There are 300 preset styles that cover rock, pop, jazz, ballads, dance music and other genres.

In addition, you have some flexibility with these accompaniments, as well. For beginners, Auto Bass Chord mode enables you to control your arrangements with one or two fingers. Whole mode is designed for more advanced players, and lets you play full left-hand chords.

If you want to sing along, you can apply effects to the mic input, while stereo outputs enable you to connect the E-X50 to an external audio system if you need more power. USB ports enable computer connectivity and flash drive support so that you back up sound setups and recordings.

If the pre-loaded styles are not what you want, you can add and upload your own to the E-X50 via the Style Converter software or download new ones from Roland Cloud. Additionally, Scales, tuning and other parameters can be adjusted.

The E-X50 Arranger keyboard available priced at $499.99. Find out more on the Roland website.
