What we say:

At A Glance:

The BK-5 from Roland is a fantastic backing keyboard. It features many standard arrangement functions, a responsive and dynamic keyboard and a ton of great sounds. You’ll also find the interface incredibly easy to use and the accompaniment features are intuitive so you can focus on playing. With this in mind, the BK-5 is perfect for one-man bands at any level!

Features We Love:

High Quality Sounds

The BK-5 sound engine provides realistic and expressive instrument sounds. There are over 1,100 sounds on board spanning tons of different styles. You’ll find plenty of great keyboards, acoustic instruments, drums and more on the BK-5. It’s just like having a professional sounding band backing you up!

Playback Control

The BK-5 can load in external MIDI and audio files via USB memory. Just pop in a USB stick with your files and off you go! You can play the MIDI arrangements with the great in-built sounds. There is also the option of playing and editing audio files, which means you can load in your favourite songs and minimize the vocals. Viola, instant karaoke version!

Video Output

There is also the option to send a video feed from the BK-5. This can be used to display lyrics and chord symbols. This is great for Karaoke sessions, or performing with other musicians. It’s easy to keep everyone on the same page!

Roland is proud to announce the release of its very first backing keyboard, the BK-5, the latest in a series of Roland musical instruments with intelligent backing-track technology. Hundreds of great music, rhythms, and tones from around the world are available at the touch of a button. With exceptional sound quality, a comfortable user interface, and seemingly endless accompaniment possibilities, the new BK-5 is perfect for one-man bands, hobbyists, beginners, and professional entertainers.

The distinguished sound quality of the new BK-5 is derived from the BK-7m, Roland’s world-class “band in a briefcase” backing module. Song and rhythm makeup tools for standard MIDI files and rhythms are also offered along with a second drum track for rhythms and SMF.

The Music Assistants and rhythms included in the new BK-5 backing keyboard cover a variety of musical genres and are compatible with BK-7m/E-series/G-series/V-series. Other features include 128-voice polyphony, over 1,150 sounds, 60 drum kits, song playback, recorder, rhythm composer, video output and audio input.

USB memory allows for easy audio recording and hosts an embedded rhythm composer for performance and training applications. Backing music (rhythm, SMF, MP3, WAV) can be pulled directly from USB memory as well. Audio in and video out enable a wide range of performance and entertainment options. Video out also lets the performer enjoy SMF/MP3 lyrics with friends or the audience on an external screen.
