Roland has announced the new PK-6 Dynamic Pedalboard, which they describe as an impressive MIDI controller that puts the excitement and versatility of live bass performance with full MIDI control within reach of any musician.
The new PK-6 MIDI Pedal controller is the successor to the PK-5A, and preserves many of the same characteristics of its predecessor, but is now more comfortable and intuitive for musicians. Virtually any MIDI function can be controlled in live performance using the feet, leaving the hands free to play, and the easily readable LED display enhances the usability.
The PK-6 includes new features like MIDI merge, PK out, and an external pedal jack, along with proven PK-5A features like one-foot operation of four separate performance modes, 13 velocity-sensitive pedals, and the ability to transpose over a nine-octave tonal range.
Roland say that you can connect the PK-6 to any MIDI-compatible keyboard or sound module, and instantly add bass lines, harmonies, drum/percussion sounds, and even sound effects to your performances.
Pricing and Availability:
The PK-6 will be available in April 2012.
