"The shipping was excellent, driver was very courteous, and there was no damage to the packages. The keyboard was received in time for us to use in a wedding and 20 shows in the next few weeks. If we need any other equipment, the purchase will be made from you. Thanks for all your help." - Genny, GA

Wide Range of Sounds and Rhythms Onboard
The BK-3 is filled with sounds and rhythms covering an extensive range of music genres from around the world, including Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia. There are over 850 tones and 50 drum kits built in, providing a universe of voices for melody playing and accompaniment. Compatibility with GM2, GS, and XG Lite formats ensures high-quality playback with Standard MIDI Files.

Play Backing Tracks and Rhythms via USB Memory
The BK-3 can play a variety of external backing formats from optional USB memory, including WAV and MP3 audio, SMF, and Roland rhythms (BK, E, G, and VA series). Playback tempo and song key can easily be adjusted to suit your vocal range or performing needs, even with audio files.

Your recordings are saved as CD-quality WAV data, making it easy to transfer them to your computer for burning audio CDs.

Roland Wireless Connect for iPhone and iPad
Compatibility with Roland Wireless Connect allows BK-3 players to communicate with an Apple iPhone or iPad over a wireless network via the optional WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter. There are a number of fun, free iOS apps available, including Air Recorder for capturing BK-3 audio to your iPhone, and Lyrics Viewer for displaying SMF song lyrics on your iPad. And with Show Your Music, you can create video clips of your music performances and share them on your favorite social networks!
