Creativity Starts Here

Learning music doesn’t have to be hard. GO:KEYS 5 invites exploration at every turn, urging your inner creative voice to emerge. The friendly, interactive interface stimulates discovery and spontaneous musical moments, even if you’ve never played an instrument before.

Sound Motivation

As many top composers will tell you, playing one note with an inspiring sound is often all it takes to spark a complete idea. GO:KEYS 5 includes over 1000 sounds from Roland’s historic library, which has motivated top music artists in every genre for over 50 years. Journey through a universe of possibilities with the expressive 61-note keyboard, from acoustic pianos and orchestral instruments to modern synthesizers, guitars, drums, and beyond.

Melodic Magic

Once you find a sound that energizes you, experiment by creating melodies and arpeggios over automatic musical backing. GO:KEYS 5 is filled with ready-made chord progressions in various styles, all with the immersive sound of a finished record. It’s also possible to craft your own chord sequences, and you can easily find the progressions for your favorite songs online or with dedicated apps.

Mix and Match

As a chord progression loops, discover your own performance style by remixing sounds. Change things up with four variations. Drop parts in and out, including the drums, bass, and backing chords. Swap instruments for a different vibe. And create dynamic energy by processing the entire sound with filtering, lo-fi tones, beat slicing, and other ear-catching performance effects.

Lead the Band

After you’ve mastered chord progressions, go even further by directing a band of virtual musicians. GO:KEYS 5 offers a wide selection of dynamic accompaniments controlled by one or two left-hand fingers. Jam melodies and solos with your right hand as the band backs every move. Then weave in more sophisticated textures with full left-hand chords as your technique grows.

Get Vocal

GO:KEYS 5 also features a microphone input and a large selection of effects to enhance your voice. Sing along with your compositions, complete with studio-style reverb for a polished sound. Magically create real-time harmonies that automatically follow your chords and accompaniment. Or transform your voice with robotic tones that mimic the electronic sounds heard on current pop hits.

Record and Share

At any time, you can instantly capture what you’re doing with GO:KEYS 5 and listen back. Analyze and hone your ideas. Show off your progress with family and friends. Or share your skills with the world on social media.

Compact Music Companion

With its portable, all-in-one design, you can pick up GO:KEYS 5 and enjoy music anywhere in your living space. The built-in stereo sound system and passive radiator deliver big sound and powerful bass response, while support for AA battery power makes setup fast and easy. And when you want to play privately, plug in headphones or earbuds to enjoy GO:KEYS 5 without disturbing others.

Stream Songs and Create with Music Software

Listening to your favorite music is a great way to inspire the next creative session. Play songs from your music library via Bluetooth, USB memory, or the analog audio inputs and jam along. Then, use the center cancel function to remove the vocals and sing them yourself. GO:KEYS 5 also supports Bluetooth MIDI and audio/MIDI over USB, opening the door to further creative possibilities with music apps on a computer or mobile device.
