Roland E-500 Intelligent Keyboard

Complete with Music Stand, Power Cord & Manual


About This Keyboard

This keyboard came to us as a trade-in and I don't know a lot about it but from what I can tell, everything is working just as it should. It has a nice bright screen, and all of the buttons and knobs seem to be working well. It includes a power cord, music stand and manual on CD. Cosmetically it just shows normal wear and tear for a used keyboard with just a couple of scuffs here and there. I've included a lot of pictures and a video which should pretty much speak for themselves. These keyboards are a lot of fun with lots of rhythms and sounds built in.

The E-500 can be used as piano, organ, or "keyboard" (i.e. a synthesizer with automatic accompaniment) - all at the touch of a button

GM (General MIDI) and GS compatible
  • The General MIDI system is a set of recommendations which seeks to standardize the MIDI support features of sound generating devices
  • Roland developed the GS Format to standardize the response of sound generators when MIDI is used for the production of music.
The E-500's tone generator fully supports both the General MIDI system and the GS format - so you can use music data that is designed for either
