Call up favorite songs from your music library, and access unlimited free online music content from piano lessons to karaoke. Whatever you choose, you can play along as the audio streams wirelessly through the high-quality onboard speakers, or simply sit back and enjoy the music.

And when you’re ready to step up to more advanced music production, GO:KEYS is a perfect partner for MIDI recording in popular apps like GarageBand and many others.
Set Up Fast and Save Space in Your Home
A full-sized acoustic piano just isn’t feasible for many homes. But thanks to GO:KEYS’s compact and lightweight design, there’s nothing to stop you from creating music, even when space is at a premium. Switch on your keyboard, connect to your smartphone, and you’re ready to start playing, with no lengthy setup or untidy wiring. The onboard Bluetooth speakers are ideal for performance, but when you need to dial down the decibels for quieter play, GO:KEYS lets you plug in headphones and keep the fun rolling.
Play Music Anywhere with Battery Power and a Wireless Smartphone Connection
When inspiration strikes, you’ll always be ready to react with GO:KEYS. It’s compact enough to throw in a carry bag, while six AA batteries supply all the power you need to play music anywhere, from camping trips to tour buses. And with no wires to slow you down, it’s fast and easy to use with content from your smartphone, so you can always work on your music, even when you’re on the move.
Even Beginners Can Create Pro Music with Loop Mix
No musical knowledge? No problem with GO:KEYS. Even if you’re playing a keyboard for the first time, the Loop Mix function lets you start creating cool music right away. Unlike other keyboards that have accompaniment features that require chord basics, Loop Mix is a fresh approach that even beginners can enjoy. By triggering loop phrases using single keys, anyone can create polished songs in real time. Drums, bass, and other instruments are easy to add to the mix, and the performance pads let you manipulate sounds like a DJ by adjusting pitch, filtering, and more. And with the onboard recorder, you can capture it all for immediate playback and sharing.
Inspire Your Songwriting with Over 500 Pro-Quality Sounds
Even without a smartphone, GO:KEYS is a versatile instrument in its own right, offering over 500 ready-to-play sounds derived from Roland’s acclaimed pro synthesizers. Use the intuitive category buttons to call up pianos, synths, strings, brass, and more, and then incorporate them into your Loop Mix jams and take your songs to the next level.
Create High-Quality Videos with Your Smartphone and GO:MIXER
Once you’ve written a great new song using Loop Mix, you’ll want to share it with the world. Recording videos with your smartphone is easy, but its built-in mic doesn’t always sound so good. By plugging your phone and GO:KEYS into Roland’s cool GO:MIXER, you can directly capture the keyboard’s great sound to your videos while you shoot. You can plug additional sources into GO:MIXER as well, such as a mic or another keyboard. With the combination of your smartphone, GO:KEYS, and GO:MIXER, there’s no simpler way to create pro-quality videos for sharing on social media.

With ScratchX and the GO:KEYS ScratchX Extension, kids can create original interactive stories, games, and animations with authentic sounds and music accompaniment from GO:KEYS.
