Extensive Backing Styles, Including Authentic Arrangements from All Over the World
While the E-A7 excels at Western music, it’s equally strong for music from other parts of the world, with a generous array of global backing styles crafted by skilled musicians from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and South America. It doesn’t matter where in the world you play it—the E-A7 will fit right in.
An Entire World of Sound at Your Fingertips
The E-A7 offers over 1,500 essential sounds including grand piano, electric piano, organ, strings, brass, and many more. There are instruments from all over the world too, including authentic sounds from the vibrant musical cultures of the Middle East, Indonesia, India, Vietnam, and Eastern Europe. Every sound has been developed in collaboration with accomplished musicians—each one an expert in their local music scene—for the utmost realism and quality. And since the sounds are categorized by region, you can find the perfect sound for your music quickly and easily.
Expand the Onboard Sounds with WAV Sample Import
The 1,500 built-in tones of the E-A7 are just the beginning. Most gigging musicians have collected a library of tried-and-tested samples over the years, and you can use them in the E-A7 thanks to the WAV import option. In addition, the E-A7 is equipped with an onboard sampling function for creating your own custom sounds, such as drum beats or even backing vocals. Everything you need to polish the sound, including applying effects, is already on board. You can arrive at the gig, try out ideas at the sound check, and quickly perfect your sound before the show starts.
Fast, Logical Layout with Backing Styles on the Left, Tones on the Right
Some arranger keyboards include a lot of functions, but this can make them complicated and difficult to use—not ideal when you’re in front of a crowd of people expecting a great night out. The E-A7 is logically laid out, showing backing styles on the left and sounds on the right, and each side has its own LCD screen showing the essential information. And with 156 buttons for fast access to the functions you use most, you’ll spend more time playing and less time panicking about finding the right button.
All the Essentials for a Smooth Gig at Your Command
When you’re at a gig, you just need things to work, so the E-A7 gives direct access to the most common functions needed when you play. Six phrase pads trigger one-shot audio samples or MIDI phrases just where you need them. You can define and switch to alternate musical scales at the touch of a button. There are also six sliders that can adjust the volume of the various parts, such as drums, bass, and accompaniment. Finally, there are seven user-assignable buttons above the pitch-bend lever for your own custom requirements; whatever you need to do, you can do it right away without lifting your hand off the lever.
