7 ARTIST RIGS KYLE PETERSEN (PRODUCER, MUSICAL DIRECTOR, KEYBOARDIST) ROLAND KEYBOARD RIG: RD-800 JUPITER-80 SYSTEM-8 JD-XA FA-06 AX-SYNTH International touring artist and producer Kyle has been performing with Roland keyboards for almost 20 years. His current rig consists of the RD-800, Jupiter-80, System-8, JD-XA, FA-06 and the AX-Synth. We wanted to know why he s so obsessed with our brand: I travel a lot and usually spend at least 4 months of a year touring. That means my equipment flies all over the world and needs to be built to withstand some serious punishment. I have, in the past two decades, never had a machine fail on me and that contributes tremendously to the confidence of a performance trust. Roland synths were the genesis of the synth world and continue to dominate the live scene they always sound fat and clean and are so easy to programme. As a musician who works in all sorts of genres with all sorts of artists - (Karen Zoid, Toya Delazy, BlackByrd, Kahn Morbee, Zaki Ibrahim, Danny K etc.) I need awesome sound quality, reliability, accessibility and versatility. Roland delivers all day every day. ARTIST RIGS ALIE KEYZ (CASSPER NYOVEST) ROLAND KEYBOARD RIG: JUPITER-80 & RD-800 Musical Director, Producer, Composer, Vocalist and Events music coordinator, Alie Keyz-Proclaim uses the Roland Jupiter-80 and an RD-800 in his Roland Rig. Why? In his own words, These two Roland beasts are easy to tame, set, and run efficiently and are compatible with all my external accessories. Alie has directed and co-produced two of the biggest shows in Africa, #FillUpTheDome ( in attendance) and #FUOS ( in attendance). I am a musician on the go doing gigs and studio work all over the world. Roland is the best for me, having shared the stage with musicians from America like Ricky Ross, The Game, Future and Omarion, and working on local productions with the likes of Cassper Nyovest, Ricky Rick, Nasty C and Sarafina 2, I stand to say Roland is user friendly and very universal on different genres and productions.

8 ARTIST RIGS NEVILLE D (GRAMMY NOMINATED GOSPEL ARTIST) ROLAND KEYBOARD RIG: FA-08 Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Neville Diedericks begun honing his musical talents at an early age. From the age of 11 when Neville D picked up his first guitar and begun strumming on the piano keys his family and friends noticed his incredible gift and begun encouraging his musical career. Neville D s name is now known worldwide, a Dove Award Winner, and now a Grammy Nominated songwriter for the hit song How Awesome Is Our God which he co-wrote with his friend and music icon Israel Houghton. I ve always been a Roland fan. I remember buying my first keyboard (I remember it well because I had to work my butt off making the monthly payments on it), and I totally fell in love with the brand. I currently play the FA-08, and for me as a singer/worship leader/songwriter, this keyboard caters to my two main needs: to perform and to create. ARTIST RIGS JAYDINE BARON (MUSICAL DIRECTOR: IDOLS SA AND SAMAS) ROLAND KEYBOARD RIG: JUPITER-80 & FP-80 South African Keyboard Player, Programmer and Musical Director, Jaydine Baron, has used the FP-80 and Jupiter-80 to create the sound of many Productions, such as Idols South Africa, The South African Music Awards, The South African Cricket Awards and for performing Artists Danny K, Loyiso Bala and AKA. Every time we start rehearsing a new show, we re always faced with the challenge of recreating the work done by the producers in studio who use a wide range of different instruments and sounds to create their tracks. With keyboards like the FP-80 and the Jupiter-80 available to me, I m never short of incredible sounds, effects and the ability to customize each patch until it sounds as close to the record as possible. Both keyboards have an amazing touch making it feel and sound as if I m playing an actual acoustic instrument like a piano, analog synth or an orchestral instrument.

9 FROM STUDIO TO STAGE AND EVERYWHERE IN BETWEEN: CREATE THE ROLAND KEYBOARD RIG THAT S RIGHT FOR YOU! XPS-10 + FP-30 For those keyboardists looking to stretch their creativity and their role in the band, this rig is a great icebreaker. With the FP-30 taking care of the piano sounds, the XPS-10 covers all of your basic brass, synth and general pop sounds. XPS-10 + RD-300NX + FP-30 This slightly more advanced version of the FP-30 rig offers you more sonic possibilities as the RD-300NX adds pads, synths and other sounds to increase your genre diversity.

10 KEYBOARD RIGS JUNO-DS61 + RD-300NX This semi-pro rig takes your playing to the next level by incorporating the pattern sequencer and live audio sample triggering of the Juno-DS. So while you re playing you can drop all those killer loops and samples and really give your sound a new edge. JD-Xi + JUNO-DS61 XPS-10 + FP-30 + RD-300NX The addition of the JD-Xi means your left hand can lay down some fat synth bass sounds, arppegiators, hits and risers. The gooseneck mic leads you to incorporating some crazy vocal harmonies and effects with the built-in vocoder. This rig now covers all of your bases and because all of these machines are lightweight and portable, they are great for touring. JD-Xi XPS-10 + FA-06 + FP-30 + RD-800 For keyboardists who are running the show or who don t have a second keyboard player to support them, this rig is essential. The FA brings a 16 track sequencer and 64 audio samples per project. The dedicated click out means that you can safely have your drummer in time with your live arrangements as you expand on your creative role within the project. The RD-800 brings more advanced layering, effects and expandability with it s Axial compatibility. The rig is for the professional musical chameleon.

11 KEYBOARD RIGS JD-Xi + FA-06 + RD JUNO-DS61 For keyboardists who want to perform exclusively with hardware, this rig delivers. The Juno-DS means an additional 8 samples per song. You ll have 72 audio samples in total, 4 Axial compatible machines, two vocoder mic inputs and an endless amount of layering options. All of the machines back-up onto USB so you can travel light and load your shows once you ve arrived at the venue, and your keyboard tech has set up your rig. JD-Xi + JUNO-DS88 + RD FA-06 + JUPITER-80 + SYSTEM-8 The international standard. As a musical director you need tools that sound amazing, are easy to program, versatile and reliable. This rig provides a sonic creative canvas unlike anything else you ve ever experienced. The SYSTEM-8 is the green and black monster that brings the ultimate in raunchy deep synth sounds to your live performances. It s easy to edit and with it s PLUG-OUT technology is endlessly upgradeable and expandable. The Jupiter-80 is also Axial compatible and because it is used on so many international albums, it really is the best asset a musical director can have on stage due to it s SuperNATURAL technology, touch screen and insane ipad editor.
