The Feel of a Roland-Quality Instrument
When you perform with the Cakewalk A-800PRO, you’re tapping into the benefits of over 30 years of Roland keyboard development. A superior key mechanism provides aftertouch and increased sensitivity for a wide range of expressive dynamics in your performance. Rounded key assemblies offer responsive reaction to your touch and more comfortable glissando. Plus, enhancements have been made to eliminate vertical shake and reduce the already low mechanical noise on key strokes. With the addition of selectable Velocity curves, you can fine tune the A-800PRO USB keyboard to match your playing style. No matter what your skill level, you’ll appreciate the feel of this quality instrument.

The Cakewalk A-800PRO controller has been ergonomically designed to put everything at your fingertips. All controls are easily accessible and intelligently laid out to make performing and producing music an inspiring affair. Whether you’re playing your favorite virtual instrument or working in your digital audio workstation, 9 knobs, 9 sliders, 4 buttons, and a dedicated Transport section offers fully assignable control of all the features you need. The sure-grip, rubber-coated Pitch Bend/Modulation Stick offers expressive control of both functions at the same time.
The A-800PRO Editor for Mac and PC makes it a breeze to customize the Cakewalk A-800PRO keyboard for use with your favorite synth or DAW. Just fire up the editor, adjust your Control Map, and hit transmit—it’s that easy. And when you’re working with an ACT (Active Controller Technology) enabled DAW like SONAR, parameters will remap automatically, keeping you in the flow and focused on your music.
