Roland UK have completed two great videos with the legendary keyboard session musician Ayo Oyerinde. In them, he discusses the foundation of his keyboard rig, the Roland RD800, and also gives us a brilliant lesson in how to use the hybrid digital/analogue JD-XA in live and studio environments. He highlights the importance of the sound inspiring the vocalists that he works with – including Jessie J and Rebecca Ferguson.

“An artist like Jessie J or Rebecca, who have big voices, they really get inspired when they hear a sound like that coming out of the keyboards. It helps Jessie go to places she wouldn’t normally go…”.

Love it.
