AX-1 is a Roland’s velocity sensitive 45-note keytar produced from 1992 to 1994. The keytar is not a standalone instrument is a MIDI controller devised to manage sounds of external devices. David Sherriff and Andrew Leggo were responsible for the design while the Italian branch of Roland (Roland Europe) developed the electronics.

Sound modules, synthesizers or samplers receive MIDI messages sent by AX-1. The device storage allows for up to 32 patches.

There’s a ribbon for pitch bend, a sustain switch and an expression bar installed on the keytar’s neck. The only way to use it is to connect it to a MIDI compatible instrument.

The keytar was used by Jean Michel Jarre, Peter Gabriel and many others.
