The new State-of-the-Art Arranger
At Ketron, we have a dream. We want to craft the most innovative, inspiring and original musical keyboards that can ever be produced today with the technology of tomorrow.This time we have challenged ourselves with more in-depth studies, intense experimental research and hard-working studio sessions, by involving great international musicians. We aim to offer professionals and to the most demanding music lovers an instrument that would represent the new State-of-the-Art Arranger keyboard in the world.
We did not stop until we reached the highest quality standards, so that cutting-edge technology could also generate the most realistic sounds.
The result of our hard and passionate work is EVENT: try it out and experience what it means to play accompanied by a full band of real musicians.
Now you can play jam sessions with the original sounds of a real electric organimagining a jazz trio playing behind you. If you love dance music, you can bring EVENT with you on stage: the realism of the arrangements will ensure everyone’s attention and apacked lively dance floor.
Playing with EVENT is a special emotion. We are delighted to share it with you.
