Roland D50 with DODEKA Keys

Published on Jul 24, 2016 DODEKA

Note the Roland D50 is not featured in the video above. The video is just to give you an idea of what DODEKA is. In short:

"DODEKA is a revolutionary music system that simplifies playing and composing music. With this new system, you'll be able to quickly and easily learn how to compose and play great music."


"DODEKA introduces a revolutionary keyboard, the DODEKA keyboard, based on a chromatic configuration, where all keys are set at the same level.

As mentioned earlier, instruments with a keyboard such as the organ, the piano, etc., have a structure that unfortunately replicates the traditional notational method.

The DODEKA system works with every instrument. However, the design of the standard keyboard by contrast to strings and brass instruments greatly handicaps musicians, since it reproduces the “defects” of the traditional notational system as seen earlier.

Only a keyboard that replicates the real form of music allows to fully benefiting from the coherence of DODEKA and encourages musical expression. That is why DODEKA introduces a new keyboard, the DODEKA keyboard, in which all keys are set on chromatic configuration.

The Advantages of the DODEKA Keyboard

In a chromatic disposition, each note of the scale is side by side, there is no more established and penalising construction. Each interval is equivalent which allows the musician to very easily control the “musical space” because the keyboard perfectly replicates what is happening in the sound universe.

This configuration provides an incalculable benefit for those who improvise, as it enables to avoid the long-out calculations imposed by the traditional keyboard."
