The MK80 was designed to succeed the electromechanical Rhodes pianos. It also has some acoustic pianos, Clavs, and xylophones. All these emulations are usable, with the Rhodes being good. Considering that it was manufactured in 1989, it's not bad at all! I wish it had more polyphony because its pianos are more natural to my ears than some of the sampled pianos available today. The Rhodes sounds are also good, and the lack of velocity-switching keeps things natural. The Clav sound is decent, but located an octave too far to the left on the keyboard.

The action and feel are right-on though, and the weight of the MK80 (76lbs) means it feels VERY solid when you play it.

Roland "Rhodes" Models

Roland

Not long after the product line came to an end, the Rhodes brand name was sold to Roland by Fender in 1987 for $20,000. By 1989 new "Rhodes" keyboards began to appear, the most notable being the MK-80, a weighted-action 88-key digital piano. This synth featured several Rhodes patches, along with acoustic piano, vibraphone & clavichord simulations, and effects including chorus and phase shifting. The concept was a great one, but the sound was not: Harold commented in an interview with Keyboard Magazine that it made him "sick". The engine behind the MK-80 was Roland's S/A synthesis model, used in the RD-series pianos at the time. At Roland's request, Harold and Major Key's John R. McLaren had constructed a single-key model of the Rhodes, an adjustable-pitch mechanism that could reproduce any note across the entire range of the piano. This strange contraption was what Roland sampled and analyzed in developing the S/A patches. Again, this seemed like a great idea at the time, but these early attempts at physical modeling were far from accurate.

Also offered was the MK-80's little brother, the MK-60. This was a stripped-down version of the synth with only 64 keys and 8 patches, none of which could be edited. As a result it was cheaper and more portable, but the sound was just as inferior. And then there was the VK-1000, a tonewheel organ emulator. Features included 76 weighted keys, drawbars for realtime control of the organ tones, and additional patches that included other piano/synth tones and Rhodes sounds from the MK-80. This keyboard would be reborn years later as the Roland VR-760, after a huge leap in technology and sound quality.

Finally, there were the Rhodes 660 & 760 models, 61- and 76-key versions of Roland's U-20 RS-PCM "ROMpler" branded with the Rhodes name. The concept here was to offer a synth that stacked nicely on top of the digital pianos: the 760 fit the MK-80 or the VK-1000, and the 660 fit the MK-60. Rhodes-brand expansion ROM cards were also available, which to our knowledge were identical to ROM cards for the U-110. A matrix of the cards by part number and name is shown below.
