About RMS Keyboards®

Finally, an easy way to get the unique, hard-to-find keyboard sounds required by many musicals.

Many musicals from the last 20 years or so have unique, signature sounds that are integral to the performance. The synthesizer sounds at the start of Les Misérables and Cats are a few examples. The problem is that these sounds are often very difficult to find. And even if there are ample resources to purchase or rent the correct equipment, that equipment may no longer be manufactured.

RMS Keyboards solves this problem! This unique resource is designed specifically to meet the needs of productions that want convenient, cost-effective access to these hard to find sounds. We have carefully assembled all sounds required for a given show. Everything is laid out in correct sequential order, so you can easily progress through each song in each keyboard book with professional, authentic, show-specific sounds. All you have to do is connect any standard keyboard (or multiple keyboards) to your laptop and you’ll be ready to perform. And we’ll help you every step of the way.
