You'll have to check the schematics to see if there is a multi-tap
transfomer in the MKS-80 in which you could configure the input of
the transformer for 110V or 220V/240V

If it's a fixed 240V transformer, then you'll have to see if Roland
still has the 110V version in stock

You would need an external 110V to 240V ∗STEP UP∗ transformer
