ROLAND RELEASES RP102 DIGITAL PIANO

ROLAND RELEASES RP102 DIGITAL PIANO

Available November!

Authentic Piano Performance and Bluetooth Connectivity for Playing and Practicing with Mobile Apps

RP-102_iPad

Hamamatsu, Japan, September 14, 2017 — Roland releases the RP102, the latest addition to the award-winning RP series of affordable digital pianos. Featuring advanced technologies derived from Roland’s premium pianos, the RP102 offers best-in-class sound and touch in a compact, space-saving design. And with modern Bluetooth® connectivity built in, users can wirelessly connect with a smartphone or tablet to enhance learning and enjoyment with Roland’s Piano Partner 2 and other useful music apps. The RP102 is ideal as a first piano for the home, and also a great fit for lesson studios, practice rooms, and other music education settings.

 

Roland’s free Piano Partner 2 app for iOS and Android mobile devices is a perfect companion for the RP102. Via a wireless Bluetooth connection, the app shows digital notation for the piano’s internal songs, and pages even turn automatically as a song plays. Users can practice each hand individually by muting the left- or right-hand part, and freely adjust the tempo as needed. The app also provides access to backing rhythms and flash card games that help build skills with intelligent accompaniment and engaging music exercises.

 

With its simple, direct interface, the RP102 allows users to enjoy great piano sound with zero hassle. And when using Piano Partner 2, they can access the piano’s deeper features from their mobile device. A variety of piano and non-piano sounds are available to play, and it’s possible to layer any two sounds together. The app also lets users browse the piano’s onboard song library, select songs, and more.

 

The RP102 is equipped to inspire music making with over 200 ready-to-play songs, including traditional music, classical masterpieces by Mozart and Beethoven, and famous piano etudes from Hanon and Czerny. There’s also an onboard metronome with variable time signatures, an essential practice tool for players of all levels. Twin Piano mode splits the keyboard into two 44-note pianos, allowing two people to play together side by side.

 

Offering piano sound and touch inherited from Roland’s premium home instruments, the RP102 will continue to inspire as the user’s playing grows and evolves. SuperNATURAL Piano technology delivers the rich, expressive tone of an acoustic grand piano, while the responsive PHA-4 Standard keyboard accurately translates every playing nuance. A dynamic onboard speaker system provides rich, satisfying sound that fills the room. It’s also possible to plug in headphones and mute the speakers, allowing for late night practice without disturbing others.

 

The RP102 features three integrated pedals made of metal for an authentic feel. They also support half-pedal control for playing more advanced piano pieces, a feature not found on typical entry-level instruments.

ROLAND ANNOUNCES FP-60 DIGITAL PIANO

Available mid  December from Mark Ireland Pianos –

Streamlined Piano with Premium Sound and Built-In Speakers for Home and Stage

 

Hamamatsu, Japan, September 14, 2017 — Roland announces the FP-60 Digital Piano, the latest addition to the award-winning FP series of compact digital pianos. The FP-60 features Roland’s advanced piano technologies for premium tone and feel, plus an onboard audio system with ample projection for performing in small venues. Many non-piano sounds are included as well, plus Bluetooth® audio/MIDI support for working with Roland’s Piano Partner 2 and other music apps on a smartphone or tablet. Offering top-level piano performance and easy portability in an attractive, streamlined design, the affordable FP-60 is an ideal choice for home playing, stage performing, and music education settings.

 

While sound quality and keyboard feel are often sacrificed in portable piano designs, that’s not the case with the FP-60. Roland’s respected SuperNATURAL Piano engine delivers the dynamic, expressive sound of an acoustic grand, with touch-sensitive overtone changes and 288 notes of polyphony for realizing authentic acoustic performances. The PHA-4 keyboard with escapement and Ivory Feel keys offers true grand piano touch, and features the latest sensing technology for unrestricted musical expression.

 

Via built-in Bluetooth, FP-60 users can enhance performances and practice sessions with their favorite mobile devices. Audio from a smartphone or tablet can be streamed wirelessly through the piano’s onboard speakers for playing along with favorite songs or music lessons from the web. Roland’s free Piano Partner 2 app extends the piano’s functionality even further with intelligent rhythm accompaniments, recording functions, and more.

 

The FP-60’s integrated audio system is specially designed to produce rich, room-filling sound, eliminating the need to carry an external sound system when playing in small venues. The speakers and integrated amplifiers have been carefully tuned for precise tonal reproduction, and dedicated speaker boxes engineered into the keyboard cabinet support full-range projection with impressive dynamic range. A convenient three-band equalizer is provided on the front panel, allowing players to quickly adjust the tone as needed to fit the room.

 

In addition to its core acoustic piano sounds, the FP-60 includes pro-quality electric pianos, strings, organs, and synths, giving performing players lots of versatility. Users can create layers and splits, and store favorite sounds and settings in 30 user registrations for quick recall.

 

The FP-60 looks great in any setting, offering a stylish, understated appearance based on the award-winning design of the flagship FP-90. When paired with the optional KSC-72 stand and KPD-90 pedal, the instrument has a clean, contemporary upright look that’s ideal for home use, concert stages, and education environments. The KPD-90’s three-pedal configuration supports Progressive Damper Action, providing continuous response for traditional playing techniques.

New digital piano- full of inovations- bursting with music!

There are many good reasons to add a digital piano to your equipment. You may be looking for a practice instrument, a portable accompanying piano for a band or choir, a space saving rehearsal instrument, or perhaps you may not yet have imagined that there are many other elements and options available.

Among the facilities now on modern digital instruments there are many tones , or voices , but now also complex rhythms with accompaniments are often part of the specification.

Recording, or using an ipad with various apps for learning and playing along to are also great for beginners and accomplished players alike.

Investing in a modern piano would open possibilities of realism of tone and feel to start with, but beyond that- there is real value in the learning aids and the chance to learn the skills needed to play with a band, in time!

There are pianos to suit all budgets and age ranges! It may be time to revive a skill you have not used for a while!  Pay the shop a visit and see the options.
