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.
