ROLAND SHIPS RP301R DIGITAL PIANO
Fun and Affordable SuperNATURAL Piano with Onboard Rhythm Accompaniments
Los Angeles, CA, April 30, 2012 — Roland is pleased to announce that the RP301R Digital Piano is now shipping. This attractive, fun, and affordable instrument pleases players of all levels and features the SuperNATURAL® Piano sound engine. With the Ivory Feel-G keyboard and built-in rhythm accompaniments, the RP301R is perfect for beginning piano students, families, and anyone that wants to have fun playing the piano.
Onboard are 60 fun, rhythm accompaniments designed for pianists to enrich their musical repertoire and enjoyment. Make incredible music with the newly developed full-keyboard chord recognition engine, which reacts to the pressing level of the damper pedal. You can play along with sophisticated rhythm accompaniments without changing your piano playing style. Rhythm accompaniment can be expanded through USB memory.
At the heart of the RP301R is Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, which delivers an authentic grand piano playing experience with seamless variations in tone from pianissimo to fortissimo, notes that fade naturally without looping, and three-dimensional sound and response.
The 88-note Ivory Feel-G keyboard provides world-class touch to match the RP301R’s SuperNATURAL Piano tone. Featuring a progressive hammer action design with escapement, it inherits the functions, appearance, and texture of keyboards found on Roland’s flagship pianos. Thanks to the combination of top-level sound and playing feel, the RP301R offers expressivity and performance that rivals that of high-end instruments.
The RP301R supports USB MIDI, so users can connect to computers and use the instrument with music recording software. With the USB Memory function, users can stream music directly from a convenient USB memory, allowing them to play along with their favorite WAV audio and SMF (Standard MIDI File) songs.
Equipped with a built-in stereo speaker system, the RP301R delivers rich and full sound with an easy-to-adjust volume control. The RP301R is provided with environment-conscious design with Auto Off function and low power consumption. Available in two different finishes (Satin Black or Simulated Rosewood), the compact and beautiful upright cabinet fits in nearly any space and decor. The RP301R is also outfitted with a smooth-sliding keyboard cover, three integrated pedals, and headphone jacks for silent practice.
