Grand Piano Onboard
The RK-300 features Roland’s finest 88-note stereo sampled grand piano sound, offering incredible realism, detail and clarity. With the Piano Designer function, you can adjust the string resonance, change the degree of the virtual piano lid, and more. The 88-note PHA II progressive hammer-action keyboard provides authentic piano touch and response.

Play Along
The RK-300 can play audio data such as MP3 files from USB Flash Memory or audio CDs. You can change key and tempo, while the Center Cancel feature lets you minimize the melody part so you can play along. As you play, VIMA can supply a variety of interactive graphics in real time, such as DigiScore scrolling sheet music and Piano Roll displays. The unique ANIME effects can enhance your performances as well. Eight ANIME types are provided, including Petal, Musical Notes, Note Names, Snow Crystals, and more. It’s an exciting performance experience, as if you are playing notes and graphics simultaneously.

Sing Along
Plug in a microphone and enjoy a fun-filled karaoke experience. The VIMA RK-300 is loaded with great sing-along songs, and you can add more from Roland’s VIMA Tunes library or Standard MIDI Files with lyrics. The RK-300 can be operated via remote control, and can automatically add harmonies onto your voice, while performing with the RK-300’s onboard songs/VIMA TUNES. In case a singer is singing along with audio data playback on RK-300, his/her voice can be harmonized as well, according to the real-time keyboard performance on RK-300.

Jam Along
The VIMA RK-300 is the perfect centerpiece for the entire band. Connections are provided for a variety of instruments and vocals, and all can be amplified through the RK-300’s built-in speakers. Plug in a guitar, for example, and use the onboard guitar effects for a rock-star sound. VIMA even lets you record your performances and burn CDs with its onboard CD Drive right on the spot!
