Gorgeous Grand Piano
The RP-201 is based on Roland’s acclaimed 88-key stereo multi-sampling, in which the distinctive acoustic properties of each grand-piano key have been faithfully captured. Together with its 128 polyphonic voices, the RP-201’s piano engine performs like a true grand. No matter how fast you play or how much sustain pedal you apply, you needn’t worry about note drop-outs.
Resonance-behavior modeling for string, damper, and key-off makes the RP-201 all the more natural and realistic. Your pedal positions are detected smoothly, letting you constantly vary the tone by changing pedal depth just like an acoustic grand piano.
Progressive Hammer Action
With its Progressive Hammer-Action keyboard (PHA alpha II), the RP-201 has a natural key touch that reproduces the feel and response of an acoustic grand piano. Lower keys are more heavily weighted; as you move up the keyboard, the key weight becomes progressively lighter.
Onboard the RP-201 are useful features for improving your piano skills. The Twin Piano mode splits the keyboard into two identical zones, letting two people sit side by side and play in the same range — great for student/teacher sessions. The onboard metronome and recorder are also great tools for practice.
Friendly to Use, Friendly for the Environment
With the RP-201, nothing gets in the way of creativity. The dedicated, easy-to-access front-panel buttons and music holder enhance ease of use. The low power consumption of the instrument is environmentally friendly without sacrificing output level.
