60 Built-In Rhythm Accompaniments for Piano Performance
The RP-301R incorporates 60 built-in rhythm accompaniments spanning 11 music genres, which are designed to enrich your musical repertoire and enjoyment. Each rhythm accompaniment contains an Intro, Ending, Variation, and Fill patterns that includes a basic rhythm part (drums/percussion) and melodic accompaniments, such as bass, guitar, and strings. Rhythm accompaniment can be expanded through USB memory.
Intelligent Full-Keyboard Chord Recognition (Pianist Mode)
Make incredible music with the RP-301R’s newly developed full-keyboard chord-recognition engine, which reacts to the pressing level of the damper pedal. Any chord you play can be recognized in real time, allowing the auto-accompaniment to follow what you play. You can play along with sophisticated rhythm accompaniments without changing your piano playing style.
The RP-301R incorporates Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano engine, a cutting-edge technology derived from the flagship V-Piano, as well as 88-key stereo multisampling. SuperNATURAL Piano brings a new level of authentic sound and natural performance to the digital domain. Roland relentlessly analyzed the complex, ever-changing characteristics of concert grand pianos, faithfully capturing and reproducing the tonal variations based on the velocity of each keystroke. The result is an incredibly expressive and authentic sound that blurs the line between digital and acoustic.
Ivory Feel-G Keyboard
Featuring Roland’s acclaimed Progressive Hammer Action design with Escapement, the RP-301R’s Ivory Feel-G keyboard inherits the functions, appearance, and texture of keyboards found on our flagship pianos. Thanks to a combination of advanced sensor technologies and our SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, the RP-301R offers expression and performance that rivals high-end pianos.
Practice and Performance
The RP-301R is equipped with friendly features to enhance your skills. The “Twin Piano” feature, for example, is designed for side-by-side lessons or performances with a teacher or duet partner. It enables the keyboard to be split into two parts, each of which covers the same octaves. This makes it easy to see and hear when practicing beside a teacher. In the same way, the left and right pedals can be reassigned to act as damper pedals for either side of the split keyboard. The RP-301R also has a built-in metronome and recorder so you can practice with a perfect time reference and record and listen back to your performances. The built-in song library includes a selection of classical piano etudes — great for practice sessions. You can also play along with audio or SMF song data on USB memory. The onboard LCD helps you find a song, tone, or rhythm accompaniment quickly by name.
With the RP-301R, you can play day or night, year after year, and enjoy perfect sound and performance. Since the instrument is fully digital, there are no strings to tune, and no need to worry about temperature changes or aging strings. Furthermore, the RP-301R gives you the choice of playing through its built-in speakers, its external output, and/or through headphones so you can practice privately day or night without disturbing your neighbors. The built-in external input lets you connect an audio player for play-along fun.
