The new Roland FP-7F Digital Piano is the latest addition to Roland’s FP series piano and family. Spotting a compact, portable, stylish design and with built-in speakers, the contemporary piano will no doubt continue the legacy of being a top-seller in its range. The new FP-7F incorporates four major new features; SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, a unique all-new PHA III Ivory Feel-S Keyboard with Escapement, an onboard looper and a vocal mic input with companion Harmony effects.
The Roland FP-7F represents Roland’s ongoing commitment to advanced technology and musical creativity. The FP-7F’s crown jewel is its SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine. This breakthru’ technology addresses previous three major elements ; velocity and key range gaps, and unnatural looping in note decay. The SuperNATURAL Piano technology enhances the gaps and creates the ultimate piano playing experience, delivering seamless variations in tone from pianissimo to fortissimo, notes that fade naturally without looping, and three-dimensional sound and response. The FP-7F’s unique all new PHA III Ivory Feel-S Keyboard with Escapement, delivers the same progressive hammer action and escapement mechanism. Additionally, this new keyboard gives players unmatched expression and performance authenticity, capable of transforming the most subtle finger nuances into sound. And also provides incredibly fast key-repetition action. Keyboard players can also fully optimise on the onboad looper. The looper enables a player record and play back their performance as a continuous audio loop. This is great for creating play-along backing, and unlimited overdubs can be added as well. Players can record the sounds of the FP-7F itself and from a connected vocal microphone. Additionally, loops create can be saved as WAV files to USB flash media and used with the FP-7F’s USB Audio Key playback feature.
In addition, the Roland FP-7F also features a built-in microphone input, for sing-along fun. The powerful onboard Harmony engine derived from BOSS VE-20 Vocal Processor enables users add duet, trio, and quartet harmonies to their own voice with effects. To create the harmony voices, the Harmony engine automatically detects the chords the user plays on the keyboard in real time. The new, affordable and portable keyboard weight merely 24 kg. This compact contemporary piano is available in black and white finishes, and is great for songwriters, professional stage performers, and even home entertainment and enjoyment.
