Totally Tasty 88-key Digital PianoWhat do you want in a piano? Fantastic feel has to be at the top of the list, but so is great sound! You get both with the Roland FP-4F digital piano. Roland has turbocharged its successful FP-4 piano concept, and given us a beautiful instrument that will lift you to new musical heights. Driven by the acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano engine, the FP-4F features a deluxe Ivory Feel-G Keyboard with Escapement. In acoustic pianos, escapement is the doohickey that allows the hammer to be released from the key just before hitting the string. For a digital piano to have realistic feel, escapement is a must to get right - and the FP-4F does, offering amazing touch, tone, and expressiveness in a compact and lightweight instrument.
The FP-4F's SuperNATURAL Piano engine combines Roland's award-winning V-Piano technology with an extraordinary 88-key stereo multisampling core. Roland has carefully examined the sonics of world-class concert pianos, and painstakingly reproduced the tonal colors and expressiveness of a fine acoustic grand. When it comes to playing feel, SuperNATURAL delivers the real deal: seamless tone variation, silky decay (without nasty loops), and mondo expressiveness in each individual key. Endowed with Roland's acclaimed Progressive Hammer Action with Escapement, the FP-4F's Ivory Feel-G keyboard has the look and feel of keyboards found on Roland's high-end pianos.
The FP-4F's got some slick features under the hood. Session Partner provides rhythm and accompaniment patterns created by pro musicians, letting you play along with your own virtual backing band. Let the FP-4F play chord changes and improvs - or add accompaniment to a sing-along piece during a live performance. Scroll through the wide range of onboard rhythm patterns and check out the cool "musical metronomes" for improving your timing.
Wow - but there's more! Easily store your performances and settings using the FP-4F's USB flash memory slot. Download SMF and WAV files from your computer and play them via the USB memory key to add backing tracks to a live performance or play along with pre-recorded songs. Connect the optional CD-01A USB CD drive to blend your keyboard performance with your favorite audio CDs. For your play-along jollies, kick in Center Cancel to minimize pre-recorded vocals or lead instruments. Use Tempo Change to speed up or slow down a track without changing the pitch. The FP-4F's onboard speakers may be compact in size, but they deliver a dynamic, lush soundscape that's just right for intimate performances. At home and in smaller venues, simply plug in and play without having to lug along a separate amp or set up a PA system.
The FP-4F blends visually into any setting and has as a small footprint - for an 88-key piano. With its trim chassis and back-friendly 36 pounds, the FP-4F is easy to move about, and it's available in chill white or goes-with-everything black. Whether onstage or in your crib, the FP-4F's bright and clear LCD lets you know what's going on. You can place the FP-4F on any flat surface, or add the optional matching stand for total piano vibe. Playing out? Go for the optional, collapsible KS-18Z stand for the ultimate in portability. The included DP-10 Damper Pedal offers continuous-pedaling capability, but if you must have the full-on grand piano experience, step up to the optional RPU-3 Triple-Pedal.
The Roland FP-4F digital piano is all about tasty feel, scrumptious sound, and some innovative features - all shoehorned into a lightweight, elegant package. Check it out.
