When it comes to choosing a digital piano, you normally get to pick two from playable, portable or affordable. Need one? You'll have to sacrifice on another. But not with the Roland FP-50 - the digital piano without compromise: the authentic tone and touch of an acoustic grand piano, but weighing in at just 15kg.
And unlike most digital pianos in this size and price bracket, the FP80 also includes a built-in speaker system, so you can play whereever you are.
In addition to all the features of its little brother the FP-50, the FP-80 also includes:
The Roland FP-80 is the digital piano designed for both home and live use. It's comfortable enough to play every day - not just for those big gigs - with a keyboard that replicate the appearance, texture, and moisture absorbing properties of real ivory.
The inclusion of Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine means it's as responsive sound-wise as a real piano, with incredibly authentic attack, decay and transition between notes.
Roland’s Acoustic Projection technology in the four built-in speakers envelops you in beautiful, immersive sound that convincingly emulates the sound of a grand piano, plus the onboard vocal harmonist effect for use with the mic input instantly creates vocal harmonies based on the singer’s voice; a great way to add depth and emotion to a performance. You can also record these whole performances (piano playing and vocal) onto USB and transfer to your computer to edit, burn or share.
Perfect for practice: You can turn off the built-in speakers and play privately using headphones, allowing you to practice day or night without disturbing family members or neighbours. The on-board Rhythm accompaniments can help you develop your timing and groove, and the wide selection of on-board music styles help expand your versatility. The optional USB memory also lets you play along with your favourite songs saved as WAV audio files, but here’s the clever bit: you can change the key and adjust the speed of the audio, and even reduce the sound of pre-recorded vocals so you can sing over the top. Best of all, you can record your performances back to USB memory as audio data, useful for composing or self-evaluation.
The FP-80 works with Roland Wireless Connect and the free Air Performer app, and you can play along with your favourite songs in your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch through the FP-50’s sound system. Roland Wireless Connect is simple to set up and use, providing convenient, cable-free communication with Apple iOS devices via Roland’s optional WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter (not included).
Piano Designer App Grab the WNA1100 Wireless dongle for access to a world of piano sounds via the Piano Designer app. Adjust everything from the type of piano to the acoustics can be controlled and adjusted via your iOS device.
