Creating a digital piano that sounds and feels as close to an acoustic piano is not an easy task, but most manufacturers do put in their efforts to give you a piano that combines the best of both the worlds – digital as well as acoustic. The Roland V-piano is one such digital piano.
Imagine, a keyboard so well crafted to imitate an old style upright piano, that its sound could fool blindfolded piano players.
This may sound a bit like a hype but then this is what you could expect when playing a Roland stage piano.
Roland stage pianos have been perfected right down to finer details as the key clacks, hammer strikes, responsive midrange, ringing bass, and superior treble response. Even the vibe and sonic heft have been greatly defined to mimic that of an acoustic piano.
Also imagine if the controls of your stage piano felt so smooth and natural that you hated to remove your hands from the keyboard, especially if all the main controls were close at hand and easily accessed.
Great sounding reverbs, chorus, effects as well as split and layering functions may be created with little effort on your part. You could produce fine sounding music that will impress your friends or any musicians you consider playing with.
Roland stage pianos are pricier than most other brands but are well worth every penny because of their superior features. The RD 700SX is the leading onstage digital piano on the market. These units also weigh a bit more than most others but then they look rock-solid as well, making them gig-ready.
