Roland Corporation is a leading manufacturer and distributor of electronic musical instruments. With over 40 years of innovation that continues to shape the sound of modern music, Roland sets the standards in music technology for the world to follow. Roland’s award-winning digital pianos deliver top-level touch and tone plus unmatched education and technology features. Their classic-styled instruments provide the authentic look and feel of traditional pianos but offer many special features that you cannot find in an acoustic piano.
Roland’s SuperNATURAL® Piano sound engine is the Dynamic Harmonic feature, which allows you to explore even greater dynamic expression when playing fortissimo passages. Just like a fine acoustic grand, each note has its own character, and the tonal color changes seamlessly in response to your touch to accurately translate your emotions into sound. Tone decay is natural and organic, with the sound not only decreasing in volume, but also gradually changing in color to a softer tone. In addition to authentic grand piano tones, upright piano tones are now included as well, which provide the unique short decay and up-close sound of a traditional upright instrument.
The new PHA-4 Concert Keyboard with Escapement and Ebony/Ivory Feel provides a touch that’s more responsive than ever, while Individual Note Voicing gives you unprecedented control for finding your perfect piano sound, one note at a time. With fast key repetition and high-resolution sensing, the PHA-4 faithfully translates into sound the subtlest differences in tone from different playing styles and dynamics. In addition, the keys are finished with specially developed materials that have moisture-absorbing properties, providing the natural texture and tactile sensation of real ivory and ebony keys on a fine acoustic grand. The PHA-4’s authentic hammer-action mechanism also produces less audible noise than previous designs, a welcome feature for not disturbing others when playing with the speakers muted during practice sessions with headphones.
Acoustic Projection technology delivers stunningly rich, multi-dimensional sound from the onboard speaker system, and you can now enjoy the unique sound field of an acoustic piano during private practice sessions as well with the Headphones 3D Ambience effect. Adding in great extras such as the built-in recorder and compatibility with Roland’s piano apps for Apple iOS devices, Roland digital pianos seamlessly blend the traditional and modern to provide endless inspiration for all piano enthusiasts, from young students and hobbyists to the most advanced players.
