The Roland FP-30 Digital Piano is the latest innovation to come from Roland’s line of digital pianos. The instrument offers Roland’s acclaimed sound, feel and modern features while maintaining a light and compact design that fits everyone from the traveling musician to the classroom teacher. If you don’t have the space or budget for a full-sized instrument, the FP-30 is perfect for you.
We’ve gone ahead and tried out the FP-30 for ourselves and here are our favourite features of the innovative new instrument.
While it boasts affordability and compact design, it maintains superior sound and touch that satisfies even the most experienced pianists. In fact, it has the most powerful sound in its class. Supporting the FP-30’s advanced SuperNATURAL Piano engine is a powerful onboard sound system, along with a newly developed keyboard that inherits the touch, escapement, and Ivory Feel keys found in our high-end home pianos.
The FP-30 also includes several features that make it easier and more fun than ever to learn to play. Bluetooth wireless is built in to the FP-30 allowing you to connect MIDI music apps on your mobile device. As well, USB is supported so that you can play along with your favourite songs and save your SMF songs captured with the FP-30’s recorder. You’ll find non-piano sounds, including organs, strings, and voices that will let you enjoy all types of music styles, and a variety of drum patterns are on board to back you up. Playing along with your music teacher is also easier than ever with ‘Twin Piano’ mode, which allows student and teacher to play side by side in the same octave ranges. And when you’re practicing alone, you can plug in your headphones and keep the missed notes to yourself.
And lastly, the FP-30 is designed with both functionality and style in mind. It’s sleek, elegant look is available in both black and white. It also has the smallest footprint in its class and is light weight enough to travel with you or fit in to the smaller spaces of your home. For a traditional setup, the optional KSC-70 stand and KPD-70 three-pedal unit provide an integrated look and classic pedal configuration while maintaining a much smaller footprint than a typical upright piano.
