[NAMM] Roland RD-700GX and RD-300GX

The famous Roland RD series is getting bigger with the RD-700GX and the RD-300GX.


The RD-700GX features:
  • Stunning 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano sounds
  • 88-key weighted keyboards: PHA II “Ivory Feel” with Escapement
  • SuperNATURAL electric pianos for unprecedented realism
  • Audio playback of WAV, AIFF, and MP3 files via USB memory; easy on stage control with Audio Key feature
  • Piano Designer function for creating the perfect custom instruments, plus eight multi-effects processors
  • Three MIDI outputs, multiple zones for master-control functionality

The RD-700GX is anchored by Roland’s 88-key stereo multisampled piano engine including a brand-new expressive piano sound, with every note captured using a generous amount of wave capacity. In addition to the onboard piano sound-sets, other essential instruments are built into these new pianos, including EPs. You can even customize and save your sounds for instant recall.

The RD-700GX features PHA II “Ivory Feel” keyboard with Escapement. This keyboard technology reproduces the real surface feel of ivory acoustic piano keys providing a familiar stability and comfort to the pianist. The keys are designed to absorb moisture, ensuring a secure, slip-proof feel, even in the hottest stage environments where sweaty hands can spell disaster.

Another distinguishing feature of the RD-700GX is its electric-piano sound bank derived from Roland’s unique SuperNATURAL technology.

Play audio through the RD-700GX directly from a USB memory key. Flexible file compatibility enables playback of Standard MIDI Files, WAV, AIFF and MP3s. The "Audio Key" feature lets you use the bottom 15 keys for controlling start song, song length, etc. In addition, you can connect directly to a PC via USB and tap into Cakewalk SONAR LE software, included in every RD-700GX package.

For those who like to get inside an instrument and customize its sounds, the RD-700GX’s Piano Designer feature is your key to unlocking and personalizing the sound-set, down to the smallest details such as Hammer Noise, Damper Resonance, Duplex Scale, and more. In the RD-700GX, sounds can be further customized with the 8 channels of powerful onboard multi-effects.

Expand and personalize the internal sound-set by adding up to two optional Roland SRX expansion boards, then take your music to the stage. The RD-700GX makes great master controller, thanks to multi-zone functionality and three MIDI outputs.

Concerning the RD-300GX:
  • Stunning 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano sounds
  • 88-key weighted keyboards: PHA alpha II
  • Audio playback of WAV, AIFF, and MP3 files via USB memory; easy onstage control with Audio Key feature
