Roland has announced the DP-990R Designer Piano.
The DP-990R adds Roland'sPHA II Ivory Feel keys, which are made of moisture-absorbent material to offer the natural look and tactile feel of real ivory and ebony, the company says. The keyboard's escapement mechanism is designed to produce the beloved "clicking" feel of a grand piano.
The DP-990R features an 88-key concert grand sound with individual multi-samples for every key. A range of piano customization is designed to enable you to design your own unique piano sound by adjusting Damper, Strings, and Key-off resonance.
An onboard USB port is designed to provide add-on functionality to the DP-990. You can play along with audio files or standard MIDI files directly from the USB memory key, or layer pre-recorded music with your performances by connecting a USB CD drive (optional).
For quick and easy playback, the DP-990R comes equipped with a Roland Audio Port which allows you connect any portable music player for play-along fun.
General availability of the DP-990R is expected in July 2009.
