[Musikmesse] Roland FP-4F
Roland introduces the FP-4F Digital Piano, the latest member of the FP piano family to feature SuperNATURAL piano technology.
The FP-4F's SuperNATURAL piano engine comes with an Ivory Feel-G keyboard with Escapement. This keyboard offers a grand piano playing feel and an escapement mechanism, according to Roland. It also features Roland's Ivory Feel, with the white keys designed to replicate the appearance and feel of real ivory keys.
The onboard Session Partner offers automatic accompaniments in a variety of styles. Users can play along with accompaniment that includes chords, bass, and drums, and they can also create their own chord progressions with arrangements. In addition, a USB port gives the musician the ability to play along with music files stored on USB flash media. CD song playback is also possible with the optional CD-01A CD drive. The FP-4 also includes a Centre Cancel function, allowing players to decrease the volume of vocals and melodic instruments heard at the centre of the sound field when playing an audio file.
Navigating the FP-4F's sounds and features is done through the front-panel display and buttons, and stereo sound is provided via the onboard amplification system. Options include the matching KSC-44 stand, as well as the RPU-3 Triple Pedal Unit.
