Among the 41 new Roland "2003" here's a small rvolutions discrtes that caught my attention: The Roland FP-5. The FP-5 is the new Roland Piano numrique portable 88-intgrant the new keyboard technology (reproduction of the dual exhaust).
It possde 7 groups of 64 sound variations (catgories / Family sounds) including 6 programs organ drawbars and 4 kits from the battery module XV5080 like everything else for that matter. More than 256 internal sounds (via e module internal accessible pm) offers a multitimbral instrument (GM2 / GS). The particularity of this instrument is that of del-possder an excellent sound quality (via Audio output / can be estimated that the amplification intrinsque of the instrument is enjoyable in an apartment or as an adjunct Back to branch scne but when the FP-5 on a system audio srieux: It's rgal). I test at a scne Backline and what struck the musicians there is the balance between bass and treble. The sound is deep and enjoyable trs. In terms of sound there are only the sounds of Piano PC2, K2600, and the module Yamaha Silent Pianos me arrested.
State fact, the FP-5 processor possde Style Partner offering gimics into 5 parts (Drum - Bass - Chords - etc.). Thanks and shows its LED screen rotates agreements with the two time advance to allow the anticipation of improvisation or plan. Also available with the rear USB port, the user is able to store in a memory buffer of a max squence midifile couraging it has with the software of their choice and tranfrer through the port in the FP-5 thanks to Roland CDRom Driver comes with USB.
Moral: The musician points to scne with its program of internal and x morceux if prvu when recording to validate recognition agreements since its 'Songs' What's going on there ... Led the ? Excellent.
Cts connections: While sr 2xOut 6.35mm (sym / asym) 2xInput 6.35 (sym / asym) 2xPhones 3.5 Stereo, USB, MIDI In / Out jacks Damper (with book ), Soft *, Sostenuto * (* assignable) and the DC power supply of the spare book.
Touch is really excellent. OK, some pianists say "Mouuuuaaaais, the keyboard is softer than the Yamaha P60/P80/P120." Of course! But I made an in-store study the hardness of the 88-key hammer keyboards (Yamaha P120 / Roland FP5 / SP300 Korg / Kawai MP9000 and ES1) against a conventional Piano vritable whose particularity is to be quiet when you want, the Yamaha U1 Silent apprcier for all the nuances of DIFFERENT touches. Well, here = P120/P80/P60 The Yamaha is so heavy as to be heavier than a piano and vritable mcanique following comes closest to +? Jackpot, the Roland FP-5! Except, hh must not make the couse of the note depth does not possde amplitude Espree. So pianistically .... Mouuuaaaiss ... ! Yamaha P120. Now, all the environment and architecture of the FP-5 is carrment gniale, the sound is terrible it's a really good instrument amplifier and sound quality comes from the intrinsque XV5080. APRS So, you continue the article of this product objectively, is a hard rev myself since I never took as much pleasure on a piano numrique of scne that since the first day on my hands I pos on the first PC2X Kurzweil. The Fp-5 will be my choice deuxime. The particularity of this product is that it was understood, it is amplified but possde a USB port to transfer the squence MIDI File into the keyboard and left with her songs in a SET m Buffer memory for absolute autonomy.
Operation is simple, it is regrettable shortcuts exhaustive or select other menus for scne but for those who want good sound at the right time, "attention is a hot spot!" . In addition there possde a section which serves PARTNER rhythmic driver for RPET or trainig with drum loops and bass and guitar Gimics of all served in a relaxed Funky - Groove - Jazz - Soul not conceals. Enregitreur Internal Causes! All there!
The sounds are those of Roland XV5080. Fewer but high quality. The piano is simply a monster, he tends to take almost any bed in any mix or an album faade. The bandwidth is so broad that it does not let the sound of the FP-5 canibalisent whole mix. But damn, excuse me, the term, what instrument.
OK, the race of the note could have been deeper but for parties Clavinet, Organ or other, do we need to note the race of genuine? If you want to make authentic and MIDI is a Yamaha Silent achte or Seiler or equivalent. In short, the amplification is as good in the house back on scne, the sounds are excellent and everything is served in a beautiful instrument champagne iodine. If your song refers your feathers, you are the phnix of these woods ...
Indicative price: around 1900 euros public. but then does a Grave!

88 keys, hammers mcanismes trsraliste my opinion.
A lot of sound. There is good and less good Obviously. The piano sounds are good trs, even if we reconnatre that the progression of rock piano treble tends to be too fast (that being said, playing with the brilliance, there are ways to fix that). A lot of choice in GM2 sounds that bring the piano playability supplmentaires apprciables done everything. The sounds of organ and Rhodes are also quite good gnral.
Touch is tip-top nickel. In any case it suits me perfectly, I have not encountered as practitioner. As mentioned Previous notice, I doubt that the race of note is the depth of a real piano, but even when there is not a big diffrence.
The configuration is very simple. I ram a little beginners to find out how to save presets history be in the right config in concert with a touch of a button, but it's actually quite simple (for those that have int drought, I put the march forward - who is in the manual, but hey, I pass several times without seeing ct - on the forum).
As for MIDI, I have not had reason to try.
The manual is quite well done. Nothing to say this.
While the sound is pure bliss! A piano (grand piano) is simply amazing, I'm still same bluff After months of use. With the amplification intgre is dj trs good, but by connecting the amplification of bte drinking is the vamp so that's good!
In Manir gnrale, the sounds are of good quality trs. Small BMOL: the guitar sounds that are not much and the sounds of flute, in short not the most important I think.
Touch is good trs, trs the sensitivity goes well and you get to express everything you want in terms of its style and mood. Trs good rendering this level.
I do not really mind about aftertouch, as the sounds that use it are not my prfres (guitar, scat, etc.)..
I use it for over 8 months and always with the same pleasure.
J'apprcie its look nice and trs class, its sounds good trs, the relative ease with which it can make its presets to play concert (too bad, unfortunately the number of presets is a little right). Vritable only regret: his weight! 25 + kg and 5 kg of the cover, has us lugging 30 kg in my stairs once a week (round trip) to rpter, but if the quality is the price, my back will not mind too much! O)
I would do without a doubt the same choice. I hsit a little time with the RD-300 SX that I think is still an excellent choice also, but I wanted to have an amplifier to play piano numrique home without burden myself d a bulky external amplification.
In short, j'enlve point for weight and for a small lack of solutions presets, but it's really cranky for a bit ...

Skylenet's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
88 keys, 2 HP integrated but not very powerful, Midi input and output, 3 footswitch inputs, sounds:
guitars and basses,
and simulation of electric organ drawbar.
Possibility of split the keyboard into two zones,
possibility of perceived support / bass / instrument non-editable.
Reverb and base effects (chorus, rotary, phaser, distortion, etc.).
Very nice touch, lighter than a real piano, but remains realistic.
It fits wonderfully with my use (mostly jazz).
Manual clear and sufficient.
General configuration is very simple, impossible to lose.
By noon, I only use the keyboard, which happens without any problems. I prefer to play midi with my Axiom Roland: Roland's touch allows much more precision and finesse!
The sounds are very suitable, and even better. Mostly acoustic piano, electric piano and some few organ sounds: very realistic. Other sounds are correct, I see them more as accreditation.
The expression is very good. The effects are quite effective. That said, to a professional game, firstly because the hp integrated amplifier are good enough, secondly maybe use another reverb than the roland.
There is no sound that I hate about this piano. While I am not a fan of bands, but they stay abreast of everything that happens.
I use it for 7 years. I tried a Yamaha, Roland other, and quite a little less ambitious keyboard (Technics, even Bontempi!)
Between a Roland or a Yamaha, must make a choice: I envy those who can have a very frank opinion about it. I had a lot of personal trouble deciding. But I do not regret having this cool keyboard at home.
I play a lot with headphones for better sound reproduction than the speaker, and I never get tired of this instrument. I do not intend to buy another electric keyboard: it is very good.
