Roland announce the HP500 series, the latest additions to its lineup of cabinet-style digital pianos.
The HP500 Series is equipped with Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine.
To compliment the SuperNATURAL Piano engine in the HP507 and HP505, Roland has recently developed the Acoustic Projection sound system. Derived from the multi-channel sound technology found in the V-Piano Grand, the Acoustic Projection system is designed to offer a "multidimensional sound field that recreates the vibrant and enveloping experience of playing an acoustic grand piano," Roland promises.
The HP500 series includes Ivory Feel keyboard and a progressive damper action pedal. All models offer a LCD and panel layout, as well as onboard three-track recording and audio recording/playback with optional USB flash memory. Audio playback controls such as Center Cancel, transpose, and tempo change are suited for practice and playing along.
The HP507 has a six-channel Acoustic Projection system onboard, and is equipped with PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with Escapement. The HP505 comes with a four-channel Acoustic Projection system, as well as the PHA III. Both models are available in Simulated Rosewood, Satin Black, or Polished Ebony finishes.
The entry-level HP503 offers the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, along with the Ivory Feel-S keyboard with Escapement, as well as the Progressive Damper Action Pedal. The HP503 is available in Simulated Rosewood or Satin Black finishes.
The HP500 Series Digital Pianos are expected be available in April 2012.
