From powerful bass to brilliant treble. Roland Piano Digital Piano Sound is an 88-key stereo multi-sampling piano sound source created by thoroughly pursuing the characteristics of a full concert grand piano. By sampling all 88 keys of various grand pianos, which are called world-famous instruments, one key at a time, the differences in the sound and sound of each keyboard are faithfully reproduced. The sound of a full concert grand piano itself reverberates brilliantly. The maximum polyphony is 128 sounds. Even songs that make heavy use of damper pedals and songs with fast passages can be heard firmly to the lingering sound.
"Piano resonance" can express the subtle nuances peculiar to a grand piano. The resonance between the strings, the beautiful spread of the sound produced when the damper pedal is pressed, and the change in the lingering sound that differs depending on the speed of key release are beautifully reproduced. It has a rich performance expressive power as a piano.
"3D Sound Control" realizes a sense of depth that exceeds the size of the main unit, as if you were playing a full concert grand piano. The effect can be obtained in the same way when wearing headphones. At the same time, by using "Dynamics Sound Control" that can add sharpness to the piano sound, you can feel the graininess of the piano sound even in the ensemble.
The HP205 is equipped with a new speaker system "Grand Piano Presence II" that allows the highest quality piano sounds to be heard thoroughly. Speakers for high frequencies and mid-low frequencies are arranged in stereo. With the laid-back treble that spreads toward the player and the rich bass that echoes from your feet, you can play with the feeling of being wrapped in the sound of a grand piano.
The damper pedal and soft pedal can continuously detect the delicate depression of the pedal. It enables delicate performance expression using the pedal, such as a slight change in the sound when the damper touches or does not touch the strings, and a change in the degree of extension of the sound when the damper pedal is gradually depressed.
Like a grand piano, it has a natural touch that moves only with the weight of a hammer without using a spring. The bass range is solid, and the treble range is light and comfortable to play. It reproduces the touch peculiar to a grand piano, that when you play it weakly, it sinks quickly, and when you play it strongly, you feel a firm response. In addition, the evolved PHAⅡ keyboard has further improved the responsiveness, and the expressive power from pianissimo to fortissimo has become even richer.
The escapement mechanism reproduces the click feeling peculiar to a grand piano, in which when you press the keyboard slowly, the feeling of resistance increases on the way and then it becomes lighter. A rich expression such as more delicate pianissimo can be achieved.
Using the finest grand piano as a model, the white keys are made of ivory, and the black keys are made of a new hygroscopic material that reproduces the natural texture and feel of ebony. It fits comfortably in your hand and promises a comfortable feel. In addition, the white key incorporates a two-piece structure of "base material + surface material" to achieve the appearance of an acoustic piano and reduce noise when the fingernail hits the keyboard.
With HP205, you can switch touches such as light / standard / heavy. You can adjust the touch feeling of the keyboard according to the strength of your fingers and the purpose of the lesson.
In addition, the playing feeling peculiar to a grand piano is reproduced, in which the hammer moves gently as you gently play the keyboard, and the timing of pronunciation is slightly delayed ("hammer response"). Brings a delicate expression due to the difference in touch.
