Description

Authentic Piano Performance to Go

Travel-friendly and affordable, the FP-50 brings you top-class piano performance along with many other great features to enhance your playing enjoyment. At your fingers is the authentic tone and touch of an acoustic grand, plus a large selection of versatile sounds for performing in a variety of situations. The intelligent rhythm feature makes it simple to create incredible music, providing dynamic, sophisticated accompaniments that automatically follow your performances in real time. And with its compact, stylish design and built-in speaker system, the FP-50 is always ready to go wherever you want to play.

A NEW LEVEL OF PIANO PERFORMANCE AT HOME

The FP-50’s authentic piano sound and touch provides top-level performance for playing all musical genres, from classical and jazz to rock and pop. Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine faithfully replicates the unmatched tone color and expressiveness of the finest acoustic grand pianos, delivering seamless velocity response, natural tone decay, and authentic key-range behavior. Supreme playability comes from the Ivory Feel-G Keyboard with Escapement, which inherits the functions, appearance, and texture of keyboards found in our flagship pianos. At an affordable price, the stylish FP-50 offers sound, touch, and expressiveness rivaling that of high-end instruments.

VERSATILE FEATURES AND EASY MOBILITY FOR LIVE PLAYERS

Streamlined and compact, the FP-50 is easy to transport anywhere. In addition to premium acoustic pianos, it’s filled with a large selection of stage-ready sounds, including SuperNATURAL-based classic EPs, essential organ tones, strings, modern synths, and more. Stereo outputs let you connect to an external amplification system, while the built-in speakers help you monitor your performance while on stage. The intelligent rhythm feature gives you control of an entire onboard backing band for solo performing, with automatic accompaniment that follows whatever you play on the keyboard.

DIGITAL ADVANTAGES FOR DEVELOPING PIANO SKILLS

The FP-50’s digital technology offers many great benefits that enhance your piano practice sessions. You can turn off the built-in speakers and play privately using headphones, allowing you to practice day or night without disturbing family members or neighbors. Rhythm accompaniments assist you in developing timing and groove, and the wide selection of music styles help expand your versatility. Via optional USB memory, you can play along with WAV audio files using various playback options such as key transposition, tempo adjustment, and Center Cancel, and record your performances as audio data for composing or self-evaluation. SMF songs can be played from USB memory as well.

FUN AIR PERFORMER APP FOR IOS DEVICES

Extend your piano enjoyment with Roland Wireless Connect and the free Air Performer app, which lets you play along with your favorite songs in your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch through the FP-50’s sound system. Roland Wireless Connect is simple to set up and use, providing convenient, cable-free communication with Apple iOS devices via Roland’s optional WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter.
