Top Piano Expression and Inspiring Features in a Sleek, Contemporary Design

Stylish and portable, the FP-80 Digital Piano brings a rich and rewarding musical experience to every piano lover. The acclaimed SuperNATURAL® Piano sound engine and Ivory Feel-S Keyboard deliver authentic tone and touch, while an onboard multi-channel speaker system equipped with Roland’s Acoustic Projection technology envelops you with beautiful, immersive sound. The advanced rhythm feature further expands the joy of playing the piano, providing dynamic, sophisticated accompaniments that automatically follow your performances in real time. Available in attractive black or white finishes, the versatile FP-80 is perfect for a wide range of applications, including stage performing, the classroom, daily practice, and entertainment at home.

ROLAND’S PREMIER TECHNOLOGIES FOR AN AUTHENTIC PIANO EXPERIENCE AT HOME

The stylish and sophisticated FP-80 is the ideal choice for piano enjoyment in modern living spaces, offering tone, touch, and expressiveness to satisfy even the most demanding players. Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano technology powers the onboard grand piano sounds, delivering world-class performance with seamless velocity response, natural tone decay, and authentic key-range behavior. The Ivory Feel-S Keyboard with Escapement provides true grand piano feel and expressiveness, with keys that replicate the unique appearance, texture, and moisture-absorbing properties of real ivory. Incorporating four discrete speakers, the innovative Acoustic Projection sound system recreates the natural, organic sound field of an acoustic grand, filling your home with rich, beautiful tones. You’ll also love the intuitive Piano Designer feature, which makes it easy to personalize the FP-80’s tone and response to suit your taste.

PRO-LEVEL SOUNDS AND RHYTHM FEATURES BRING VERSATILITY FOR LIVE PLAYING

If you play on stage as a solo performer or with a band, the mobile FP-80 is a ready companion, providing authentic piano expression everywhere you go. In addition to acoustic pianos, it’s filled with a large selection of premium sounds for the stage, including SuperNATURAL-based classic EPs, essential organ tones, strings, modern synths, and more. The Acoustic Projection sound system is useful for personal monitoring on large stages, and is suitable for primary amplification in intimate venues. When you play solo, the rhythm function makes your piano performances shine with beautiful and sophisticated backing. Intelligent full-keyboard chord recognition gives you complete control of your personal band, with automatic accompaniment that dutifully follows whatever you play. The convenient rear-panel jack lets you connect an external mic and sing along with your performance, and you can even add real-time harmony effects to your voice based on the chords you play.

UNIQUE DIGITAL ADVANTAGES ENHANCE MUSIC PRACTICE AND COMPOSITION

The FP-80’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. The Rhythm accompaniments help you develop your sense of timing and groove as you play along with various music styles, and the Chord Pattern function lets you play along with automatic chord sequences for practicing improvisation in different keys. 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.

HARMONY EFFECT AND AIR RECORDER FOR MORE MUSICAL FUN

The FP-80 offers a variety of ways to extend and enhance your piano enjoyment. While entertaining at home, connect a mic and encourage friends and family to sing along, and add in the harmony effect for automatic vocal harmonies that are sure to impress. Plug in a USB memory stick to record the piano and vocal performances as audio data, and then transfer the audio to a computer to share memories of the occasion with everyone involved. Using the optional Roland WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter, the FP-80 can also communicate with Apple’s popular iOS devices via Roland Wireless Connect. With the free Air Recorder app, you can play along with your favorite songs stored in your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and record your performance into the app at the same time.
