Description

Top-Level Features Bring the Joy of Playing Piano to Your Entire Family

Bringing together the best of Roland’s piano technologies in one attractive, space-saving instrument, the HPi-50 offers premium performance at an incredible value. The acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine delivers rich, gorgeous tone, while the PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with Escapement provides a true grand piano touch that endlessly inspires. Powerful onboard DigiScore features are displayed in high resolution on the large color LCD built into the music rest, with digital sheet music and a wide range of skill-building exercises and games that make learning and playing fun for all ages, from children to adults. Rounding out the impressive HPi-50 is the advanced Acoustic Projection audio system, which fills your living space with beautiful, natural piano sound.

SUPERNATURAL PIANO ONBOARD

The HPi-50 features Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine for seamless velocity response, natural note decay, and authentic key-range behavior, delivering perfect piano sound and expression. As you play, the tone color changes naturally in response to your touch, from the softest notes to the loudest. Tone decay is also natural and organic, with the sound not only decreasing in volume, but also gradually softening in tone as the notes fade away. With SuperNATURAL Piano technology, every note has its own character, faithful to the performance of a real acoustic grand.

MAGNIFICENT TOUCH WITH PHA III

Further enhancing the SuperNATURAL Piano experience is the flagship PHA III (Progressive Hammer Action III) Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement. With its fast key repetition and sensitivity, this keyboard faithfully translates the subtle tonal differences of different playing styles and the force at which the keys are played. Additionally, the keys are finished with a unique material that has moisture-absorbing properties, offering the natural texture and tactile sensation of real ivory and ebony.

HIGH-RESOLUTION DIGISCORE

Roland’s DigiScore displays digital sheet music on the large, built-in color LCD. The resolution has been greatly enhanced over previous models, with the ability to show 32nd notes and up to 48 measures* of music at one time. In addition, the new Auto Sync feature ensures that the onscreen notation perfectly follows your performance regardless of your tempo, with the digital pages turned in sync as well. Onboard exercises make sharpening your skills challenging and fun, as do numerous features such as the graphical metronome, onscreen keyboard, fingering number display, and many others.
