New Dimensions in Piano Sound
The elegant, upright-styled LX-15 combines Roland's latest technologies for a complete, organic piano experience. Equipped with a SuperNATURAL Piano engine with Soundboard Behavior, an innovative multi-dimensional Acoustic Projection sound system, a premium PHA III Ivory Feel keyboard, and Progressive Damper-Action Pedal, the LX-15 is an ideal instrument for serious piano enthusiasts, as well as beginners at home. Experience perfect piano sound, touch, and response delivered through an amazing sound system â€” and all from within a graceful cabinet.
Innovative Acoustic Projection Sound System
The LX-15's newly developed Acoustic Projection sound system creates a multi-dimensional sound field with accurate piano-resonance characteristics. The technology is derived from Roland's acclaimed V-Piano Grand sound system. Six speakers are used for this system: The upper speakers provide ambience or various resonance portions; the middle speakers, located near the keyboard, enhance the image of the direct piano sound; the lower speakers recreate the piano body sound for rich bass and energy. The blend of those speakers creates a unique, deep sound field that dramatically enhances the expressiveness of the SuperNATURAL Piano.
SuperNATURAL Piano with Soundboard Behavior
The LX-15 incorporates Roland's SuperNATURAL Piano technology for seamless velocity response, natural note decay, and authentic key-range behavior to reproduce perfect piano sound and expression. Newly developed Soundboard Behavior technology emulates the natural characteristics of string vibrations on the soundboard, and is not found on conventional sampling pianos. The technology is based on the V-Piano's soundboard modeling, and can enhance sound clarity even when many notes are played simultaneously.
Expanded Piano Selection
The built-in piano selection has been expanded in the LX-15. In addition to modern grand-piano sounds, a newly added Early Piano category contains four fortepiano variations and two harpsichord variations. Enjoy a treasured lineup of instruments new and old, spanning centuries.
Polished-Ebony Finished Cabinet
The LX-15's polished-ebony finish gorgeous design cabinet features a contoured design for a strong, bold look with classical elegance. The graceful design fits well into any home environment, from classic to contemporary interiors. The mirror-finished fallboard reflects the keyboard and moving fingers, bringing a sense of visual enjoyment to your playing. The top lid can be closed and opened smoothly to shape the piano's overall tonal character.
PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with Escapement
Roland's high-end PHA III keyboard accurately responds to the players touch, from the most subtle and delicate to the most dynamic technique. The escapement mechanism reproduces the authentic click-feel of a grand-piano keyboard. The keyboard also features Roland's acclaimed Ivory Feel surface material, which replicates the texture of ivory and ebony.
Progressive Damper Action Pedal
The LX-15's Progressive Damper Action pedal accurately reproduces the pedal response of an acoustic piano. When you first start to press the damper pedal, it offers lighter resistance, but as you continue to press, the resistance increases, just as on an acoustic piano. The damper pedal can also accurately express the unique sound decay when half-pedaling.
Built-In Audio/MIDI Recorder
The LX-15's built-in recorder lets you capture your performances as audio and/or MIDI data â€” a convenient feature for pianists, as well as students who want to evaluate their playing afterward. Recorded audio data can be saved onto USB Memory, and copied to an external computer for making audio CDs or for uploading to the Internet. *USB memory is required for audio recording.
