Roland introduces two new digital pianos: DP990F/DP990RF


-->

Roland DP990F digital pianoBuilding on the DP990R digital piano launched this time last year, Roland has introduced two new digital pianos — the DP990F and DP990RF.

At-a-glance features include Roland’s SuperNATURAL piano engine for enhanced audio authenticity and sophistication, 337 onboard tones, the PHA II piano feel with escapement, twin-piano keyboard splitting feature, and cabinet with closable lid available in several finishes.

The DP990F features the standard PHA II keyboard while the DP990RF has “Ivory Feel”.

Cabinet finishes include medium cherry, satin black, and reflective polished ebony.

SuperNATURAL

Three key elements are dramatically improved: velocity response, note decay, and key-range behaviour. Where previous sample-based technology created coarse “stair-step” gaps in velocity and key range, and unnatural looping in note decay, SuperNATURAL bridges the gaps with perfectly smooth and natural three-dimensional sound and response.

PHA II

The DP990F is equipped with Roland’s acclaimed PHA II keyboard with Escapement. The DP990RF model features a PHA II keyboard with Escapement plus Ivory-Feel keys. The keyboard yields a heavier touch in the lower range and lighter touch in the upper, providing lighter resistance for pianissimo passages and stronger resistance for fortissimo. The escapement architecture of the DP keys reproduces the characteristic “click feel” of a grand piano for the ultimate in realistic performance and expression. The DP990RF’s Ivory-Feel key material provides a moisture-absorbent, secure touch.

Roland DP990F/DP990RF Additional Features

Other features include USB compatibility, a range of play-along songs, and dual headphone outputs which can be assigned separately to the two keyboard zones if desired.
