The black FP-90 from Roland is a digital piano featuring the company's flagship piano sound engine and keyboard, housed in a sleek cabinet that also includes a multi-channel speaker system with enough power for performing in intimate venues. A selected range of additional sounds that include electric pianos, strings, organs, and synths is available, allowing the keyboard to function in a variety of musical scenarios. Bluetooth audio/MIDI support allows for connecting wirelessly with Roland's Piano Partner 2, and other music apps on a smartphone or tablet.
The SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology utilized in the instrument reproduces the entire sound-creation process of an acoustic piano, including the combination of notes played, their resonance, and the way in which the piano's many elements interact with each other. The resultant complex sound, complete with overtones, changes in response to players' input, via an 88-note keyboard that blends wood and molded materials for an enhanced playing experience.
A microphone input further enhances the enjoyment that can be derived from the instrument. A harmony effect can generate automatic vocal harmonies, and with an optional USB memory stick plugged in, the piano and vocal performances can be recorded as audio data, and then transferred to a computer for sharing the occasion with everyone involved. WAV audio files, performances recorded as audio data for composing or self-evaluation, and SMF songs can all be played from the USB memory using various options.
