Roland HP702 & HP704 Digital Piano Demo Video

hello I’m Tony from Bonners music and
this is my bias guide for the brand-new
roland HP 702 and HP 704 digital pianos
so both of these waters feature the same
technology inside them so that means
they’ve got the same piano sounds and
they have the same recording features
the same bluetooth features those kinds
of things however there are some quite
big differences first one being that the
keyboard action on the HP 704 is a
different keyboard to that on the 702
and we’ll come to that a little bit
later in more detail and also the
speaker system on the HP 704 is more
powerful and it has more speakers so you
get a much bigger sound with the 704
even at lower volume you feel that the
sound is kind of immersing you when
you’re playing so those are the two main
differences between the two models but
let’s start with some playing and we’re
going to jump straight in with the
classical piano sound
so as you could hear it’s a really
beautiful piano sound and it’s very
expressive and it sounds beautiful in
all registers of the of the piano
keyboard and I must say that I was
really pleasantly surprised when I first
sat down and played these pianos
normally when a new lower range or
mid-range model comes out it’s not so
exciting for those of us who work in the
business all the time but I must say
that the sound of these instruments
really is fantastic and it must also be
said that they both actually sound the
same when you’re playing through
headphones the speaker systems are
different so when you’re playing
normally through their speakers then of
course they do sound different but
through headphones both instruments will
sound exactly the same
so Roland have developed a process
called supernatural piano modeling to
create the piano sound and these piano
sounds are a combination of a recording
of a real piano and computer-generated
sound as well and the the mixture of the
two techniques actually gives you a very
warm sound when you’re playing gently so
as a warm mellow sound and then as you
play harder the sound kind of opens up
and it becomes much wider and it’s a
very natural sounding piano and it
behaves in the way that a traditional
acoustic piano would so as well as a
really good piano sound what’s very very
important when you’re choosing a digital
piano is that you get a piano that feels
right for your type of playing now if
you’re a beginner then you may need some
help choosing which is the right
instrument for you and you can do that
as shop like Bonners because we have all
the models from all the manufacturers on
display under one roof we’ve got two
locations ones in Eastbourne in East
Sussex and the other one is in Reigate
in Surrey just off of Junction eight of
the m25 motorway and you’re very welcome
to come along and you can play all the
different pianos and the different
manufacturers to make sure you’re buying
the right piano for your needs
so like I said the first big difference
between both models is the actual
keyboard itself the HP 702 which we have
sitting here in the Rosewood finish that
has Roland’s pha-4 keyboard action
fitted now that’s a plastic keyboard
action it’s fully weighted and it’s
slightly heavier at the bottom is
slightly lighter at the top as you would
find with a traditional acoustic piano
but the HP 704 has Roland’s PHA 50
keyboard action now this particular
keyboard action is a combination of wood
and synthetic materials so the sides of
the key are actually made of wood but
the core of the key itself is actually
made of synthetic material and the
combination of the two give the feel of
a traditional acoustic piano key but the
synthetic materials mean that it’s a lot
more durable and in fact Roland give a
10 year warranty with all of their HP
series digital pianos and I think that
just goes to show how confident Roland
are in the quality of their workmanship
so the pH 850 keyboard action or which
is on the HP 704 here it just feels a
little bit more definite it’s a little
bit more resistance behind it when you
compare it with the HP 702 so from a
long-term playing ability point of view
the 704 should last you a little bit
longer in terms of if you were doing
piano grades for instance I think that
you would be able to get a little bit
further using an HP 704 as compared to
the HP 702 but then of course there is a
price difference between the two as well
but if you’re just looking at it from a
play playability issue then the HP 704
certainly to me feels more like in a
traditional acoustic piano and it does
feel very very nice to play so as you’ve
heard from the different pieces of music
I’ve been playing there are actually
different piano sounds built into these
models which work for different styles
of piano music so finally I’m going to
choose the bright piano sound and this
is better for most
rock and pop type tunes
so now what I’m going to do is just
highlight some of the other differences
between the two models so first of all
as you can see the design of the cabinet
of the HP 704 is taller now that is to
accommodate the extra speakers that are
inside but also it gives it a little bit
more presence and when you’re sitting in
front of it you feel more like you’re
playing a piano than with some of the
smaller pianos that are on the market
both instruments have what Roland called
a classic position lid so they’ve got
this sliding key cover but what is nice
because the control panel is in front of
you rather than being on the end which
you get with some other models of
digital piano from different
manufacturers but because the panel is
here it means that you can close the lid
just to the first position and it hides
all of the controls so to somebody who
isn’t a musician perhaps they would look
at that and think it’s a traditional
acoustic piano and then you can just
slide the lid back to reveal the control
panel and that’s one of my favorite
features which has been on Roland pianos
for many years and I really hope they
don’t ever change it because I think
it’s great it’s it’s better than having
the control panel on the far left hand
side there another difference between
the two models is the music rest on the
HP 702 it’s a fixed music rest whereas
on the 704 it has three different
positions so you can change the tilt of
the music wrist as well and the 704 also
has these metal music holders to stop
your pages from flipping over whilst
you’re playing so it’s time for a little
bit more playing now I’m going to choose
a sound from the second category of
voices on the HP 704 and this is the e
piano category and the first sound that
you’ll see in the screen it’s called
1976 suitcase now this is actually the
sound of the Fender Rhodes and it’s a
beautiful bell like piano sound it’s
equally at home playing ballads as it is
playing kind of more funky popular tunes
so I’m just going to play you the intro
to to Earth Wind and Fire tunes actually
and first of all you’ll hear it played
in it’s kind of ballad context and
for the faster tune a little bit more
percussive live you can see the same
sound works for different genres of
let’s take a look at the next sound
category which is marked as strings on
the panel now the first sound that’s in
this category is called symphonic
strings number one and this is a really
nice orchestral string sound which is
really good if you want to maybe play
some music from your favorite film so
just take a listen to this
so one of my favorite features on
digital piano’s for many years has been
the ability to layer two voices together
so we’ve heard the acoustic piano sounds
we’ve also just heard the orchestral
string sound now what I can do by
pressing both buttons together is to
layer the two sounds on top of each
other so every key is playing the sound
of the piano and the strings together so
let’s play the intro to a famous Elton
John track using a combination of piano
sound and strings layered together
another very useful feature on digital
pianos is a recording facility which
both of these models have and I like to
use this when I’m learning to play a
piece of music so my piano teacher
always taught me learn one hand first
then learn the other hand and then put
the two together so the recording
feature on these instruments allows you
to record your left hand first so let’s
do that it’s a one-button record so I
literally just press the record button
and then start playing so I’m just gonna
play my left hand and record it first of
and now I’ve recorded the left hand I
can press play and it will play back
what I’ve recorded and I can practice my
right hand independently
so as you can see the record feature is
a very useful thing especially when
you’re learning a piece of music and
anything you do record on the digital
piano you can store onto a USB memory
stick which you just plug in underneath
on the left hand side here so the HP 700
series allow you to actually have two
voices split across the keyboard and
what I mean by that is that you can have
one sound on the left a one sound on the
right just by pressing the split button
so I’m going to choose an acoustic bass
sound with a cymbal to play on the left
and in my right hand I’m going to choose
the piano sound so let’s just take a
listen to this it kind of gives you the
feel of a jazz trio with piano bass and
so Ronin were one of the first companies
to really embrace wireless Bluetooth
technology so that you can connect your
instrument directly to your favorite
tablet device now the HP 700 series are
compatible with iOS and Android devices
and Roland actually make an app called
piano everyday which allows you to
practice using the songs that are built
into the piano but it actually displays
the score on your tablet screen and you
can practice both hands independently it
tracks your progress it gives you a
score and also it gives you access to an
online sheet music store which you can
use the songs that you download from the
online sheet music store to actually
practice and learn to play the piano
it’s a really good app so I’d suggest
that if you do buy an HP 700 series you
do explore the Bluetooth connectivity
because it just makes playing the piano
more fun whether you’re a beginner or
whether you’re an experienced pianist so
that brings me to the end of my roland
HP 700 buyer’s guide I just like to say

you’d like any more information about

other instruments from different
manufacturers so please do come along to
one of Bonners stores because we do have
the best digital piano stores in the UK

the right decision when you’re investing
in the next musical instrument of
yourself or your family so like I said
thank you very much for watching and
I’ll see you in another one of my piano
demonstration movies

Roland Digital Pianos

There is nothing like playing on a Roland digital piano! The sound is so realistic, you don’t even notice that you are using a piano. It will give your performance an edge because you can play faster and more confidently.

The first piano that the world known was the Arnell piano by Ron Arnold. The Arnell digital piano has so many advantages over traditional pianos. They are lighter weight and smaller than traditional pianos. Most pianos are big and heavy, they take up a lot of room and most pianos cost a fortune.

There are also many different types of Roland digital pianos available today. There are compact pianos, classical pianos, rock pianos, and many more. Some are more suited to certain types of music, for example if you want to learn to play classical, the classical piano would be the right choice for you. But if you just want to play jazz, the rock piano is perfect for you. You will find that most of them come with a foot pedal, so when you want to change the keys, you can easily do it. The keys are made so they don’t slip and are very sturdy too.

You can buy the Roland digital piano from your local piano dealer, online, or in stores that sell electronic equipment. You will find that there are different brands of these pianos available to suit everyone’s style. Most people prefer the larger, heavy pianos. If you have limited space in your room, and you don’t like the idea of lugging around a large, heavy instrument, you might prefer a smaller, more portable digital piano.

Most digital pianos today are easy to use and tune because they have special buttons that let you do both things at the same time. The piano keys are usually made of steel, but now they are made of wood. The buttons are all made of rubber, so they don’t get stuck and they don’t rust easily.

The Roland digital piano is great for children who want to learn to play the piano. Because of its features, many piano teachers have included this piano as part of their lessons because they are great for the young ones. It is also great for the older student because they can practice without any supervision and they can make their own adjustments to it.

You can choose to purchase a full kit or just the digital piano. Either way you will get to choose which features you want to add to the piano, and where you want to place it on your home entertainment system.

This musical instrument is great for anyone to learn and enjoy playing, and it is definitely the best tool for developing your musical talent. No matter what type of music you are interested in learning, this digital piano will help you.

Roland Digital Piano Buyer’s Guide

Roland piano keyboard

There is no doubt about it, the Roland piano keyboard is among the most popular and trusted brands on the market. Realism. In both the music and the key action, Roland pianos are known for playing much like an acoustic keyboard. Many reviews praise the keyboards for having a very tight and detailed sound engine which is capable of producing rich and complex notes, and even keys that are an octave apart. These reviews also point out that these pianos have a large “resonator” effect and one that can be felt when played in a concert hall.

The lightweight design of these pianos is also praised by many. Keyboards with a light weight feel and the ability to feel the keys hit the piano keys together is said to give a more solid and realistic feel than other heavy-duty pianos. Users also praise the fact that the weight of the keyboards is extremely well-balanced, so there is little chance that it will be either too light or too heavy to play correctly. The lightness of the keyboard also means that it is easier to clean, as there is no excessive amount of dust buildup. Overall, users find the overall weight of the keyboard to be very good and recommend it highly when looking for a lightweight design.

An additional feature that is often noted as a pro is the fact that the keyboard has two levels of sustain and attack. With an ordinary acoustic piano, the strings would hit an exact spot, and the clef would not vibrate at all. With the Roland piano, however, the strings are able to vibrate at different pitches because of the variety of sustain and attack. Users also find that this feature is a great addition to a keyboard as some pianists actually prefer it. A larger range of sustain and attack is something that a keyboard can take advantage of, and with the Visonic DL-12ga you will certainly appreciate the depth of sound that it produces.

Roland 88-key digital piano

The Roland 88-key digital piano is a remarkable instrument that can do much more than play familiar piano tunes, and it has advanced sounds that set it apart from most pianos on the market today. Though it has been around for a long time, it is not widely sold due to the fact that many pianos of similar price have seen decreases in their prices. Some of these pianos are even being discounted by the manufacturer, but this does not make them any less desirable. The piano’s features include a highly mechanical system, including a fully variable-coil spring mechanism that gives each key a special sound. Another technological breakthrough in this line of instruments is the inclusion of onboard electronic drum programming that allows the user to add drum sounds, such as sampling effects, using onboard software.

Roland also has introduced a new rack mount design for their pianos that allow for the user to easily change the number of keys from seven to nine, making them much easier to handle when playing a variety of musical pieces. There is even a model that comes equipped with an “unlock” feature, allowing the user to add additional notes. There is no limit to what you can do with these pianos, which is why many professional musicians purchase them. In fact, many schools actually use these digital pianos in their classes due to the vast number of sounds they are capable of producing. They are very affordable instruments that can provide an excellent level of performance for a reasonable price, making them ideal for both the student and professional alike.

As impressive as these technologically innovative pianos are the real draw to the Roland digital piano like others is the fact that they can be taken anywhere, making them perfect for traveling performers who need a large and easy-to-store instrument. If you are looking for a digital piano like the one offered by Roland, you will need to consider the fact that they tend to cost quite a bit more than traditionally-designed instruments. But, if you have the budget for one, you will find that there are few pianos like the ones offered by Roland that can deliver the same high-quality sounds for such a low price.

Roland digital grand piano

The Roland digital Grand Piano keyboard has a number of great features that will make playing on it fun and easy to learn. First of all, it has a number of sampled percussion sounds that are pre-recorded in cymbals, drums, and other percussion instruments. They also have a number of sounds that are preset. These sounds include the classic drums rolls, Latin percussion, brass, steel pans, tambourines, and many other types of percussion instruments.

The GP609 isn’t a true hybrid digital grand piano in that its key action is nothing more than a sampled steel string and not fully wood sounding wood. Also, grand keyboard keys are generally much longer in total length than an acoustic piano and yet the Yamaha N3X and the grand pianos made by Roland are even shorter in total key size than the average acoustic piano. This makes playing the Roland digital grand pianos a joy to play and a walk in the park to boot! The keys for the digital pianos are also very comfortable due to their light weight and firmness.

Roland upright piano

Traditionally, upright pianos have languished in the shadow of the grand family pianos but now, with their low price and reliability, they’re the perfect time to take a second look at the upright piano. The main advantage of upright pianos, compared to grand pianos, is their lower cost and often they are played at home, casually commercial venues and even schools. Their versatility allows you to use them for almost any purpose under the sun. For instance, you can use an upright piano for accompaniment in a band or for solo performances and so on.

One main disadvantage of the upright piano is that they don’t have the feeling of an acoustic piano. The keys feel rough when you hit them but an acoustic piano feels warm when you touch it. Also, if you go for a good quality high-end upright piano, it will cost you a lot more than an ordinary digital piano. It’s important to note that even though the cost of the Roland is more than an ordinary digital piano, the performance is top notch. There are many models of the Roland digital piano which have onboard speakers and headphones, and you could choose one of them depending on the type of music you would like to play. Some models of the Roland also have USB MIDI keyboards, which make it very easy for you to perform with external equipment like microphones and keyboards.

You could purchase the best upright pianos either from a local store or online. An online shop will give you more options and at the same time, you won’t have to leave your home. You might also find some discount deals and offers if you shop online. It’s really important to read the reviews and get as much information about the product you’re interested in so that you could make an informed decision.

Roland FP-10 digital piano

The Roland FP-10 digital piano is a compact, full-sized digital piano that offers the PHA-4 dual-pose keyboard Hammer action, piano tones driven completely by the SuperNATURAL virtual piano engine, convenient headphones support, convenient metronome, and a large range of sampled piano sounds, all for a rather inexpensive entry-level cost. This piano is great for students, studio or performance purposes. I’ve found it to be very easy to use, with its large display and touch-sensitive keys. There is also a Graphic User Manual with a wealth of information about the different settings available for the various functions on this keyboard. While the Roland Prodigy did offer a larger keyboard with a larger display and more features, the Roland FP-10 takes this to another level.

As compared to an acoustic piano, the Roland FP-10 has a bigger and wider keyboard area, giving it a much larger number of frets. That said, I would compare the Roland FP-10 with an acoustic piano in that it feels significantly smaller, especially when holding it in your hands. The keys are made of a very soft, medium-weight keypad that responds quite quickly to touch. They are designed to work well with either one or two hands, but the keys on the front of the keyboard can also be used with either hands.

In terms of price, the keyboard falls in the medium-to-high price range. When compared with similar digital pianos in its price range, the Roland FP-10 falls right in the middle. The key-bed and case are not as thick as some higher-end models, but the response of the Roland keyboards is excellent for its price range. It comes standard with a preloaded software piano library, so you do not need to pay for a template or download one from an internet site. Overall, the Roland FP-10 Digital Piano from Roland seems like a great choice for anyone who wants to be able to play music from a computer without needing to go through the expenses of an acoustic keyboard or to buy a piano.

Roland FP-30 digital piano

If you have always dreamed of owning a classical piano at home but do not have the budget or space for an actual full-size instrument, the wait is over. The all-in-one, highly versatile Roland FP-30 digital piano is a perfect solution for those wishing to own a classical piano at home but who do not have the room for such a large instrument. The highly affordable FP-30 provides high-quality sounds, feel, and control similar to a grand. lightweight and portable, it is a perfect fit for many performing artists and music schools. The all-important thumb rest on the left hand side can be switched to play several notes at once for added versatility, while the two-on-one functionality of the keys allows you to simultaneously play two different notes simultaneously.

The Roland Digital Piano has a complete set of knobs and special keys designed to work with all types of musical software packages. These include rack-based piano rolls so that you can easily and accurately read and play your keyboard without having to physically access the keyboard. An included USB interface makes it easy to connect your keyboard and drum machines through the same interface, and a headphone jack allows you to practice without disturbing anyone else in your house or studio. With a Roland MIDI keyboard/drum set up, professional musicians can create exciting and inspiring music within the comfort of their home. This is also a great choice for beginners, as it is perfectly capable of playing classic or modern songs.

Another way to enjoy the full capabilities and sounds of your Roland FP-30 digital piano is with the inclusion of an instrument bundle. Complete with the front, back, and sides of a regular piano, along with a variety of authentic-looking drum pads, pedals, and other piano accessories, this bundle lets you take your digital piano experience to the next level. With hundreds of styles and sounds to choose from, these instrument bundles offer all kinds of musicians the chance to expand their musical horizons and express themselves with the powerful expression. Roland delivers quality instruments and high-tech piano accessories so that even the most discriminating pianist can find an instrument that meets their needs.

Roland F-140R digital piano

The Roland F-140R Digital Piano was introduced to the market in 1990 and it is considered as one of the most popular models because it uses a state of the art digital engine which is called the Roland Piano Engine. It utilizes an eight-track polyphonic sound engine that provides a great quality of sound. The piano engine contains sixteen voice models and it has been designed in such a way that it can be accessed by any user with the help of a USB cord and it has also been designed in a way that it can be programmed with user-programmed sounds. This means that there is no need for you to have some technical knowledge or experience so that you can manipulate or change the sounds on the F-140R digitally. All you need is just basic knowledge of computer software and that is all you need to play and enjoy the music with your new F-140R.

All Roland digital pianos and keyboards are engineered and created according to high standards of performance, craftsmanship and of course, style. The Roland F-140R digital piano can be used not only for studio productions but also for stage performances. When you purchase the Roland F-140R digital piano or keyboard, you can expect the following features: hi-hat rack, metronome, treble/ bass pedal, treble/midi rack, sampled keys, programmable keyboard, and touch-screen interface. Apart from those features, this keyboard is very reliable and it can play many songs by itself without the need of any external effects or overdubs. The price of this keyboard is also very affordable so that even beginner users or students can buy it without any problem.

Some of the best performance features of the Roland F-140R include Super Response System, which gives this particular model a “fat” feel. In addition to that, there is also Wave Display, which can show information about notes, chords, keys and other performance features. The onboard software provides great assistance when it comes to learning or tweaking the software. The onboard virtual piano is also very useful in practicing. The piano roll editor feature of this keyboard allows the user to edit and modify notes or keys at anytime.

  1. This keyboard has exceeded my expectations. It appears to be a high-quality piece of equipment. It had weighted buttons, a microphone input, a machine input, 1200 sounds with the ability to download more, and a plethora of editing and creation tools. This keyboard is featured in a video on my website and YouTube channel.

  2. I bought this piano to use as my upstairs piano. The action is excellent—much better than my previous Yamaha DGX-230, which had no action and a poor piano tone. As a result, I replaced it with this Roland FP-30. I gave it four stars because the sound is a little muffled, with the speakers pointed down at the player’s feet. This, however, is a minor point. The sound would most likely be enhanced if the piano were placed in a larger room. It’s in a tiny upstairs bedroom. My main instrument is a Yamaha Arius YDP-V240, which I’ve had for nearly six years and still enjoy playing. The FP-30 was bought to replace the DGX-230, and it is much superior for playing serious piano music. The DGX is a digital keyboard rather than a digital piano. Please accept my apologies if I offended any DGX-230 owners. It was a Yamaha, which is why I bought it at the time. Yamaha DGX pianos are usually excellent, but the DGX-230 fall short for me. The keys were so mushy that when played, the notes sounded uneven. I was looking for a piano with a better action and a better piano tone. The best part, in my opinion, is that the FP-30 has a USB to Device port, which is a function I adore. Some Yamaha instruments have this feature, but they don’t allow you to play the songs in order. You can only play one song at a time before having to manually progress to the next one. The FP-30 has a feature that allows all of the songs to play consecutively, which I had on my old Yamaha DGX-500 but don’t have on my Arius YDP-V240. The V-240 has a USB to Device port but no way to play songs in order. If I want to hear songs that I can’t play, I like to have piano music playing in the background.

    The lack of a display screen on the FP-30 does not bother me because I am completely blind and rely solely on physical buttons to control these pianos and keyboards. I believe Roland should have created a less clumsy configuration, since one must remember which key of the piano to push, in addition to the physical button, to choose a specific instrument voice. Again, I’m not fussed about this because more and more digital instruments are getting touchscreens and getting rid of physical buttons to control them. I desired a less complicated instrument with less buttons to control. I learned how to use the FP-30 by watching a very detailed YouTube video in which the demonstrator actually told us which buttons to press from left to right.

  3. This piano’s piano choice is very practical. There are so many mix and sound choices that I’m sure it’ll take me a while to figure out how to use them all. The piano is lovely and looks great in my living room. I’m overjoyed about it. It’s also really easy to put together. I did the majority of it myself and just required assistance in getting it upright.
