Roland is proud to announce the new RD-700GX/RD-300GX digital pianos. These two new powerhouses feature Roland's latest sound engine for incredible sound quality. The flagship RD-700GX leads the market with a wide variety of exquisite piano sounds, SuperNATURAL instruments and a PHA II Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement.
Both GX-series pianos are anchored by Roland's finest 88-key stereo multi-samples piano engine, with every note captured separately at a high-to-low sweep of velocity levels. Brand new super expressive piano sound-sets are provided, plus EP's and other essential instruments. Sounds can be customized and saved for instant recall.
The RD-700GX features PHA II Ivory Feel Keyboard technology which reproduces the real feel of ivory for the natural keys, and ebony for the sharps. The natural keys are designed to absorb moisture, ensuring a secure, slip-proof feel even in the hottest stage environment. The RD-300GX offers an excellent PHA alpha II weighted keyboard.
The RD-700GX also features an electric-piano sound bank derived from Roland's unique SuperNATURAL technology for unprecedented realism, expression and control.
Musician's can play audio through the RD-GX directly from a USB key. Flexible file compatibility enables playback of Standard MIDI files, WAV, AIFF, and MP3s. The "Audio Key" feature allows users to use the lowest octave for controlling start song, song length, and other parameters. Additionally players can connect directly to a PC via USB and tap into Cakewalk SONAR LE software, which comes included in every RD-GX package.
Customization is a breeze with the RD-GX series via the RD-GX Piano Designer feature which allows you to tweak Hammer Noise, Damper Resonance, Duplex Scale, etc.
It's simple to expand the already impressive onboard sound set via two optional Roland SRX expansion boards. The RD-GX series makes an excellent master controller thanks to its three MIDI outputs (RD-700GX only) and multi-zone functionality.
A new optional Keyboard Stand (KS-G8) for 88-key stage-type keyboards is now available—a perfect companion for the RD-700GX or RD-300GX digital pianos.
