New Home Pianos Offer DigiScore Interactive Learning and Pro Performance

Roland U.S. is pleased to announce the HPi-7F and HPi-6F Digital Interactive Pianos. Equipped with Roland's acclaimed SuperNATURAL® Piano sound engine, PHA Ivory Feel keyboards, and interactive DigiScore® training programs, these instruments bring the joy of playing and learning the piano to any home.

Incorporating core technology from Roland's award-winning V-Piano®, the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine in the HPi-7F and HPi-6F provides a superior playing experience with smooth and natural three-dimensional sound and ultimate expressivity. The PHA III (HPi-7F) and PHA II (HPi-6F) Ivory Feel keyboards offer maximum comfort, playability, and response, with keys made from a comfortable and realistic moisture-absorbent material that prevents slipping from perspiration during performance.

The DigiScore feature makes learning the piano fun, displaying digital sheet music and interactive lessons on a large LCD (HPi-7F: 10.4", HPi-6F: 7") that is built directly into the music rest. Students can sharpen their skills with onboard visual lessons and exercises, and play along with a graphical metronome and an onscreen keyboard. Newly added finger training graphically displays finger strength with well-known Hanon exercises, a useful tool for players of all levels. DigiScore also offers a multitude of friendly, interactive musical training games that are great fun for children and adults alike.

With the built-in microphone input*, users can even plug in a vocal mic and sing along through the onboard speaker system. To enhance the singing experience, karaoke-style lyrics are shown on the DigiScore display when one of the built-in songs or SMF music files with lyrics are played, and onboard effects such as echo and real time vocal harmony* can be added.

The new HPi-7F also includes an auto-accompaniment engine, where players can create full musical accompaniment in a variety of music styles simply by playing one or two notes with the left hand. Add Roland's optional CD-01A CD drive, and musical performances can be burned instantly to CD for lesson practice or recital recordings.

These new HPi series pianos are as visually attractive as they sound, with beautiful wood cabinets available in either Satin Black or Rosewood. The music stop is equipped with handsome brass music clips, while the three-piece pedal unit and front legs provide a classic traditional look.

The HPi7-F and HPi-6F Digital Interactive Pianos are expected to be available in November.
