New Models Feature SuperNATURAL Piano and Acoustic Projection Sound Systems

Los Angeles, CA, January 19, 2012 — Roland is proud to announce the HP500 series, the latest additions to its industry-leading lineup of  cabinet-style digital pianos. Equipped with Roland’s acclaimed  SuperNATURAL® Piano sound engine and the all-new Acoustic Projection  sound system, the HP500 series offers serious players superior  touch and tone in convenient, space-saving instruments for the home.

SuperNATURAL  Piano has received accolades from pianists everywhere for its amazingly  realistic grand piano sound, which provides organic variations in tone  throughout  the entire dynamic range, notes that fade naturally, and  three-dimensional sound and response. You can also play classical  masterpieces using newly added authentic fortepiano tones they were  written for.

To  compliment the SuperNATURAL Piano engine in the HP507 and HP505, Roland  has recently developed the Acoustic Projection sound system. Derived  from the impressive  multi-channel sound technology found in the V-Piano® Grand, the  Acoustic Projection system delivers a rich, multi-dimensional sound  field that recreates the vibrant and enveloping experience of playing an  acoustic grand piano.

The  HP500 series includes many premium features that further enhance the  playing experience, including Roland’s renowned Ivory Feel keyboard and a  progressive damper  action pedal. All models offer a LCD and intuitive panel layout for  user-friendly operation, as well as onboard three-track recording and  audio recording/playback with optional USB flash memory. Flexible audio  playback controls such as Center Cancel, transpose,  and tempo change are perfect for practice and playing along fun.

The  top-of-the-line HP507 has a six-channel Acoustic Projection system  onboard, and is equipped with PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with  Escapement for the ultimate  grand piano touch and feel. The HP505 comes with a four-channel  Acoustic Projection system, as well as the PHA III. Both models are  available in Simulated Rosewood, Satin Black, or Polished Ebony  finishes.

The  entry-level HP503 offers the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, along  with the Ivory Feel-S keyboard with Escapement, as well as the Progressive  Damper Action Pedal.  The HP503 is available in Simulated Rosewood or Satin Black finishes.   

The HP500 Series Digital Pianos are expected be available in April 2012. For more information, visit www.RolandConnect.com.
