Compact and Stylish Instruments with Premium Piano Features
Los Angeles, CA, January 15, 2014 — Roland is pleased to introduce the DP-90Se and DP-90e, two new digital pianos that offer premium features in compact and stylish upright designs for the home. With top-level musical performance provided by Roland’s latest piano technologies, the DP-90 series is an ideal choice for anyone looking for a fashionable, space-saving instrument with no compromises in sound or playability.
Streamlined and handsome, the DP-90Se and DP-90e are a perfect fit in any home, including smaller spaces such as apartments and condos. Available in Polished Ebony or Polished White finishes, the DP-90Se provides a striking appearance that echoes the majestic elegance of a fine acoustic grand, while the DP-90e’s Contemporary Black finish offers a more understated look that blends nicely with modern living spaces.
Thanks to Roland’s advanced SuperNATURAL® Piano technology, the DP-90 series delivers the dynamic, complex sound of an authentic acoustic grand with stunning accuracy. Recent developments to further enhance the piano experience include a new upright instrument tone, a Dynamic Harmonic function for fortissimo playing, and Individual Note Voicing to customize the piano’s sound to suit the user’s playing style or home environment.
The new PHA-4 Concert (DP-90Se) and Premium (DP-90e) keyboards include Roland’s latest touch-detection technology and escapement mechanism, offering a magnificent touch that allows players to deeply explore SuperNATURAL Piano’s expansive tonal range. In addition, the keys are finished with specially developed materials that provide the natural texture and tactile sensation of real ivory and ebony keys on an acoustic grand. The PHA-4’s hammer-action mechanism also produces less audible noise than previous designs, a welcome feature for not disturbing others while practicing with headphones.
The DP-90Se and DP-90e provide a rich, resonant sound experience with their onboard audio systems, which feature large speakers built into the pianos’ integrated stands. With the unique new Headphones 3D Ambience effect, users can enjoy the spacious sound field of an acoustic piano while playing with headphones during private practice sessions.
Useful features for daily practice include a large onboard song library and a built-in recorder that allows users to share their music via optional USB flash memory. With the convenient Volume Limit function, parents can preset a maximum volume so their kids don’t play loud sounds unexpectedly. In addition, the headphones volume can be set independently from the main volume, and two jack types are provided to support a variety of headphones.
The DP-90 series is compatible with Roland’s free piano apps for Apple iOS devices, which offer a unique way to motivate a child’s interest in playing and practice. With the Air Performer app, they can play along with favorite songs in the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch wirelessly through the piano’s sound system via Roland Wireless Connect (optional). The Piano Partner app for iPad includes Flash Card, an interactive music program that kids will love, plus an intuitive graphical interface for selecting tones and songs in the DP-90Se and DP-90e. Piano Partner also features DigiScore Lite, which displays the piano’s built-in songs as sheet music on the iPad.
