The Roland F-140R is a compact digital piano with contemporary cabinet styling, built-in speakers, 3D Headphone effects, Bluetooth support, and Roland’s advanced SuperNATURAL piano modeling and PHA-4 hammer-action keyboard with ivory feelWhite or Black finish
Not only does Roland make digital pianos to suit every budget, but also to suit various age groups and lifestyles. The F-140R is primarily (but not solely) built for young adults living a modern lifestyle in smaller apartments (or even dorm rooms), who are no less discerning than their elder counterparts. Housed in a compact, contemporary-styled cabinet, the F-140R comes loaded with Roland’s innovative piano modeling technology and progressive hammer-action keyboards with reel ivory feel. Not only will you experience an authentic, expressive piano sound that’s nothing short of remarkable for such a compact and affordable instrument. To immerse you in music, whether in reality-space or virtual space, the F-140R’s built-in stereo speakers project rich, full sound, while the Headphones 3D Ambience effect completely immerses you in your performance during private practice. Onboard rhythm accompaniments add a heightened experience, giving you control of a backing band that automatically follows the chords you play. With onboard recording and Bluetooth connectivity, the F-140R can help improve your playing and composition via music score apps and a USB port to access a computer DAW. If music figures prominently in your lifestyle, the Roland F-140R should occupy a place of honor in your home.
Diminutive cabinet, prodigious sound
If you live in an apartment and want to bring a quality piano into your life, the F-140R is for you. Roland’s acclaimed sound, action, and technology features deliver premium piano performance in a size that fits easily in tight spaces. The F-140R’s understated-yet-elegant look is ideal for modern living, and your choice of white or contemporary black finishes allow you to perfectly match the instrument to your style and decor. Functioning as a music rest when open, the F-140R’s unique lid design closes to completely cover the keyboard, providing a low-profile appearance when the piano is not in use.
With superior build quality and innovative technology that far exceeds other instruments in its price class, the F-140R is a serious musical instrument that will last you through years of musical growth and piano enjoyment. Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine delivers the rich, complex sound of an acoustic grand, providing a truly authentic and immersive playing experience. The PHA-4 Standard Keyboard inherits the Progressive Hammer Action and Ivory Feel texture of keyboards found in our high-end pianos, and includes advanced sensing technology to take full advantage of SuperNATURAL Piano’s enormous tonal range.
When we say that a digital keyboard can satisfy both amateur and professional, we’re not just talking about sound quality. As any classical pianist will tell you, escapement, s an essential feature that without it, would disqualify a digital piano as an option.
Escapement, also known as “let-off,” is what allows the hammer to be released (escape) after it strikes the string, even if the key is still depressed. Without this “single escapement,” the hammer would be held against the string (muting its vibrations) for as long as the key was depressed. What’s unique about the escapement is the feel it has when you press a key. It has a specific “clicking” feel when a key is depressed about halfway down, which is an integral characteristic of acoustic piano action.
The escapement action and clicking feel, typically found only on high-end digital pianos, is a feature found all Roland digital pianos, regardless of price point, which makes the F-140R that much more of an incredible value—and enables experienced pianists to seamlessly transition from acoustic to Roland digital pianos, and conversely, students who learned on digital pianos to play acoustic pianos without having to alter their technique.
With its onboard rhythm function, the F-140R gives you the ability to play and practice music along with a beautiful backing ensemble. The rhythms are incredibly easy to use, providing intelligent backing that automatically follows the chords you play. 72 different rhythm styles cover a diverse variety of musical genres, from rock and jazz to Latin, reggae, modern electronic styles, and many others. In addition to the fun of practicing and performing with a full-band sound, the rhythms help build your timing skills in a way that’s far more engaging than the standard metronome function. Playing with rhythms also offers a great opportunity to explore making music with the F-140R’s generous selection of non-piano sounds, such as organ, guitar, brass, synths, and more.
The way people learn the piano is changing thanks to smartphones and tablets. Whether you order your music scores from an online store like Sheet Music Direct, or you prefer a more advanced approach, the F-140R fits around the way you like to play. Using iOS apps like PiaScore gives free access to over 70,000 classical music scoresand by pressing the piano’s pedal you can even turn the pages of the score on your iPad/iPhone screen.
The powerful digital technologies inside the F-140R make it simple to bring the joy of music into your busy life. A digital piano never needs tuning, eliminating the annual costs that come with regular maintenance for an acoustic piano, which can have up to 1,200 parts, 17-30 tons of pressure on a soundboard, and weigh anywhere from 500 to 1,000 lbs. Plus, an acoustic piano only has one volume setting. With the F-140R you can easily adjust the volume of the piano’s speakers, an essential feature for apartment living. Another major benefit of a digital piano is the ability to turn off the speakers entirely and use headphones to play anytime without disturbing others; the F-140R’s unique Headphones 3D Ambience effect greatly enriches the piano experience during these private sessions, making it feel as though the sound is emanating from the instrument itself. The F-140R also includes numerous digital convenience features for practice and fun, such as a built-in metronome, a recorder for capturing and sharing performances, computer connectivity via USB, and a Twin Piano mode that splits the keyboard so that two people can play side by side in the same range.
