The Roland FP-10 is a portable, entry-level 88-key digital piano with Roland’s cutting-edge SuperNATURAL piano modeling engine, PHA-4 hammer-action keyboard, Bluetooth support, and educational features
Everyone has to start somewhere, but when it comes to a musical instrument, the better the instrument, the more likely it is that you will stick with it and develop good technique. Generally, you have to compromise affordability with playability, but not with the FP-10, Roland’s most affordable and compact 88-key piano. The FP-10 stands apart from all other digital piano in its class as well many others well above its price point thanks to Roland’s flagship SuperNATURAL piano modeling sound engine and the exceptional touch provided by the PHA-4 hammer-action keyboard. With its portable, space-saving design, the FP-10 is the ideal instrument for home use, whether you’re practicing techniques in the spare room or giving performances in the living room. Plus, with Bluetooth® connectivity and powerful onboard features not offered by any other digital model at this price, the FP-10 is a great starter piano or the ideal second piano for more experienced players.
Expressive capabilities with PHA-4 keyboard and progressive-action pedals
From beginners to seasoned performers, the FP-10’s PHA-4 Standard keyboard brings out the best in your playing. And with fast-key repetition and high-resolution sensing, this responsive keyboard was designed to satisfy the most demanding pianists—so you won’t need to upgrade as your technique improves. The keys even replicate the look and feel of real ebony and ivory, and their textured, moisture-absorbing properties mean your fingers won’t slide off.
No stranger to innovation, starting with the world’s first touch-sensitive electronic piano in 1974, and the first to offer the ability to bend audio with VariPhrase technology in 2,000, Roland has been racking up the firsts ever since. The latest being their SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology, which offers unlimited polyphony and supremely realistic piano sound brought to life by the expressive touch of the PHA-4 keyboard. The combination of these advances provides a playing experience that will satisfy all, from beginner to accomplished pianist.
There’s no doubt that a great sound makes you play better. That’s why Roland engineers chose to refine modeling technology oversampling. The FP-10’s SuperNATURAL technology captures the essence of an acoustic piano in every note. Unlike sample-based digital pianos, Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology replicates the entire sound creation process of an acoustic piano—including the combination of notes played, their resonance, and the interaction between myriad elements—for a rich, complex sound that responds to your touch.
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 FP-10 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.
Bursting with modern digital features, the FP-10 makes your playing sessions fun and productive. You can get creative in any musical genre with onboard sounds including organ, electric pianos and strings. You’ll tighten your timing with the onboard metronome and learn faster with the Twin Piano Mode that lets learner and teacher sit side-by-side and play in the same key range. Plus, with Bluetooth* and MIDI connectivity, you can connect with a world of Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) and apps ranging from Apple GarageBand to Roland’s Piano Partner 2**.
*The Bluetooth feature may not be available, depending on the country where the product is purchased
*Rhythm function is not available on Piano Partner 2
