Roland Digital Piano HP307
Roland Digital Piano HP307 takes a giant leap forward with the advent of Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, a breakthrough technology that offers unprecedented sound, response, and feel. The piano tone changes seamlessly and naturally based on touch and key range, with perfectly smooth decay.
This digital piano is equipped with a PHA III keyboard, which delivers enhanced expression and superior rapid keystroke performance. The combination of PHA III and SuperNATURAL Piano faithfully translates every nuance into accurate, natural sound. The HP307 is available in 3 colours, the elegant polished ebony finish, traditional rosewood finish, or the cool satin black finish. The innovative Individual Twin Piano feature allows side by side practice or performance. The three-track recorder enables you to record your performance and will also be a great help when practicing right or left hand parts individually.
Expressivity in every single key
Each of the 88 notes on a grand piano has its own character, due to the fact that the strings are different sizes and lengths, use different materials, and are struck by hammers of different sizes. These differences create variations in the tone colour and resonance of each note. For the new SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, Roland sampled all 88 notes of a variety of world-class pianos and used its unique digital technology to faithfully reproduce the full, rich tone and expressivity of the world’s finest pianos.
Expressivity according to the player’s touch
Pianos produce differences not only in volume, but also subtle variations in tone colour, depending on how forcefully the key is struck. Using Roland’s latest technology, the SuperNATURAL piano sound engine delivers natural and seamless changes in tone colour in response to the player’s touch. Its expanded dynamic range supports the most advanced and subtle techniques, just as one would expect in an acoustic grand piano.
Expressivity of decaying sounds
The natural decay of notes and beautiful lingering tones are important elements of a piano’s sound. The decaying sound of an acoustic piano not only decreases in volume, but also gradually changes in colour to a softer tone. The SuperNATURAL piano sound engine replicates this natural decay, just as in an acoustic grand.
