V-Piano

THE PIANO REDEFINED

Since 1972, Roland has pioneered many groundbreaking technologies and “world’s first” products. In recent decades, no family of Roland instruments has won more respect and acclaim than the revolutionary “V” series: V-Accordion, V-Bass, V-Drums, V-Guitar, and V-Synth. Today, Roland proudly announces the next chapter in the V legacy…the V-Piano. Throw away all preconceived notions of what a digital piano was and is. This instrument changes everything.

Four New Pianos Onboard
Roland’s groundbreaking V-Piano has won acclaim from the world’s finest pianists. With its innovative approach to digital-piano synthesis, the V-Piano soars beyond the limits of previous sample-based instruments. Today, a new V-Piano System Program Upgrade adds four new piano models to the feature set.

Description

FEATURE

  • Revolutionary “living” piano core that breaks the digital-sampling barrier in a stand-alone instrument
  • Stunning pianos onboard, from grand-piano classics to never-before-heard futuristic hybrids
  • All pianos are customizable
  • Newly-developed 88-note PHA-III Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement
  • Analog (XLR and 1/4”) outputs, digital output (coaxial), USB Memory port and MIDI I/O

Breaking Barriers

The V-Piano soars above the limitations of past technologies with its revolutionary “living” piano core, allowing every note to respond and evolve naturally, seamlessly, and perfectly without requiring samples. With the V-Piano, there is no velocity switching, and it provides a smooth, natural decay that must be heard to be believed.

Create Your Dream Collection

With the V-Piano, you can choose from beautifully crafted vintage grand-piano presets or you can create your own custom dream collection. Vary the hardness of the virtual hammer felts. Experiment with exotic string configurations and tunings. Put a world-famous grand under your fingertips or play a futuristic piano that has never been heard before.

New PHA-III Ivory Feel Keyboard

Even the most demanding pianist will appreciate the V-Piano’s new PHA-III Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement. This advanced keyboard technology reproduces the real feel of ivory for the natural keys and ebony for the sharps, and provides a true grand-piano touch and response. Even the subtle click feel when the “hammer” is released from the key (escapement) is reproduced.

Friendly Complexity

High technology doesn’t have to equate to high complexity for the pianist. With its clean control panel and logically designed user interface, the V-Piano is amazingly fast and friendly to navigate. Even deep-level editing is easy to access and understand. You’ll be customizing and creating new sounds within minutes of first touching the instrument.

The V-Piano Evolution system upgrade adds four new piano models

The V-Piano Evolution newly adds two Vintage Type piano models: Vertical (warm upright-piano model), V1 “Impactance” (Vintage 1 piano equipped with heavier hammers for more power and energy), and two Vanguard Type: Triple Large (featuring triple copper-wrapped strings for each key with a newlyextended piano body), and Metallic SB (based on the previous “All Silver” model with a new virtual soundboard made of thin metal boards sandwiched between thin wooden boards for a unique metallic tonal character). For the V-Piano owners, the System updater is downloadable from the Downloads page.
