Since its release one year ago, the Roland V-Piano has taken the music world by storm. Soaring beyond the limits of previous sample-based instruments, the V-Piano's revolutionary Component Object Sound Modeling creates "living" piano engine that has won acclaim from the world's finest pianists.
The V-Piano offers two distinct types of piano modeling: Vintage and Vanguard. Vintage replicates the sound of the world's finest acoustic pianos, while Vanguard allows the pianist to create new and innovative instruments beyond the limitations of the traditional acoustic piano.
The V-Piano Evolution adds two new instruments to each piano category. In the Vintage category, Vertical faithfully reproduces the sound of a warm upright piano, and V1 Impactance features a Vintage 1 piano equipped with heavier hammers for more power and energy. In the Vanguard category, Triple Large features an extended piano body and tripled copper wrapped strings on each key, while Metallic SB is a based on the previous All Silver model. With a new virtual soundboard made of thin metal boards sandwiched between thin wooden boards, the Metallic SB piano sound creates a unique metallic tonal character.
Pricing and Availability:
The V-Piano Evolution will be available as a downloadable upgrade for all V-Piano owners.
Meh... I wouldn't buy anything from Roland, since their update policies suck. If a Roland product has a serious bug, you will have to wait over 2 years for it to be fixed. This applies to ALL Roland products. 2-3 years before bugs are ironed out.

Huh? I've updated my Fantom a couple times to add new features. Seems like they come out with updates pretty often and I've not encountered any bugs.
