Roland Updates V-Piano

Four New Pianos      06/04/10

I was lucky enough to see and film Roland's flagship V-Piano when it was released, and it was seriously impressive.

The level of detail in the physical modelling was amazing, and it really did seem like the possibilities to recreate both existing and almost 'fantasy' theoretical pianos could finally be realised.

So it's good news that Roland have continued the development of those piano models, and have released 4 New instruments, downloadable now to existing V-Piano users.

This is what they say about it...

Roland is pleased to announce the V-Piano® Evolution System Program Update, which adds two new stunning Vintage and Vanguard piano models to enhance the sonic possibilities for the groundbreaking V-Piano.

Since its release, 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 a “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 warm sound of an 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 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.

The V-Piano Evolution is now available as a downloadable upgrade for all V-Piano owners. For more information on the V-Piano, please visit:
