Roland has officially introduced the RD-700NX, a stage piano packed with features for gigging keyboard players, including:
On board the RD-700NX are three grand pianos (with 30 variations), all driven by the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine. The RD-700NX is also equipped with E. Piano sounds based on SuperNATURAL technology which offers accurate models of various classic electric pianos from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
For a true grand piano playing feel, the RD-700NX is fitted with the PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with escapement. This keyboard action is designed to draw the maximum expressivity out of both SuperNATURAL Piano and E. Piano sounds. Additionally, the keys feature Roland's Ivory Feel, a comfortable and realistic moisture-absorbent material that prevents slipping during performance.
For musicians playing in large groups, the new Sound Focus feature ensures the RD-700NX cuts through dense mixes. Combined with SuperNATURAL technology, Sound Focus provides presence without sacrificing any essential expressivity.
A New One Touch Piano feature provides instant access to three acoustic pianos and three E. Pianos with the touch of a button.
In addition to Roland's finest acoustic and electric piano sounds, the RD-700NX is filled with hundreds of additional sounds for performance versatility, including organs, strings, synths, rhythm sets, and more. Navigating the vast library and editing sounds is easy with the new high-resolution display, which provides clear visibility and an intuitive graphic interface.
Pricing and Availability
The RD-700NX is expected to be available in November, with a list price of $2,999.
