WNAMM11: New Roland Stage Piano


Roland has introduced the RD-300NX Digital Stage Piano, which they tell us is the latest and most affordable member of its popular RD series stage piano lineup. Here's their press release with all the details...
With a state-of-the-art stage piano that boasts an advanced SuperNATURAL® Piano sound engine, electric piano sounds based on SuperNATURAL technology, a newly developed Ivory Feel-G keyboard with Escapement, and a unique Sound Focus feature, the RD-300NX offers players of all levels superior digital piano performance at a breakthrough price.
The new innovative Sound Focus feature of the RD-300NX ensures that every note will be heard, even subtle pianissimo passages. Based on SuperNATURAL phase-correction technology, this essential feature ensures that the RD-300NX won't get lost in the mix, penetrating through walls of sound without compressing or coloring the tone. Players can relax and play naturally, achieving presence onstage without sacrificing dynamics and sound quality.
Lightweight and portable, the RD-300NX is perfect for both students and gigging musicians. At the heart of the RD-300NX is Roland's SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, which provides a stellar grand piano playing experience with seamless variations in tone from pianissimo to fortissimo, notes that fade naturally without looping, and an organic sound and response.
Also onboard the RD-300NX are two types of SuperNATURAL technology-based electric piano sounds, giving players incredibly realistic emulations of classic EPs. The unique Piano Designer feature allows users to easily customize both acoustic sounds via an easy-to-use interface.
For an authentic grand piano feel, the RD-300NX is equipped with Roland's new Ivory Feel-G Keyboard with Escapement. This keyboard offers maximum comfort, playability, and response, and perfectly conveys dynamic velocity-based tonal changes as well as rapid key strikes. The keys also feature Roland's acclaimed Ivory Feel, a comfortable and realistic moisture-absorbent material that prevents slipping from perspiration during performance.
The RD-300NX sports a bright LCD display for high visibility even in low light conditions. The popular One Touch Piano feature found in other RD-series instruments is also onboard the RD-300NX, providing players instant access to acoustic and electric pianos with the touch of a button. In addition to its stunning piano voices, the RD-300NX is filled with additional pro sounds for performance versatility, including organs, strings, synths, rhythm sets, and more.
Audio files can be instantly played back via USB memory on the RD-300NX. It also comes with a DP-10 Damper Pedal; the optional RPU-3 Triple Pedal is available for players that desire a true grand piano pedaling experience.
