WNAMM13: New Stage Piano From Roland


Stage pianos are usually heavy to carry and awkward to transport – hard work when you play regular gigs. Roland believes that the RD-64 is the solution: a pro-spec stage piano with 64-note weighted-action keys, weighing in at around 13Kg.

A spokesperson told us, "You also get Roland's sublime Ivory Feel-G keyboard action and SuperNATURAL Piano engine for authentic, playable acoustic piano sounds. It's all topped off with even more SuperNATURAL-based vintage EPs, plus essential clav and organ tones. The RD-64 is also a flexible MIDI master keyboard, with one-touch setup that unlocks the SuperNATURAL sound potential when used with the INTEGRA-7 sound module or JUPITER-80/-50 synths."


  • Compact, weighted-action 64-note stage piano.
  • SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine with authentic, expressive acoustic piano sounds.
  • Vintage electric pianos modelled with extraordinary accuracy.
  • 12 versatile tones onboard, including clav and organ sounds.
  • 64-note Ivory Feel-G Keyboard with Escapement for a pro-quality piano touch
  • Streamlined, light design that's easy to carry.
  • Two-band EQ and reverb, plus two multi-effects (EFX 1, EFX 2) for each tone category.
  • Controller mode provides MIDI master keyboard functionality, including a dedicated, one-touch setup for controlling SuperNATURAL tones in the INTEGRA-7 sound module and JUPITER-80 / JUPITER-50 synthesizers (When the RD-64 is used in Controller mode, the onboard tones are not available).
  • Pitch bend/mod lever and D-BEAM
  • iPad compatibility via Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit.

I think this might be pretty cool. Simple, light, and functional. What's not to like?

The PRICE!!! At $999.99 your paying the same price as their A-88. Great controller, but no thanks Roland.

It can't be that much, can it? I'm borrowing their RD-88 (it's great btw), it's full size and it's a hundred bucks less. Mind you, there's no sounds, but it's basically the same instrument otherwise. Weeeird.
