        A New Level of Piano Performance at Home

        The FP-50's authentic piano sound and touch provides top-level performance for playing all musical genres, from classical and jazz to rock and pop. Roland's SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine faithfully replicates the unmatched tone color and expressiveness of the finest acoustic grand pianos, delivering seamless velocity response, natural tone decay, and authentic key-range behavior. Supreme playability comes from the Ivory Feel-G Keyboard with Escapement, which inherits the functions, appearance, and texture of keyboards found in our flagship pianos. At an affordable price, the stylish FP-50 offers sound, touch, and expressiveness rivaling that of high-end instruments.

In addition to premium acoustic pianos, it's filled with a large selection of stage-ready sounds, including SuperNATURAL-based classic EPs, essential organ tones, strings, modern synths, and more. Stereo outputs let you connect to an external amplification system, while the built-in speakers help you monitor your performance while on stage. The intelligent rhythm feature gives you control of an entire onboard backing band for solo performing, with automatic accompaniment that follows whatever you play on the keyboard.

        Digital Advantages for Developing Piano Skills

        The FP-50's digital technology offers many great benefits that enhance your piano practice sessions. You can turn off the built-in speakers and play privately using headphones, allowing you to practice day or night without disturbing family members or neighbors. Rhythm accompaniments assist you in developing timing and groove, and the wide selection of music styles help expand your versatility. Via optional USB memory, you can play along with WAV audio files using various playback options such as key transposition, tempo adjustment, and Center Cancel, and record your performances as audio data for composing or self-evaluation. SMF songs can be played from USB memory as well.

        Fun Air Performer App for iOS Devices

        Extend your piano enjoyment with Roland Wireless Connect and the free Air Performer app, which lets you play along with your favorite songs in your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch through the FP-50's sound system.

        Roland FP50 review by Staff member Justin Myerscough

        The Roland FP50 has dramatically improved compared to its predecessors like Roland FP4F FP2 FP3 particularly in the following areas :

        1 FP50 WEIGHT + DIMENSIONS- 16.5 kg width 1343mm or just under 53 inches ( less than rd300 )

        2 - PIANO SOUND + TOUCH - latest super natural Piano Sample and lovely Ivory feel keyboard

        3 - SPEAKERS - built in speakers on products like this are typically poor given that the manufacturer is trying not to add to the size and weight but the Roland FP50 has obviously benefitted from advances in speaker design because even though youcant even see the speakers its a surprisingly full range sound with good definition and pretty good volume .

        4 - STAGE PIANO - Although not officially a stage piano theres no reason that it cant be great at that job with the added benefit of the speakers which could be used for practice purposes or even monitoring at a small gig, I think I would go for this rather than the RD300 myself and save a few pounds in the process !

        5 - BACKING STYLES - The quality of these accompaniment styles is much improved , many of them taken from products like ROLAND Bk5 or BK7M , they can be played keyboard style with a split point or piano style where the whole area of the piano is used for chord recognition, When you press the rhythm button it automatically recognises the chords you play unlike the previous models where they automatically did a set chord progression and you had to go through the menu to change it
