Stylish and portable, the FP-80 Digital Piano brings a rich and rewarding musical experience to every piano lover. The acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine and Ivory Feel-S Keyboard deliver authentic tone and touch, while an onboard multi-channel speaker system equipped with Roland's Acoustic Projection technology envelops you with beautiful, immersive sound. The advanced rhythm feature further expands the joy of playing the piano, providing dynamic, sophisticated accompaniments that automatically follow your performances in real time. Available in attractive black or white finishes, the versatile FP-80 is perfect for a wide range of applications, including stage performing, the classroom, daily practice, and entertainment at home.

ROLAND'S PREMIER TECHNOLOGIES FOR AN AUTHENTIC PIANO EXPERIENCE AT HOME
The stylish and sophisticated FP-80 is the ideal choice for piano enjoyment in modern living spaces, offering tone, touch, and expressiveness to satisfy even the most demanding players. Roland's acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano technology powers the onboard grand piano sounds, delivering world-class performance with seamless velocity response, natural tone decay, and authentic key-range behavior. The Ivory Feel-S Keyboard with Escapement provides true grand piano feel and expressiveness, with keys that replicate the unique appearance, texture, and moisture-absorbing properties of real ivory. Incorporating four discrete speakers, the innovative Acoustic Projection sound system recreates the natural, organic sound field of an acoustic grand, filling your home with rich, beautiful tones. You'll also love the intuitive Piano Designer feature, which makes it easy to personalize the FP-80's tone and response to suit your taste.

PRO-LEVEL SOUNDS AND RHYTHM FEATURES BRING VERSATILITY FOR LIVE PLAYING
If you play on stage as a solo performer or with a band, the mobile FP-80 is a ready companion, providing authentic piano expression everywhere you go. In addition to acoustic pianos, it's filled with a large selection of premium sounds for the stage, including SuperNATURAL-based classic EPs, essential organ tones, strings, modern synths, and more. The Acoustic Projection sound system is useful for personal monitoring on large stages, and is suitable for primary amplification in intimate venues. When you play solo, the rhythm function makes your piano performances shine with beautiful and sophisticated backing. Intelligent full-keyboard chord recognition gives you complete control of your personal band, with automatic accompaniment that dutifully follows whatever you play. The convenient rear-panel jack lets you connect an external mic and sing along with your performance, and you can even add real-time harmony effects to your voice based on the chords you play.

UNIQUE DIGITAL ADVANTAGES ENHANCE MUSIC PRACTICE AND COMPOSITION
The FP-80'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. The Rhythm accompaniments help you develop your sense of timing and groove as you play along with various music styles, and the Chord Pattern function lets you play along with automatic chord sequences for practicing improvisation in different keys. 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.

HARMONY EFFECT AND AIR RECORDER FOR MORE MUSICAL FUN
The FP-80 offers a variety of ways to extend and enhance your piano enjoyment. While entertaining at home, connect a mic and encourage friends and family to sing along, and add in the harmony effect for automatic vocal harmonies that are sure to impress. Plug in a USB memory stick to record the piano and vocal performances as audio data, and then transfer the audio to a computer to share memories of the occasion with everyone involved. Using the optional Roland WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter, the FP-80 can also communicate with Apple's popular iOS devices via Roland Wireless Connect. With the free Air Recorder app, you can play along with your favorite songs stored in your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and record your performance into the app at the same time.

Novice piano player, great keyboard

By SAMUEL MCMICKLE

from Essex Fells, NJ

Comments about Roland FP-80 Digital Piano:

I am a professional drummer and have produced records, and have a fairly sensitive ear, however I am just learning piano. I actually started a while ago and lost time to practice and expand, so now I know a few fairy complicated songs songs pretty well, and can't play much else yet. I am also most interested in piano sound and realistic action, rather than some of the other options available, except EQ maybe. EQ on all of them is not as helpful as it could be, plus if you don't like the characteristics of the sound, you can't do much about that. I found the yamaha 3-band EQ to be not as helpful as I thought it would be. Anyway I bought the Roland fp-80, Yamaha P-255, a Kurzweil Sps4-8 and played the Kawai ES-7 in the store for a while. I played the ones I bought all side by side, and I went with the Roland, returned the others. Aside from the Kurzweil, the action on all these keyboards is fairly realistic. The Yamaha and Kawai look a little classier than the Roland. In my opinion the Yamaha speakers are terrible, they sound MUCH better in headphones. The Kawai and Roland are good, especially at a medium to loud volume. Still sound better in headphones. When it came down to it, I enjoyed playing the Roland, and not so much the others. I am most used to playing an old pre-war Steinway Baby-Grand, a very nice piano with a A LOT of character. I believe the Rolands sample Steinways, and maybe I'm just familiar with it, but the sound does have more character. So it's not perfect and other people have complained about certain aspects that I think give it character, like the slightly metallic sound when you hit the keys in certain places or at a certain intensity. Sounds more like a piano that doesn't "occur in a vacuum" if you know what I mean. The Yamaha to me sounded more sterile. Great sound, sounded realistc in headphones only, but wasn't intriguing. The Kawai had more character, and I wouldn't say any less realistic than the Roland, I just don't think I like the sound of Kawais quite as much, acoustic or digital. The The tone some of the low mid-range keys bothered me, sounded fake at first but then realized it's just what they were recorded from. Both of them have quieter keys (the thumping of hammer), and feel smoother, but also when comparing directly to the imperfect character of acoustic piano action the Roland's rougher feel is much more realistic. I also like all of the Roland sounds, rather than just the default piano sound. The other ones not so much. The Kurzweil had decent sound, characteristically like the Roland, but not nearly as good. The action is also sub-par, very light and plastic, not like any acoustic piano I've every played. I also played the Roland fp-f7 in the store, which is what this is upgraded from. Lots of people were disappointed in the upgrades, but I think this is a far superior keyboard. Maybe bc it was a floor model, but the fp-f7 seemed like a toy, very loose, plastic feel, really bad speakers. So when it comes down to it, all 4 pianos are very similar in specs, hammer-action, graded keys, only the Kawai and Roland have triple sensor I believe. You'll probably choose based on your personal preference for sound and feel, rather than which one is "better." None of them are perfect. Speakers on Yamaha aside, I can't really say which of the 3 keyboards is "better" or "best." For me I knew I'd get used to all three actions. But the Roland had mystery to the sound, darkness to the low keys, and the higher keys sounded like they were crying. I responded emotionally, so I wanted to play it longer and keep playing it, something I never thought I'd find in a digital piano. The other one's to me sounded like pianos, not much more. I don't necessarily know what I'm missing, but for my purposes I wanted a good, realistic keyboard with onboard speakers that was light weight and I "liked" sound. I thought it was a tall order but I found it in the Roland. Hope this helps!

It's a disappointing upgrade

By Bill Osprey

from Hartford, CT

Comments about Roland FP-80 Digital Piano:

I have a Roland FP-7F which is good, but was hoping for a big upgrade. So, I bought the FP-80 blindly. Had it for two days now and really trying to justify my purchase. Unfortunately, I really do not see or hear a big difference. In fact, i think I lost some features! The only noticeable feature is the new built-in speakers which are ok at best, it is better than my awful FP-7F speakers. FP-80 speakers I would probably rate equal to the Korg SP280 or Kawaii ES7 as I played both. What really drives me crazy is that Roland did not correct the ringing-tin-like sound in the upper keys that FP-7F has. I guess it's just part of the Super Natural sound as i can hear it in RD700nx as well. The "Acoustic Projection technology" is such gimmicky way of saying that we just added to tiny little junky speakers and each end of keyboard that make it a little louder. Wow Roland, I really expected more from you. I plan to return it since it is basicly the same as my FP-7F.

    Comments about Roland FP-80 Digital Piano:

    I got this Roland FP-80 for my daughter. She loves the sound of the built in speakers and the action. She also loves the microphone feature. So far we are thrilled with our Roland FP-80 purchase in white ;). Guitar Center was so helpful in our purchase! Thanks to Gavin and Daniel ;).
