Product Description

Previously, the only avenue to an authentic piano sound and touch was a large, heavy, and hard-to-carry keyboard. Now, with the Roland RD-64 Digital Piano, stage and studio players can enjoy Roland's acclaimed piano features in a compact, travel-friendly instrument. SuperNATURAL Piano technology powers ultra-expressive acoustic piano tones, while the 64-note Ivory Feel-G keyboard provides a true weighted-action playing feel. Also onboard is a selection of SuperNATURAL-based vintage EPs, plus essential clav and organ tones. Controller mode instantly turns the RD-64 into a flexible MIDI master keyboard, with a special one-touch setup that unlocks the SuperNATURAL sound potential in a connected INTEGRA-7 sound module or JUPITER-80/-50 synth. Streamlined and mobile, the RD-64 delivers piano-action performance and impressive versatility for live playing, on-the-go composing, home studios, teaching labs, and beyond.

Hear the RD-64 in action with this video from Roland:


Streamlined and Travel Ready

With the RD-64, gigging players now have access to a compact, weighted-action stage piano that's as easy to transport as a synthesizer. The streamlined, lightweight design fits easily in small vehicles and takes up less space on crowded stages, plus it makes fly dates less costly and more convenient for touring musicians. It also works great as a high-quality, space-saving keyboard for home studios, teaching labs, and mobile composing. The optional CB-61L Carrying Bag is a perfect match for the RD-64, providing durable protection when you're on the move.

SuperNATURAL Piano Sounds

The RD-64 features Roland's acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine for top-level acoustic piano tones, plus a selection of expressive SuperNATURAL-based electric pianos. The rich, ultra-responsive sounds have a wide dynamic range with seamless variations in tone, delivering pro results for stage playing and studio recording. Also onboard are a number of clav and organ sounds, giving performing keyboardists the essential sounds they need for playing a wide range of music styles.

Ivory Feel-G Keyboard

The 64-note Ivory Feel-G keyboard in the RD-64 incorporates Roland's most advanced sensor technology, escapement mechanism, and Ivory Feel features. This gives you the superior touch, sensitivity, and appearance of the keyboards found in the flagship 88-note pianos, right down to the unique key material that replicates the authentic texture and moisture-absorbing properties of real ivory and ebony. Combined with the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, the Ivory Feel-G offers expressivity and performance that rivals high-end instruments.

Effects and More

Onboard effects include a high-quality stereo reverb, plus EFX 1 and EFX 2 processors that provide sweetening specifically tailored to each of the RD-64's tone categories. Options include enhancer and damper resonance for grand piano sounds, tremolo and phaser for EPs, and many more, with quick on/off access via easy-to-reach buttons. There's even a dedicated rotary effect for the organ, featuring on/off and speed controls for authentic organ performance. A two-band EQ is provided for overall sound shaping, with easy adjustment on the fly via two convenient knobs. Stereo RCA inputs allow you to connect a music player for live backing tracks and practicing.

Advanced Controller Features

In a flash, Controller mode* turns the RD-64 into a powerful master keyboard outfitted with assignable knobs, buttons, pitch bend/mod lever, and the famous D-BEAM, perfect for controlling synths and other devices on stage and in the studio. Additionally, the one-touch SuperNATURAL button automatically assigns the RD-64's controllers to fully utilize the massive expressive potential of the SuperNATURAL tones in Roland's 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.

With an ever-increasing number of music apps available, the iPad is becoming more and more popular for basic production and on-the-go composing. By plugging in via Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit, the RD-64 gives you a mobile, weighted-action keyboard to use with the popular tablet computer.

"This little guy gets funky."
Overall: I've waited a long time for something like this. I'm a guitar/keyboard player who is obsessed with vintage sounds. I started with a Casio privia, but it quickly became evident that I'd need an upgrade. I got a used nord e2 and hooked it up to the casio as a midi controller. I just couldn't get into the sounds.. the velocity switching was too dramatic for my taste. Sold that and picked up a new Kurzweil sp8-4. It had amazing Ep's and organs, but the acoustic piano was god awful sounding. Too metallic and mid rangy..(I know I'm picky right?). Anyway.. after NAMM 2013 it was between the new Casio Px 5s, and the RD 64. I initially thought the Casio was better in terms of with it could do, and I'm sure for some it will be. For me the ep's sounded too boxy and fake, and I wondered who long I could handle the stark white color. The limited range of the Rd's 64 for notes had me worried, but I went for it anyway and I'm really happy with it so far. The ep's sound amazing live and the velocity switching is very smooth, it almost feels like you're playing the real thing. I'm not much of a organ player but I love the b3 that it has. This is not the keyboard a organ player would be interested it but it fills that slot well. I do think the top rotors on the leslie sim accelerate to fast, and the bottons are a bit far away for real organ playing, not a deal breaker for me.. (ie not a organ player). The Clavs are totally usable, especially with a real wah pedal. The Acoustic piano's are great, the quality is there, but they sound a bit compressed. Probably best represented in stereo, but I'm a mono guy. They seem to be at a lower volume than the other samples too, so you have to give yourself more head room on the PA, or amp. They cut through a band mix fine with a little onboard eqing.. again not a deal breaker. So all in all I'm very pleased with it, my band loves the sounds and are exited for the new material it leads itself to. I didn't give it a 5 star rating because I feel there's always room for improvement. This is for people who need and quick and easy board with great vintage sounds to hit some dates with.
Style of Music: Funk, Classic Rock, R&B, Folk Rock, Indie... all the good stuff.

"On the pianissimo and fast parts this piano is an absolute sucker"
Overall: I have this piano for about 2-3 months now and have been making money with it every day as a street musician. I needed a compact piano with weighted action and a decent onboard piano sound, so when this came out I grabbed it right away. I use it in combination with a Roland KC-110 amplifier. It seems like a reliable sturdy piano so far. Being shorter than an 88keys piano is an advantage for transporting it through the subway every day. A longer piano would oscillate more and that would have a negative consequence on the keybed on the long term. On the other hand it is not as short as it could be for a 64keys piano and it is rather heavy for a piano that doesnít have its own speakers. It is heavier than many 88key pianos with onboard speakers. The action is really hard to get used to. I have been playing on a Kawai ES-4 with an ďadvanced hammer action 4Ē before I buy the Roland and it seems that this keybed canít compete with the Kawai on the fast parts. I keep struggling to include all the notes that I included with the Kawai on my performances, but it seems really hard to do that with the Roland. Trying not to drop the detail of the articulation I had with the Kawai, I struggle and struggle with the Roland and loose the smooth mellow feeling that came easy with the Kawai. On the pianissimo and fast parts this piano is an absolute sucker. Also the left and right output for the amplifier and the headphone output are really low volume. The volume of the headphone is really low and cannot function in parallel with the audio left and right outputs, so you canít monitor what you are playing with headphones as you play together with other musicians. The piano sound has some problems too. At many times the high pitched notes sound twice. Once when I hit the key, and once again a fraction of a second later. In addition when you turn the resonance effect on (second button default effect) the bass becomes muddy and the amplifier distorts even at low volume. The keyboard and the sound of the Roland do not seem connected at all, compared to Kawai digital instruments. Of course it doesnít feel like an acoustic piano at all. Then again, Roland doesnít make acoustic pianos. Despite all the negative things about the Roland RD-64, this piano did what it was bought to do. It helped me share my music on the street and I have already raised the money I spent for the piano, the amplifier, the battery, the microphones, the inverter, the stands, the compressor, the carrying cases and the hand truck. So know, Iím looking forward for my brand new Kawai ES-7 that will be staying always at home where I can develop my fast and expressive finger technique, something that couldnít be done with the Roland RD-64.
