As the flagship in the RD-line of stage pianos, the Roland RD700GX provides the serious, working keyboardist with more than just a sophisticated live solution. The RD700GX is a performance instrument sure to inspire even the most jaded of pro pianists. Utilizing the revolutionary SuperNATURAL sound engine for uncannily realistic acoustic and electric pianos, and the PHA II "Ivory Feel" 88-key keyboard, the Roland RD700GX will make you fall in love with digital stage pianos all over again.
Sounds So Good, It's Spooky
The RD700GX incorporates Roland's state-of-the-art SuperNATURAL sound engine, a significant step up form the typical multi-sample stage piano sound. Even on a piano with many MB of memory dedicated to samples, the patchwork nature of multi-sample synthesis makes gaps between dynamics layers on each note inevitable. SuperNATURAL instruments eliminate these gaps by organically morphing between samples, resulting in a piano sound that's every bit as expressive as the real thing. The same sound morphing engine also contributes to the most organic note decay Roland has ever achieved in a digital piano. The deep editing functions of the RD700GX and its sound engine also let you customize your piano sounds from the mechanical level-parameters like damper and hammer noise as well as up to eight channels of post-model multi-effects.
Great Grands, Expressive EPs
Unlike many performance keyboards, this cutting edge sound reproduction engine isn't relegated to the acoustic piano sounds alone. The RD700GX has amazing acoustic piano patches, yes, but it also packs in some of the most realistic Electric Piano sounds around. Wurlitzers and Rhodes' use complex mechanisms to produce their signature tones, making them at least as timbrally dynamic as an acoustic piano. The SuperNATURAL engine makes the Roland versions of these classic electric pianos just as expressive as their real-world counterparts, and more customizable. Add even more sonic firepower by installing up to two Roland SRX expansion boards like the Big Brass Ensemble for spot-on horns, or the Dynamic Drums expansion to bring a professional groove to your compositions.
Inspirational Sound Meets Inspirational Playability
Having a sound engine that goes above and beyond to recreate the organic sound of acoustic and electronic pianos doesn't mean much without the playability to match. That's why the RD700GX boasts Roland's PHA II "Ivory Feel" keyboard, with 88-keys that accurately mimic not only the mechanical action and resistance of a piano but also the tactile surface texture. If you're tired of playing plastic keys that feel like they belong on a toy, the PHA II was made for you. This premium playability complements the SuperNATURAL engine to make the Roland RD700GX a truly inspirational stage instrument.
Advanced Stage And Studio Integration
The PHA II is so nice, you'll wish every keyboard in your stage rig had one. Thanks to the RD700GX's full MIDI I/O and advanced zoning options, it makes a superior controller keyboard, so you'll never have to deign to touch less-than-stellar plastic or unweighted keys again. The RD700GX also features smart USB integration for stage and studio use. On stage, the keyboard can read WAV or MP3 audio off a USB thumb drive for instant backing tracks, and in the studio it serves as both keyboard controller and session command center, offering transport and basic track controls. The RD700GX even ships with Cubase LE so you can start making the most of your studio controller right out of the box.
Serious musicians can't afford to compromise on sound quality or playability. If you're ready to upgrade your stage rig from the outsized toy you're playing now, the Roland RD700GX is waiting.
