From the moment you take it out of the box, everything about the Roland RD-700NX says "serious gigging machine." It's got dedicated hardware knobs, road-worthy metal panels with tough plastic endcaps, and an angled rear panel so you can easily see all its jacks from the front of the keyboard. Power it on (in under 5 seconds), and the high-res LCD and large one-touch buttons light up to defy dark stages. And that's before you even feel the textured surface and realistic escapement on Roland's 88-key PHA III Ivory Feel keyboard.

Loaded with SuperNATURAL piano tones, this RD is built for the working musician that needs to access playable sounds -- fast. The RD-700NX also has a generous 3 MIDI OUT jacks for meshing with any live rig. But with 965 on-board sounds, it's got more than enough to cover the gig on its own. When you need one stage piano to do it all, the Roland RD-700NX is your sophisticated-yet-simple solution.

A Superlatively Natural Piano Engine

Roland's state-of-the-art SuperNATURAL sound engine represents a significant step up from ordinary piano multisampling. Even on a piano with several gigabytes of memory dedicated to samples, the patchwork nature of multi-sample synthesis can cause unnatural, stair-step gaps between dynamic levels for a given note. The RD-700NX's SuperNATURAL engine eliminates these gaps by organically morphing between samples, resulting in a piano with breathtaking dynamic range. This breakthrough sound engine also contributes to the most organic note decay Roland has achieved in a digital piano. Nothing's worse than nailing the big finish on a soaring acoustic ballad, just to have your digital piano artificially loop a sample until you can sneak your foot off the pedal in relief. The RD's samples deliver the complex, natural decay of a real acoustic instrument. And speaking of realism: the included DP-10 pedal provides fine gradations that go beyond just half-pedaling. In fact, stomp it without pressing any keys, and you'll actually hear the dampers lift. Bravo!

Hear the captivating tones of the RD-700NX with this video from Roland:


Customizable Live Sets and Effects

The RD-700NX lets you layer up to 4 of its 965 tones in a Live Set, with 100 user-definable slots plus 300 convenient factory Live Sets. Each tone in a Live Set has its own pair of multi-effects slots -- with 84 choices of effects, from EQ and dynamics, to reverbs and amp simulators. Press the Tone Edit button to bring up a screen that lets you adjust parameters like lid height, damper noise, string resonance, stereo width, tone character from mellow to bright, and more -- and that's just for the acoustic pianos. The RD-700NX also packs in dozens of authentic, customizable Wurlitzers and Rhodes electric piano sounds, plus organs and synths galore, along with strings, horns, drum kits and everything else you'd expect from Roland. On 10 tonewheel organ patches, the RD's sliders become drawbars in any configuration you choose. And 8 dedicated hardware knobs with illuminated buttons control global 4-band EQ, reverb, chorus/delay, compressor, and the "Sound Focus" effect -- a presence boost and focused stereo image that help the RD-700NX cut through a dense ensemble, even on quiet passages.

Escape Digital Restrictions

Try pressing an acoustic piano key as softly as possible, and you'll feel a small notch of resistance about two-thirds of the way down. Consider what's happening inside the piano: a hammer momentarily hits the strings and immediately falls away so as not to interfere with the vibration. The mechanism by which a hammer strikes the strings and immediately "escapes" (even if the pianist holds the key down) is called the escapement. It's as if the key "throws" the hammer, and the hammer bounces off the strings. The subtle weight of the escapement is present to some degree on all acoustic pianos, and it's even possible to press a key so softly and slowly that the hammer isn't thrown all the way to the strings and the note doesn't sound at all. Most digital pianos don't bother to replicate escapement, and without this tactile feedback, a pianist will need to make a mental adjustment when going back to a real piano. Not so on Roland's RD-700NX. When you play quietly, you'll feel a small, but convincing bump that emulates a good acoustic -- yet the action is fast enough that the keys won't get in the way when you're playing Bach's ornaments. Combined with the PHA III Ivory Feel keyboard for a no-slip grip, the RD-700NX is simply the closest you can come to the feel of a real live piano in a portable digital instrument.

Advanced Stage And Studio Integration

The Ivory Feel keyboard is so nice, you'll wish every synth in your stage rig had one. Luckily, along with MIDI over USB, the RD-700NX has a full complement of 3 standard MIDI OUT jacks that can be addressed from any of 4 zones on the keyboard, plus MIDI IN. With the RD as your MIDI controller, you'll never have to touch less-than-stellar plastic or non-weighted keys again. The RD-700NX can also read WAV or MP3 audio off a USB thumb drive for instant backing tracks on stage -- and it even records full-quality WAV files directly to USB, as a quick songwriting sketchpad. And for the ultimate in stage and studio connectivity, the RD-700NX has balanced XLR outputs in addition to standard 1/4-inch jacks.

It's not every day that an instrument comes along that's so perfectly suited for the serious gigging musician, with zero compromise on sound quality or playability. If you're ready to upgrade your stage rig, the Roland RD-700NX is ready to perform.

Features:

- 88-key "Ivory Feel" PHA III keyboard with realistic escapement

The flagship stage piano boasts an advanced SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, electric piano sounds based on SuperNATURAL technology, a deluxe PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with Escapement, a unique Sound Focus feature, and a newly improved user interface with a large, high-resolution LCD. Whether your performances focus strictly on piano or a world of sound via master MIDI control, the RD-700NX is a dream instrument for the stage.

- SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine (3 grand-piano types, 30 variations), EP based on SuperNATURAL technology (10 EP types, 15 variations)
- Hundreds of built-in sounds: 242 normal tones, 10 Tone Wheel organs, 256 GM2 tones, 5 rhythm sets, and 9 GM2 rhythm sets

- Master MIDI control features plus four MIDI ports (MIDI IN, MIDI OUT x 2, MIDI OUT/THRU)
- Balanced XLR outputs; USB ports for data storage and audio-play functionality

Grand Piano

The RD-700NX's acoustic piano sounds are derived from Roland's acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine. There are three acoustic piano types onboard (Concert, Studio, and Brilliant) and 30 variations to choose from. With SuperNATURAL Piano technology, three essential elements are dramatically improved: velocity response, note decay, and key-range behavior. Where previous technology created coarse "stair-step" gaps in velocity and key range, and unnatural looping in note decay, SuperNATURAL Piano bridges the gaps with perfectly smooth and natural three-dimensional sound and response.

E. Piano

For EP lovers, the RD-700NX contains a SuperNATURAL-based electric piano that meticulously models vintage electric pianos from the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. Beyond standard EP modeling, SuperNATURAL technology enables completely new types of EP sounds to be created. You can change the position of the virtual pickups, for example, or exchange components of the sound generating system entirely.

PHA III Keyboard

The RD-700NX's PHA III Keyboard with Escapement offers maximum comfort, playability, and response. PHA III improves key repetition and perfectly conveys dynamic, velocity-based tonal changes. The escapement mechanism recreates the authentic "click feel" of a grand-piano keyboard, which particularly enhances expression when playing pianissimo. The keyboard also features Roland's acclaimed Ivory Feel, a comfortable and realistic moisture-absorbent material that prevents slipping from perspiration during performance. The authentic coloration of grand-piano keys can also been seen on the sides of the white keys.

Sound Focus

The innovative Sound Focus feature ensures that every note will be heard, even subtle pianissimo passages. Based on SuperNATURAL phase-correction technology, this essential feature ensures the RD-700NX won't get lost in the mix, penetrating through walls of sound without compressing or coloring the tone. Players can relax and play naturally, achieving presence onstage without sacrificing dynamics and sound quality.

One-Touch Access

The popular One Touch Piano feature from previous RD-series pianos has been enhanced in the RD-700NX. It provides instant access to standard piano sounds and setups with the touch of a button. Three types of acoustic pianos and three types of electric pianos are now available for instant One Touch recall.

Sight & Sound

Along with the gorgeous grand pianos and EPs, hundreds of additional sounds are built into the RD-700NX: 242 tones, 10 Tone Wheel organs, 256 GM2 tones, 5 rhythm sets, and 9 GM2 rhythm sets in all. Sifting through the sound library is fast and convenient with the new, high-resolution LCD, which provides clearer visibility and a beautiful graphical user interface.
