In creating the HP603 Roland researched every detail to create a grand piano experience for those playing at home, as well as offering a diverse set of features that make practicing convenient and enjoyable. At the core is the SuperNatural sound engine, offering more than mere sample playback and instead modelling the behaviour of a real piano. Add to that 3D Headphone Ambience and Bluetooth connectivity and you've got digital piano convenience with true piano sound quality.
SuperNATURAL Piano Modelling for a Rich, Living Piano Sound
Press a key on most digital pianos and you’ll hear a recording of a piano note. But a SuperNATURAL Piano works differently, using the latest modelling technology to recreate, rather than replay, the sound. The unique modelling process spans the entire sound creation process of a typical piano including the combination of notes played, their resonance and the way in which the piano’s many elements interact with each other. The result is a rich, complex sound – complete with overtones – that actually changes in response to the way you play; something impossible to achieve when a piano uses samples. It’s the difference between just listening back to a recording or actually being there yourself.
Grand Piano Sound Through Your Headphones
One of the great advantages of a digital piano is the ability to play quietly with headphones. However, when used with headphones, some digital pianos simply switch the sound from the speakers to your ears. This is a missed opportunity as good headphones can provide remarkable clarity and detail when you’re practicing. Roland pianos use Headphones 3D Ambience to optimize the audio so it sounds like it’s coming from within the piano itself not through your headphones. You’ll also be able to practice for extended periods of time without fatigue, any time of the day or night.
The Look and Feel of a Wooden Keyboard, Without the Drawbacks
The wooden piano keyboards often found on acoustic pianos are attractive to look at and they feel solid and substantial under your fingers. But a completely wooden keyboard is not the best approach for a digital piano, as wooden keys need regular maintenance to keep them in the best condition. The HP603 has a new type of keyboard that blends wood and molded material for the best of both worlds; beautiful wooden sides give each key a familiar, rigid mass that feels just right to play, while the durable inner frame means you can enjoy your Roland piano every day for years to come without worrying about reliability. You can play it every night too – as our piano key construction also produces less of a ‘thump’ noise when played.
Plays Like an Acoustic Grand Piano
It’s not just the feel of the keys either; the way they move is also important. Each key has a stabilizing pin to ensure the vertical travel of the key is smooth and precise, avoiding the sideways key movement and noise experienced when playing glissandos on some pianos. Since the HP603 has our latest piano engine onboard, we also retuned the key sensing system to match it, ensuring that the sound and keyboard work in complete harmony for the ultimate piano experience. Finally, the keys share the look and feel of real ebony and ivory, and their moisture-absorbing properties mean your fingers won’t slide off when playing.
Connect Your Smartphone or Tablet via Bluetooth Technology– and Use Apps to Make Learning Easy
The way people learn the piano is changing thanks to smartphones and tablets. Whether you order your music scores from an online store like Sheet Music Direct, or you prefer a more advanced approach, the HP603 fits around the way you like to play. Using iOS apps like PiaScore gives free access to over 70,000 classical music scores – and by pressing the piano’s pedal you can even turn the pages of the score on your iPad/iPhone screen.
Elegant Design, Classic Lines, Timeless Sound
Although it’s packed with advanced technology, the HP603 is reassuringly traditional when it comes to style. Combining classic lines with a space-saving compact footprint, there are three premium finishes available; contemporary rosewood and easy-to-clean contemporary black or white. Once your piano is home, you don’t even need to press the power button to get started – just open the lid and start playing.
