Roland RD700GX stage piano with USB

 

Roland RD700GX stage piano

The Roland RD700 GX adds USB functionality to the already excellent spec of the Roland RD700 SX.

Features

The RD-700GX is anchored by Roland’s finest 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano engine, including a brand-new expressive piano sound, with every note captured using a generous amount of wave capacity. In addition to its super-expressive onboard piano sound-sets, other essential instruments are built into this new piano, including EPs. You can even customise and save your sounds for instant recall.

Perfect Touch
Your fingers will love the RD-700GX’s top-of-the-line PHA II “Ivory Feel” keyboard with Escapement. This amazing keyboard technology reproduces the real surface feel of ivory acoustic piano keys providing a familiar stability and comfort to the pianist. The keys are designed to absorb moisture, ensuring a secure, slip-proof feel, even in the hottest stage environments where sweaty hands can spell disaster.

SuperNATURAL™ EP
Another distinguishing feature of the RD-700GX is its electric-piano sound bank derived from Roland’s unique SuperNATURAL™ technology. Enjoy realism, expression, and control like never before with this special selection of EPs that provide amazingly authentic and organic tonal response.

USB Audio Enhancement
Play audio through the RD-GX directly from a USB memory key. Flexible file compatibility enables playback of Standard MIDI Files, .WAV, AIFF and MP3s. The “Audio Key” feature lets you use the bottom 15 keys for controlling start song, song length, etc. In addition, you can connect directly to a PC via USB.

Custom Shop
For those who like to get inside an instrument and customise its sounds, the RD-GX’s Piano Designer feature is your key to unlocking and personalising the sound-set, down to the smallest details such as Hammer Noise, Damper Resonance, Duplex Scale and more. In the RD-700GX, sounds can be further customised with the eight channels of powerful onboard multi-effects.

Sound Expansion, Master Control
Expand and personalise the internal sound-set by adding up to two optional Roland SRX expansion boards, then take your music to the stage. The RD-GX series make great master controllers, thanks to multi-zone functionality and multiple MIDI outputs (three MIDI outputs).
