Roland has announced the FP-X series, the latest generation of Roland's long-running FP series of portable digital pianos. They tell us that the FP-90X, FP-60X, and FP-30X each deliver best-in-class performance, with Roland's acclaimed piano engines and hammer-action keyboards coupled with Bluetooth audio/MIDI and USB connectivity, recording and metronome functions, and more. A spokesperson said, "Offering no-compromise sound and playability in stylish, portable designs, the FP-X series is the ideal choice for home pianists, modern families, educators, and anyone looking for a premium piano experience in a compact instrument."
Here's more details direct from Roland...
The top-of-the-line FP-90X features Roland's PureAcoustic Piano Modeling technology for ultimate piano realism. The 88-note PHA-50 Progressive Hammer Action Keyboard with Escapement offers the latest sensing technology and a combination of wood and ivory-feel materials for natural playability and lasting durability.
The mid-level FP-60X and entry-level FP-30X feature the expressive SuperNATURAL Piano engine found in many Roland professional stage and home pianos. Each model is also equipped with the 88-note PHA-4 Standard keyboard with progressive hammer action, escapement, ivory-feel keys, and high-resolution sensing.
All FP-X models offer many piano and non-piano sounds for musical exploration, high-quality audio with built-in stereo speakers, and the ability to plug in two sets of headphones for quiet practice and teacher/student interaction. Onboard Bluetooth allows users to play along with songs from mobile devices and connect with music apps such as Roland's Piano Every Day and Piano Designer.
FP-X finishes include black or white, and there's an optional stand and pedals available for each model to create a compact upright piano configuration.
