By pressing a key on the V Piano, you’ll instantly realize the beauty and authenticity of the sound. The V Piano replicates every detail of the acoustic piano’s sound-production process, starting from the hammer hitting the strings. The result is seamless, transparent tonal change that corresponds to key pressure, unlike sample-based pianos that change in a digital step-like
manner. With the V Piano, decaying sounds linger and fade naturally, unlike sample-based pianos that employ waveform loops. For the first time in a digital instrument, the V Piano provides truly accurate, authentic piano sounds that meet high-level performance demands.
The V Piano soars above the limitations of past technologies with its revolutionary living
piano core, allowing every note to respond and evolve naturally, seamlessly, and perfectly without requiring samples. With the V Piano, there is no velocity switching, and it provides a smooth, natural decay that must be heard to be believed.
Create Your Dream Collection
The V Piano’s Vintage piano model was created by meticulously analyzing the most reverd, respected acoustic pianos from the past. In doing so, Roland’s master sound designers achieved stunning realism and sound quality. With detailed control over the fine-tuning of multiple strings, hammer hardness, and complex resonance, you can make the V Piano sound and behave like the most beloved acoustic pianos on the planet, from historical antique pianos to modern concert grands.
Choose from beautifully crafted vintage grand-piano presets or you can create your own custom dream collection. Vary the hardness of the virtual hammer felts. Experiment with exotic string configurations and tunings. Put a world-famous grand under your fingertips or play a futuristic piano that has never been heard before.
Vanguard Piano Model
The V Piano’s Vanguard piano model takes the instrument to new levels of creativity. Imagine a piano with 3 string for every key, wrapped in copper material or made of steel. Tones that used to be unavailable are now at your fingertips with smooth, fluid performance across every note. Thunderously deep and smooth low notes can also be achieved, thanks to all-triple-string programming. Set the piano-voicing parameters individually for each register, enabling gorgeous sounds, textures, and resonances that have never been heard before.
PHA-III Ivory Feel Keyboard
Even the most demanding pianist will appreciate the V Piano’s PHA-III Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement. This advanced keyboard technology was developed to achieve maximum comfort, playability, and response. It drastically improves key repetition while perfectly conveying dynamic, velocity-based tonal changes. The keyboard also features Roland’s acclaimed Ivory Feel
, a comfortable and realistic moisture-absorbent material that prevents slipping caused by perspiration during performance. Even the subtle click feel when the hammer is released from the key (escapement) is reproduced.
High technology doesn’t have to equate to high complexity for the pianist. With its clean control panel and logically designed user interface, the V Piano is amazingly fast and friendly to navigate. Even deep-level editing is easy to access and understand. You’ll be customizing and creating new sounds within minutes of first touching the instrument.
