ROLAND V-PIANO NOW AVAILABLE - Acoustic Piano Legacy Melds with Cutting Edge V-Technology
(Roland | Posted 2009-05-12)
Los Angeles, CA, May 5, 2009 — Roland is proud to announce general availability of the next step forward in V-Technology, the historic V-Piano™. Equipped with groundbreaking sound engine technology and unprecedented piano sound design capability for the most accurate, authentic piano sounds ever constructed, the V-Piano is poised to carve its own niche in digital piano history. The V-Piano employs Roland’s new Piano Component Object Sound Modeling synthesis. Unlike previous loop-based sampling, the V-Piano reproduces the complex interactions of acoustic piano components, as well as the subtle modulations generated by touch. Players will experience new, smooth transitions between pianissimo and fortissimo without staggering. The new PHA III Ivory Feel keyboard action and sensors not only support high repetition, but also reproduce the tonal fluctuations caused by differences in stroke acceleration patterns. In addition, the V-Piano utilizes a new and dedicated smart CPU that actually learns each performer’s unique playing expression.
