If you're searching for a digital piano for your home or classroom, the Roland RP-701 offers a variety of premium features that make it too good to pass up. It all starts with stunningly realistic grand piano sound, courtesy of Roland's SuperNATURAL Piano technology. Thanks to the company's PHA-4 Standard keyboard, the RP-701 feels like the real deal, too. The true-to-life progressive damper action pedal is just icing on the cake. The RP-701's stereo speaker system ensures excellent, performance-ready sound, while 3D Ambience gives you realistic, natural sound while practicing with headphones. To top it off, you can stream music from your tablet or smartphone via Bluetooth, in addition to taking advantage of apps that make learning easy. An eye-catching cabinet puts the perfect finishing touch on the RP-701.
Coupled with the expressive touch of the RP-701's PHA-4 Standard keyboard, Roland's renowned SuperNATURAL piano modeling engine delivers supremely authentic acoustic grand piano sound. At Music Experience, we've found that the SuperNATURAL sound engine gives you an intimate and customizable connection with your keyboard. Each note can be shaped to respond to your touch and dynamics with the tone and harmonic accuracy you desire. Roland's PHA-4 Standard keyboard provides a playing experience that is perfect for beginners while satisfying even the most seasoned pianists.
No matter your skillset on the piano, Roland’s PHA-4 Standard keyboard brings out the best in your playing. Authentic Hammer Action and Escapement helps communicate every nuance of expression and dynamics. With its high-resolution sensing and fast key repetition, this keyboard is built to satisfy even the most advanced pianists, so you won’t need to upgrade your RP-701 as your technique improves. The keys even simulate the look and feel of real ebony and ivory, and their textured, moisture-absorbing properties deepen the feeling that you're playing a fine acoustic grand piano. And to enhance the superb expressiveness of the keyboard, the RP-701 is equipped with a progressive damper action pedal that mimics the feel and response of those found on the finest acoustic pianos.
When you're practicing with headphones, you want a satisfying sonic experience, and that's precisely what you get with the RP-701. Roland's 3D Ambience technology is engineered to give you the sensation that you're playing in a real acoustical space, yielding a rich, natural piano sound.
The RP-701 is loaded with 324 great sounds that run the full gamut of musical instruments. There are onboard effects, too. Practice and performance features include Twin Piano, which effectively lets you split the keyboard into two parts, each with identical note range and its own sustain pedal (in this mode, the left and right pedals each have the damper function). Twin Piano is ideal for lessons and duets, but that's not the RP-701's only skill-building feature. The built-in metronome and SMF (standard MIDI file) recorder let you practice with a perfect time reference and also record and listen back to your performances — critical for polishing your chops.
The RP-701 supports Bluetooth streaming of audio from your smart device, so you can play along with songs from your music library. You can take advantage of any iOS/Android MIDI music apps and benefit from Roland's Piano Partner 2 app, which displays digital notation for the RP-701's internal songs and provides backing rhythms and other useful practice tools. You can also personalize and fine-tune the RP-701's sounds with the Piano Designer app via your device's touch display.
If you’re looking at a piano for the whole family, the Roland RP701 is the perfect package. Sound quality and keyboard feel are the two most important factors when learning to play, and this affordable digital instrument offers bright, rich tone courtesy of Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano technology, plus our highly playable PHA-4 Standard keyboard for the authentic feel of an acoustic piano. The RP701 is also designed to be so intuitive to use that even younger players can jump in right away. Easy-to-read icons and a clutter-free front panel ensure that the focus is on playing and enjoyment, not reading the owner’s manual. And with built-in Bluetooth connectivity for streaming music from your smartphone and accessing a world of apps, there’s always something new to try and keep everyone motivated. Fill the room with music via the powerful onboard speakers, sharpen your skills in private with immersive Headphones 3D Ambience, or simply appreciate the traditional look of a high-class piano that brings a note of sophistication to your home. Whether you’d like your children to learn or you’re returning to the piano yourself, the RP701 has the sound, feel, and looks for the whole family to enjoy.
If you’re used to playing your piano teacher’s acoustic, you’ll find the RP701 a smooth transition. This digital piano feels instantly familiar, not only capturing the sound of each note in minute detail, but also reflecting your touch and dynamics. The powerful onboard SuperNATURAL sound engine means you’ll hear all the subtle changes in tone and resonance, just as you would on an acoustic instrument. That lifelike tone is matched by the PHA-4 Standard keyboard, whose escapement and ivory-touch white keys feel just right, even down to the distinctive “click” when each one is played. Also included is a Progressive Damper Action pedal, so you can practice the same half-pedal techniques you’ve learned at music lessons.
The RP701’s simple controls and friendly icons make it easy for younger players to access all the basics on their own—without you standing over them. From 300-plus onboard songs and a practice-friendly metronome to recording functions and app connectivity, it’s all right under the fingers. Sit down and enjoy rich, powerful sound from the twin speakers. Or when you want to focus on playing without distractions, simply slide the keyboard lid to hide the control panel, connect headphones, and lose yourself in Headphones 3D Ambience that surrounds you with warm, evocative piano sound.
If you’re drawn to the classic contours of an acoustic piano, the RP701 will appeal to you. Influenced by the award-winning design of Roland’s high-end LX and HP series, the sophisticated cabinet blends curves and straight lines, with slim front legs that complete the visual statement. Available in four finishes, the RP701 blends into a wide variety of room styles. Try soothing and subtle dark rosewood, or a light oak finish with its fusion of elegant oak grain and fashionable greige accents. Or just keep it classic with the striking white or contemporary black options.
Great digital pianos include features that keep the whole family interested, so everyone’s more likely to keep playing. Using Bluetooth audio, you can connect to your tablet or smartphone, stream music through the RP701’s speakers or headphones, and then play along with your favorite artists. And with Bluetooth MIDI, it’s simple to explore online teaching platforms like Skoove or try Roland’s Piano Every Day app, which automatically records your performance for self-assessment and challenges you to learn a new piece with the One Week Master program.
