Unpacking:

Today just arrived, send out the box picture altogether everybody entertainment! The biggest box delivered by express is the main piano.It's out of the box.Still hold the pipa half cover face!

 



Put on the shelf, the white piano is like a work of art


PHA-4 standard keyboard.The gap is even, the keys are crisp, the rebound is simple and powerful, and the hand feel is first-class (I feel that the hand feel is several streets away from my previous ctk-6300 electronic organ)!


The keyboard, transparent acrylic with white body, lights up like a star in the sky!


The white music stand is well placed.If it's transparent, it's even more powerful~~~


Interface close-up, the back is the pedal, power and USB.I don't know how to make it!

Voice color test:

Fp30 panel operation out of the tone, such as saxophone, guitar and so on.Finally, we found that fp30 actually has at least a set of GM sound source (should be GS sound source), including drum group and even folk music!So I used fp30 as the sound source to play the standard MIDI file. I found that the quality of GM sound source is quite high. How high is it?Better than the bk5 keyboard.In particular, the original musical instrument, piano, guitar, orchestral music and vocal are better than bk5. Although GM has only 128 timbres, it is less and better.Moreover, the voice of these fp30s seems to be modulated, and the sound, image and level of the voice are clearer than those of BK when playing standard MIDI as a whole. How to call these timbres in fp30?One of the methods is to use MIDI keyboard or MIDI controller, computer to send cc00, cc32, program change information to switch voice.In addition, use the mobile phone MIDI controller app to switch.

Piano, electric piano, saxophone

Others (the drum set of fp30 is clear, and the sound image of bass, clarinet, Oboe, string, vocal and instrumental music of fp30 is obviously better than that of bk5)

It's not a measurement, it's just a subjective experience.Since we have Roland bk5, we consider starting an electric piano with good sound and simple function.At the beginning, it was all the timefp30, ES100 and p115. As the timbre of bk5 piano is generally recognized, it is a bit higher than that of the keyboard of the same level. I'm worried that the timbre of other electric pianos can't be adjusted, so I can only continue to use Roland electric piano.

Show your true colors:


The system is completed!


At the beginning, the timbre is not so amazing or worth looking forward to, but after playing for a period of time, the timbre becomes more and more attractive.Yamaha electric piano P series and DGX series have been playing for many years. The timbre of piano is the type that wins first. It's bright and aggressive. It catches you as soon as it comes out Supernatural's piano timbre can't show her charm until she hears it for one second. The slightly closed pickup method makes the dynamics and details of string vibration captured unfold slowly with the process of prolonging.There are indeed some software sound sources with high quality, such as ivory series, that is, the timbre of one or two brands, but it's really troublesome to manipulate software sound sources.After carefully comparing the piano timbre of Roland bk5 and fp30, there is still a significant gap in sampling number and dynamic.

 


A key factor is the playback device, whether it's headphones or speakers.Fp30's built-in speaker has thick bass, but the whole sound field distribution is still turbid.As shown in the picture, I use a 1700 price multimedia speaker.I feel that 75% of the timbre can be played, and the other 25% of the details and dynamics can not be displayed due to the device.This multi-media entertainment level speaker makes the bass heavier, and has a good sense of space and layering. For example, the bass and drum effects of bk5 accompaniment are very good, but the resolution of medium and high frequency is not enough, but it is still much better than fp30 and bk5's own speakers (bk5's own speakers almost have no low frequency).I feel that I need a monitor speaker with a price of about 2000 ~ 3000 to basically show all the features of this sound source.The merchant actually gave me a 50 Yuan Miscellaneous brand earphone. When I put on a fp30, the tone of it was the same as that of the electronic organ in the supermarket.It can be seen the importance of playback equipment.


A useful function is that FP has Bluetooth interface and can transmit MIDI through Bluetooth.Fp30 has no MIDI in / out interface, only USB to host interface. Therefore, if fp30 is used as a MIDI keyboard to control bk5, it is usually impossible to connect without a computer.Bluetooth MIDI saved us.As shown in the figure below, with this IOS MIDI routing application, you can use fp30 as MIDI in and BK 5 as MIDI out device (bk5 is connected to the mobile phone through USB port, fp30 is connected to the mobile phone through Bluetooth). In this way, bk5 will become an arrangement keyboard with 88 heavy hammer pha4 keyboard!
