Inspiring authentic piano sound and performance
Equipped with technology from flagship digital pianos, the Roland RP501R keeps you musically inspired—whether you're a beginner or an experienced pianist. Under the blessing of Roland's SuperNATURAL sound source technology, it delivers the full and emotional sound quality of a traditional grand piano, and the built-in speakers show dynamic sound beyond its body size. The ivory-textured PHA-4 keyboard responds to the finesse of your fingertips, and the progressively powerful sustain pedal allows you to fully demonstrate the various pedaling skills of traditional pianists. Absolutely touching piano sound that will make you fall in love with it!
305 great tones, 72 backing accompaniments, and educational features to take your learning by leaps and bounds
Traditional pianos have only one timbre, which can sometimes be frustrating when you are still learning. In addition to the authentic traditional piano sounds, the RP501R also offers over 300 other sounds for your musical creativity. Use the built-in rhythm function to make your practice time more interesting, and 72 backing styles (pop, jazz, Latin, etc.) are available for you to choose to match your performance. There are also Bluetooth MIDI and USB functions, which can be connected to your tablet or smartphone, allowing you to use piano-specific apps, such as Roland's Piano Partner 2, which can display the score of the built-in songs, making your reading ability even better.
Lightweight, easy to maintain, and free to practice at any time
Traditional pianos are bulky and expensive to maintain, and can be a problem for neighbors if you want to practice at night. The Roland RP501R solves these problems for you. The weight of the guitar body is only 41 kg, which can be easily lifted by two adults, and the depth of the guitar body is only 43.2 cm, which saves you more space. Late at night is often the moment of inspiration, with adjustable volume and available headphone functionality, so you don't have to worry about disturbing your neighbors' peace when you're immersed in full, lingering headphone 3D sound.
Auxiliary practice function for starting the piano
It's not easy to maintain long-term motivation in the beginner piano stage, but the Roland RP501R is equipped with a variety of functions to make practice more enjoyable. The built-in metronome helps develop your sense of rhythm, and the built-in recorder lets you assess your progress. Audio files and MIDI files can be played from a USB flash drive, allowing you to play along with your favorite songs from the speakers of the piano, and the Twin Piano mode allows you to play consecutive or duets at the same pitch with a partner or teacher . When you want to learn a new song, download it to your tablet from Sheet Music Direct, or install the free piaScore app to access a rich library of over 70,000 classical scores. You can even control the page-turning of the sheet music on your tablet screen by pressing the pedals of the piano.
