The new HP-302 digital piano brings the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, which is the ultimate in piano expressivity, and a PHAII keyboard with Escapement, which reproduces the natural playing feel found in grand pianos, in a compact, high-quality cabinet. It also supports the “Classic Position” which creates a piano-like appearance, and comes with 3 pedals with traditional designs, sturdy front legs and convenient music rest with music Holders. While this is an entry model, discerning attention has been paid to its sound, touch, and design. Needless to say, it comes with a metronome function and 3-track recorder to help you make progress. The “Twin Piano” feature is convenient for one-on-one lessons. Centralized Control Panel with dedicated buttons assures intuitive operations. By connecting two headphones, two players can practice independently at the same time. The HP-302 achieves low power consumption while delivering a dynamic piano sound that is above its class.
Super Natural Piano
The HP-302 is based on Roland’s new SuperNATURAL Piano engine — a breakthrough technology derived from the flagship V-Piano, as well as 88-key stereo multisampling. SuperNATURAL Piano brings a new level of authentic sound and natural performance to the digital domain. Roland’s engineers relentlessly analyzed the complex, ever-changing characteristics of concert grand pianos, faithfully capturing and reproducing the tonal variations based on the velocity of each keystroke. Three key elements have been dramatically enhanced: velocity response, note decay and key-range behavior. The end result is an incredibly expressive and authentic sound that blurs the line between digital and acoustic.
PHA II (Progressive Hammer Action) Keyboard with Escapement
For the most authentic acoustic grand piano feel, the HP-302 is equipped with the new PHA II keyboard with Escapement. This amazing keyboard technology offers the same natural response as a grand piano, with a heavier touch in the lower range and lighter touch in the upper, and with lighter resistance on pianissimo passages and stronger resistance on fortissimo just like a well-maintained acoustic grand. It even faithfully reproduces the escapement “click feel” of a grand-piano action.
The HP-302 is available in gorgeous wood cabinets with Rosewood or Satin Black finishes. The HP-302 offers a Classic Position key lid that can be positioned to conceal the control panel, as well as elegant and solid front legs, classically shaped triple pedals and a convenient music score holder on music stopper.
Two Pianos in One!
For side-by-side practice or performance, you can divide the keyboard into left and right zones with Twin Piano mode, which allows two people to play the same range of pitches. It’s like having two independent pianos spread across one keyboard. You can choose to have the two zones blended or separated (Individual mode) so sound of the right-hand keyboard zone is heard only from the right speaker and the sound of the left-hand zone is heard only in the left speaker. Similarly, with headphones, you can blend the zones in both headphones or separate them with the two headphone outputs.
Extra Enjoyment with Play-Along Backing Tracks
The new HP-302 is packed with a library of play-along songs, from classical to jazz. You can also play songs in a variety of formats, including commercially available SMF music files or audio files stored on your USB flash memory (sold separately), and audio CDs*. With built-in songs and SMF music files, you can designate which parts to play back. Play an orchestra backing part and play the piano part on top of it with your right hand to create a powerful ensemble performance. Since you can alter the key and tempo independently, you can slow down the playback of songs you are learning, or change the key of the song depending on the vocal range. The possibilities are endless. You can also use the Center Cancel function to minimize the melody part on an audio CD, and play along with one hand. You can also jam or sing with your favorite band.
