Roland FP-7F Digital Piano

Looking for a used Roland FP-7F?

Available in white or black finish, the Roland FP-7F is a great sounding piano with some onboard perks including a mic input, onboard looper, and companion harmony effects. Easily used as either a home console or stage performance.

Features

  • SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine onboard
  • Newly developed PHA III Ivory Feel-S Keyboard with Escapement
  • Built-in speaker system
  • Onboard Looper for instant sound-on-sound layering
  • Mic input and harmony effect
  • Available in black (FP-7F-BK) and white (FP-7F-WH) finishes
  • Compatible with the RPU-3 triple-pedal unit (optional) and matching KSC-44 keyboard stand (optional)
  • DP-10 Damper Pedal included
  • Speaker System
    Internal speaker housings provide rich vibration and warmth, no additional amplification is required for home use.

    The FP-7F features Roland's newly developed PHA III Ivory Feel-S Keyboard with Escapement. With the same progressive hammer action and escapement as the PHA III, it offers good expression and performance authenticity, capable of transforming the most subtle finger nuances into sound. It also provides incredibly fast key-repetition action. The keys are constructed of a one-piece proprietary material that provides excellent moisture absorbency and a premium all white appearance around the tops and sides of the keys. You can also add the optional RPU-3 for more control and expression.

    The included DP-10 Damper Pedal provides continuous-pedaling capability, while the optional RPU-3 Triple-Pedal Unit affords a fully authentic grand piano playing experience. In addition, the RPU-3 gives you hands-free control of various functions, including the harmony effects and Looper.

    Onboard Looper
    Expand your musical creativity with the onboard Looper, which is fully optimized for keyboard players. You can instantly create overdubbed loops using the sounds of FP-7F itself and/or audio from the mic input (see below). For instant musical adrenaline, tap into the built-in library of rhythm patterns; each pattern has a matching intro and ending, great for songwriters and performers. The Looper can be easily operated with front-panel buttons, while the optional RPU-3 triple-pedal unit offers advanced foot control. Additionally, loops you create can be saved as WAV files to USB fl ash media and used with the FP-7F's Audio Key playback feature.

    Mic Input / Harmony FX
    The FP-7F has a built-in mic input for sing-along fun. Plug in a microphone (optional) and experience the powerful built-in harmony engine derived from BOSS' VE-20 Vocal Performer. You can choose from three types of vocal harmony: Duet (your voice plus one harmony voice), Trio (your voice plus two voices), and Quartet (your voice plus three voices). The harmony engine can detect which chord you play on the keyboard in real time to create its harmony voices; it can also detect chord information from the built-in Session Partner patterns and create matching harmony. The optional RPU-3 Pedal Unit provides hands-free control, letting you turn harmony voices on/off with your feet.
