Roland RD-300NX Digital Stage Piano

Looking for a used Roland RD-300NX?

With a lighter weight and more affordable price than the RD-700NX, the RD300 NX raises the bar for onstage performance with its high end sound, great touch, and simple control. The flagship stage piano boasts an advanced "SuperNATURAL" (Roland-speak) piano sound engine, electric piano sounds and ivory feel keyboard and a new user interface with a large, high-resolution LCD. The RD-700NX is a stage piano worth paying attention to.

What does version 2 add?
With the Version 2 software update, the RD-700NX gets new Live Sets and flexible sound creation with the RD-NX Editor for iPad.

Along with the grand pianos and electric pianos, there are hundreds of powerful synthesizer sounds, plus a variety of multi-effects. Combinations of layers, zones, effects, and various tone parameters can be stored as Live Sets for powerful and expressive sound creation.

The RD-NX Editor with the Version 2 software upgrade includes 50 new "Live Sets" with flexible real-time control via sliders or pedals. The RD-NX Editor for iPad lets you select your favorite Live Set easily, and edit your layers visually on the large screen of the iPad. The RD-NX Editor can be used wirelessly with Roland's WNA1100-RL Wireless USB adapter (sold separately).

    Key Features:
  • SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine (3 types/9 Tone variations/30 Live Sets)
  • E.Piano based on SuperNATURAL technology (3 types/12 Tone variations/30 Live Sets)

  • Master MIDI control features plus four MIDI ports (MIDI IN, MIDI OUT x 2, MIDI OUT/THRU)
  • Balanced XLR outputs; USB ports for data storage and audio-play functionality

  • 50 new Live Sets optimized for the RD-700NX
  • The number of User Live Sets have been increased from 100 to 200 on the RD-700NX
  • Download the free RD-NX Editor for iPad with wireless connectivity
  • Quick and easy Favorite Live Set selection with RD-NX Editor

Along with the stadard grand pianos and electric pianos, there are buckets of additional sounds including Tone Wheel organs, GM2 tones, rhythm sets, and GM2 rhythm sets. Sifting through the sound library is fast and convenient with the new, high-resolution LCD, which provides clearer visibility and a beautiful graphical user interface. As well, the One Touch Piano feature from previous RD-series pianos has been enhanced, providing instant access to standard piano sounds and setups with the touch of a button. Three types of acoustic pianos and three types of electric pianos are now available for instant One Touch recall.
