The Piano Redefined
The acoustic piano. an icon of artistry and elegance, a cornerstone of the musical arts. Over the centuries, the piano has been refined by skilled craftsmen and fostered by composers and musicians on every continent, yet the instrument has remained fundamentally unchanged since its inception. Until now. Introducing the V-Piano, Rolands bold redefinition of the classic instrument. Sophisticated and streamlined, the V-Piano can be tuned, adjusted, played, and appreciated just like the finest acoustic grand, but thats only the beginning. With Rolands innovative living piano engine inside, the V-Piano soars above the limits of modern digital-piano technology, ushering in a new world of creative potential and musical expression.

Advanced Sound-Generation System Based on Acoustic-Piano Components
Sounds are produced on an acoustic piano by pressing a key, which causes a hammer to hit metal strings that are stretched across the pianos frame. The resulting sound causes other strings to resonate from the bridge to the soundboard to the body and outward into the surrounding space. This sound-production process was fundamental in the development of the V-Piano. The complex interaction of components was recreated meticulously, resulting in rich, realistic, organic grand-piano sound and performance.
Keyboard/Action Damper Soundboard Frame
Only the V-Piano Offers the Expressive Capability of an Acoustic Grand
By pressing a key on the V-Piano, youll instantly realize the beauty and authenticity of the sound. The V-Piano replicates every detail of the acoustic pianos sound-production process, starting from the hammer hitting the strings. The result is seamless, transparent tonal change that corresponds to key pressure, unlike sample-based pianos that change in a digital step-like manner. With the V-Piano, decaying sounds linger and fade naturally, unlike sample-based pianos that employ waveform loops. For the rst time in a digital instrument, the V-Piano provides truly accurate, authentic piano sounds that meet high-level performance demands.
New PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with Escapement
The V-Pianos keyboard was newly developed to achieve maximum comfort, playability, and response. The PHA III Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement drastically improves key repetition while perfectly conveying dynamic, velocity-based tonal changes. The V-Piano also provides an escapement mechanism for each key, which recreates the authentic click feel of a grand-piano keyboard. This particularly improves expression when playing pianissimo. The keyboard also features Rolands acclaimed Ivory Feel a comfortable and realistic moisture-absorbent material that prevents slipping caused by perspiration during performance.
Expand Your Creative Horizons with Vintage and Futuristic Pianos
For the most demanding concert pianist Perfect classical performance
The V-Pianos Vintage piano model was created by meticulously analyzing the most revered, respected acoustic pianos from the past. In doing so, Rolands master sound designers achieved stunning realism and sound quality. With detailed control over the fine-tuning of multiple strings, hammer hardness, and complex resonance, you can make the V-Piano sound and behave like the most beloved acoustic pianos on the planet from historical antique pianos to modern concert grands.

Shattering the physical limitations of past technology, the V-Piano lets you create new, innovative instruments
The V-Pianos Vanguard piano model takes the instrument to new levels of creativity. Imagine a piano with three strings for every key, even in the low register, with all strings wrapped in copper material or perhaps made of steel. Tones that were previously unavailable are now at your fingertips, with smooth, fluid performance across every note. Thunderously deep and smooth low notes can also be achieved, thanks to all-triple-string programming. With the V-Piano, you can set the piano-voicing parameters individually for each register, enabling gorgeous sounds, textures, and resonances that have never been heard before.
n All-copper-wrapped strings with three strings per key n Editor screen: Adjust the pitch for specific key area zones
Offering all-silver-wrapped strings as a user-selectable choice, the V-Piano Vanguard model lets you express yourself in bold new ways. Since silver strings are physically softer and heavier than copper, the Vanguard model provides oversized, extra-hard virtual hammers to compensate. Only the V-Piano is capable of bringing this type of dream piano to life, with unprecedented sustain and shimmer. Its also possible to change tonality in real time via footpedal, which can be mapped to parameters such as cross resonance for controlling the hardness of the strings. Tuning is completely customizable as well.

Highly advanced yet friendly V-Piano makes it easy to customize sounds and express
Creating sounds is incredibly easy with the V-Pianos intuitive, streamlined controls.
Although the V-Piano is capable of creating a wide variety of complex sounds, its surprisingly simple to use. Chose a tone and adjust it to sound just the way you want with the friendly, streamlined array of buttons and data dial.
A custom editor helps you create authentic acoustic-piano sounds quickly and easily.
Since the V-Piano can be connected to a computer with a single USB cable, sounds can be customized with easy-to-use graphic-editing software.
Immerse listeners with the V-Pianos specialized ambience effects and four outputs.
The V-Piano features 12 types of advanced spatial effects for adding liquid-smooth ambience. A dedicated Ambience knob is located on the front panel for instant, hands-on control. In addition, the V-Piano is equipped with four outputs for creative, flexible routing.
