If your dreams of a grand piano have been dashed by the dimensions of your home, the Roland F-130R Digital Piano could be the perfect fit. There’s plenty of performance in this ultra-compact instrument. Discerning pianists get the faithful acoustic tone and feel to keep them inspired. Improving players get the tools they need to progress, from built-in stereo speakers, a headphone feature and onboard rhythms, to the option of interacting with Roland’s free piano apps. The Roland F-130R doesn’t just fit your apartment. It fits your life.
Won’t fill your apartment (or empty your pocket)
Size, expense and volume are three major problems that stop many pianists buying the acoustic grand of their dreams. The Roland F-130R has the answer. With compact dimensions and a choice of black/white finish, this is a stylish and ultra-practical choice when space is at a premium. Volume-adjustable stereo speakers and a headphone setting featuring Roland’s atmospheric Headphones 3D Ambience effect mean you’ll avoid showdowns with the neighbours, while the digital format lets you skip expensive visits from the piano tuner.
Faithful acoustic grand performance – plus 305 onboard instruments
Perhaps you’ve never tried a digital piano before, and worry you’ll miss the full-bodied tone and organic feel of acoustic. Playing is believing with the Roland F-130R. This instrument goes far beyond faithful, with Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine nailing the rich, complex sound you love, while the new PHA-4 Standard Keyboard delivers the same response, sensing technology and Ivory Feel texture of our flagship instruments. More of a maverick? Then you’ll love the Roland F-130R’s choice of 305 onboard instrument tones, simulating brass, strings, organ, guitar and more.
Get better fast with 72 onboard rhythms & 6 pianist styles
Jamming is great fun and the fastest way to improve, but it’s not always feasible to fill your apartment with live musicians. Problem solved with the Roland F-130R, whose intelligent onboard rhythm function lets you play along with full backing in 72 styles (from reggae to Latin), with the virtual band automatically following your chord changes. There’s also a metronome, onboard recorder for self-assessment and a Twin Piano mode that splits the keyboard so you and a partner can play side-by-side in the same key ranges.
Interacts with Mac, PC, iPad and Roland’s free piano apps
In the modern age, many pianists use computers as part of their music setup. The Roland F-130R is as forward-thinking as you, offering USB connectivity to Mac/PC, plus wireless* interaction with iOS mobile devices and Roland’s free piano apps. Maybe you’ll try the Air Performer app, which lets you jam along with favourite songs through the F-130R onboard sound system and adjust the pitch/tempo to suit. Or perhaps you’ll boost your technique, knowledge and theory skills with Piano Partner. With the Roland F-130R, the Apple App Store is your oyster.
*Wireless communication requires the Roland WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter (sold separately) and a wireless LAN access point with an Internet connection.
