RD-64: Digital Piano

Grand Piano Sound and Touch in a Compact Instrument

Features

Stage pianos are usually heavy to carry and awkward to transport – hard work when you play regular gigs. The Roland RD-64 is the solution: a pro-spec stage piano with 64-note weighted-action keys, weighing in at around 13Kg. You also get Roland’s sublime Ivory Feel-G keyboard action and SuperNATURAL Piano engine for authentic, playable acoustic piano sounds. It’s all topped off with even more SuperNATURAL-based vintage EPs, plus essential clav and organ tones. The RD-64 is also a flexible MIDI master keyboard, with one-touch setup that unlocks the SuperNATURAL sound potential when used with the INTEGRA-7 sound module or JUPITER-80/-50 synths.

  • Compact, weighted-action 64-note stage piano

  • Vintage electric pianos modelled with extraordinary accuracy
  • 12 versatile tones onboard, including clav and organ sounds
  • 64-note Ivory Feel-G Keyboard with Escapement for a pro-quality piano touch
  • Streamlined, light design that’s easy to carry
  • Two-band EQ and reverb, plus two multi-effects (EFX 1, EFX 2) for each tone category
  • Controller mode* provides MIDI master keyboard functionality, including a dedicated, one-touch setup for controlling SuperNATURAL tones in the INTEGRA-7 sound module and JUPITER-80 / JUPITER-50 synthesizers
  • Pitch bend/mod lever and D-BEAM

Weighs under 13Kg: light, small and easy to move

The RD-64 is a compact, weighted-action stage piano for gigging players. Weighing under 13Kg, the RD-64 fits easily in small vehicles and takes up less space on crowded stages. It’s also ideal for home studios, teaching labs, and mobile composing. The optional CB-61L Carrying Bag gives durable protection when you’re on the move.

SuperNATURAL Piano and other essential sounds

The RD-64 features Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, with inspiring acoustic piano tones plus a selection of expressive electric pianos. The rich, highly-responsive sounds have a wide dynamic range with seamless variations in tone, for pro results on stage or recording in the studio. A number of clav and organ sounds complete the collection of essential sounds that fit a wide range of music styles.

Ivory Feel-G weighted-action keyboard

The 64-note Ivory Feel-G keyboard incorporates Roland’s most advanced sensor technology, escapement mechanism, and Ivory Feel construction. This gives you the superior touch, sensitivity, and appearance of the keyboards found in our flagship 88-note pianos, right down to the key material replicating the texture and moisture-absorbing properties of real ivory and ebony.

Practical effects and convenient EQ

Onboard effects include a high-quality stereo reverb, plus two effects processors tailored to the RD-64’s tone categories. Options include enhancer and damper resonance for grand piano sounds, tremolo and phaser for EPs, and many more, with quick on/off access via easy-to-reach buttons. There’s even a dedicated rotary effect for the organ, with on/off and speed controls for authentic organ performance. A two-band EQ lets you easily shape the sound via two convenient knobs. Stereo RCA inputs allow you to connect a music player for live backing tracks and rehearsing.

Advanced controller keyboard mode

Controller mode* transforms the RD-64 into a powerful master keyboard complete with assignable knobs, buttons, pitch bend/mod lever, and the D-BEAM - perfect for controlling synths and other devices on stage and in the studio. The one-touch SuperNATURAL button automatically assigns the RD-64’s controllers to use the massive expressive potential of the SuperNATURAL tones in Roland’s INTEGRA-7 sound module and JUPITER-80 / JUPITER-50 synthesizers.

Ideal for iPad music production

With a growing number of music apps available, the iPad is becoming increasingly popular for basic music production and on-the-go composing. By plugging in via the optional Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit, the RD-64 becomes a mobile, weighted-action keyboard perfect for use with the iPad giving a luxurious-but-affordable playing experience.
