Roland has announced the RD-SX series, which includes the RD-700SX and RD-300SX digital stage pianos.
The flagship RD-700SX contains two complete 88-note individually sampled grand pianos, plus a suite of authentic electric pianos, virtual tonewheel organs, strings, as well as an entire GM2 sound set. In all, there are 474 internal tones and 14 rhythm sets onboard, which can be expanded further by adding two optional Roland SRX boards. Sounds can be processed through onboard twin multi-effects engines.
Outfitted with a top-grade Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard, the RD-700SX simulates a real grand by providing a lighter touch in the upper range that gets progressively heavier in the lower range.
The RD-700SX is well connected for the gigging professional. Both 1/4-inch and XLR outputs provide compatibility with all popular types of mixers and amplification systems. For performance expression, the RD-700SX has inputs for damper, sostenuto, and soft pedals. Use the tandem MIDI outs and USB I/O for MIDI controller and data backup/exchange. Standard MIDI Files can be loaded and played on the RD with its built-in MIDI File player.
The RD-300SX is a portable stage piano with heavyweight specs. Sharing much in common with the RD-700SX, the RD-300SX features 128-voice polyphony and 88-note individually sampled grand piano waveforms.
The RD-300SX offers a Compact Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard and weighs less than 35 pounds.
