Grand Sound, Compact Size

The DP-90 is a new-generation piano that plays like a grand, fits easily into any room, and carries a comfortable price tag. With its SuperNATURAL Piano engine, inherited from our top models, the DP-90 delivers truly stunning sound. It’s also a joy to play, thanks to its Ivory Feel-S keyboard with Escapement, which provides natural touch and response. Two attractive cabinet finishes — Medium Cherry and Satin Black — let to choose the look that blends best with your home’s interior.

Enhance Your Learning with Piano Partner for iPad

The DP-90 is compatible with Roland’s Piano Partner, a free iPad app that provides a fresh, interactive way to build your piano skills. Working together with the instrument’s onboard songs and features, the fun app inspires and helps you learn more about music and playing the piano. You can connect your iPad and DP-90 wirelessly over your home network with the Roland WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter (sold separately), or via a USB cable with Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit. Piano Partner is available on the Apple App Store.

SuperNATURAL Piano Engine

The DP-90 is powered by our groundbreaking SuperNATURAL Piano engine, which provides perfect, natural sound that performs and responds like a grand piano. Tonal color changes seamlessly in response to your touch, and note decay is natural and organic; the decaying sound not only decreases in volume, but also gradually changes color to a softer tone. Each note has its own character, true to a real acoustic grand.

Soundboard Behavior Modeling

Our newly developed Soundboard Behavior function emulates the natural characteristics of string vibrations on the soundboard, and is not found on conventional sampling pianos. Based on the soundboard modeling in the award-winning V-Piano, this powerful technology enhances sound clarity, even when many notes are played simultaneously.

Ivory Feel-S Keyboard

The DP-90 is equipped with the Ivory Feel-S Keyboard with Escapement. With the same progressive hammer action and escapement as the top-line PHA III, it offers unmatched expression and performance authenticity, capable of transforming the most subtle finger nuances into sound. It also provides incredibly fast key-repetition action. The surface of each white key replicates the unique appearance and comfortable feel of real ivory keys. In addition, the keys are constructed of a one-piece proprietary material that provides excellent moisture absorbency.

Small Footprint, Big Sound

With its sleek and modern furniture-like design, the DP-90 blends beautifully and functionally into any home. It features a solid, soft-close safety lid that can be used as a music rest when opened and a flat surface when closed. There are two beautiful finishes to choose from — Medium Cherry and Satin Black — and a built-in speaker cabinet, which creates a dynamic, resonant sound never before heard on similar-sized digital pianos.

Authentic Fortepiano and Harpsichord Tones Onboard

In addition to its selection of onboard grand piano sounds, the DP-90 is equipped with an Early Piano category that contains four fortepiano variations and two harpsichord variations. Masterpieces composed by maestros such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin can be played with the original sounds from the period; the appreciation and understanding of their compositions is heightened when using instruments that were actually used by the composers. You can also play these early piano sounds with built-in historic temperaments, which are ideal to play with other classical instruments.

Built-In Audio/MIDI Recorder with Flexible Control

The built-in recorder lets you capture your performances as audio or MIDI data — a convenient feature for pianists as well as students who want to evaluate their playing. Transpose, Tempo Change, and Center Cancel features can also be applied to the audio data. Recorded audio data can be saved onto external USB Memory, and copied to a computer for making audio CDs or uploading to the Internet.

Ease of Use

The DP-90’s simple and intuitive control panel affords quick and easy access to the numerous features onboard. Its backlit LCD and clean front panel provide an ideal interface for quick access and control, even in dark environments.

Environment-Conscious Design

The DP-90 achieves low power consumption while still delivering high-impact performance. It also features an Auto Off function, which, when activated, automatically switches the power off after a period of inactivity. Inactivity time is selectable from 10 minutes, 30 minutes (default), 240 minutes, and off.
