Intelligent Full-Keyboard Chord Recognition (Pianist Mode)

Make incredible music with the F-120R’s newly developed full-keyboard chord- recognition engine, which reacts to the pressing level of the damper pedal. Any chord you play can be recognized in real time, allowing the auto-accompaniment to follow what you play. You can play along with sophisticated rhythm accompaniments without changing your piano playing style.

SuperNATURAL Piano

The F-120R incorporates Roland's SuperNATURAL Piano engine, a cutting-edge technology derived from the flagship V-Piano, as well as 88-key stereo multisampling. SuperNATURAL Piano brings a new level of authentic sound and natural performance to the digital domain. Roland relentlessly analyzed the complex, ever-changing characteristics of concert grand pianos, faithfully capturing and reproducing the tonal variations based on the velocity of each keystroke. The result is an incredibly expressive and authentic sound that blurs the line between digital and acoustic.

Ivory Feel-G Keyboard

The F-120R is outfitted with an Ivory Feel-G keyboard, featuring Progressive Hammer Action with Escapement, inherits the functions, appearance, and texture of keyboards found on Roland’s flagship pianos. Thanks to the combination of the latest sensor technologies and the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, the F-120R offers expression and performance that rivals that of high-end pianos.

EZ User Interface

With its comfortable and clean user interface, the F-120R makes it fast and easy to select one of the 60 internal rhythm accompaniments and 180-plus internal classic songs. Over 40 additional tones are easily selectable from the panel too.

USB Memory

Additional rhythms, songs, and wav files can be played via the built-in USB memory port — a convenient way to build your own personal library of play-along songs.

Slim Cabinet Design

Compact, stylish and only 30 cm deep, the F-120R can be placed anywhere in your room. The unique folding-lid design covers the keyboard safely when closed, and serves as a music rest when raised. The F-120R is available in three beautiful finishes: Polished Red, Polished Ebony, and Polished White.

Skill-Building Features

More than a great piano, the F-120R is equipped with features to enhance your skills. The Twin-Piano feature, for example, is designed for side-by-side lessons or performances with a teacher or duet partner. It enables the keyboard to be split into two parts, each of which covers the same octaves. This makes it easy to see and hear when practicing beside a teacher. In the same way, the left and right pedals can be reassigned to act as damper pedals for either side of the split keyboard. The F-120R also has a built-in metronome and recorder, so you can practice with a perfect time reference, and record and listen back to your performances.

Digital Advantage

With the F-120R, you can play day or night, year after year, and enjoy perfect sound and performance. Since the instrument is fully digital, there are no strings to tune. No need to worry about temperature changes or aging strings. And since it’s digital, the F-120R lets you play through its built-in speakers, its external output, or privately through headphones. The built-in external input lets you connect an audio player for play-along fun.
