Stylishly compact design

With its lightweight, compact body and stylish, contemporary design, the FP-2 is an attractive addition to any room you play it in. Its sleek silver finish, refined lines and powerful onboard speakers with vibrant, responsive sound make it the ideal piano for your home. But it’s just as well suited for the stage or private studio. It looks and sounds great anywhere!

Rich, realistic piano sound

The FP-2 incorporates Roland’s finest stereo-sampled concert grand piano sounds, for the most realistic piano playing experience possible. The 64-voice sound engine delivers the same breadth of expression and natural dynamic richness, right down to the most delicate nuance. So notes in the upper range are clear and sparkling, while notes in the lower range are powerful, vigorous and resonant. The FP-2 gives you the sort of unparalleled expression and outstanding piano sound that are only possible with Roland.

Expressive, natural piano touch

Roland specially developed a new Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard for the FP-2's compact body. This full-sized, 88-note keyboard has a realistic touch resistance that provides a lighter response on pianissimo passages and a heavier response on fortissimo passages. It also features a dynamic touch weight variation—with a heavier touch in the lower range and lighter touch in the upper range—faithfully simulating the natural feel and playing performance of an acoustic grand piano. The FP-2 will deliver each delicate nuance of your fingers.

Unique Sound Control with 4-band EQ

The FP-2 is Roland's first digital piano with Sound Control, an easy-to-use feature that instantly enhances the lower register of the piano sounds for a deeper, richer tone. A 4-band digital equalizer is also available, making it possible to precisely tailor the onboard piano sounds to your liking. It’s perfect for professional pianists on stage—or even for use in a recording studio.

Play along with the Session Partner

The FP-2 features the Session Partner, a function that has been wildly popular on the FP-3 and FP-5 models. This function provides instant backing in a variety of musical styles, such as ballads, jazz and Latin. It has 80 realistic rhythm and accompaniment patterns including 12 new styles. You can choose to play along with a full accompaniment of chords, bass and drums. You can even program your own chord progressions. It’s ideal for composing or for drafting a performance.

Lots of other features

Try the metronome. Use the convenient 3-track recorder to save and playback your performance. Connect to a computer via USB and use it as a sound source for sequencing or as a high-quality controller. The piano is GM2-compliant too, so you can use it with Standard MIDI Files. Writing music or just sitting down to play has never been easier or more fun.
