Great Grand-Piano Sound

The HP204 features Roland’s finest 88-key piano sound, featuring true-to-life piano resonance and individual multisamples for every key. It’s touch responsive to the subtlest pressure and nuance — from the deepest, most powerful bass to the most delicate highs.

Progressive Hammer Action II

The HP204 is equipped with an authentic-feeling PHA II Keyboard. This next-generation keyboard features a redesigned progressive hammer-action mechanism for a natural touch response from pianissimo to fortissimo. In addition, Roland’s acclaimed Escapement “key click” feature comes standard on the HP204.

Omnidirectional Sound System

Unlike traditional direct-emitting loudspeakers, the HP204 employs a unique audio system that allows diffused omnidirectional sound emission. The player and the listener perceive the sound just as they would from a real acoustic grand. Volume issues are a thing of the past; you can simply adjust the volume of the internal sound system up or down to suit the environment.

File Playback via USB

The HP204 can play songs by itself* — an ideal for parties and gatherings. Simply import a Standard MIDI File via USB and enjoy as the keyboard plays the music automatically. Whether in a lounge or living room, hotel or concert hall, the HP204 will bring any environment to life. WAV files can be played via USB as well.

*Note: The HP204 does not have the player-piano-type “moving keys” feature.

CD Connection

More than just a great piano, the HP204 can also play back audio CDs from an optional USB-CD drive (commercially available in market) for play-along fun. There’s even a Center Cancel feature for minimizing pre-recorded vocals so you can sing along with your favorite songs as if you were in the band.

Newly Designed Cabinet

The HP204 is built into an attractive, elegant cabinet with front legs for style and stability. Adding to the appeal are Roland’s gorgeous Rosewood and Light Oak finishes.

Classic Position

The HP204 is built with an attractive half key-cover that slides out to cover the front-panel controls. This feature enhances the real-piano look while also protecting the controls from tampering.
