Advanced sound and touch features

The HPi-7 incorporates Roland's latest stereo-sampled piano sounds, for superb piano playing realism. Its Damper Resonance reproduces the rich, "free-vibration" resonance sound of the strings obtained when playing an acoustic piano with the damper pedal pressed. The HPi-7 also produces other realistic acoustic piano nuances, including Lid, String Resonance*, and Hammer Response**. In addition, its new velocity-sensitive Key-off Resonance piano tones re-create the subtle sound nuance of the damper touching the strings upon key release. The touch settings let you adjust the key touch to suit your finger strength.
* String Resonance accurately reproduces the subtle and varied sympathetic string vibration caused on an acoustic piano when a key is pressed while other keys are already being held down.
** Hammer Response delivers the slightly slower hammer movement and sound characteristic of a grand piano when played softly.

DigiScore notation displayed on the music rest

The DigiScore LCD screen is built right into the music rest for easy viewing. It displays the notation of all internal songs, of commercially available Standard MIDI Files, of music files you download off the internet, or of your own recorded performances. A "Bouncing ball" on the staff helps keep time visually as you play, while the DigiScore "turns the pages" for you. It's perfect for lessons. The HPi-7's wider display lets you split the screen, to set the metronome while looking at the notation as it plays back, or to show the notation and the lyrics at the same time.

Visual Lesson: your own personal tutor

The Visual Lesson feature acts as your personal interactive music tutor. It has three courses. Each of these includes independent exercises, 10 songs with variable levels, and Practice, Check, and Review screens. Visual Lesson also works with all internal songs, as well as Standard MIDI Files ―so there's literally no limit to the number of songs you can use.

Visual Lesson -Three Visual Lesson Courses

Beginner's Course for practicing with right hand only
Repertoir Course for mastering your favorite songs
Challenge Course for checking your playing skills

Visual Lesson -Practice Screen

The Notes you play appear instantly on the onscreen notation.

Visual Lesson -Check Screen

When you finish playing, the HPi-7 grades the accuracy of your pitch and rhythm, and provides simple onscreen advise

Visual Lesson -Review Screen

Areas of your performance that need extra attention are "marked" right onscreen. Incorrect pitch is marked in red. Incorrect rhythm is marked blue. Extra notes are marked in green. It's truly interactive!

The ideal instrument for creating teaching materials

The HPi-7's Edit function lets you add optional finger numbering right into the notation, change the length of the song, or edit any note in the music files. And it's easy, because you can do it all while looking at the music. Also, your music file notation can be saved as a bitmap file, which you can print out using your PC.

Pianist Feature for more piano lesson enjoyment

The Pianist feature creates automatic accompaniment in 35 music styles, from classical to jazz to bossa nova. It makes lessons more fun, and helps develop a sense of rhythm. And it's great for making music files.

Even more educational Wonderland fun for kids

Roland's popular Wonderland section, now with a Flash Card on the HPi-7LE, offers 8 educational games designed to help children have fun while learning about music. Kids can choose from 8 entertaining metronome sounds to help encourage them in their lessons. These include: electronic sound, pendulum metronome, human voice, dog, and cat.

Easy connectivity and more

The HPi-7's connectors are conveniently located at the front of the instrument for easy access. It has two headphone jacks, and MIDI and USB ports. The Mic Input with Echo is great for Karaoke. There's also a handy hook for the headphones.
