The KR-3: everything a piano should be

The KR-3 features Roland's best sound technology, for the world's finest and most realistic piano tones. And its new Weighted Hammer Action Keyboard offers an authentic acoustic piano touch, faithfully delivering every nuance of your fingers. In addition, the KR-3 incorporates a whole range of automatic accompaniment features: 136 up-to-date onboard music styles ensure the ideal accompaniment for any type of music you want to play. You'll feel the KR-3's power and presence, as if you're performing in your very own band. Plus, to ensure that your piano fun is endless, you can also access even more music styles via the onboard disk drive.

Music Assistant

The “Music Assistant” is an intelligent help function that assists you in setting up the auto-accompaniment which best suits the particular song or style you want to play. You simply identify the type of song you want, and the Music Assistant's auto-setup feature chooses a music style that suits that song perfectly. Play a chord, and the accompaniment follows your lead on the melody. You can also change the accompaniment to different musical styles such as Latin or jazz, and add fancy introductions and endings to the accompaniment, for an exciting and rousing performance. With a host of other accompaniment functions, the KR-3 makes everything easy: you'll be playing like never before the moment you bring it home.

A versatile instrument for creative musicians

The KR-3 offers unrivalled expressiveness and ease of playing. With its 88-note keyboard, the beautiful sound of a fine acoustic piano, and an extensive variety of other instrument sounds including guitar, saxophone, strings and others, this is the ideal instrument for creative musicians. It also greatly expands the horizon of each sound with built-in effects, including chorus and reverb for piano, rotary for organ, and much more.

Fun-to-use SMF music files and sequencer

The KR-3 is fitted with a 16-track sequencer with extensive editing features: you can record your own songs and add additional tracks as required, or mute any Standard MIDI File track in order to play it yourself along with the backing track. Your lessons and practice have never been so entertaining. When using music files that contain lyrics, the words to the songs can be shown on the LCD display for karaoke singing.

Easy-to-read backlit LCD display

Using the KR-3 couldn't be easier. Its centralized backlit LCD panel lets you know exactly where you want to go at all times. Sophisticated icons and intuitive menus make navigation a breeze-and make the KR-3 one of the most enjoyable instruments you'll ever play.

Elegant exterior

The KR-3's gorgeous cabinet with sliding keyboard cover is a fine addition to any room's décor. Its elegant mahogany finish adds a touch of class to your piano performance.
