The most realistic piano sound and touch available

The KR-7 incorporates the best of Roland’s sound technology, and offers the world’s finest and most realistic piano tones—which can even simulate a piano’s string resonance! This is an instrument that sounds just like a full concert acoustic grand. It feels like one too. Its authentic touch comes from Roland’s unique Progressive Hammer Action Keyboard with Escapement, which employs real hammers rather than springs. The keyboard has a realistic touch resistance, with a lighter response when playing soft pianissimo passages and a stronger response on fortissimo passages. It also provides a lighter touch in the upper range and a heavier touch in the lower range. The KR-7 delivers each delicate nuance of your fingers perfectly and naturally, just like an acoustic grand.

Authentic instrument tones and exciting auto-accompaniment features

In addition to its realistic piano tones the KR-7 offers more than 600 other lifelike instrument sounds. Whatever sort of instru-ment you’d like to play—stringed, wind, synth or percussion from anywhere in the world—you can. Do you need piano accompani-ment? A symphony? Or a rock band backing you? It’s simple with the KR-7. Special expressive tones, backing styles and auto-accompaniment features make you feel like you’re playing right in the middle of a real live band. Best of all, you can quickly and easily access all these features through the large LCD touchscreen.

Powerful new speaker system for “Grand Sound”

Developed especially for the KR-7, this new speaker system features an ideal balance between the upward-pointing tweeters and the full-range speakers in independent enclosures facing you under the keyboard. In combination with the high-grade amps and high-quality output, the new system results in dynamic, vibrant sound of great depth and exceptional presence—the same presence and rich flow of sound from both above and below the soundboard as you experience when you sit down to play a grand piano. The KR-7 also incorporates an easy onscreen equalizer function for shaping the sound to suit the music or the room you are playing in.

Enhanced, easy-to-use lesson features

The KR-7 comes loaded with fun new features to back up your piano practice sessions. The main attraction is the “DigiScore” function, which displays the score for the song right on its large screen. The KR-7 also offers an improved “Rhythm Partner” metronome function. Displayed with a “Bouncing LED” on the panel, this function lets you choose the KR-7’s percussion and drum backup rhythms, providing the right beat and more realism for the piece you are playing, and helping you develop a natural sense of rhythm and timing.

“Wonderland:” Fun, interactive practice for children

The KR-7 contains an “edu-tainment” feature called “Wonderland” designed specifically for children. With large, animated onscreen graphics—and a variety of instruments and voices such as guitar, trumpet, drums, barking dog and locomotive—children can enjoy fun interactive lessons, and six exciting musical and note-guessing games to help them develop their ear for music and their sense of rhythm.

Fully-adjustable music stand

Great care went into crafting the KR-7’s music stand with handy clip for securing music books and scores. It is fully adjustable, so you can change its angle, or move it backward or forward for the most comfortable reading and playing posture.
