Stunning, Streamlined Cabinet

The LX-10’s polished ebony and satin-black hybrid finish beautifully complement each other. The look is strong and bold, yet the depth of the piano is just 45.3cm. The fallboard’s interior has a mirror finish that reflects the keyboard and moving fingers in the style of a grand piano, bringing a sense of visual enjoyment to your playing. The fallboard can be used as a music rest when opened. It closes slowly and gently, combining both safety and aesthetic grace. In addition to its beautiful appearance, the lid also shapes the piano’s overall tonal character. It can be closed and opened, which allows the lid to vary the tone from mellow to bright. Cables can be neatly hidden in the rear of the piano, allowing the LX-10 to be easily placed against a wall. It can even be set up in the center of a room since the rear of the piano has an attractive appearance.

Full Concert-Grand Piano Sounds

From its powerful low range to its brilliant high range, the sounds of the LX-10 were created by painstakingly sampling world-class grand pianos, key by key, resulting in a stunning 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano engine. Roland’s engineers meticulously captured the myriad sounds and resonances of each instrument, including the duplex scale resonances that emphasize string behavior and the brilliance of the mid and high range. The end result is stunning, but that’s only the beginning. Various types of resonances, hammer noise, and other detailed features can be individually adjusted as desired with the Piano Designer feature. With its 128 polyphonic voices, the LX-10 ensures perfect performance, even during heavy damper pedal usage or during fast passages.

Natural, Rich Sound with Built-In Speakers

The LX-10 is equipped with a specially designed, high-quality speaker system. By taking advantage of the piano’s vertical cabinet chamber, and installing six speakers in optimal positions, the LX-10 is able to produce sounds that emanate from the entire instrument, filling the room with rich, resonant sound.

Pedals that Respond to Technique and Emotion

The LX-10’s damper and soft pedals react to the slightest push. The pedals respond naturally and authentically according to every nuance. You can subtly alter the sound, for example, at the moment when the “dampers” make contact with the “strings,” which occurs in acoustic grand pianos. Briefly releasing the pedal then depressing it again allows the strings to keep vibrating, and lets the dampers maintain the resonance.

The Touch of a High-Quality Grand Piano

The LX-10 boasts Roland’s acclaimed PHA II (Progressive Hammer Action II) "Ivory Feel” keyboard, which reproduces the authentic feel of ivory for the natural keys and ebony for the sharps. Its moisture-absorbent materials used to recreate the natural properties and feel of ivory and ebony provide just the right comfort while playing. The white keys recreate the two-piece key construction of grand-piano keys (base material and surface material). The result is not only beautiful, but one that meets high-level performance demands. The natural touch, produced merely by the weight of the hammers against the keys with no springs, faithfully recreates a smooth, “sinking” feeling during soft playing and a strong response during loud playing. The LX-10 also features an escapement mechanism for each key, which recreates the “click feel” characteristic of grand-piano keys.

Useful Lesson Functions

The LX-10 is equipped with a variety of friendly lesson functions, such as an internal metronome for developing steady time, and a three-track recorder for listening back to performances and checking them objectively. In addition, the Twin Piano function splits the keyboard into two identical zones, letting two people sit side by side and play in the same range. Expand your repertoire by using these skill-building tools!

Learn and Play Your Favorite Songs

A library of famous classical and jazz pieces is built into the LX-10. In addition, the LX-10 can play back a variety of songs*1 stored on media*2 such as audio CDs*3, music data and audio data on USB memory sticks. When playing the installed songs or music data, the LX-10 allows the key signature and tempo to be changed, and the left and right hand parts to be soloed or muted separately. As a result, you can practice with one hand while listening to the other hand’s part. Since the keys and tempos of music from audio CDs and WAV files can be changed independently, you can enjoy learning and playing along with your favorite songs. Add as many new songs as you wish from audio CDs and/or music data.

*1 Compatible Formats: Standard MIDI Files and WAV files
*2 USB memory, CD-ROM, and floppy disk; optional USB CD drive (CD-01A) required for CD-ROM playback; optional USB floppy disk drive (FD-01A) required for floppy disk use.
*3 Optional USB CD drive (CD-01A) required for playback.

No Tuning Required! One of the Many Merits of the All-Digital LX-10

Since the LX-10 is a digital instrument with no strings inside, tuning is unnecessary. Day or night and in any climate, you can enjoy playing with consistent, perfect sound. And you can play without disturbing others, since the LX-10 provides volume control and headphone output. Compared to an acoustic piano, the LX-10 is lightweight and compact, making it easy to change the position of the piano whenever you want to. These are just features that make Roland digital pianos a joy to play, maintain, and transport.
