With the Version 2 software update, the RD-300NX is infused with new Live Sets and flexible sound creation with the RD-NX Editor for iPad

The RD-300NX have been highly acclaimed as the ultimate professional stage pianos thanks to their authentic SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, meticulously modeled SuperNATURAL-based electric pianos, and Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement for true expressiveness. Along with the gorgeous grand pianos and EPs, hundreds of powerful synthesizer sounds are onboard the RD-300NX, plus a variety of multi-effects. Combinations of layers, zones, effects, and various tone parameters can be stored as Live Sets for powerful and expressive sound creation.

RD-NX Editor With the Version 2 software upgrade, 50 new Live Sets have been added, featuring flexible real-time control via sliders or pedals. In addition, the RD-NX Editor for iPad lets you select your favorite Live Set easily, and edit your layers visually on the large screen of the iPad. The RD-NX Editor* can be used wirelessly with Roland’s WNA1100-RL Wireless USB adapter (sold separately).

RD-NX Editor* In order for the iPad to communicate with the RD-300NX using the WNA1100-RL, a wireless LAN access point with an Internet connection is required. The WNA1100-RL is manufactured by NETGEAR, Inc. and distributed by Roland Corporation. NETGEAR is registered trademark of NETGEAR, Inc.

SuperNATURAL Sound

The RD-300NX’s acoustic-piano sounds are derived from Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine. With SuperNATURAL Piano technology, three essential elements are dramatically improved — velocity response, note decay, and key-range behavior — resulting in smooth, natural sound and response. For EP lovers, the RD-300NX contains an E. Piano based on SuperNATURAL technology that meticulously models classic vintage EPs.

New Ivory Feel-G Keyboard

The newly developed Ivory Feel-G keyboard incorporates Roland’s most advanced sensor, escapement mechanism, and Ivory Feel features. The keyboard provides the superior touch and sensitivity of Roland’s flagship keyboards, in a compact and lightweight design... a great benefit for gigging musicians who want to travel light.

Unique Sound Focus

The innovative Sound Focus feature ensures that every note will be heard, even subtle pianissimo passages. Based on SuperNATURAL phase-correction technology, this essential feature ensures that the RD-300NX won’t get lost in the mix, penetrating through walls of sound without compressing or coloring the tone. Players can relax and play naturally, achieving presence onstage without sacrificing dynamics and sound quality.

Bonus Features

The popular One Touch Piano concept from previous RD-series pianos has been carried over the RD-300NX as well. The handy feature provides instant access to essential piano and E. Piano sounds and setups with dedicated one-touch buttons. In addition, the popular and powerful Piano Designer feature has been included in the RD-300NX feature set, letting you build custom pianos quickly and easily on the graphic LCD. And finally, for keyboardists who desire a true grand-piano pedaling experience onstage, an optional RPU-3 triple-pedal unit can be added.
