Grand Piano Sound
The HP-203 features Roland’s finest 88-key piano sound, featuring true-to-life piano resonance and individual multi-samples for every key. The HP-203 is touch responsive to the subtlest pressure and nuance — from the deepest, most powerful bass to the most delicate highs.
PHA II keyboard with Escapement
For the most authentic acoustic grand piano feel, the HP-203 is equipped with the new PHA II keyboard with Escapement. This amazing new keyboard technology offers the same natural response as a grand piano, with a heavier touch in the lower range and lighter touch in the upper, and with lighter resistance on pianissimo passages and stronger resistance on fortissimo just like a well-maintained acoustic grand. It even faithfully reproduces the escapement “click feel” of a grand-piano action.
Continuous Damper Pedal
The HP-203 offers seamless continuous damper pedal control, allowing you to obtain the perfect amount of damping or attenuation at all times. Experience the most realistic and expressive piano performance possible.
File Playback via USB
The HP-203 can play songs by itself —ideal for parties and gatherings. Simply import a Standard MIDI File via USB and enjoy as the HP-203 plays the music automatically. Whether in a lounge or living room, hotel or concert hall, the HP-203 will bring any environment to life. The USB Host port also supports WAV file types, and you can actually transpose the audio in real time.
*Note: While the HP-203 can play songs automatically, it does not have the player-piano-type “moving keys” feature.
Play and Sing Along
More than just a great piano, the HP-203 can also play back audio CDs from an optional USB CD drive (commercially available) for play-along fun. There’s even a Center Cancel feature for minimizing pre-recorded vocals so you can play and sing along to your favorite CDs. There are also 65 internal songs.
The HP-203 is built into an attractive, elegant cabinet with front legs that enhance the HP-203’s authentic look. Adding to the appeal are Roland’s gorgeous finishes: choose between Mahogany and high-gloss Satin Black.
Holder (for External CD drive) DH-01
