Enjoy a rich, colorful pallet of musical instruments and sounds packed into one keyboard. The KR-107 starts with an authentic and detailed piano that simulates every nuance of a true grand, including the sound of the hammers as they strike the strings and the sounds made as the keys are released. Then explore the hundreds of other sounds onboard the KR-107, including orchestral instruments, guitars, basses, drum kits, and ultra-realistic organs that utilize Roland’s acclaimed tonewheel-modeling technology.
The KR-107 features Roland’s finest Progressive Hammer Action keyboard with Escapement, which reproduces the feel of a true grand piano with firm, weighty touch in the lower registers, lighter response in the upper registers, and the distinctive “click” (escapement) sensation that’s produced when a grand piano’s keys are played. In addition to the KR-107’s adjustable key weight, a Hammer Response function is also included.
The factory piano sounds provided with the KR-107 are stunning in realism and playability, but if you’d like to customize the sounds, the “Piano Designer” feature allows you to do just that. Make adjustments to the piano’s string, damper, and key-off resonance, then save your new pianos for future recall.
This handy feature allows two players to perform simultaneously on the same keyboard. It’s as easy as pressing the front-panel Super Tones button followed by the Twin Piano button on the touchscreen. Four hands of fun!
With its six high-quality internal speakers and amplification system built in, the KR-107 delivers a clear, powerful sound. You’ll be amazed at how rich the sound is, especially when the Advanced 3D spatial effects and Dynamic Emphasis feature (which adds clarity and liveliness) are engaged.
The KR-107 is equipped with a color touchscreen for friendly, visual navigation. Most operations can be carried out easily just by touching the screen. And if you want to display your musical scores or lessons on an even bigger screen for group viewing, the KR-107 comes with external VGA and video outputs for connecting to a separate computer monitor or TV.
DigiScore brings new musical possibilities and enjoyment to playing and practicing the piano. The “Touch The Notes” feature lets you actually touch a note (or series of notes) onscreen for instant audible playback. Explore the handy “Auto-Sync DigiScore” feature, which scrolls the onscreen sheet music in sync with your performance. No more frantic page-turning as you play.
The KR-107’s “Visual Lesson” feature makes practice fun and effective. You can use this tool to score the results of your performances and find out which notes have been played differently than those indicated in the notation.
Songs & Styles
You won’t believe how much music can come from one instrument. The KR-107’s library of onboard Music Styles spans a wide variety of genres, from pop to rock, jazz to gospel, country, and more, all with an incredibly realistic human sound and feel; many of the internal drum and percussion patterns were recorded by master session drummers using Roland’s amazing V-Drums. Bring your next party or performance to life with the dynamic big band, Latin, contemporary or classic favorites built into this instrument.
Wonderland is a colorful learning environment for listening to a variety of instruments and performances, and for playing interactive musical games. Great for students or anyone interested in expanding their musical knowledge.
Visual Music Assistant
There are over 500 Visual Music Assistant songs onboard the KR-107, each with a variety of preset variations, for professional-sounding intelligent accompaniment. Just play a chord, and the accompaniment follows your lead! Settings are displayed in a manner that’s easy to grasp.
Color .BMP Export
Musical notation that you view or create on the KR-107 can be exported to a computer as a color .BMP file. You can also take advantage of the KR-107’s Direct-To-Printer feature, which allows you to save your notation to a USB memory key, and plug it directly into a printer equipped with a “USB Host” feature for quick output. No computer required.
The KR-107 offers a microphone-input jack for karaoke sing-along with Standard MIDI Files. You can also add harmony to your singing, or apply a variety of vocal effects, such as Voice Transformer to dramatically change the sound of your voice.
For the ultimate in entertainment convenience, you can control many of the KR-107’s features from the wireless remote control (included). Select song styles and sounds, change volume and tempo, and more from this handy remote.
Three USB ports are built into the KR-107. One port is dedicated as USB-MIDI interface, providing convenient communication between the KR-107 and computers. Another port is provided for storing and loading songs, Standard MIDI Files, audio (.WAV files), notation, and more via optional USB Flash Memory. The third port is for use with Roland’s optional USB-equipped FD-01A floppy disk drive.
