Premium Piano Performance for Compact Living Spaces
If you live in an apartment or condo and want to bring a quality piano into your life, the F-130R is for you. Roland’s acclaimed sound, action, and technology features deliver premium piano performance in a size that fits easily in tight spaces. The F-130R’s understated-yet-elegant look is ideal for modern living, and your choice of White or Contemporary Black finishes allow you to perfectly match the instrument to your style and decor. Functioning as a music rack when open, the F-130R’s unique lid design closes to completely cover the keyboard, providing a low-profile appearance when the piano is not in use.
Roland’s Leading Technologies Offer a High-End Piano Experience
With superior build quality and innovative technology features that far exceed other instruments in its price class, the F-130R is a serious musical instrument that will last you through years of musical growth and piano enjoyment. Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine delivers the rich, complex sound of an acoustic grand, providing a truly incredible playing experience. The newly developed PHA-4 Standard Keyboard inherits the functions, appearance, and Ivory Feel texture of keyboards found in our flagship instruments, and includes the very latest sensing technology to take full advantage of SuperNATURAL Piano’s enormous tonal range.
Intelligent Accompaniment Puts You in Command of a Full Band
With its onboard rhythm function, the F-130R gives you the ability to play and practice music along with a beautiful backing ensemble. The rhythms are incredibly easy to use, providing intelligent backing that automatically follows the chords you play. 72 different rhythm styles cover a diverse variety of musical genres, from rock and jazz to Latin, reggae, modern electronic styles, and many others. In addition to the fun of practicing and performing with a full-band sound, the rhythms help build your timing skills in a way that’s far more engaging than the standard metronome function. Playing with rhythms also offers a great opportunity to explore making music with the F-130R’s generous selection of non-piano sounds, such as organ, guitar, brass, synths, and more.
Use Your Favorite Apple iOS Devices to Have More Fun with the Piano
Roland’s free piano apps give you the ability to use your favorite iOS mobile devices with the F-130R. The Air Performer app lets you play along with favorite songs in the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch wirelessly* through the F-130R’s sound system, with independent control over the pitch and tempo of song playback. This allows you to adjust the key or speed of popular songs to suit your abilities on the piano, or match your vocal range if you like to sing while playing. Piano Partner for iPad provides a fresh, interactive way to build your piano skills, with integrated applications that work together with the F-130R’s onboard sounds, songs, and rhythms to inspire and help you learn more about music and playing. Piano Partner also includes DigiScore Lite, which displays the F-130R’s onboard songs as sheet music on your iPad. Available from the Apple App Store, these apps make it easy to use today’s mobile technology to increase your piano enjoyment.
*Wireless communication requires the Wireless USB Adaptor (Roland WNA1100-RL or ONKYO UWF-1) and a wireless LAN access point with an Internet connection.
Enhanced Learning and Enjoyment Through Digital Technology
The powerful digital technologies inside the F-130R make it simple to bring the joy of music into your busy life. A digital piano never needs tuning and always sounds perfect, eliminating the annual costs that come with regular maintenance for an acoustic piano. In addition, you can easily adjust the volume of the piano’s speakers, an essential feature for apartment and condo living. Another major benefit of a digital piano is the ability to turn off the speakers entirely and use headphones to play anytime without disturbing others; the F-130R’s unique Headphones 3D Ambience effect greatly enriches the piano experience during these private sessions, making it feel as though the sound is emanating from the instrument itself. The F-130R also includes numerous digital convenience features for practice and fun, such as a built-in metronome, a recorder for capturing and sharing performances, computer connectivity via USB, and a Twin Piano mode that splits the keyboard so that two people can play side by side in the same ranges.
