Grand Piano Sound
The flagship HP207 features Roland’s finest 88-key piano sound, comprising individual multi-samples for every key and true-to-life piano resonance. The HP-207 is touch responsive to the subtlest pressure and nuance — from the deepest, most powerful bass to the most delicate highs.
PHA II Ivory Feel with Escapement and Natural Key sides
The HP-207 incorporates Roland’s PHA II “Ivory Feel” keyboard with Escapement. This amazing new keyboard technology reproduces the feel of ivory for the natural keys and ebony for the sharps. The natural keys have a 2-piece structure, which consists of base- and surface-material layers. This reproduces the stability and comfort of an acoustic-piano keyboard. This next-generation keyboards feature a redesigned progressive hammer-action mechanism for a natural touch response from pianissimo to fortissimo. In addition, the HP-series’ acclaimed Escapement feature comes on the HP-207, recreating the “click feel” of an acoustic grand.
“Piano Designer” Sound Customization
For those who wish to customize the HP-207’s piano sound to suit their personal taste, the Piano Designer feature allows friendly access to a variety of tone-shaping controls. Create your perfect custom sound, and save it for instant recall.

Whether in a lounge or living room, hotel or concert hall, the HP-207 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-207 can play songs automatically, it does not have the player-piano-type “moving keys” feature.

More than just a great piano, the HP-207 can also play back audio CDs from an optional USB CD drive (commercially available) for play-along fun.

The HP-207 is built into an attractive, elegant cabinet with front legs and a Half Key-Cover that slides out to cover the front-panel controls.
