Powerful, convenient but compact and elegant digital piano
The Roland DP-90e adds to the popular DP range of pianos. This range is perfectly designed for modern life, by combining the convenience of a digital piano, with Roland’s cutting edge sound, keyboard technologies, and performance features, in very slim, yet incredibly elegant cabinet.
This new model raises the bar in every area, whilst retaining the many strengths and appealing aesthetics of the range.
Stunning, authentic, piano sounds with enhanced dynamic features
At the heart of any great piano is a selection of great piano sounds. Those featured on the DP-90e are based on Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology. This provides the smoothest, most expressive response, with long, natural decay, and dynamic tonal changes.
On the DP-90e, this is further enhanced by a new, Dynamic Harmonic feature. This recreates the powerful sound, and rich harmonics of a piano when played Fortissimo.
For those who like to fine-tune the chosen piano sound, the new Individual Note Voicing feature provides the ideal set of tools. With these, the user can adjust pitch, volume and even tonal character of every single note.
New, enhanced PHA-4 ivory feel keyboard action
Great sounds are nothing without a superb keyboard to bridge the player’s performance and the expressive onboard sounds. Here, Roland has raised its own high standards with the new, PHA-4 ivory feel keyboard. This provides an ivory like key-top, with natural, graded weighting, and escapement action, translating the subtle nuance of your performances perfectly.
Headphone 3D Ambience
One of the biggest strengths of the digital piano is its ability to be used for quiet practice with headphones. Usually, this convenience is the expense of sound quality. A piano is intended to be played in a natural space, and natural ambience is a key component of its sound as a result- something that headphones remove.
The DP-90e rectifies this with a new Headphone 3D Ambience feature. This recreates a 3D acoustic space via headphones, making the sound richer and more natural.
Built-in songs and onboard recorder
Alongside its pedigree as an incredibly authentic sounding digital piano, the DP-90e has several features that equip it well as a family, ‘home’ piano, to enable productive practice. There is a library of inbuilt songs and etudes from Hanon and Czerny to practice with. Plus, a metronome and performance recorder enables the player to practice to regular rhythms, and record it to review later. In addition, with an additional USB memory stick, performances can be recorded as audio and shared with others.
Roland has also developed some great iOS apps specifically for use with its own products. The DP-90e can be used with the excellent Piano Partner app, which provides a selection of fun practice exercises, along with DigiScore functionality. With the optional Roland USB Wireless key, the piano will connect to this app wirelessly, too. It is also compatible with Roland’s Air Performer app, which allows you to play along with favourite songs or tracks.
The Roland DP-90e is a truly modern digital piano. It combines the elegant looks of an acoustic piano (in compact form), with cutting-edge sounds that recreate the organic, expressive nature of an acoustic instrument, and provides the best possible keyboard action for exploiting its dynamic and expressive design.
The new piano designer app for iOS and Android
Roland have released Piano Designer for both iOS and Android platforms. This intuitive app gives you the power to tweak your piano sound to your exact specification! Giving you access to control all the elements that naturally shape the piano's sound, this free app also includes many settings that were crafted by world-leading piano technicians!
