Also with a 12w x 2 stereo speaker system built-in you no longer need to trail cables to an external amp.
SuperNATURAL Piano Engine
With the inclusion of the SuperNATURAL Piano the Roland FP4F allows you to be as expressive with this digital piano as you can be with an acoustic. Faithfully replicating a world-class acoustic grand piano, this engine gives you real tonal colouring and seamless variation that responds naturally to your touch.
Ivory Feel-G Keyboard
The SuperNATURAL Piano has been paired up with Roland’s Ivory Feel-G Keyboard to not only give you the sound of an acoustic but also the feel. This inclusion gives the keys the functionality, appearance and texture of a keyboard from Roland’s top end pianos to give the Roland FP4F amazing expression.
Expression doesn’t end with the keyboard and sound engine. The Roland FP4F comes supplied with a damper pedal (DP-10) for continuous pedalling, though a triple pedal (RPU-3) is available separately to give you the experience of a grand piano.
The Roland FP4F gives you a host of options for virtual accompaniment with its Session Partner feature. Play with a backing band recorded by professional musicians, have the FP4F play chords and ad-libs or even play full backing for vocalists. It even has musical metronomes to help you with your timing.
The Roland FP4F Digital Pianos USB connectivity allows you store recorded performances and settings as well as expand the library of backing tracks further as you can load SMF and WAV files to a USB storage device and play them through the piano. You can even plug in an external USB CD drive (such as the Roland CD-01A) to play music straight from a CD. On top of this the pianos Tempo change lets you adjust the speed of a track without affecting pitch and Center Cancel allows you to minimise vocals and lead instruments.

If you’re looking for a digital piano that has that superb grand piano sound that is unmistakable, and which sounds better than keyboards twice its price, then you’ve got to get this beauty!
I have tried many digital pianos, including Yamaha, Casio and Roland, and the Roland FP4 is the one I currently use. The sound is sampled from a grand piano, and though they don’t say it is from a specific brand, I would not be surprised if it was from a Steinway. I have tried Steinway grands B and D size, as well as Yamaha grands etc. The most impressive thing about the sound is that it sounds like a high quality grand that it is from. Compared to many Yamaha digital pianos which doesn’t have the richness of sound, the Roland FP4 and even more so, the FP4F has this quality of sound that makes you want to play and just focus on your expression, and it just sounds like it’s a concert grand piano, with all the beauty of its tone, which is a rare thing to find in digital pianos.
The next most important thing, which is closely related, is the touch. The touch is excellent on the Roland FP4F and is something that I have read about even before I tried the FP4F for the first time. When I tried it, I just enjoyed playing on it, and the touch felt real and expressive. The keyboard is the ‘deluxe Ivory Feel-G Keyboard with Escapement’ Progressive Hammer Action keyboard which means it has responsiveness, and a genuine feel and this is important too.
In conclusion, the Roland FP-4F is a digital piano for you if you love a real and authentic piano sound that sounds just like a quality grand piano that is unmistakable the moment you hear it. I was totally surprised and pleased that Roland was able to produce this quality of piano sound that to me is better and way more natural than the V piano which costs many times the price.
