Compact, stylish design
The FP-5’s simple, contemporary form offers the perfect blend of stylishness and quality. Its sleek body, accented by a soft champagne gold
colour, is ideal for any modern room or stage-and fits almost anywhere. The attractive acrylic music stand comes with fastening screws, so it
stays put no matter where you play. And the optional FPS-11A stand nicely complements the FP-5’s refined lines.
Expressive piano touch
With its unique Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard, the FP-5 feels as natural as an acoustic grand piano. It gives the same light touch in the
upper range and heavier touch in the lower range. It also delivers lighter resistance on pianissimo passages and stronger resistance on
fortissimo passages. Authentic acoustic piano touch is right at your fingertips.
Rich piano sound
Roland built its latest stereo-sampled pianos and sound source technology into the FP-5. So it sounds just like a full concert acoustic grand,
delivering the same breadth of expression and natural, dynamic richness, right down to the most delicate nuance. And of course, its sound source
provides 64-voice polyphony, so you don’t need to worry about note cutoffs when playing.
Superb built-in speakers for powerful, responsive sound
The FP-5’s high-performance 10cm twin-magnet speaker system brings out the true sweetness and responsiveness of the sound, without
compromising the FP-5’s stylishly compact design. Its rounded speakers help ensure your sound remains clear, with a natural, flat frequency
Responsive pedal for more piano expression
The FP-5 can respond to half-pedal playing, for even more realistic acoustic piano-like expression. It comes with one DP-8 pedal as an
accessory-so you can enjoy the half-pedaling feature the moment you bring it home. The FP-5 also offers three pedal connection ports
(Damper/Sostenuto/Soft) to attach other pedals (optional) for a more expressive performance. For even more piano fun, you can assign many other
functions to the Soft and Sostenuto pedal jacks, such as Expression, Session Partner Start/Stop, Bend Up/Down and many others.
Session Partner accompaniment
Create a "live" music session with the Session Partner function. Choose the appropriate kind of drums and bass, select one of 80 realistic
rhythm patterns ranging from Pop to Jazz to Latin as your backing, and you’re ready to play. Furthermore, by choosing one of 90 preset chord
progressions, the Session Partner will faithfully provide the right accompaniment for you. You can also set your own chord progression. It’s an
ideal function for composing, drafting a performance, or playing ad lib, whether on stage or at home. Naturally, you can use the Session Partner
as auto-accompaniment and play chords with your left hand in real time. And with the FP-5,s built-in 3-track recorder, you can even record and
play back your performance, the Session Partner backup, or the rhythm part. It’s practical, functional and fun!
Handy functions for live performances
With its Setup function, the FP-5 can memorize up to seven different settings and instrument sounds. A simple button touch instantly recalls
those settings—perfect for use on stage! The FP-5 can also memorize program changes for each setup, making it ideal for external sound source
control. Plus, a simple, dedicated knob on the panel lets you quickly and easily adjust the volume balance of either instrument sound in Split
mode or Dual mode. It’s great for live performances.
Wide selection of instrument sounds and effects
With a wealth of onboard instrument sounds-everything from electric piano to strings, guitar and many others-the FP-5 has the right instrument
for whatever you want to play. It has numerous other features too. You can create an instant ensemble by using the Split mode to divide the
keyboard in half and select a different instrument sound for each hand. Or you can combine two sounds with Dual mode play, for even more
expression. You can also use the Pedal Pitch Bend function to sustain notes. Best of all, in addition to Reverb, the FP-5 has 10 special sound
effects like Chorus, Sympathetic Resonance, the Rotary effect for organ sounds, the Phaser and Tremolo effects for electric piano, and
Virtual ToneWheel organ sound
The FP-5 incorporates Roland’s unique Virtual ToneWheel organ sound, perfectly reproducing the soulful sound of a tone wheel organ. These are
not mere presets; you can change the level of each footage to create just the organ sound you want.
USB-MIDI and GM2-compliant sound source
The FP-5 is equipped with a built-in USB port* that makes MIDI connection to your computer a breeze. With this USB port and GM2-compliant
sound source, you can set up the FP-5 as a computer music input keyboard or sound source for GM/GM2.
*The USB port handles MIDI messages only.
*CD-ROM containing USB drivers for Windows and Mac OS included. USB cable not included.
The FP-5 offers several jacks and ports to connect to other devices. The input jacks let you connect external audio devices such as CD
players, so you can play along with your favorite CDs. The output jacks let you play the FP-5 through external audio equipment or your home audio
