Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard
The RD700SX is equipped with Roland’s top-of-the-line Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard, which provides heavy-to-light response as you climb from low to high octaves, just like a real piano. Combined with a true hammer-action mechanism, the keyboard offers an incredibly natural response that feels and plays like a true grand.
With its front-panel sliders, large buttons, and backlit LCD, the Roland RD700SX is a fast and friendly instrument to pilot, especially for live performers who need instant, fumble-free access to sounds. The ONE TOUCH PIANO and E.PIANO buttons let you recall your favourite instrument sounds and edits — such as changes to the piano’s String Resonance and Key Touch, or the E.Piano’s Amp type. You can also switch entire groups of settings during a performance by selecting a Setup that you’ve edited and stored in advance; up to 100 Setups can be stored and instantly recalled.
Transform your sound with the RD700SX’s powerful twin multi-effects engines onboard. Among the many high-quality effects types are reverb, chorus, Sound Control (3-band compressor), and dedicated 3-band parametric EQ with adjustable frequency, Q, and gain for achieving the perfect custom-tailored sound. Dedicated knobs, buttons, and the large graphical display allow intuitive sound control.
The RD-700SX is fully equipped for the gigging professional. Both 1/4″ and XLR outputs provide compatibility with all popular types of mixers and amplification systems. And for the utmost in performance expression, the RD-700SX offers inputs for damper pedals and two-function assignable foot pedals. Use the tandem MIDI outs and USB I/O for MIDI control and data backup/exchange. The RD700SX’s customizable Master Control features allow it to serve as the master for other MIDI instruments. And for audio/visual-minded musicians who want to “play” graphics (via Edirol video equipment), the RD-700SX is V-LINK compatible.
The Roland RD700SX offers an impressive 474 internal tones and 14 rhythm types, which can be expanded by adding two optional Roland SRX boards. Choose from an impressive lineup of SRX titles, including Complete Orchestra, Big Brass Ensemble, World Collection, Platinum Trax, and more.
