Roland FP 90 PHA-50 Plastic + Wood Hybrid Keys

Roland PHA50 action

PHA-50, which is Roland’s best key action yet, is included in FP 90. The combination of plastic and wood makes FP 90 look more natural, and escapement feature integrated in PHA-50 will make players to feel action of actual piano because the wood parts will vibrate. It also feels natural when sliding keys.

*Escapementthe mechanism that allows the hammer to clear the string after striking, so that the string can vibrate (TheFreeDictionary).

Hammers of grand piano positioned horizontally therefore get affected by gravity directly, which enables faster key recovery. Hammers of upright piano are positioned vertically with springs (jack).

Yamaha Montage 88 picture

Yamaha Montage, the latest synthesizer made by Yamaha will offer a new paradigm of modulating a song in real time, something that players could not achieve with other synthesizers in real time. The combination of 2 sound engines, FM-X (new modern version of synthesis engine) and AWM2 (waveform based subractive synthesis engine) enables players to create variety sounds simultaneously. One component that differentiates Montage with its previous model Motif-XF is motion control feature. Instead of controlling each sound encoders and sliders, with a move of a controller called ‘Super Knob’, players can change maximum of 16 parameters easily (also possible with a foot pedal). The goal of Yamaha Montage is to enable players to achieve new sound and modulation with a simplest conrol move. There are 3 different types of montage, 61 keys, 76 keys, 88 keys.

“Music in Motion… Montage sets the next milestone with sophisticated dynamic control, massive sound creation and streamlined workflow…. While Montage certainly takes some operational design cues from the Motif series, Montage is an exponential improvement over Motif in terms of sound, control and workflow.” – Yamaha

Yamaha Montage‘s motion control with super knob and pedal that control various parameters simultaneously. Like converting sound while synchronizing with beat + multi dimensional sound modulation. Can change (add or remove) section, drop in & out the sound.

-Integrated motion sequencer

Yamaha Montage has programmed controller movements at the matching key press timing, also changes tones rhythmically.

Montage has parameter rotary encoders with position memory

-With Yamaha Montage, players can send out 16 stereo channels to IOS device or computer using DAW and return 3 back for monitoring purpose.

Yamaha Montage back

Yamaha Montage used high quality aluminum (arched design) for light weight and abrasion proof.

Yamaha Montage has analog power supply for the DA converter’s IC. It is the secret of its sound quality.

Yamaha Montage LED.jpg

Yamaha Montage has fancy LED screen and buttons that are cleary visible at anywhere (in dark, under stage light or sun).

-Yamaha Montage has flagship engine that Yamaha developed for 10 years.

Yamaha Montage‘s envelope follower uses audio signal as the source for the dynamic control of parameters.

-Montage 6 and Montage 7 have semi-weighted keyboard

-Montage 8 has weighted balanced hammer action.

For brief pictured description for Motion Control, click here.

 

Yamaha Montage Features (from Yamaha official site)

Motion Control Synthesis Engine

Motion Control Synthesis Engine unifies and controls two iconic Sound Engines: AWM2 (high-quality waveform and subtractive synthesis) and FM-X (modern, pure Frequency Modulation synthesis.) These two engines can be freely zoned or layered across eight parts in a single MONTAGE Performance.

Interact with MONTAGE Performances using Motion Control: a highly programmable control matrix for creating deep, dynamic and incredibly expressive sound. With Motion Control, you can create new sounds that were not possible on previous synthesizers.

Yamaha Montage’s Super Knob function can even be assigned to a second FC7 foot controller making it easy to manipulate the sound effect when playing with both hands.

For example, with Yamaha Montage, you can first play with small ensemble orchestra voice, and when you use either super knob or volume pedal, the small ensemble gradually becomes big string orchestra. And you can also add drum beat(+tempo control) using either controller.

– Motion SEQ

Basic video guides from Roland:

 


FP30 used

Roland FP 30 Touch

– Roland FP 30 has impressive 88 keys, PHA-4 graded weight hammer action which has escapement feeling that replicates grand piano touch, no other digital pianos that are in similar price range have this escapement feature. Roland FP 30 also has ivory key surface, it absorbs moisture from fingers, thus improves playability. Compared with its previous model F 20, Roland FP 30  has 2 more levels of key touch (5 total), and better sound. Comparing Roland FP 30 with other old FP models, FP 30 has better key action and cheaper price. Roland FP 30 has better key sensor and key action than other products that are more expensive than FP 30.

*Escapement –  the mechanism that allows the hammer to clear the string after striking, so that the string can vibrate (TheFreeDictionary).

Hammers of grand piano positioned horizontally, therefore get affected by gravity directly, which enables faster key recovery. Hammers of upright piano are positioned vertically with springs (jack).

Roland Juno DS88 Review & Best Price

Roland Juno DS88 / Roland Juno DS88 Price / Roland Juno DS88 Compare Sound & Function —Digital Piano Best Review..

Roland Juno DS88 main

Roland Juno DS88 is one of the bestselling synthesizer.
Many people are aware of the excellent technology of Roland digital pianos.
They are also aware that, Rolands are way more valuable due to its high quality compared to other brands. (Also Available is JUNO-DS61 for 61 keys)
Roland Juno DS88 is made for musicians who search for synthesizers with brilliant value with exceptionally good prices.

Speaker quality and keyboard quality also became upgraded. If your budget is around the middle range and if you have experienced Rolands, then you would most likely consider actually purchasing this item. Trust me, this is a good buy.
Roland Synthesizers are the best as a digital instrument. Also, Roland Juno DS88 has the best function and technology way more than its price has to offer.
If you have at least used any other synthesizers in the past, you will acknowledge Roland Juno DS88 out of other synthesizers within the same price range.

Roland Juno DS88 is a modern unique synthesizer with prestige and various functions that can provide enjoyment in performance.
Roland Juno DS88 is also recognized because Roland Juno DS88 have escapement technology with in the keyboard all the sounds and functions from the previous Juno-DI and newly updated sound presets.
You will not be able to find other synthesizers at these bargain price that gives you the “click-feel” of Escapement.
Many in-store shoppers acknowledge the weight of the keyboard and as they play the Roland Juno DS88 , they acknowledge it once again.
Nonetheless, Roland Juno DS88 is a modern-style home digital piano. Roland Juno DS88 does not take up that much space.
If you lack space to keep a piano but still want a digital piano that is same size as an acoustic piano with 88-weighted key, then I strongly recommend the Roland Juno DS88.

Sound — Roland Juno DS88 also has over 1200 preset memories with more than 256 user memories.
Roland Juno DS88 will express all your performance realistically and meet your needs.
Roland Juno DS88 will meet the standard and even exceed the satisfaction of the performer but it will realistically express the performance as is.

These numerous sound of Roland is sampled from the very best sources including the sound of Steinway piano.
Thus, Roland Juno DS88 has ample sound of clarity and depth. Honestly, not everyone is satisfied with sound sources of Roland Juno-DS88
Sound is a personal preference and if they want a clear sound then it is understandable.
However, fans of Roland products say that harmonic connection between lower to higher pitched sounds are well balanced.
Most Roland fans in-store are usually music majors and performers of classical music.

Compared to the number of hotkeys, it has vast amount of different sound types. You can play it comfortably with the 128 Polyphony.
Roland Juno DS88 even has a slot for expansion sets.
Roland Juno DS88 has realistic sound with great rhythm pattern grouping as well, meeting your sampling and producing needs.

Touch —— As stated above, Roland Juno DS88 has weighted keys that have ivory feel which is made to prevent slipping of the finger.
Roland Juno DS88 has 88 weighted hammer actions which makes low-pitched keys heavier and makes the weight of the keys lighter as pitch gets higher.
Action of the keys is acknowledged all over the world.
To emulate realistic grand piano it is made with “click-feel” which is called escapement.
Roland Juno DS88 made of 88 Key Ivory Feel-G with Escapement.
You will feel like you are playing an acoustic grand piano.
You can control touch-sensitivity to your own preference for performance.
It’s hard to know the pros of Roland keyboard just by pressing on the keys.
Play the actual Roland Juno DS88 piano when you have a chance; you might even become a fan of Roland afterwards.
Roland’s keyboard is great for multi-purpose use.
If you have not experienced advanced Rolands, then I strongly recommend experiencing it.
Roland Juno DS88 has the best keyboard action compared to other digital pianos within the same price range and I proudly recommend the Roland Juno DS88.

Many people who learn on Digital Piano learn much faster In order to learn the digital piano. Now-a-days, teachers, tutors, pianists and musicians recommend learning piano on digital piano due to the advances in technology makes digital piano much superior than upright piano and much closer to a grand piano. Here is 6 reasons why learning on digital piano will improve your piano skills MUCH FASTER than an acoustic piano.

  1. Headphone / Control Volume: With digital piano, you can control the volume of the digital piano. This is very necessary when practicing during nights. When an acoustic pianos are played during night time, it may be too loud for neighbors or other household members. This can not only cause personal problems among others but also, amount of practice time will be limited for the student. By using volume controls and headphones, student can practice the piano whenever he or she pleases. Allowing more practice time can give student accelerated improvements.

  2. Touch Response Controls: You can control the touch action of the digital piano. This allow younger children to control the touch response to match their fragile joints and ligaments. Children’s joints and ligaments are sensitive and normal pianos can be detrimental for their joint health. Digital piano can give extra comfort to children pianists and students when they are younger.touch response function
  3. Record and Evaluate your performance: Most digital piano will have a recording function that allows users to record their performance. By recording one’s performance electronically on the digital piano. One can easily listen to the performance and make a discerning judgement on the performance in a third person perspective. By doing this, even small mistakes and intricate improvements can take a beginner further to a advanced level. In music, small details matter a lot.record button
  4. No need for tuning: Most acoustic pianos require tuning. tuning requires extra expenses to tune the acoustic piano every time digital piano goes out of tune. Acoustic piano gets out of tune many times and because they are constantly in need of tuning, there is no guarantee that all of the keys on the piano will be in tune. Many times at least one of the key will be out of tune. You will need to either tune it yourself or call in professional tuning expert. With a digital piano, there is no worry about tuning. Digital piano does not need to be tuned at all and your sound will stay constant.tuning
  5. Lesson functions and Metronome: Most For example, Casio PX760 have over 60 demo songs that can play divided hands: assisted left and right hand lessons to practice each hand before playing both hands simultaneously. Yamaha digital pianos also have follow along lesson functions that you can play along to a background music. This will allow you to practice duet without a partner.
