Roland RD-64 64-Key Digital Piano
The first thing you’ll notice about the TD-6V Percussion Sound Module is the new black look and cool blue LCD screen. Like the original, this 64-voice module serves up 1,024 of Roland’s best drum and percussion sounds and 262 backing instruments—but with newly created drum kits and patterns in the latest music styles. Dual-trigger tom inputs allow for rim shots on toms* (using Roland PD-8 pads), while large, luminous buttons make the TD-6V very easy to use.
* TD-6V Tom inputs are single trigger with PD-85 or similar mesh pads
Streamlined and Travel-ReadyWith the RD-64, gigging players now have access to a compact, weighted-action stage piano that’s as easy to transport as a synthesizer. The streamlined, lightweight design fits easily in small vehicles and takes up less space on crowded stages, plus it makes fly dates less costly and more convenient for touring musicians. It also works great as a high-quality, space-saving keyboard for home studios, teaching labs, and mobile composing. The optional CB-61L Carrying Bag is a perfect match for the RD-64, providing durable protection when you’re on the move.
SuperNatural Piano and Other Essential SoundsThe RD-64 features Roland’s acclaimed SuperNatural Piano sound engine for top-level acoustic piano tones, plus a selection of expressive SuperNatural-based electric pianos. The rich, ultra-responsive sounds have a wide dynamic range with seamless variations in tone, delivering pro results for stage playing and studio recording. Also onboard are a number of clav and organ sounds, giving performing keyboardists the essential sounds they need for playing a wide range of music styles.
Ivory Feel-G KeyboardThe 64-note Ivory Feel-G keyboard in the RD-64 incorporates Roland’s most advanced sensor technology, escapement mechanism, and Ivory Feel features. This gives you the superior touch, sensitivity, and appearance of the keyboards found in their flagship 88-note pianos, right down to the unique key material that replicates the authentic texture and moisture-absorbing properties of real ivory and ebony. Combined with the SuperNatural Piano sound engine, the Ivory Feel-G offers expressivity and performance that rivals high-end instruments.
Effects and MoreOnboard effects include a high-quality stereo reverb, plus EFX 1 and EFX 2 processors that provide sweetening specifically tailored to each of the RD-64’s tone categories. Options include enhancer and damper resonance for grand piano sounds, tremolo and phaser for EPs, and many more, with quick on/off access via easy-to-reach buttons. There’s even a dedicated rotary effect for the organ, featuring on/off and speed controls for authentic organ performance. A two-band EQ is provided for overall sound shaping, with easy adjustment on the fly via two convenient knobs. Stereo RCA inputs allow you to connect a music player for live backing tracks and practicing.
Advanced Controller FeaturesIn a flash, Controller mode* turns the RD-64 into a powerful master keyboard outfitted with assignable knobs, buttons, pitch bend/mod lever, and the famous D-Beam, perfect for controlling synths and other devices on stage and in the studio. Additionally, the one-touch SuperNatural button automatically assigns the RD-64’s controllers to fully utilize the massive expressive potential of the SuperNatural tones in Roland’s INTEGRA-7 sound module and Jupiter-80 / Jupiter-50 synthesizers.
*When the RD-64 is used in Controller mode, the onboard tones are not available.
Ideal for iPad Music ProductionWith an ever-increasing number of music apps available, the iPad is becoming more and more popular for basic production and on-the-go composing. By plugging in via Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit, the RD-64 gives you a mobile, weighted-action keyboard to use with the popular tablet computer.
