True acoustic grand piano sound and touch
The RG-7 provides two superb grand piano tones. One is Roland’s all-new 88-note world-class concert grand sound with individual multisamples for every key, and the other is the revered Roland piano sound which has brought such joy and fun to players everywhere. Both are touch-responsive to the subtlest pressure and nuance — from the deepest bass to the most delicate high notes.
Electric piano, harpsichord and other instrument tones
The RG-7 also includes 18 other fabulous instrument tones — such as electric piano and harpsichord — carefully selected from Roland’s very best sound resources. Plus, it has 600 internal tones for playback of GM2 and GS music data.
Newly designed speaker system
We have radically re-thought and completely redesigned the speaker system to make the sound utterly “natural,” both from the position of the player and that of the audience. The RG-7, you will find, delivers breathtakingly realistic acoustic grand piano sound. And should you need to play with even more presence and dimension, you can connect external speakers. The piano part comes from the piano itself, while the accompaniment comes from the external speakers, making it sound just like there’s a live band or orchestra right there with you in the room.
Authentic acoustic grand piano touch
For the most authentic acoustic grand piano touch imaginable, the RG-7 incorporates Roland’s highly acclaimed Progressive Hammer Action Keyboard with Escapement. This keyboard delivers the same natural responsive touch as a grand piano, with a heavier touch in the lower range and lighter touch in the upper, and with lighter resistance on pianissimo passages and stronger resistance on fortissimo. It even faithfully reproduces the escapement “click-feel” of a grand piano.
Gorgeous, eye-catching design — a luxurious grand piano presence
The elegant form of the RG-7, which is very close to the size of an actual acoustic grand, will draw every eye in the room. Its exquisitely crafted grand piano cabinet with beautiful polished ebony finish makes it the natural centerpiece of any space in which it’s placed. The large lid can be opened or closed just like on an acoustic grand, helping to create, together with the music rest, a true grand piano presence.
Simple, elegant panel with locking lid
With a minimal number of buttons, the smart, modern control panel is the ultimate in simplicity and functionality; the locking panel lid can be slid down to hide the control panel, making the RG-7 look even more like an actual acoustic grand.
Exciting player piano functions for a captivating atmosphere
The RG-7 incorporates an advanced automatic keyboard movement function that’s ideal for parties and gatherings. Simply select an SMF or other music file for playback and watch the automatic keyboard as it “plays” the music. Or choose one of the onboard jazz standards or classical masterpieces and watch the keys play the song. Everyone is captivated by a player piano in action. Lounge or living room, hotel or hall, the RG-7 will be the center of attention.
Built-in CD drive and USB memory port
The built-in CD drive is an exciting musical playback system that adds atmosphere to any environment. It lets you play commercially available CD libraries for player pianos, standard audio CDs, and CD-Rs with SMF data saved on them. In addition, the RG-7 houses a USB port, so you can input music data or contents not only with a CD but also with a USB flash memory device.
Handy remote control and external display
Control the mood and ambience of the room with the remote control. You can start or stop the music, choose songs, and adjust the volume from a distance. By connecting your own external display*, you can easily scroll through, read, and select from the large onscreen menus and icons. You can also instantly and effortlessly change songs, even from across the room. *External display not included.
Locking lid protects control panel
Adopted especially for use in hotels and restaurants, the RG-7’s locking panel lid can be slid down to hide the control panel, protecting it from spills and bumps, and preventing guests from touching the controls during playback. And with the locking panel lid down, the instrument looks even more like an acoustic grand.
Slideshow display can inform and attract customers
Using the RG-7’s built-in USB port, you can import your very own slideshow and display it on an external screen. Show your menu, or a list of scheduled events, or a preview of coming attractions — or anything that you want to broadcast visually to your customers. This feature can be a subtle but very powerful and effective advertising medium for you.
Inputs/Outputs for stage use and vocals
The RG-7 is ideally equipped for lively parties and gatherings. It has convenient XLR output jacks for use on stage, as well as a microphone input with echo, voice transformer, and vocal harmonist functions to enjoy karaoke and other entertainment.
Lighter weight, and never needs tuning
The RG-7 is lighter than an acoustic grand piano of its size, and also lighter than an acoustic player piano, so it can be moved more easily. And because it’s completely digital and has no strings, it requires very little maintenance. It never needs tuning!
