Modern Elegance

The GP-9 embodies signature piano elegance with its flowing curves, solid lines, and striking high-gloss ebony and polished white finishes. Like an acoustic grand, the lid can be opened to different positions to adjust the sound character or closed to create a flat surface when not in use. Smart touch controls in the panel provide intuitive access to essential functions as needed. And when you?re ready to play, you can turn off their backlighting to eliminate distractions and maintain the acoustic aesthetic.

Moving keys

The GP-9 features a moving key function for entertaining at home gatherings and commercial venues like restaurants and hotels. Call up songs from the piano?s extensive onboard library or MIDI files via USB flash media, and then watch and listen as the keys magically play themselves. Roland Cloud also offers a growing library of songs that can be accessed via the Roland Piano App.

Versatile Audio Connectivity

Professional XLR outputs enable you to connect the piano directly to a house audio system in a performance venue or commercial establishment for broader sound coverage and independent control from the onboard speakers. All GP-9 sounds go to the outputs by default, but you can assign the dry piano sound, ambience only, or song playback to suit your needs. There?s a dedicated microphone input as well, allowing a performer to sing through the GP-9 sound system without the need for an external preamp or audio mixer.

Piano Reality

The GP-9 is built around advanced Roland?s Piano Reality approach, a sophisticated ecosystem of connected technologies comprising the sound engine, keyboard, pedals, audio components, and speakers. Each section is designed to work together flawlessly and transparently, allowing players to experience the purity of this wonderful instrument with unprecedented expression and realism.

Endlessly Inspiring Tone

Piano Reality Concert modeling leverages our latest technologies to recreate every sound-making element of an acoustic piano, putting the living response and complex tonal colors of a concert-class grand under your fingers. Modeled ambience is integrated into the sound engine, allowing you to play in realistic spaces such as an intimate studio, spacious concert hall, or large cathedral. And with unlimited polyphony, notes and resonances ring in full detail to translate every musical emotion.

Authentic Grand Playability

The Piano Reality Concert keyboard provides unbounded expression with progressive hammer action, escapement, hybrid wood/molded key construction with Ivory Feel, and advanced acceleration sensing technology for accurate detection of the subtlest playing nuances. Fine details further elevate the feel, including long key pivot length and haptic vibration that emulates the subtle vibrations from an acoustic piano?s body. High-performance sustain, soft, and sostenuto pedals round out the authentic experience, offering weighted feel, damper modeling, and support for traditional pedal techniques.

A Full-Immersion Sound Experience

The GP-9 features the Piano Reality Concert projection sound system, where multi-channel amplification, premium audio circuitry, and advanced sonic processing come together for the ultimate full-surround piano experience. The cabinet construction, speaker placement, and lid angle have all been carefully tuned to deliver the same bold and immersive sound presentation as a concert grand in a performance hall. And notes naturally move across the immediate sound field as you play, mirroring the physical string positions on an acoustic grand?s soundboard.

Personalize the Sound and Feel

The GP-9 offers several world-class grand piano sounds that are ready to enjoy. But if you?re an experienced player, you can dive into the onboard Piano Designer tools to further refine the tone and response for your personal touch. Adjust the string tuning and temperament, fine-tune keyboard sensitivity and duplex scaling, shape cabinet resonances, and much more. Customized settings can be recalled with a touch, a great feature for different pianists who play the GP-9 in a commercial environment or performance venue.

Easy Integration with Your Wireless World

With onboard Bluetooth, you can use your favorite mobile devices with the GP-9. Stream songs from your music library through the piano?s speaker system to play along or provide background when relaxing or entertaining. Or use Bluetooth MIDI with music production apps to wirelessly compose using the GP-9 responsive weighted keyboard. USB ports are also available for connecting with computers and flash storage devices, providing more ways to explore your creativity and share music performances.

Roland Piano App

The Roland Piano App seamlessly extends the GP-9M experience with remote operation from your smartphone or tablet. Select sounds, control the metronome, and use the recording feature to evaluate your playing and hear where you need to improve.
