Introduction
Thank you, and congratulations on your choice of the HP203. To ensure that you obtain
the maximum enjoyment and take full advantage of the HP203’s functionality, please
read this owner’s manual carefully.
About the Manual
You should first read the “Before You Play” section of the owner’s manual (this
document). This explains how to connect the power cord and turn on the power.
This owner’s manual explains everything from basic operations that use the HP203’s
playback functions to more advanced operations, such as using the HP203 to record a
song.
Conventions in this Manual
In order to explain the operations as clearly as possible, this manual uses the following
conventions.
• Text enclosed in square brackets [ ] indicates the name of a button or a knob, such as the
[Piano] button.
• Lines that begin with
to read.
NOTE
or an asterisk * are cautionary statements that you must be sure
• The numbers of pages that you can turn to for additional, related information are given like
this: (p. **).
Main Features
Piano sounds with rich resonance and wide expressive range
This instrument features a piano sound generator that utilizes stereo sampling, so it is
capable of faithfully recreating the sound of a high-quality concert grand piano,
realistically reproducing even the finest details, including the sound of the hammers
striking the strings. With a maximum polyphony of 128 notes, it has ample capability
even for performances that make full use of pedaling.
More than three hundred different sounds covering not only piano but a wide range of
instruments are built-in. You can also play drum sets from the keyboard.

Introduction
The playing feel of a grand piano
The Progressive Hammer Action II (PHA II) action gives you a weighty playing feel in the
low register while becoming lighter in the high register, replicating the authentic feel of
a piano. The distinctive sense of click (escapement) that you experience when softly
playing a piano note is also accurately simulated, ensuring a high degree of playability.
The pedal position is detected smoothly, allowing you to vary the effect by the changing
the depth to which you press the pedal. You can take advantage of the way in which
subtle differences in pedaling will affect the sound.
A compact cabinet that fits anywhere
The newly designed cabinet is compact and exudes a sense of quality befitting a musical
instrument. It can be placed nearly anywhere, and does not occupy excessive space.
In addition to a sliding keyboard cover that will not rattle, there’s a convenient
headphone hook for storing your headphones when not in use.
The versatile functionality you expect from a digital piano
Replicating the ambience of a concert hall
In addition to a high-quality reverb effect, these instruments also feature a 3D Sound
Control function, which replicates the spatial depth of a full concert grand piano, and a
Dynamic Sound Control function, which enhances the consistency and power of the
sound. Even when performing through headphones, you can use these effects to enjoy
sounds with superb presence.
Convenient functions to help you practice, and built-in piano songs with
accompaniment
A metronome function, a three-track recorder, and internal preset songs with orchestral
accompaniment and printed piano music (sixty songs) are included, making this
electronic piano an excellent choice for piano lessons.
Performing and saving data
The data you’ve recorded using the recorder can be saved using a separately sold floppy
disk drive or USB memory. In addition to a floppy disk drive or USB memory, you can
also connect a commercially available USB-type CD drive and play back SMF music
data, music CDs, or audio files. SMF music data from USB memory, a floppy disk, or CDROM can also be saved in internal memory.

Before You Play
About the Adjuster
About the Pedals
The pedals perform the following operations. You’ll use them
mainly when playing piano.
If you feel that the pedal is unstable (for example if you’ve
moved the HP203 to a different location), you can adjust the
adjuster located on the bottom of the pedals as follows.
fig.Pedals-e.eps
Damper Pedal
Soft Pedal
• Turn the adjuster to lower it until the adjuster is in firm
contact with the floor. The pedal may be damaged if there
is a gap between the adjuster and the floor. In particular,
when you’ve placed the HP203 on carpet, you must turn
the adjuster until it is pressing firmly against the floor.
fig.adjuster.eps
Sostenuto Pedal
Damper Pedal (right pedal)
Use this pedal to sustain the sound.
While this pedal is held down, notes will be sustained for an
extended time even if you release your fingers from the
keyboard.
The length of sustain will change subtly depending on how
deeply you press the pedal.
Adjuster
On an acoustic piano, holding down the damper pedal will
cause the strings for notes other than the ones you actually
play to vibrate in sympathy with what you’ve played,
producing a rich resonance. The HP203 simulates this
sympathetic vibration (damper resonance).
You can modify the sound of the sympathetic
vibration. Refer to p. 70.
Sostenuto Pedal (center pedal)
The notes you are pressing when this pedal is depressed will
be sustained.
Soft Pedal (left pedal)
This pedal is used to make the sound softer.
Playing with the soft pedal depressed produces a sound that is
not as strong as when otherwise played with the equivalent
strength. This is the same function as the left pedal of an
acoustic piano.
The softness of the tone can be varied subtly by the depth to
which you press the pedal.
You can switch the function of the sostenuto pedal
and the soft pedal. Refer to “Changing How the
Pedals Work (Center/Left Pedal Function)” (p. 67).
NOTE
If you disconnect the pedal cable from the HP203
while the power is turned on, the pedal effect will
remain applied. You must connect or disconnect the
pedal cable while the HP203’s power is switched
off.

Listening through Headphones
Using the Headphone Hook
You can use headphones to enjoy the HP203 without
disturbing those around you, such as at night. Since the
HP203 has two headphone jacks, two people can also use
headphones simultaneously.
Whenever you are not using the headphones, you can hang
them on the headphone hook of the HP203.
If you’re using only one set of headphones, you may connect
them to either of the two headphone jacks.
1.
Press and twist the headphone hook included
with the HP203 into the hole in the bottom left

Cautions when Using Headphones
• To prevent damage to the cord’s internal conductors,
avoid rough handling. When using headphones, mainly
try to handle either the plug or the headset.
• Your headphones may be damaged if the volume of a
device is already turned up when you plug them in.
Minimize the volume before you plug in the headphones.
• Excessive input will not only damage your hearing, but
may also strain the headphones. Please enjoy music at an
appropriate volume.
• Use headphones that have a stereo 1/4” phone plug.

Changing the Key of the Keyboard (Key Transpose)
The “Key Transpose” function lets you play a song at a different key. If you’re accompanying
a singer, you can use the Transpose function to shift the pitch to a key that’s comfortable for
the singer while you continue playing in the same familiar key (fingering).
You can also use this function to transpose the pitch of your playing without changing
your fingering on the keyboard. For example, if the song is in a difficult key with
numerous sharps ( ) or flats ( ), you can transpose to a key that’s easier for you to play.
fig.Panel-Transpose-e.eps
On the HP203, you can transpose the pitch of just the keyboard, or the pitch of the
keyboard and song together, or the pitch of just the song (Transpose Mode; p. 66).
When the HP203 is shipped from the factory, it is set so that the pitch of the keyboard
and song will be transposed together (“Changing the Key of the Song Playback
(Playback Transpose)” (p. 47)).

Hold down the [Transpose] button and press the key corresponding to the
tonic of the desired key. (In this case, the note will not sound.)
The Key Transpose setting value continues to appear in the display while the [Transpose] button
is held down.

When you release the [Transpose] button, you return to the previous screen.
By holding down the [Transpose] button and pressing both the [-] and [+] buttons
simultaneously, the setting returns to its original value (0).

Changing the Timing of Sounds
According to the Force Used to Press
the Keys (Hammer Response)
This adjusts how your playing strength will affect the timing at which
the note sounds. This is called the “Hammer Response” function.
On an acoustic piano, pressing a key moves a hammer, which
strikes a string to produce sound. If you press the key softly,
the hammer will move slowly, meaning that it will take slightly
longer (in comparison to a strongly-played note) from the
moment you press the key until the sound is produced.
If the Hammer Response function is turned on, the time
between the moment you press a key until the sound is heard
will change depending on the strength with which you play.
As you play more softly, this time will become longer.

Tuning Settings
Matching the Pitch with Other
Instruments (Master Tuning)
When playing ensemble with other instruments and in other
such instances, you can match the standard pitch to another
instrument.
The standard pitch generally refers to the pitch of the note
that’s played when you finger the middle A key. For a cleaner
ensemble sound while performing with one or more other
instruments, ensure that each instrument’s standard pitch is in
tune with that of the other instruments. This tuning of all the
instruments to a standard pitch is called “master tuning.”
1.
Hold down the [Brilliance] button and press
the [3D] button.
Adjusting the Tuning (Temperament)
You can play classical music such as baroque pieces using
their original tuning.
Most modern songs are composed and played with the
assumption that equal temperament (the most common tuning
in use today) will be used, but when classical music was
composed, there were a wide variety of other tuning systems
in existence. Playing a composition with its original tuning lets
you enjoy the sonorities of the chords that the composer
originally intended.

below.
The last three digits are indicated in the display. “440.0

Setting
Temperament
Equal
In this tuning, each octave is
divided into twelve equal steps.
Every interval produces about the
same amount of slight dissonance.
Just (Major)
This tuning eliminates ambiguities
in the fifths and thirds. It is unsuited
to playing melodies and cannot be
transposed, but is capable of
beautiful sonorities.
3
Just (Minor)
The Just tunings differ from major
and minor keys. You can get the
same effect with the minor scale as
with the major scale.

Arabic
This tuning is suitable for the music
of Arabia.

Kirnberger
This is an improvement of the
Meantone and Just tunings that
provides a high degree of freedom
of modulation. Performances are
possible in all keys (III).
Meantone
This scale makes some
compromises in just intonation,
enabling transposition to other
keys.
Pythagorean
This tuning, devised by the
philosopher Pythagoras, eliminates
dissonance in fourths and fifths.
Dissonance is produced by thirdinterval chords, but melodies are
euphonious.
Pianos are generally tuned so that the low range is flatter and
the high range is sharper than equal tempered pitches. This
method of tuning is unique to the piano, and is known as
“stretched tuning.”

Explanation
This tuning curve expands the bass and treble ends
somewhat. It is suitable for performances such as

Specifying the Tonic
When playing with tuning other than equal temperament, you
need to specify the tonic note for tuning the song to be
performed (that is, the note that corresponds to C for a major
key or to A for a minor key).
This is the standard tuning curve. This is suitable for
when using Dual performance (p. 33) or when
playing in an ensemble with other instruments.
If you choose an equal temperament, there’s no need to select
a tonic note.

MIDI, short for “Musical Instrument Digital Interface,” was
developed as a universal standard for the exchange of
performance data between electronic instruments and
computers.
The HP203 is equipped with MIDI connectors to let it
exchange performance data with external devices. These
connectors can be used to connect the HP203 to an
external device for even greater versatility.

INSTRUMENT buttons [Strings] [Voice] [Others] also operate as buttons that
select “Recommended Tones.”
With the factory settings, connecting a commercially-available CD-ROM drive
to the external memory connector and selecting a song from a CD-ROM
produced for the VIMA (VIMA TUNES) will automatically cause sounds
appropriate for that song to be assigned to the [Strings], [Voice], and [Others]
Tone buttons, so that you can select “recommended” sounds by pressing one
of these buttons.
You can also make settings so that “recommended” sounds are not
automatically assigned.
p. 78
Effect does not apply
When you are using Dual performance or Split performance, and different
effects are specified for the two selected tones, the effect will not be applied
to Tone 2 (when using Dual performance) or the left-hand tone (when using
Split performance).
—
Reverberation remains even if
you defeat the Reverb effect
The HP203’s piano sound faithfully simulates the depth and resonance of an
acoustic piano, and this may give the impression of reverberation even if
you’ve defeated the Reverb effect.
—
The sound of the higher notes
suddenly changes from a certain
key
On an acoustic piano, the approximately one and a half octaves of notes at
the top of the keyboard will continue sounding regardless of the damper
pedal. These notes also have a somewhat different tonal character. HP203
faithfully simulate this characteristic of acoustic pianos. On the HP203, the
range that is unaffected by the damper pedal will change according to the key
transpose setting.
—
Pitch of the keyboard or song is
incorrect
Sounds are heard twice (doubled)
when the keyboard is played
High-pitched ringing is heard
If you hear this in headphones:
Piano sounds that have a brilliant and crisp character contain substantial highfrequency components that may sound as though a metallic ringing has been
added. This is because the character of an actual piano is being faithfully
reproduced, and is not a malfunction. This ringing is more obtrusive if the
reverb effect is applied heavily, so you may be able to minimize it by
decreasing the reverb.
—
If you don’t hear this in headphones:
It is likely that there is some other reason (such as resonances within the unit).
Please contact your dealer or a nearby Roland service center.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Low notes sound wrong, or are
buzzy
Cause/Action
If you don’t hear this in headphones:
Performing at high volumes may cause the speakers or objects near the HP203
to resonate. Fluorescent lights or glass doors may also resonate
sympathetically. In particular, this is more likely to occur for lower notes and
higher volumes. You can take the following measures to minimize resonances.
• Locate the speakers 10–15 cm away from walls or other surfaces.
• Keep the volume down.
• Move away from the objects that are resonating.

Music Files That the HP203 Can Use
What Are Music Files?
Music files contains musical information such as how long the
key for a corresponding pitch is played, the force applied to
the key played, and other such information. When the
performance data (music file) is sent by your computer or
similar device, the song will be played exactly as specified by
the data. This is different than a audio CD, since the music file
does not contain a recording of the sound itself. This makes it
possible to change tempos and keys freely, allowing you to
use it in many different ways.
Regarding Copyright
General MIDI
The General MIDI is a set of recommendations which seeks to
provide a way to go beyond the limitations of proprietary
designs, and standardize the MIDI capabilities of sound
generating devices. Sound generating devices and music files
that meets the General MIDI standard bears the General MIDI
logo. Music files bearing the General MIDI logo can be
played back using any General MIDI sound generating unit to
produce essentially the same musical performance.
General MIDI 2
Use of the song data supplied with the CD-ROM attached to
this product for any purpose other than private, personal
enjoyment without the permission of the copyright holder is
prohibited by law. Additionally, this data must not be copied,
nor used in a secondary copyrighted work without the
permission of the copyright holder.
Please be aware that if you create derivative works that are
based on existing copyrighted material, such as commercially
available SMF music files, such works may violate copyright
law if used for any purpose other than personal enjoyment.
Roland takes no responsibility for any copyright violation you
may commit by creating such works.
The upwardly compatible General MIDI 2 recommendations
pick up where the original General MIDI left off, offering
enhanced expressive capabilities, and even greater
compatibility. Issues that were not covered by the original
General MIDI recommendations, such as how sounds are to
be edited, and how effects should be handled, have now been
precisely defined. Moreover, the available sounds have been
expanded. General MIDI 2 compliant sound generators are
capable of reliably playing back music files that carry either
the General MIDI or General MIDI 2 logo.
In some cases, the conventional form of General MIDI, which
does not include the new enhancements, is referred to as
“General MIDI 1” as a way of distinguishing it from General
MIDI 2.
The HP203 Allows You To Use the
Following Music Files
GS Format
VIMA TUNES
VIMA TUNES is a Roland specification for music files that
contains image and lyric data, allowing you to enjoy songs with
lyrics and images simultaneously. When data bearing the
“VIMA TUNES” logo is played back on a device that bears the
same logo, lyrics can be shown on the screen of a connected
external display or television, letting you enjoy karaoke or watch
a slide show.
* This instrument (HP203) is not able to play back VIMA
TUNES images.
SMF Music Files
SMFs (Standard MIDI Files) use a standard format for music file
that was formulated so that files containing music file could be
widely compatible, regardless of the manufacturer of the
listening device. An enormous variety of music is available,
whether it be for listening, for practicing musical instruments, for
Karaoke, etc.
The GS Format is Roland’s set of specifications for standardizing
the performance of sound generating devices. In addition to
including support for everything defined by the General MIDI,
the highly compatible GS Format additionally offers an
expanded number of sounds, provides for the editing of sounds,
and spells out many details for a wide range of extra features,
including effects such as reverb and chorus. Designed with the
future in mind, the GS Format can readily include new sounds
and support new hardware features when they arrive. Since it is
upwardly compatible with the General MIDI, Roland’s GS
Format is capable of reliably playing back GM Scores equally
as well as it performs GS music files (music files that have been
created with the GS Format in mind).
XG lite
XG is a tone generator format of YAMAHA Corporation, that
defines the ways in which voices are expanded or edited and
the structure and type of effects, in addition to the General
MIDI 1 specification. XGlite is a simplified version of XG tone
generation format. You can play back any XG music files
using an XGlite tone generator. However, keep in mind that
some music files may play back differently compared to the
original files, due to the reduced set of control parameters and
effects.
