A New Standard in Organic Sound,
Expression, and Realism
Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano Sound Engine evolves with Acoustic
Projection technology — an innovative, multi-dimensional sound system built into
the new HP500-series pianos. Acoustic Projection is inspired by the flagship
V-Piano Grand and its ability to reproduce the natural sound field of an acoustic piano.
The marriage of Roland’s world-leading technologies in the HP500-series empowers
pianists with a complete, immersive acoustic-piano experience.

Innovative Acoustic Projection
Sound System
The unique sound space that is created when you play an acoustic
piano — the resonance between strings and the resonance from
the piano’s frame or body — is realized through a complex and yet
harmonious combination of elements. The HP507 and HP505 create
this realistic sound space through innovative Acoustic Projection
technology, which marries the multi-dimensional sound system
found in the flagship V-Piano Grand with our SuperNATURAL Piano
sound engine. Acoustic Projection delivers its magic though
a multi-channel speaker system, with each speaker located properly
to project each sound element in its natural position. The sound
elements from each speaker are intelligently blended to reproduce
the true soundfield of an acoustic piano.
SuperNATURAL Piano Engine
All three of the new HP-series pianos incorporate Roland’s
SuperNATURAL Piano technology for seamless velocity response,
natural note decay, and authentic key-range behavior to reproduce
perfect piano sound and expression. Tone color changes seamlessly
in response to touch, accurately translating the player’s emotions.
Tone decay is natural and organic, with the decaying sound not only
decreasing in volume, but also gradually changing in color to a softer
tone. Each note has its own character, which creates variations in tonal
color and resonance of each note.
Authentic Fortepiano Tones Onboard
In addition to the selection of onboard grand-piano sounds, the new
HP500 series features a newly added Early Piano category containing
four fortepiano variations and two harpsichord variations. Masterpieces
composed by maestros such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin can be
played with the original sounds from the period. The appreciation
and understanding for the piece is heightened when using the instrument
that was actually used by the composers. You can also play these
early piano sounds with built-in historic temperaments which are
ideal to play with other classical instruments.
Real-Feel Keyboards
The HP507 and HP505 are equipped with Roland’s flagship PHA III
(Progressive Hammer Action III) Ivory Feel keyboard with Escapement.
The HP503 contains an Ivory Feel-S keyboard with Escapement. With
fast key-repetition and sensitivity, these keyboard faithfully translates
into sound the subtle differences in tones from different playing styles
and force at which they are played. The keys are finished with material
that provides moisture-absorbing properties, resulting in a keyboard
with the natural texture and tactile sensation of real ivory and ebony.
Progressive Damper Action Pedal
The HP500 series is equipped with “Progressive Damper Action
Pedals” that have light resistance at the beginning of the stroke and
more resistance the instant they begin to take effect, just like real
acoustic pianos. This makes it easy for the performer to know when
the pedals begin to take effect, and also allows half-pedal techniques
for subtle control of aftertones and resonance. This pedal can
accurately convey the techniques of the most demanding pianists.
Built-In Audio/MIDI Recorder
with Flexible Control (HP507/505)
The built-in recorder lets you capture your performances as audio
and/or MIDI data — a convenient feature for pianists, as well as
students who want to evaluate their playing (HP507/505/503).
Connect an external digital music player to the input jacks, play a
song file, and the HP507 and 505 can transpose it in real time. You
can even minimize the melody of an audio song using the Center
Cancel function. Play along and capture your performance as
audio data. Recorded audio data can be saved onto USB Memory,
and copied to an external computer for making audio CDs or for
uploading to the Internet.
*USB memory is required for audio recording.
**The HP503 captures your performance, as well as play backed SMF data as audio data.
Ease of Use
The simple and intuitive control panels afford quick and easy
access to the HP500 series’ numerous features and applications.
LCD panels provide the ideal visual interface with the instrument.
Environment-Conscious Design
All HP500-series pianos achieve low power consumption while still
delivering high-impact performance. They also feature an Auto Off
function, which, when activated, automatically switches the power
off after a specified period of inactivity; inactivity time is selectable
from 10 minutes, 30 minutes (default), 240 minutes, and off.
