ALWAYS OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING
Do not open or perform any internal modifications on the unit.
Do not attempt to repair the unit, or replace parts within it (except when
this manual provides specific instructions directing you to do so). Refer all
servicing to your retailer, the nearest Roland Service Center, or an authorized Roland distributor, as listed on the “Information” page.
Never install the unit in any of the following locations.
• Subject to temperature extremes (e.g., direct sunlight in an enclosed
vehicle, near a heating duct, on top of heat-generating equipment); or
are
• Damp (e.g., baths, washrooms, on wet floors); or are
• Exposed to steam or smoke; or are
• Subject to salt exposure; or are
• Humid; or are
• Exposed to rain; or are
• Dusty or sandy; or are
• Subject to high levels of vibration and shakiness.
Make sure you always have the unit placed so it is level and sure to remain
stable. Never place it on stands that could wobble, or on inclined surfaces
The unit should be connected to a power supply only of the type described as marked on the rear panel of unit.
Use only the attached power-supply cord. Also, the supplied power cord
must not be used with any other device.
Do not excessively twist or bend the power cord, nor place heavy objects
on it. Doing so can damage the cord, producing severed elements and
short circuits. Damaged cords are fire and shock hazards!
This unit, either alone or in combination with an amplifier and headphones or speakers, may be capable of producing sound levels that could
cause permanent hearing loss. Do not operate for a long period of time at
a high volume level, or at a level that is uncomfortable. If you experience
any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, you should immediately stop using
the unit, and consult an audiologist.
Do not place containers containing liquid (e.g., flower vases) on this
product. Never allow foreign objects (e.g., flammable objects, coins, wires)

6
Immediately turn the power off, remove the power cord from the outlet,
and request servicing by your retailer, the nearest Roland Service Center,
or an authorized Roland distributor, as listed on the “Information” page
when:
• The power-supply cord or the plug has been damaged; or
• If smoke or unusual odor occurs
• Objects have fallen into, or liquid has been spilled onto the unit; or
• The unit has been exposed to rain (or otherwise has become wet); or
• The unit does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked
change in performance.
In households with small children, an adult should provide supervision
until the child is capable of following all the rules essential for the safe
operation of the unit.
Protect the unit from strong impact.
(Do not drop it!)
Do not force the unit’s power-supply cord to share an outlet with an
unreasonable number of other devices. Be especially careful when using
extension cords—the total power used by all devices you have connected
to the extension cord’s outlet must never exceed the power rating (watts/
amperes) for the extension cord. Excessive loads can cause the insulation
on the cord to heat up and eventually melt through.
Before using the unit in a foreign country, consult with your retailer, the
nearest Roland Service Center, or an authorized Roland distributor, as
listed on the “Information” page.
DO NOT play a CD-ROM disc on a conventional audio CD player. The resulting sound may be of a level that could cause permanent hearing loss.
Damage to speakers or other system components may result.
USING THE UNIT SAFELY
The unit should be located so that its location or position does not interfere with its proper ventilation.
Always grasp only the plug on the power-supply cord when plugging into,
or unplugging from, an outlet or this unit.
At regular intervals, you should unplug the power plug and clean it by
using a dry cloth to wipe all dust and other accumulations away from its
prongs. Also, disconnect the power plug from the power outlet whenever
the unit is to remain unused for an extended period of time. Any accumulation of dust between the power plug and the power outlet can result in
poor insulation and lead to fire.
Try to prevent cords and cables from becoming entangled. Also, all cords
and cables should be placed so they are out of the reach of children.
Never climb on top of, nor place heavy objects on the unit.
Never handle the power cord or its plugs with wet hands when plugging
into, or unplugging from, an outlet or this unit.
You must make sure that a sufficient number of people are on hand to
help, so you can lift and move it safely, without causing strain. Make sure
to have a firm grip, to protect yourself from injury and the instrument from
damage. If you need to move the instrument, take note of the precautions
listed below.
• Check to make sure the screws securing the unit to the stand have not
become loose. Fasten them again securely whenever you notice any
loosening.
• Disconnect the power cord.
• Disconnect all cords coming from external devices.
• Raise the adjusters on the stand (p. 28).
• Close the lid.
• Remove the music stand.
Before cleaning the unit, turn off the power and unplug the power cord
from the outlet (p. 15).
Whenever you suspect the possibility of lightning in your area, pull the
plug on the power cord out of the outlet.
Be careful when opening/closing the lid so you do not get your fingers
pinched (p. 15). Adult supervision is recommended whenever small children
use the unit.
When using the stool, please observe the following points:
• Do not use the stool as a toy, or as a stepping stool.
• Do not allow two or more persons to sit on the stool.
• Do not adjust the height while sitting on the stool.
• Do not sit on the stool if the bolts holding the stool legs are loose. (If the
bolts are loose, immediately re-tighten them using the supplied tool.)
• Never insert your hand into the gap (the metal height adjustment
mechanism) under the seat lid. Doing so may cause your hand to be
pinched or injured.
Always keep the following small parts that may be removed out of the
reach of small children to avoid accidental ingestion of these parts.

Important Notes
Power Supply
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is being used
by an electrical appliance that is controlled by an inverter (such as a
refrigerator, washing machine, microwave oven, or air conditioner),
or that contains a motor. Depending on the way in which the
electrical appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit to
malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not practical to use a
separate electrical outlet, connect a power supply noise filter between
this unit and the electrical outlet.
• Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the power to all
units. This will help prevent malfunctions and/or damage to speakers
or other devices.
• Although the screen and indicators are switched off when the POWER
switch is switched off, this does not mean that the unit has been
completely disconnected from the source of power. If you need to turn
off the power completely, first turn off the POWER switch, then unplug
the power cord from the power outlet. For this reason, the outlet into
which you choose to connect the power cord’s plug should be one
that is within easy reach and readily accessible.
Placement
• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment containing
large power transformers) may induce hum. To alleviate the problem,
change the orientation of this unit; or move it farther away from the
source of interference.
• This device may interfere with radio and television reception. Do not
use this device in the vicinity of such receivers.
• Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices, such as
cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of this unit. Such noise could
occur when receiving or initiating a call, or while conversing. Should
you experience such problems, you should relocate such wireless
devices so they are at a greater distance from this unit, or switch them
off.
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near devices that
radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed vehicle, or otherwise subject
it to temperature extremes. Also, do not allow lighting devices that
normally are used while their light source is very close to the unit (such
as a piano light), or powerful spotlights to shine upon the same area
of the unit for extended periods of time. Excessive heat can deform or
discolor the unit.
• When moved from one location to another where the temperature
and/or humidity is very different, water droplets (condensation) may
form inside the unit. Damage or malfunction may result if you attempt
to use the unit in this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you
must allow it to stand for several hours, until the condensation has
completely evaporated.
• Do not allow rubber, vinyl, or similar materials to remain on this
unit for long periods of time. Such objects can discolor or otherwise
harmfully affect the finish.
• Do not allow objects to remain on top of the keyboard. This can be the
cause of malfunction, such as keys ceasing to produce sound.
• Do not paste stickers, decals, or the like to this instrument. Peeling
such matter off the instrument may damage the exterior finish.
• Do not put anything that contains water (e.g., flower vases) on this
unit. Also, avoid the use of insecticides, perfumes, alcohol, nail polish,
spray cans, etc., near the unit. Swiftly wipe away any liquid that spills
on the unit using a dry, soft cloth.
8
Maintenance
• To clean the unit, use a dry, soft cloth; or one that is slightly dampened.
Try to wipe the entire surface using an equal amount of strength,
moving the cloth along with the grain of the wood. Rubbing too hard
in the same area can damage the finish.
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind, to avoid
the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
• The pedals of this unit are made of brass.
Brass eventually darkens as the result of the natural oxidization
process. If the brass becomes tarnished, polish it using commercially
available metal polisher.
Repairs and Data
• Please be aware that all data contained in the unit’s memory may be
lost when the unit is sent for repairs. Important data should always be
backed up USB memories, or written down on paper (when possible).
During repairs, due care is taken to avoid the loss of data. However, in
certain cases (such as when circuitry related to memory itself is out of
order), we regret that it may not be possible to restore the data, and
Roland assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.
Additional Precautions
• Please be aware that the contents of memory can be irretrievably lost
as a result of a malfunction, or the improper operation of the unit.
To protect yourself against the risk of loosing important data, we
recommend that you periodically save a backup copy of important
data you have stored in the unit's memory on a USB memory.
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data
that was stored in the unit's memory or a USB memory once it has
been lost. Roland Corporation assumes no liability concerning such
loss of data.
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit's buttons, sliders,
or other controls; and when using its jacks and connectors. Rough
handling can lead to malfunctions.
• Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
• When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp the connector
itself—never pull on the cable. This way you will avoid causing shorts,
or damage to the cable’s internal elements.
• A small amount of heat will radiate from the unit during normal
operation.
• To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit's volume at
reasonable levels. You may prefer to use headphones, so you do not
need to be concerned about those around you.
• When you need to transport the unit, pack it in shock-absorbent
material. Transporting the unit without doing so can cause it to
become scratched or damaged, and could lead to malfunction.
• Do not apply undue force to the music stand while it is in use.
Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use cables that
incorporate resistors for connecting to this unit. The use of such cables
can cause the sound level to be extremely low, or impossible to hear.
For information on cable specifications, contact the manufacturer of
the cable.
Important Notes
• Before opening or closing the keyboard lid, always make sure that
no pets or other small animals are located on top of the instrument
(in particular, they should be kept away from the keyboard and its
lid). Otherwise, due to the structural design of this instrument, small
pets or other animals could end up getting trapped inside it. If such a
situation is encountered, you must immediately switch off the power
and disconnect the power cord from the outlet. You should then
consult with the retailer from whom the instrument was purchased, or
contact the nearest Roland Service Center.
Using External Memories
Carefully insert a USB memory all the way in—until it is firmly in place.
• Never touch the External Memory connector. Also, avoid getting the
terminals dirty.
• USB memories are constructed using precision components; handle
the cards carefully, paying particular note to the following.
• To prevent damage to the USB memories from static electricity, be
sure to discharge any static electricity from your own body before
handling the USB memories.
• Do not touch or allow metal to come into contact with the contact
portion of the USB memories.
• Do not bend, drop, or subject USB memories to strong shock or
vibration.
• Do not keep USB memories in direct sunlight, in closed vehicles, or
other such locations.

Cautions when Using a Microphone
• Be careful of high volume levels when using mikes late at night or early in the morning.
• When connecting a microphone to the HPi-7F, be sure to lower the volume. If the volume control is too high when the microphone is plugged in, noise
may be produced by the speakers.
• Howling could be produced depending on the location of microphones relative to speakers. This can be remedied by:
• Changing the orientation of the microphone.
• Relocating microphone at a greater distance from speakers.
• Lowering volume levels.

“Changing the Notation Screen Settings” (p. 76).
• The fingering numbers shown in the screen indicate one possible fingering.
• The notation marks displayed by the HPi-7F represent only one set of possibilities, and are not intended to limit the expressiveness of your
performances.
About the Notation Screen
• When you begin song playback, the performance data will be read from USB memory or internal memory. It may take several tens of seconds for the
data to be loaded. Please be patient.
• The displayed notation is generated from the music files, and priority is given to making the display easy to read rather than reproducing a complicated
or difficult performance accurately. For this reason, you may notice differences when compared with commercially available sheet music. In particular,
this is not suitable for display of sophisticated or complex songs that require detailed notations.
• In the notation screen, lyrics or notes may fall outside the display range of the screen, and fail to be shown.
• A notation cannot be displayed for a song from a music CD or audio file.
• If you display the notation or change the displayed part during song playback, the song may sometimes play back from the beginning.
• Using this music notation for any purpose other than personal enjoyment without permission from the copyright holder is a violation of applicable law.

Perform Using Various Sounds
The HPi-7F lets you perform using piano sounds as well as a wide variety (more than 300 types) of other sounds.
Each of these sounds is called a “tone.” The tones are organized into four groups, and these groups are assigned to the four tone buttons.
Let’s start by playing a piano tone. When you turn on the power, “Grand Piano 1” will be automatically selected.

Performing
Using the Pedals
The pedals perform the following operations. You’ll use them mainly
when playing piano.
About the Adjuster
If you feel that the pedal is unstable (for example if you’ve moved the
HPi-7F to a different location), you can adjust the adjuster located on
the bottom of the pedals as follows.
Soft Pedal
Sostenuto Pedal
Damper 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.
MEMO
When you press the damper pedal of an acoustic piano, a slight
noise is heard when the damper frees the strings, and a richly
spacious resonance is added by the strings that vibrate in sympathy
with the strings of the notes you actually play. The HPi-7F replicates
the sound created when the damper releases the string (“damper
noise”) and the sympathetic vibration (“damper resonance”).
You can modify the sound of the damper releasing the string and
the sound of the sympathetic vibration (p. 40).
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.
MEMO
You can switch the function of the sostenuto pedal and soft pedal
(p. 73).
NOTE
If you disconnect the pedal cord from the HPi-7F while the power is
turned on, the pedal effect will remain applied. You must connect
or disconnect the pedal cord while the HPi-7F’s power is switched
off.
28
Adjuster
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 HPi-7F on
carpet, you must turn the adjuster until it is pressing firmly against the
floor.
Performing
Performing with the Metronome
You can play while listening to the metronome.
The HPi-7F’s metronome allows you to change the volume and time signature for the metronome, as well as the way in which the beats are divided.

Using 16 Parts for Multitrack Recording/
Playback
Multitrack recording (overdubbing) is a method by which you can
record additional parts while listening to previously recorded parts
play back.
The HPi-7F provides 16 parts for multitrack recording. One tone can
be recorded on each part, meaning that you can create song data by
overdubbing performances for up to 16 different tones.
The “16-track sequencer” function lets you record and play back each
of these 16 parts individually.
• Images of resolutions up to 1280 x 960 pixels
can be shown, but in this case, please ensure
that the file size does not exceed 400 KB.
• Taking a photo at greater than the
recommended resolution will not improve the
image shown in the screen. Also, a larger image
size will also occupy a greater amount of data,
which may lengthen the time it takes for the
images to be switched.
Format

16-Track Sequencer and Track Buttons
In addition to the “16-track sequencer,” the HPi-7F’s recording and
playback functionality also includes the “track buttons” (p. 42). These
track buttons combine the 16-track sequencer’s 16 parts into four
buttons. This means that after you’ve used the track buttons to
record your performance, you can then use the 16-track sequencer to
overdub additional parts, or to edit your performance in greater detail.
The track buttons correspond with the parts of the 16-track sequencer
as follows.
Track buttons

[Accomp] button
Parts other than left-hand, right-hand, and part 1 (i.e.,
parts 2 and 5–16)
[User] button
Part 1
[Left] button
Left-hand part (part 3)
[Right] button
Right-hand part (part 4)
Since the 16-track sequencer records one tone on each part, you

Connecting Other Devices
Connecting to MIDI Devices
By connecting an external MIDI device and exchanging performance
data, you can control one device from the other.
For instance, you can output sound from the other instrument or
switch Tones on the other instrument.
Playing a MIDI Sound Module from
the HPi-7F
Make these connections if you want performance data from the HPi-7F
to be sent to a MIDI sound module, causing the MIDI sound module to
produce sound.
What’s MIDI
MIDI, short of “Musical Instrument Digital Interface,” was developed as
a universal standard for the exchange of performance data between
electronic instruments and computers.
The HPi-7F is equipped with MIDI connectors to let it exchange
performance data with external devices. These connectors can be used
to connect the HPi-7F to an external device for even greater versatility.
Caution when connecting a MIDI device
• To prevent malfunction and damage to your speakers, always be sure
to turn the volume all the way down on all your equipment, then
switch the power off on everything before you make any connections.
Connecting the HPi-7F to a MIDI Sequencer
Make these connections if you want your performance on the HPi-7F
to be recorded on the MIDI sequencer, or a recorded performance to
be played back by the sequencer.

Preventing Doubled Notes from the Sound
Generator when a Sequencer is Connected
If you connect a MIDI sequencer to the HPi-7F, set the Local Control
setting to “Local Off.”
A MIDI sequencer will typically have its “Thru” function turned on,
meaning that the notes from the keyboard will reach the sound
generating section by two routes: internally within the HPi-7F itself,
and also via the MIDI sequencer. This will cause notes to be sounded in
duplicate, or to be cut off inappropriately. To prevent this, you should
disconnect the internal route by choosing the “Local Off” setting.
When set to Local On
Here’s how to set the MIDI channel that the HPi-7F will use for
transmission.
MIDI uses sixteen “MIDI channels” (1–16). When MIDI devices are
connected, and the MIDI channels of the devices are set to match, a
device can play notes or select tones on the other device.
1. Press the [Function] button ➝ [MIDI] ➝ [O] button ➝
[Tx Channel] (p. 24).
2. Use the cursor up/down buttons to change the setting.
MEMO
• If you turn this “Off,” the HPi-7F will not transmit MIDI data.
• The HPi-7F can receive all channels 1–16.

Connecting Other Devices
Connecting a Computer
If you use a commercially available USB cable to connect the USB
connector located on the bottom left of the HPi-7F to your computer,
you’ll be able to do the following things.
• SMF data played back by your computer software can make the
HPi-7F play sounds.
• MIDI data can be transferred between your sequencer software and
the HPi-7F for more sophisticated music production and editing.
MEMO
Refer to the Roland website for system requirements.
Caution when connecting a Computer
• To prevent malfunction and damage to your speakers, always be sure
to turn the volume all the way down on all your equipment, then
switch the power off on everything before you make any connections.
USB Driver Settings
Normally, there’s no need to install a driver in your computer. However,
if you are unable to successfully connect the HPi-7F to your computer,
you may be able to solve the problem by using the Roland original
driver.
Using V-LINK
Connecting the HPi-7F to a V-LINK compatible image device allows you
to control the images with the HPi-7F.
• To prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or other devices,
always turn down the volume, and turn off the power on all devices
before making any connections.
V-LINK
V-LINK (
) is a function that allows music and images to
be performed together. By using MIDI to connect two or more V-LINK

Tone buttons [E. Piano] [Strings] [Others] also operate as buttons that select “Recommended Tones.”
The wrong instrument is selected when you
press the [E. Piano], [Strings], or [Others]
button
Effect does not apply
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 [E. Piano], [Strings],
and [Others] Tone buttons, so that you can select “recommended” sounds by pressing one of these
buttons.
When you are using Dual play or Split play, and different effects are specified for the two selected
tones, the effect will not be applied to Tone 2 (when using Dual play) or the left-hand tone (when
using Split play).
The depth of the reverb effect for the song that’s playing will not change.
Reverberation remains even if You defeat
the Reverb effect
The sound of the higher notes suddenly
changes from a certain key
The HPi-7F’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.
Also, you may be able to eliminate some reverberation by reducing the value set for “Cabinet
Resonance.”
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. HPi-7F faithfully simulate this characteristic of acoustic pianos. On the HPi-7F, the
range that is unaffected by the damper pedal will change according to the key transpose setting.

If you hear this in headphones:
High-pitched ringing is heard
Piano sounds that have a brilliant and crisp character contain substantial high-frequency
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.
If you set the volume to the maximum setting, the sound may be distorted depending on how you
perform.
P. 16, P. 73
If this occurs, turn down the volume. Alternatively, lower the master gain.
If you don’t hear this in headphones:
Low notes sound wrong, or are buzzy
Performing at high volumes may cause the speakers or objects near the HPi-7F 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.
If you hear this in headphones:
It is likely that there is some other reason. Please contact your dealer or a nearby Roland service
center.
Is the pedal connected correctly?
Plug the cable firmly into the pedal connector.
If you disconnect the pedal cord from the HPi-7F while the power is on, the pedal effect may remain
“stuck” in the On condition.
P. 14
—
You must power-off the HPi-7F before connecting or disconnecting the pedal cord.
Could you have changed how the pedal effect is applied?
Pedal does not work, or is “stuck”
If the right pedal part is set to Right, the pedal will apply only to the right tone; if it is set to Left, the
pedal will apply only to the left tone.
P. 73
Could Twin Piano be turned on?
If Twin Piano is on, the right pedal will affect only the right-hand keyboard zone and the left pedal
will affect only the left-hand keyboard zone.
