Panel Descriptions
Connect pedals to these jacks.
Each jack controls a different pedal function.
Pedal Jack
Explanation
DAMPER/R jack
Acts as a damper pedal.
SOSTENUTO/C jack
By default, acts as a sostenuto pedal.
SOFT/L jack
By default, acts as a soft pedal.
• When connecting the included pedal, set the pedal’s side switch
to “Continuous.”
• If you wish, you can assign different functions to the pedals
connected to the SOSTENUTO/C and SOFT/L jacks (p. 39).
• The separately available RPU-3 pedal allows you to enjoy piano
performances at their fullest, since you can use three pedals.
Use this to sustain the sound.
While you hold down the damper pedal, notes will be sustained even if
you take your fingers off the keyboard. You can control the amount of
sustain applied by the way you press the pedal.
On an acoustic piano, pressing the damper pedal allows other strings
to resonate sympathetically with the notes you play, producing a rich
and spacious resonance. The FP-50 simulates this natural damper
resonance.
Sostenuto pedal
The notes you are pressing when this pedal is depressed will be
sustained.
Soft pedal
Use this to soften the sound.
When you play the keyboard while holding down the soft pedal,

SMF and audio recording
File Type
SMF recording
Explanation
A collection of data describing everything that happened while the music was played will be recorded.
Such data will include information about which keys
(pitches) were played, for how long, what amount of
force was applied, etc.
If you decide not to record, press the [REC] button once again.
MEMO
You can re-record only the music you played within a recording
you made of yourself playing along while an accompaniment
was played.
* In most cases you should use SMF recording.
An audio file stores actual sound data. You can easily
play these recordings on your computer.
Audio recording
* In order to use audio recording, you must connect
a USB flash drive (sold separately) to the USB
MEMORY port (p. 10).
* 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.
In this case, select the song you previously recorded in step 2,
and then press the [+] button.

Matching the Pitch with Other Instruments (Master Tuning)
When playing ensemble with other instruments and in other such instances, you can match the reference pitch with another instrument.
The reference 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.

Tuning
(Master Tuning)
Changing the Tuning System (Temperament)
You can play classical music such as baroque pieces using their original tuning.
Temprmnt
(Temperament)
In this tuning, each octave is divided into twelve equal steps. Every interval produces about the same amount
of slight dissonance.
MAJ (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.
MIN (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.
PYTH (Pythagorean)
This tuning, devised by the philosopher Pythagoras, eliminates dissonance in fourths and fifths.
Dissonance is produced by third-interval chords, but melodies are euphonious.
KIRN (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).
MEAN (Meantone)
This scale makes some compromises in just intonation, enabling transposition to other keys.
WERC (Werckmeister)
This temperament combines the Meantone and Pythagorean tunings. Performances are possible in all keys
(first technique, III).
ARB (Arabic)
This tuning is suitable for the music of Arabia.
Settings
EQU (Equal)
Registrations
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.
Specifying a Song’s Tonic (Temperament Key)
Tmpr Key
(Temperament Key)
When playing with tuning other than equal temperament, you need to specify the temperament key for tuning the song to be performed
(that is, the note that corresponds to “Do” for a major key or to “La“ for a minor key).
If you choose an equal temperament, there’s no need to select a temperament key.

Personalizing Your Piano (Piano Tone)

Dmpr Res
(Damper Resonance)
Strg Res
(String Resonance)
KOff Res

Sound Brd
(Soundboard Behavior)
OFF, ON
This lets you specify the amount of “stretch tuning,” a tuning method specifically for pianos, in which the high
range is tuned slightly sharper, and the low range is tuned slightly flatter.
OFF, 1–10
This adjusts the damper resonance of the acoustic piano sound (the sympathetic vibration produced in strings
other than those actually played when you press the damper pedal).
OFF, 1–10
This adjusts the string resonance of the acoustic piano sound (the sympathetic vibrations of strings for
previously played notes that occur when you play another note).
OFF, 1–10
This adjusts sympathetic vibrations such as an acoustic piano’s key-off sound (the subtle sound that occurs
when you release a note).
If you select “ON,” a standard tuning curve created for the FP-50 will be used.
Higher settings will make the sympathetic vibration louder.
Higher settings will make the sympathetic vibration louder.
Higher settings will make the sympathetic vibration louder.
OFF, 1–10
OFF, 1–10
Adjusts the body resonance of the grand piano itself.
Higher values will produce a larger body resonance.
When you play a chord, this setting improves the clarity of the individual notes in the chord, creating a more
beautiful resonance.
Higher settings produce a clearer resonance.
Specifying What to Transpose (Transpose Mode)
Trnspose

This setting specifies what the transpose will affect. You can use the transpose to change the pitch of both the song and the keyboard, the
pitch of only the song, or the pitch of only the keyboard.

Troubleshooting
If you suspect a malfunction, please read this section first.
Problem
Cause/Action
Page
Power will not turn on
Is the AC adaptor connected correctly?
p. 10
Power turns off on its own
With the factory settings, the unit’s power will automatically be switched off a certain amount of time
after you stop playing or operating the unit.
p. 33
If you don’t need the power to turn off automatically, turn the “Auto Off” setting “OFF.”
Buttons don’t work
Screen display is irregular when power is
turned on/off
Could Panel Lock be activated?
Deactivate Panel Lock.
Since the FP-50 uses a liquid-crystal display, you may find that it is unable to display letters or other
things in environments where temperatures go below 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). This
does not indicate a malfunction.
Is the pedal connected correctly?
Insert the plug all the way into the pedal jack.
Could you be using a pedal made by another manufacturer?
Pedal does not work, or remains stuck
Use the included pedal or the RPU-3.
The pedal effect may remain stuck if you disconnect the pedal cord while the power is on.
Switch off the FP-50’s power before you connect or disconnect the pedal cord.
If you’ve assigned the soft pedal or sostenuto pedal as a registration select switch, or assigned it to some
other function, the pedal won’t operate as a Soft pedal or Sostenuto pedal.
Are you using Roland USB Flash Memory (sold separately)?
Can’t read or write USB flash drive
We cannot guarantee operation if any other USB flash drive is used.
If you’re unable to read from or write to a USB flash drive, change the USB Memory Mode setting.
A buzzing sound is heard from an external
device
Could you be powering your external equipment from two or more electrical outlets?
The volume level of the instrument
connected to INPUT jack is too low
Could you be using a connection cable that contains a resistor?
If external equipment is connected, it must be powered from the same electrical outlet.
Use a connection cable that does not contain a resistor.

Problem
The maximum simultaneous polyphony is 128 notes.
Not all the notes you play are heard
Keyboard or song pitch is incorrect
46
When using Dual Play or when performing along with a song or rhythm, or when making heavy use of
the damper pedal, it is possible for the performance data to exceed the polyphony, causing some of the
notes you play to be omitted.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Pressing the [E. PIANO], [STRINGS], or
[OTHER] button causes other tones to be
heard
Page
Could the FP-50 be set to Dual Play?
p. 14
When the FP-50 is connected to an external sequencer, set the Local Control to “OFF.” Alternatively, the
sequencer could be set so its Soft Thru feature is off.
p. 41
The [E. PIANO], [STRINGS], and [OTHER] buttons can also function in selecting “recommended tones.”
With the factory settings, when you select a song from VIMA TUNES, tones which match the song will be
assigned automatically to the [E. PIANO], [STRINGS], and [OTHER] tone buttons.
–
Effect not applied
When you’re using Dual Play or Split Play, and the two tones use different effects, no effect will be applied
to tone 2 (when using Dual Play) or the left-hand tone (when using Split Play).
p. 14
Reverberation remains even if you turn off
the Ambience effect
The FP-50’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 turned off the Ambience effect.
On an acoustic piano, the top one and a half octaves of notes will sound until they decay naturally,
regardless of the damper pedal. The tone quality of these notes will also be different.
FP-50 faithfully simulate this characteristic of acoustic pianos. The range that is unaffected by the damper
pedal will change depending on the Transpose setting.
p. 15
–
Getting Ready
Sound changes abruptly at a certain note in
the upper range
Operation Guide
Two sounds are heard when you play the
keyboard
Cause/Action
–
If you hear this in headphones:
Some brilliant and sharply defined piano sounds contain significant high-frequency components, which
may sound like a metallic resonance has been added. This is due to the faithful simulation of a piano’s
actual characteristics, and does not indicate a malfunction.
A “whining” noise is heard
You can adjust this resonance by editing the following settings.
• String Resonance setting (p. 38)
• Ambience Depth setting (p. 17)
–
Performing
If you don’t hear this in headphones:
Some other reason may be responsible (e.g., resonance in the FP-50 itself ). Please contact your dealer or
Roland Service Center.
If you don’t hear this in headphones:
Performing at high volumes may cause the speakers or objects near the FP-50 to resonate. It is also
possible for fluorescent lights or glass doors in the room to resonate. For the low notes in particular, this is
more likely to occur at high volume. To minimize such resonance, take the following measures.
Something wrong with low-frequency
sounds/Buzzing resonance occurs
• Locate the speakers 10–15 cm away from the wall.
• Lower the volume.
• Move the resonating object farther away.

IMPORTANT NOTES
Repairs and Data
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is being used
by an electrical appliance that is controlled by an inverter or a motor
(such as a refrigerator, washing machine, microwave oven, or air
conditioner). 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.
• 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 flash drives, 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.
• The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after long hours of
consecutive use. This is normal, and is not a cause for concern.
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.
• 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. Excessive heat can deform or discolor the
unit.
• 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 put anything that contains water 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.
Maintenance
• Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
• When 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.
• To avoid disturbing others nearby, 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.
• The sound of keys being struck and vibrations produced by playing
an instrument can be transmitted through a floor or wall to an
unexpected extent. Please take care not to cause annoyance to others
nearby.
• When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box (including
padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise, you will need to use
equivalent packaging materials.
• Do not apply undue force to the music rest while it is in use.
• Use only the specified expression pedal (EV-5, EV-7; sold separately). By
connecting any other expression pedals, you risk causing malfunction
and/or damage to the unit.
• 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.
• The explanations in this manual include illustrations that depict what
should typically be shown by the display.
Note, however, that your unit may incorporate a newer, enhanced
version of the system (e.g., includes newer sounds), so what you
actually see in the display may not always match what appears in the
manual.
Settings
• For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth or one that
has been slightly dampened with water. To remove stubborn dirt, use a
cloth impregnated with a mild, non-abrasive detergent. Afterwards, be
sure to wipe the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
• 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.
Registrations
• Depending on the material and temperature of the surface on which
you place the unit, its rubber feet may discolor or mar the surface.
You can place a piece of felt or cloth under the rubber feet to prevent
this from happening. If you do so, please make sure that the unit will
not slip or move accidentally.
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data that
was stored in the unit’s memory or USB flash drives once it has been
lost. Roland Corporation assumes no liability concerning such loss of
data.
Recording
• 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.
• 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 USB flash drives.

interference by one or more of the following measures:
– Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
– Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
– Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
– Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment requires shielded interface cables in order to meet FCC class B limit.
Any unauthorized changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s
