V-Piano-Grand_e.book 3 ページ 2011年2月10日 木曜日 午後12時4分
The joy of playing your very own piano
The V-Piano Grand lets you create your own personalized piano by freely
adjusting qualities such as the tuning and the hardness of the hammers.
This means that you can adjust the sound of the piano suitably for the
song or for your own playing style, and even change the sound while you
play.
Futuristic piano sounds
In addition to the sound of a standard piano (Vintage Piano), you can
enjoy a variety of futuristic piano sounds (Vanguard Piano) such as a
piano with all strings completely wound with silver wire—something
that is impossible for an acoustic piano, due to its physical limitations.
Classical compositions will reveal new modes of enjoyment when played
on a Vanguard Piano.
Hear your own performance from the audience seating
The V-Piano Grand can record your performance and then play it back
just like you played it.
This means that after playing a performance on stage, you can then hear
it again from the listener’s position.
This allows you to hear not only the content of the performance but also
the playback environment—another unique advantage of the V-Piano
Grand that benefits you even during rehearsals.

013
107b
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

outlet or this unit.
.................................................................................................................................
.................................................................................................................................
014
108d_revised
Protect the unit from strong impact.
(Do not drop it!)
Since this product is very heavy, 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 bolts 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.
• Close the top.
• Close the lid.
• Fold down the music stand.
.................................................................................................................................
015
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.
.................................................................................................................................
016
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.
.................................................................................................................................
109a
Before cleaning the unit, turn off the power and
unplug the power cord from the outlet (p. 18).
.................................................................................................................................
023
DO NOT play a CD-ROM disc on a conventional audio
CD player. The resulting sound may be of a level that

Power Supply
Maintenance
301
401c_revised
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.
Since your piano has a polished finish that is as delicate as that found
on finely crafted wooden furniture, it needs careful, periodic care. A
few important suggestions concerning the proper care of the unit
follow.
• For dusting, using a soft, clean cloth and/or piano-use feather
duster. Be sure to wipe gently.
Even the tiniest grains of sand or grit can leave scratches on the
surface if too much force is applied while wiping. Do not use any
cleaners or detergents, since they might deteriorate the surface of
the cabinet, and produce cracks.
• If the cabinet’s surface loses its luster, wipe it thoroughly with a
soft cloth dampened with a little of the polishing liquid. Do not
use any cleaners or detergents, since they might deteriorate the
surface of the cabinet, and produce cracks. Do not use dusting
cloths that contain chemicals.
307
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.
308
Although the LCD and LEDs 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.
402
Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind, to avoid
the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
403
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.
Placement
351
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.
352a
This device may interfere with radio and television reception. Do not
use this device in the vicinity of such receivers.
352b
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.
Repairs and Data
452
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.
354b
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.
355b
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.
356
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.
358
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.
359
Do not paste stickers, decals, or the like to this instrument. Peeling
such matter off the instrument may damage the exterior finish.
361
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.

Additional Precautions
Using External Memories
551
704
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.
552
Carefully insert the USB memories all the way in—
until it is firmly in place.
705
Never touch the terminals of the USB memories.
Also, avoid getting the terminals dirty.
708
USB memories are constructed using precision
components; handle the cards carefully, paying
particular note to the following.
• To prevent damage to the cards from static electricity, be sure to
discharge any static electricity from your own body before
handling the cards.
• Do not touch or allow metal to come into contact with the contact
portion of the cards.
• Do not bend, drop, or subject cards to strong shock or vibration.
• Do not keep cards in direct sunlight, in closed vehicles, or other
such locations.
• Do not allow cards to become wet.
• Do not disassemble or modify the cards.
Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data
that was stored in the unit’s memory or USB memories once it has
been lost. Roland Corporation assumes no liability concerning such
loss of data.
553
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.
554
Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
555
A small amount of noise may be heard from the display during
normal operation.
556
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.
Handling CDs
801
557
Avoid touching or scratching the shiny underside (encoded surface)
of the disc. Damaged or dirty CD discs may not be read properly.
Keep your discs clean using a commercially available CD cleaner.
A small amount of heat will radiate from the unit during normal
operation.
558a
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.
558e

Using the Pedals
The pedals perform the following operations. You’ll use them mainly when playing piano.
fig.pedalName_e.eps
Soft Pedal
Damper Pedal
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.
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 V-Piano Grand 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. 41).
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 soft pedal (p. 39).

Connecting Headphones
This instrument has two Phones jacks.
Since two people can use headphones simultaneously, this is convenient for lessons or when playing duets.
It also allows you to play late at night without inconveniencing other people.
1. Connect your headphones to a Phones jack in the jack panel located on the bottom left of the piano.
If headphones are connected, no sound will be produced from the piano’s speakers.
Use the front panel [Volume] knob to adjust the volume of the headphones.
• Use headphones that have a stereo 1/4” phone plug.
• When disconnecting cables from the headphone jacks, grasp the plug (not the cable itself); the cable may be damaged if you
pull the cable itself.
• 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 strain the headphones, but may also damage your hearing. Please enjoy music at an appropriate
volume.

The V-Piano Grand’s Parameters
Tones
When shipped from the factory, the V-Piano Grand contains 30 “preset tones.” Of these, two tones that are particularly recommended
are in the Grand group.
You can customize these preset tones in the V-Piano Grand’s Tone screen (p. 25) or by using the included V-Piano Editor (p. 47).
A customized preset tone can be saved in the V-Piano Grand as a “user tone” (p. 42).
The V-Piano Grand can internally store 100 user tones.
You can select and play one of the 30 preset tones or 100 user tones (p. 29).
Setups
You can store the V-Piano Grand’s settings, and then switch between your favorite settings or choose settings that are appropriate for
the song you’re playing. Each such set of settings is called a “setup.”
The V-Piano Grand lets you store 100 setups (p. 49).
You can recall and play one of these 100 setups (p. 48).
When you switch on the V-Piano Grand’s power, setup number 001 will be selected automatically. If you save your favorite
tone and settings in setup number 001, that sound and those settings will be available to play as soon as you switch on the
V-Piano Grand.
System parameters
Settings used by the entire V-Piano Grand are called “system parameters” (p. 58). The values of the system parameters do not change
when you switch setups or tones.
If you don’t want the pedal setting to change when you switch setups, you can save this setting as system parameters.

Shifting the Pitch (Transpose)
The “Transpose” function lets you change the pitch without changing your keyboard fingering.
This is convenient when you need to play in a different key in order to match the range of a vocalist, or when playing from notation
that was written for a transposing instrument such as a trumpet.
The transposition range is from -1 octaves (-12 semitones) to +1 octaves (+12 semitones) in semitone steps.
If the transposition setting causes any keys to exceed the range of A0–C8, those keys may sound one octave higher (or lower).
The MIDI Out connector and USB Computer connector will transmit note messages as transposed by this setting.
Note messages received via the MIDI In connector or USB Computer connector will not be transposed.
The transpose setting is saved as setup data (p. 48).
1. While holding down the [Transpose] button, press a key.
For example, if you want the “E” pitch to sound when you play the “C” key, hold down the [Transpose] button and press the E4 key.
This specifies a transpose setting of “+4.”

Customizing the V-Piano Grand’s Sounds
The V-Piano Grand contains 30 different “tones.”
Parameter
Value
These sounds are produced by a virtual piano inside the V-Piano
Grand. Unlike the way in which conventional digital pianos create
sound by processing samples recorded from an acoustic piano, the
V-Piano Grand uses digital signal processing to model the numerous
elements that make up an acoustic piano, and combines these to
create the sound of the piano.
The 30 “tones” built into the V-Piano Grand are not simple variations
of the sound. Rather, they are forms of pianos constructed within
the V-Piano Grand. By customizing these tones you can construct
your very own piano.
Unison Tune
-100–+100
The V-Piano Grand’s Parameters
Parameter
Sound Lift
Soft Pedal
Sense
String
Resonance
Value
Description
0–+100
This changes how the sound is produced when
you play the keyboard softly.
You can adjust this to make the sound suitable
for solo playing, or to prevent your sound from
being buried by the other instruments of your
band.
With higher settings, the sound will be relatively
loud even when you play lightly, preventing
your sound from being lost in the band.
-100–+100
This adjusts the sensitivity of the soft pedal.
-100–+100
This adjusts the sympathetic vibration of the
strings that occurs when you play the keyboard.
This simulates not only the sympathetic
vibration that occurs when you play a single
note, but also the sympathetic vibration that
occurs in strings that are already sounding
when you play subsequent notes.
Increasing this value will produce a greater
effect.
Damper
Resonance
-100–+100
This adjusts the damper resonance of an
acoustic piano; i.e., the sound of other strings
sympathetically vibrating when you play other
keys with the damper pedal held down.
Increasing this value will increase the loudness
of the sympathetic vibration.
Soundboard
Resonance
-100–+100
This adjusts the sound of the soundboard
resonating in response to the notes you play.
Increasing this value will increase the
soundboard resonance.
-100–+100
This adjusts the amount of resonances such as
an acoustic piano’s key-off sound (the subtle
sound that occurs when you release a key).
Increasing this value will increase the amount of
resonance.
Key Off
Resonance
Description
Normally, there are three strings for each key of
a piano (lower notes have one or two strings). A
beautiful resonance can be created by slightly
detuning the pitch of these strings.
Adjusting this parameter to a higher positive (+)
value will increase the pitch differences
between the 2nd string and the 1st and 3rd
strings.
When this value is 0, the three strings will be
detuned as they are on a typically tuned piano.
Adjusting this parameter to a lower negative (-)
value will decrease the pitch differences between
the 2nd string and the 1st and 3rd strings. With
the setting of -100, the pitch differences between
the three strings will be minimum.
This parameter lets you make detailed
adjustments to the pitch of the 1st string and 3rd
string (p. 46).
For tones of the “Vintage” piano
type (p. 31), this effect won’t be
applied to notes below the E1 key.

Noise Level
---
Most pianos are tuned so that the lower range is
flatter and the upper range is sharper than the
theoretically calculated pitches of equal
temperament. This makes chords sound more
beautiful. This method of tuning is distinctive to
pianos, and is called “Stretch Tuning.”
On the V-Piano Grand, the difference relative to
equal temperament can be adjusted
individually for each key. For details, refer to
“Editing the Stretch Tune” (p. 44).
-100–+100
This adjusts the hardness of the hammer felt.
Increasing this value will make the felt harder,
producing a bolder sound.
Decreasing this value will make the felt softer,
producing a softer tone.
-100–+100
This adjusts the proportion of the various
parasitic vibrations that occur along with the
basic vibration of the strings, which produces
the basic sound of the piano.
Increasing this value will increase the
proportion of the parasitic vibration.
For the strings of the low notes in particular, this
will increase the metallic resonance of the highfrequency range.
Lowering this value will decrease the proportion
of the parasitic vibration.
-100–+100
This adjusts the time over which the volume
decays after reaching its peak.
Increasing this value will lengthen the time over
which the volume decays; reducing this value
will shorten the time.
-7–+7
This adjusts the tone color of the strings.
Increasing this value will produce a sharper and
brighter sound as though the strings had
become thinner.
Decreasing this value will produce a milder and
warmer sound as though the strings had
become thicker.
-100–+100
This adjusts the time from when the damper
touches the strings until the sound disappears;
i.e., the length of the release.
Increasing this value will lengthen the release,
and decreasing this value will shorten the
release.
-100–+100
This adjusts the damper noise of an acoustic
piano; i.e., the sound that is heard when you
press the damper pedal to release the strings.
Increasing this value will increase the sound
heard when the strings are released.

–
Have settings for Stretch Tune been made?
p. 44
Has the V-Piano Grand gone out of tune? Check the following settings.
• Master Tune settings
• Temperament settings
p. 58
Have you set Transpose?
p. 35
The volume level of the instrument
connected to the Input connector
is too low.
Could you be using a connection cable that contains a resistor?
Use a connection cable that does not contain a resistor.
–
Even though you’re using
headphones and the sound is
muted, a thumping sound is heard
when you play the keyboard
The V-Piano Grand uses a hammer action keyboard in order to simulate an acoustic piano’s playing touch as
realistically as possible. The thump of the hammers will be heard when you play the keyboard; this is not a
malfunction.
If vibration transmitted to the floor or walls is a concern, you may be able to minimize the vibration by moving the
piano away from the wall, or by laying down a commercially available anti-vibration mat designed for use with
pianos.
–
Song data not played back
correctly
Is the audio data playable?
• Make sure that the audio data can be played by the V-Piano Grand.
p. 55
Nothing appears in the screen
Since the V-Piano Grand uses a liquid crystal screen, it may happen that no text or graphics appear in the screen if
the temperature is below zero degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit).
–
Vertical lines appear in the screen/
Color is “washed out” at the edges
of the screen
These occur due to the nature of a liquid crystal display, and do not indicate a malfunction. They can be minimized
by adjusting the contrast of the screen.
p. 22
Pedal does not work, or is “stuck”/
Pedal does not operate correctly
Is the pedal connected correctly?
• Plug the cord firmly into the Pedal connector.
p. 13

Troubleshooting
Check/Solution
Page
Are you using (optional) Roland USB memory?
• Reliable performance cannot be guaranteed if you use non-Roland USB memory products.
–
If you are unable to read or write USB memory successfully, change the USB Memory Mode setting.
p. 59
Reverberation remains even if you
turn off the ambience effect
Since the V-Piano Grand simulates the sympathetic resonance of the strings, you may hear what sounds like
reverberation even when Ambience is turned off.
–
The sound of the higher notes
suddenly changes from a certain
key
The tonal character will change at boundaries where there is a change in the number of strings per key or between
wound and unwound strings.
–
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 ambience effect is applied
heavily, so you may be able to minimize it by decreasing the ambience.
p. 32
Low notes sound wrong, or are
buzzy
With certain tones, the sounds may seem to be distorted. Turn down the volume. Alternatively, lower the master
gain setting.
p. 19
You can not rewind or fast-forward while music files are being read in. Wait until processing finishes.
–
If you attempt to play back performance data that contains more data than the entire capacity of the V-Piano
Grand’s memory, you may find that operations other than playback (such as rewind or fast-forward) become
unavailable.
–
SMF music files comes in two types; formats 0 and 1.
• In the case of format 1 data, it may take a certain amount of time for playback to begin. The format type is
indicated on the booklet for the music files you’re using.

About the Ivory Feel Keyboard
Features of an Ivory Feel Keyboard
Traditional piano keys are made from the best materials-ivory (for white keys) and ebony (for black keys). The Ivory Feel keyboard uses
the latest in technology to reproduce the touch and feel of these materials.
An Ivory Feel keyboard offers the following features.
• We’re sure you’ll develop a fondness for the distinctive texture of these keys, which feels better the more you play them.
• Surfaces incorporate stripes of moisture-absorbing material for improved touch and playability.
• The keys feature subtle gloss and understated coloring, enhancing the look and elegance.
• The white keys are finished with a slight yellowish tinge for the look of real ivory.
Handling
• Do not write on the keyboard with any pen or other implement, and do not stamp or place any marking on the instrument. Ink will
seep into the surface lines and become unremovable.
• Do not affix stickers on the keyboard. You may be unable to remove stickers that use strong adhesives, and the adhesive may cause
discoloration.
Care and Maintenance
Please note the following points. Failure to do so may result in scratches on the surface finish, damaged gloss, or other discoloration or
deformation.
• To remove dirt, use a soft cloth.
Using a moistened and tightly wrung-out cloth, gently wipe off any dirt.
Do not rub the surface vigorously.
• To remove stubborn dirt, use a commercially available keyboard cleaner that does not contain abrasives.
Start by wiping lightly.
If the dirt does not come off, wipe using gradually increasing amounts of pressure while taking care not to scratch the keys.
• Do not use benzene, paint thinner, or alcohol on the instrument.
