A Portable Piano with Premium Performance and Go-Anywhere Creativity as Standard

If you play the piano, you understand that inspiration can come from anywhere - where you play, who you play with, and of course, the audience you perform for. If you want to take your music to the people, the Roland FP-90 Digital Piano will help you get there. It packs Roland's flagship piano sound engine and keyboard into a sleek, modern cabinet that also houses a multi-channel speaker system with enough power for performing in intimate venues. A carefully selected range of additional sounds that include electric pianos, strings, organs, and synths are on hand as well, allowing you to use the FP-90 in a wide variety of musical scenarios. And with Bluetooth audio/MIDI support, you're able to connect wirelessly with Roland's Piano Partner 2 and other music apps on a smartphone or tablet. Available in black or white finishes, the flexible FP-90 is ready to go wherever you want to play.

Excellent, realistic action. Availability of optional furniture stand is great for a slab piano like this. Onboard speakers are mediocre. Some notes resonate unpleasantly in the chassis of the keyboard. User interface is cumbersome. Piano Designer mobile app from Roland extends the range of sounds somewhat but feels a bit cheap in its own way. Apparently you can record performances but clicking through the menus looking at the tiny screen would be discouraging. Better to record a MIDI performance using the USB MIDI output to a laptop or similar. Metronome doesn't seem to have its own volume control so I continue to use a handheld Korg digital metronome. Roland's marketing copy hypes the 'modelling engine' as compared to sample based devices but frankly it sounds very artificial (synthesized) and I would prefer a sample based engine. Sound is much improved using the keyboard as a controller for Kontakt libraries and using external monitors. But then you must come to terms with paying a very high premium for superior action and not much else. All in all, the FP-90 looks relatively sleek for a slab piano and the action (which it shares with Rolands more expensive digital home pianos) may be worth the price of admission. Don't expect stellar sound, especially from the onboard speakers. Consider pairing with a laptop and piano sampler VST.

I've had this for about 8 months now. I carry it around everywhere. It's heavy but worth the effort. Great sound, great feel, great control. My only complaint would be that when streaming music via Bluetooth, the sound isn't as clear as if like (it is sort of distorted).
