Today we are going to talk about the ultimate 88-key stage piano.
What’s amazing about this keyboard is that it features two complete sets of piano sounds which have been taken from the popular RD700SX keyboard.
Great Key Response for the Aspiring Pianist
I took this keyboard out for a spin and when I began to play, I quickly realized how well constructed the key response was. My fingers just loved to race across the keyboard. Roland’s PHA ll alpha ll weighted keyboard technology gets kudos for letting my fingers fall in love with the touch response.
One of the cool features I like gives the ability to play audio directly into the RD 300 GX via a USB memory key. This feature is compatible with standard MIDI files, WAV, AIFF and MP3s. Essentially the bottom 15 keys on the RD300GX control the playback and other features of the audio file.
The piano features 128 voices of polyphony with 128 MB of wave memory.
The effects section include 6 reverb types and a 2-band digital equalizer.
Over 200 Rhythm Patters to Quickly Get the Right Groove
A glance at the rhythm section reveals that there are 200 patterns to get you in the groove. Personally I found that some of the drums patterns leave a little bit to be desired. Some just didn’t quite cut it for me.
While exploring the various ports I noticed that the RD300GX is supplied with 1/4 inch left and mono output jacks, a damper pedal, headphone jacks and DC IN jack.
3 Zone Keyboard Split
The keyboard can be split into 3 separate zones with the level slider controller. In addition the RD 300 GX features equalizer knobs, pitch bend and modulation levers and assignable switches.
The RD300GX also features 1 MB of internal memory.
