Roland HP-503

Entry-Class Piano with No Compromising of Standard Piano Features

The HP-503 digital piano brings the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine, which is the ultimate in piano expressivity, and an Ivory Feel-S keyboard with Escapement, which reproduces the natural playing feel found in grand pianos. The Progressive Damper Action Pedal offers the sensitive and expressive pedalling response required by serious pianists. The HP-503 achieves low power consumption while delivering a dynamic piano sound that is above its class.

Realistic classical fortepiano and harpsichord sounds onboard
Large onboard song library covers piano masterpieces as well as popular etudes such as Czerny 100 and Hannon
Metronome and recorder onboard; recorder lets you capture your performances as audio files
Compact yet noble cabinet with the design elegance of an acoustic piano
Available in two colours: traditional Rosewood finish or cool Satin Black finish

SuperNATURAL Piano Engine
The HP-503 incorporates Roland's SuperNATURAL Piano technology for seamless velocity response, natural note decay, and authentic key-range behaviour to reproduce perfect piano sound and expression. Tone colour changes seamless in response to touch, accurately translating the player's emotions. Tone decay is natural and organic, with the decaying sound not only decreasing in volume, but also gradually changing in colour to a softer tone. Each note has its own character, which creates variations in tonal colour and resonance of each note.
Authentic Fortepiano Tones Onboard

In addition to the selection of onboard grand-piano sounds, the HP-503 features a newly added Early Piano category containing four fortepiano variations and two harpsichord variations. Masterpieces composed by maestros such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin can be played with the original sounds from the period. The appreciation and understanding for the piece is heightened when using the instrument that was actually used by the composers. You can also play these early piano sounds with built-in historic temperaments which are ideal to play with other classical instruments.
Ivory Feel-S Keyboard with Escapement

The HP-503 features new Ivory Feel-S Keyboard with Escapement. With the same progressive hammer action and escapement as the top-line PHA III, it offers unmatched expression and performance authenticity, capable of transforming the most subtle finger nuances into sound. It also provides incredibly fast key-repetition action. The surface of each white key replicates the unique appearance and comfortable feel of real ivory keys. The keys are constructed of a one-piece proprietary material that provides excellent moisture absorbency.
Progressive Damper Action Pedal

The HP-503 is equipped with Progressive Damper Action PedalsΠthat have light resistance at the beginning of the stroke and more resistance the instant they begin to take effect, just like real acoustic pianos. This makes it easy for the performer to know when the pedals begin take effect, and also allows half-pedal techniques for subtle control of after tones and resonance. This pedal can accurately convey the techniques of serious pianists.
Built-In Audio/MIDI Recorder with Flexible Control

The built-in recorder lets you capture your performances as audio and/or MIDI data ¢ a convenient feature for pianists as well as students who want to evaluate their playing. Connect an external digital music player to the input jacks, play a song file, and the HP-503 can transpose it in real time. You can even minimise the melody of an audio song using Centre Cancel function. Play along and capture your performance as audio data. Recorded audio data can be saved onto USB Memory, and copied to an external computer for making audio CDs or for uploading to the Internet.

*USB memory is required for audio recording.
Ease of Use

The simple and intuitive control panel affords quick and easy access to the HP-503's numerous features and applications. LCD panel provides the ideal visual interface with the instrument.

Environment-Conscious Design
The HP-503 achieves low power consumption while still delivering high-impact performance. They also feature an Auto Off function, which, when activated, automatically switches the power off after a specified period of inactivity; inactivity time is selectable from 10 minutes, 30 minutes (default), 240 minutes, and off.
