The RD-700GX is a powerful performer!
Roland RD-700GX at a Glance:
An ideal stage piano
The RD-700GX is anchored by Roland's finest 88-key stereo multisampled piano engine including a brand-new super expressive piano sound, with every note captured using a generous amount of wave capacity. In addition to their super-expressive onboard piano sound-sets, other essential instruments are built into these new pianos, including EPs. You can even customize and save your sounds for instant recall.
Play audio through the RD-GX directly from a USB memory key. Flexible file compatibility enables playback of Standard MIDI Files, WAV, AIFF and MP3s. The "Audio Key" feature lets you use the bottom 15 keys for controlling start song, song length, etc. In addition, you can connect directly to a PC via USB and tap into Cakewalk SONAR LE software, included in every RD-GX package.
Expansion, master control
Expand and personalize the internal sound-set by adding up to two optional Roland SRX expansion boards (RG-700GX only), then take your music to the stage. The RD-700GX makes a great master controller, thanks to multi-zone functionality and three MIDI outputs.
Another distinguishing feature of the RD-700GX is its electric-piano sound bank derived from Roland's unique SuperNATURAL technology. Enjoy realism, expression, and control like never before with this special selection of EPs that provide amazingly authentic and organic tonal response.
Customize your piano
For those who like to get inside an instrument and customize its sounds, the RD-GX's Piano Designer feature is your key to unlocking and personalizing the sound-set, down to the smallest details such as Hammer Noise, Damper Resonance, Duplex Scale, and more. In the RD-700GX, sounds can be further customized with the 8 channels of powerful onboard multi-effects.
Great piano feel
Your fingers will love the RD-700GX's top-of-the-line PHA II "Ivory Feel" keyboard with Escapement. This amazing keyboard technology reproduces the real surface feel of ivory acoustic piano keys providing a familiar stability and comfort to the pianist. The keys are designed to absorb moisture, ensuring a secure, slip-proof feel, even in the hottest stage environments where sweaty hands can spell disaster. The RD-300GX offers an excellent PHA alpha II weighted keyboard.

Roland Really Hit The Jack Pot
by Jake Tavill from NJWhen I first got my Roland RD-700gx I bought it from experience playing on the earlier version at some gigs called the Roland RD-700sx and I didn't know if it was going to reach standards, but it did ... read more [+]and it took my breathe away. The feel of being on a piano while playing a keyboard is genuine and the piano feature that lets you adjust how high the top of the virtual piano is is amazing. The wide variety of sounds lets you play virtually almost any instrument, even ones that aren't even instruments. The EQ effect on it lets you adjust the EQ to any way you want it, for a more structured sound or for a simple higher or lower sound. A very interesting effect that i like is that you can play 4 instruments at once by setting 4 buttons to them and adjusting how loud you want each of them with separate faders. I know this keyboard will probably be one that lasts me my whole life and i am very excited about it. Roland really hit the jack pot with this keyboard! close [-]

As close to the real thing as you can get!!
by Sheila from Houston, TXI've had this instrument for about a month now and I am truly impressed. I play mostly classical music so when I would switch from a keyboard to a real piano, I often felt frustrated. I had a roland... read more [+] before, but it was really old and definitely didn't have that "real" feeling... or sound. It served it's purpose well though... had it for 12 years. This is by far the most superior digital instrument I've ever played. Not only can my hands barely tell the difference, but the sound quality is absolutely amazing. Well done Roland!!!! close [-]

by Robert S. from San Francisco, CAI'm a classically trained pianist - I used to have a sweet Steinway - old but sweet. When I got into "keyboards" to play with bands I had a Yamaha CP-70 and a Prophet 5. Later it was all Kurzweil for... read more [+] me because the technology was really moving in a good direction for real piano players (as opposed to "keyboardists"). They were all a sacrifice in comparison to the real thing - and I always yearned to have the Steinway back. Well I still do but not as much - thanks to this wonderful instrument.

The Roland RD-700GX is a significant step up from the other great board they made, it's predecessor the RD-700SX (which I also had). If you're a player and know a good sound you owe it to yourself to check this out. And, if you must compromise from the real thing, for me anyway - this has them all beat! The action (superb) and tones (exquisite) and the add-on sound packs too!!! Wow!! Oh btw, I also had the new Kurzweil PC3X for a little under a month. I sent it back - they need to develop the piano across a wider spectrum - at times it sounds great but only limited. Try playing any Liszt on it and it's game over.
But I love my Roland RD-700GX! I also have the Orchestral and Symphonic Strings packs installed too!
cheers! close [-]
The one to buy!
by DLW from NVAfter looking at all the major brands it won hands down. The keyboard action sold me. Each model has a piano that sounds better then its competition, but the key action is outstanding. I'm a studen... read more [+]t and the transition from digital to real piano would frustrate me. The RD-700GX is like having an expensive grand piano for a fraction of the cost or space. I was looking at the digital upright, but didn’t like the look or the key action of them. I purchased a Kohler KD-140 and what a nightmare that was. It went back. The only thing that almost made me not buy the RD-700GX was that it would sit in my formal front room. After some team work of my wife, father in-law, and me we made a cabinet for. Wish a picture could be attached. The cabinet looks so much better then the FD-7 or any of its competition. close [-]

World class stage beast
by Ciprian from Toronto, ON, CanadaI've had it for 3 months now and everytime i switch it on i'm sad i don't have enough time to play it. This is my first stage piano - when i bought it i chose the RD-700GX after playing other big mons... read more [+]ters: Kawai MP8II, Yamaha CP-300 (waaaay tooo overpriced for what it can do) and Yamaha S90ES (the only real competitor, in my opinion, to the RD-700GX - but i didn't want a synth behind a stage piano, having an Access Virus TI as a synth there is nothing i could want more). Nothing compared to RD-700GX. Its tones, effects and keyboard feel go beyond any competition. It's here, in my room, and it's here to stay for a loooong time. :) close [-]
