Looks like they might have dropped the side speakers that were on the FP80

It looks like Roland is rolling out its fully modeled engine to more and more models. From an innovation perspective, that's great to see. I love the "limitless" polyphony of the piano tones.

The modelled accordion and sax instruments for some reason seem more impressive -- probably because we've been seeing the incremental improvements on the DP side in what seems like slow motion.

Jack says the attacks of the FP90 are sampled - I thought Roland had moved to full modelling for SN now. I'm confused. In any case it sounds great.

I'm just going with the marketing nomenclature. I think Jay mentioned that the lx17 and lx7 are fully modeled with no samples, and they are the only ones that say limitless polyphony (which makes sense). But now the fp90 and new gp also have limitless piano polyphony. But they are limitless at stacking samples (but only for piano tones)? That doesn't sound quite right (but what do I know).

Yeah, I got confused there for a minute too. Then I looked up the website again and it is quite clear that they are using the new, fully modeled sound engine, because there is unlimited polyphony. And then if you go to bettermusic in Australia, they have a video and also explain that its the new PHA-50 action and the new, fully modeled supernatural.

Whoever from Roland supported Jack did a crap job. He explains the previous generation sound engine (samples + modeling) for minutes and calls it new. They need to record that one more time...

I assume that someone in Roland marketing now wishes very much they could fully model piano review people, too :-)

FP-90 is a terrific piano spec-wise and I'm sure it's a great playing one too. Kudos to Roland for bringing modeling to mainstream price. It's now Yamaha and Kawai turn.

So are the HP 603 and 605. Those pianos are identical to the lx models in action and sound engine, the price differential is for more/better speakers and amps and prettier cabinets.

And in all of these the limitless polyphony only applies to the SN piano sounds, the extras are 384.

The fp 90 appears to be identical to those pianos just in a portable form.

It's more than obvious that FP-90 is a vey competitive contestant amongst Yamaha and Kawai stage pianos or controller keyboards.

In addition to PHA-50 keys, I'd really rate how light it is (24kg) compared to, say, VPC1 (30kg). Add SuperNatual piano sound, FP-90 is very appealing.

The only downside is the casing. VPC1 or Sutidiologic keys still look sexier.

Better sound spec and new keyboard compared to the FP80 with pricing between the ES8 and CP4. It's showing already as pre-order on quite a few UK sites, it'll be interesting to try one when they land.
