Great upgrade/update!

Absolutely beautiful, and stunning sound!

The price is going to be the scary part...

Wow. Specs are only half the story but blimey they've pushed the boat out on this one. Looks like an extremely interesting product. I do wish they'd ditch that bloody joystick thing though....ruins the proportions and aesthetic balance.

And they're so proud of their main piano sound in the first main demo, they cover it up pretty quickly with all the drums and other band instruments that join in after barely 10 seconds of actually hearing it...

Next a few nice sounding chords to listen to, but then quickly soaked in delay echo effects - seriously?! - can't we just hear it naturally? Yes, everyone knows it can do FX too.
Anyway sounds pretty good for a slab stage piano - maybe not all Roland's best engineers went to Dexibell after all.

Hey Mr Kawai, how come you don't have two light-up mod wheels...?

"Gorgeous Acoustic Pianos Powered by
V-Piano Technology

In a word, the RD-2000’s acoustic piano sounds are magnificent. Incorporating Roland’s very latest piano technologies and long-running V-Piano research, the acoustic voice is incredibly natural, responsive, and richly detailed. The dedicated acoustic engine features full-keyboard polyphony, allowing you to realize authentic piano performances without absolutely no compromises."

That sounds interesting.

Well, there you go. I'm surprised. Not that there wouldn't be an update for some sort to the RD-800. But this thing is on the steroids.

I don't get it either. Why would anyone think an 88 note instrument should be longer? I know the color knobs helps, I guess, but who does their design? Weight? The edge where they put the logo is too modern for me, and believe me I love Scifi/modern but I prefer the more traditional look of the other big players.

24-bit/192 kHz USB audio/MIDI interface
So it means, it has built-in audio interface. That's cool.

USB Audio Recorder: WAV format, 44.1 kHz, 16-bit linear – that's not cool. They could develop USB Audio Recorder feature, giving possibility to record also in 48 kHz – so many people making videos today. Videos need audio with 48 kHz sampling rate.

Yea, that adds to the width of the keyboard. If I buy it I'll have to work on my flight case.

The FA08 has two expansion slots:

* The wave expansion slots are rewritable internal waveform memory. You can download data from the Axial sound library site and write it via a USB flash drive into the FA's internal wave memory (slot).

It's listed right now at $2,499 in the U.S.

So a $500 upgrade.

This looks very exciting!

I have a few questions, the way it's worded on the website could be quite misleading. What do we think?

"The versatile RD-2000 includes over 1,100 additional sounds for covering any style of music with just one keyboard. Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology provides highly expressive Virtual Tone Wheel organs, modern and vintage synths, clavinet, orchestral strings, brass, and many other sound types."

Does this mean we might stand a chance of getting some supernatural acoustic orchestral sounds!? ... The old PCM strings and brass is what's put me off RD's recently, and I was considering a Integra 7 for some time, but I literally just want ONE good useable strings and brass with some control, so if this could cover that, it would be amazing.

I REALLY HOPE this baby has 'tone remain' (Smooth sound transitions) as I've heard it called in an RD-800 video. I would be worried since it's not listed as a feature/spec, but it doesn't seem to be for the 800 either, and according to an Australian's video review, he says it DOES have tone remain, which I found very surprising. So surely they can't remove that, if the 800 had it?

And lastly, I hope this 100 'scenes' isn't a replacement for Live Sets which are currently 200, as I've always used that as a kind of set list mode (Such a shame they haven't done a proper set list mode. I'm sure everyone would want that playing live) but if there's only 100, that really limits storing your own sounds, and then doing another version which orders them.

This beauty looks very promising though! Like a bit of many Roland keyboards in one, focusing mainly on piano, which is perfect. I've found the Kronos way too mind blowing for quick live use! smile

I also would like to see some of the Integra-7 SuperNatural acoustic sounds in the RD-2000. I noticed that the RD-2000 doesn't have the S1 and S2 buttons above the stick which were used to trigger some of the effects on the Integra-7 but the FC1 and FC2 pedals could do the same thing.

I would like to see an Integra-88!

Very nice that they have included both modeled and sampled pianos. For those of us (me included) who can't stand modeled sound, it's a very welcome addition. It was something I proposed as a feature for the next Kawai pianos but apparently it was Roland that listened wink

Yeah I am super confused right now about what is "v-piano" technology, and how it is different from the SuperNatural Piano. Are they calling the v-piano piano the SN piano (and is that the same as the the new fully modeled SN pianos on the LX/HP), or is it the RD-800's with sampled attack and modeled decay/resonance on the 128poly track?

Yes and then "Sympathetic Resonance (Only for SuperNATURAL Piano)"... So not quite the V-Piano like in "the V-Piano", exactly like they promised with the RD-800, which had a sampled V-Piano marketed as V-Piano. Now it's only their current latest modeled Piano, which we know is in the FP-90 (and is too synthetic in reality), and they call it V-Piano here and not over there, same old marketing bs at Roland, shamelessly, over and over again

...

For the rest of it they've basically stuffed the RD-2000 with all their old tech, like they always do...

If you need a stage piano.. but don't complaint you didn't know it was all existing in their catalog already, you've been warned!

I believe at some point when people will have enough of being offered to buy recycled trash advertised for novelties, there will be a class action against Roland's marketing constant claim of technology that are in fact pure re-branding of the same over a very long period. That would only be justice.

I am so confused now lol.. So vpiano is the supernatural modelled sound, and the supernatural sound is the older sample/model hybrid, correct?

It so, makes some sense to differentiate since anyone searching Supernatural will find lots of the older sample/model hybrid info.. they should have thought of this sooner though.

Also if it is not the fully user customisable vpiano as the Vpiano that should be made clearer.. Cause now the Vpiano and this vpiano are doing the same confuddling as did Supernatural vs Supernatural =_=
