Thanks for your frequent uploads bigbang!

Really curious to hear your impressions of CFX versus the Roland (and your old ES8) sounds, and what made you change (assuming it's your regular tone now).

I record the sound in midi (via internal memory) with the Roland's sound in the headphones.

Then I edit the midi file with cubase elements, using the Garritan CFX Lite.
The sound is incredible !!!
But I only use it for Youtube upload.
I want to play just pushing one button on the FP90. No PC, No cubase, No VST... I prefere spend time working the piano.
When my cover is ready, I record midi.

I don't play the VST live.
I find the keyborad feeling difficult to setup. No latence but the action is not good for me.
I prefere the Roland velocity. Very easy to play.

I'd like to write it in french...

CFX is close to the ES8 sounds. It seems more organic.

I know what you mean; I suspect others do too. My Roland sounds a tad lacking in the upper register, so I always play Pianoteq which has that nice ring to it. And I record the Pianoteq to wav. . . .job done.
But I wonder, since I got arguably better results playing on my previous Yamaha, and doing what you did; recording the Yam to SMS (MIDI) and transferring that to the Pianoteq Computer for onwards wav. recording, through any of the voices available to me then.

Can the FP-90 be edited to the degree the V-Piano could? I remember old threads on here of the V-Piano where users were coming up with various sound parameters to try and mimic different concert grand characteristics.

No, it cannot. You can basically just adjust 'effects'. Soundboard option changes timbre a little bit, but still it's just the same base which you probably won't like and will try to convine yourself, that you do.

OK I don't want to be harsh on Roland, I'm a big fan of their pianos but the modelled sound is, well, just as it is. If you don't like it, don't cheat yourself - no adjustment will help to change it a lot.

Ordered my FP-90 today, should ship tomorrow I was told my the salesman.

Lots of useful info on this thread helped me make the decision, thanks fellows.

That whole Rainlink segue was interesting too.

Got a nice white one!

I agree. I ended up ordering a Kawai MP7SE. I was considering the FP90, but I couldn’t warm up to the sounds. I appreciate what Roland is doing, but not quite there yet in tone for my ears.

Congrats on your new Kawai too!

I had limited options to try out at my local music shop, couldn't try out a lot of different same tier priced pianos, but could try out an RD-2000. The triple sensor expressiveness was what I was looking for.

The default sounds of the FP-90 need some tweaking for my taste as far as I can tell from the demos I've heard, I prefer a less digital or electric sound if that's the right way to describe it, I aim for classical style sounds. But after a lot of hunting through a lot of demos I heard some folks tweaking it to where I was content enough with it, and the built in sounds in the end are of minor importance to me compared to the keyboard feel, as I will mostly be using it connected up to a DAW with a lot of recorded piano and other sample libraries I am very happy with. smile

Yeah in my opinion, the FP90 is hands one of the best values in the industry. It has the same action and sound engine as the flagship GP-609. All for under $2000. If I had never gotten to play the new Kawais, I may have gone for the Roland. I’m also a big fan of the CP4 as well. Congrats again. Seems we both have something fun to look forward to. Always great getting a new piece of kit!

After 14 months of 2.5 hours a day practice, my FP-90 is playing flawlessly and quietly. As a controller, I'm crazy about it.

That's the kind of longevity everyone should be expecting! Great to hear it's holding up to regular/heavy playing.

My new Roland FP-90 arrived in the mail today. I was a bit concerned seeing the big gash in the front of the box. Pulling away the cardboard I could see the keyboard inside. . . It looked fine.

After some unboxing, which I regretted not having a free place to take some pictures of, I was quite relieved to find it looked pristine. A minor fuss later as I cleared away styrofoam crumbs.. one despite my best efforts got inside the keys, I cleaned it off, and sorted through the accessories. One damper pedal, one two part power supply.. and a box with the music stand and documents.

I tried the keys out, they felt great.. the graded-ness I hardly noticed, which I appreciated coming from a non-graded keyboard.

I plugged it in, turned it on, it's beautiful. All white, with blue white lit buttons, aesthetically I am very happy with it. Played a few chords.. I was concerned because the majority of the demos weren't classical. I think the sounds can handle classical, my concerns about that eased.

It's looking to be great. I will have to assemble the stand and etc. as there's no place for it now. My previous Keystation was lightweight enough to sit on a fold out shelf on my homemade cabinet-desk. The Roland would be too heavy and overturn it even with my short legs to stabilize it. I had planned on adding some two by fours, cut down to size to make a heavy duty slide out shelf, but life intervened and I ran out of time.

The stand turns out to be clear glass, which truly goes beautifully with the aesthetics. I had looked at the RD-2000, and it seemed to follow an opposite scheme, which was one of the reasons I went with the FP-90 despite the lack of a modwheel. I can use my old keyboard's modwheel on a double tier, or some other auxiliary controls, I hope that will work out fine.

The first few chords I played on it.. impressed me, and the expressiveness was just what I was looking for. Quite different from an few years old Keystation 88.
I could play the keys softly or loudly, and control it all as I wished, rather than feeling it was out of control once the key was pressed.

So I am a happy fellow here tonight. God is good, everything is beautiful, it's a happy evening. smile

A clear glass stand? Wow, that sounds stunning - please take some pictures of it once the instrument is fully set-up.

Kind regards,

That's pretty impressive! Haha yes the music stand, and it still looks pretty impressive too! smile

Just finished up putting up some curtains in the woodshop to keep the sawdust from blowing out the doorway. I'll cobble together a sliding piano tray/stand out of some two by fours later on, and attach it to my desk (an upside down kitchen cabinet, painted black.

The piano will mostly live there, rather than on the white stand Roland provides with it as a set, as I will be using it with my DAW, with some other MIDI devices.
