So far the answer seems to be that Roland is targeting what it considers to be a generic sounding digital Grand Piano and not an otherwise familiar make or model * of GP; not Coke, not Pepsi, not Royal Crown but effectively Roland's idea of generic Cola.

* in the conventional / traditional sense and meaning of model in the context of DP - being a thing that is patterned after some other specific thing - for instance a DP that produces sound patterned upon a specific model of Steinway or upon a specific model of Kawai and not to be confused with the modern meaning "modeled / modelled - fully modeled no sampling " model.

It may have been a somewhat natural conclusion as to the how/why Roland arrived at this step - fully modeled, no sampling - given the lack of history producing its own make of AGPs. If Yamaha and Kawai were to embark on producing their own models of fully-modeled-no-sampling, generic Digital GPs, would they be able to temporarily forget their existing lineup of Acoustic GPs while designing fully-modeled digital GPs that are not patterned upon any actual models of AP?

How many of you, when listening to a recording, can actually say for sure: this is a Steinway or Yamaha, etc? One can guess but I doubt without prior knowledge (and taking probability out of the equation such as only a handful studios having a Fazioli for instance, hence low chance of listening to a Fazioli) the chances are high.

Yes, this can happen. However, I believe there are various factors that influence a pianist's instrument selection when entering competitions.

Kind regards,

ps. Good to see you Jay! Where were you a few weeks ago, when I was trying to confirm whether or not the "plug a UM-ONE mk2 into a modern Roland's USB to Device (i.e. USB memory) port in order to connect to standard 5-pin MIDI devices" worked with the FP-30? wink


Probably taking pictures of the Milky Way, or Grizzly Bears...And yes, that should work....:P

I'm absolutely sure I would fail every time. There's just so much individual variation and voicing that can change the tone, that I've never developed an ear for what it means to have "that Steinway sound" or "that Bosendorfer sound." I just like or dislike the individual pianos I play, and I'm just happy that I like more than I dislike smile

Plug and play? Or plug and pray?
