There isn't anything available from the manufacturers that's built in like SuperNATURAL tech. It's really really great stuff. I commend Roland for upping the ante. If I could figure out a way to tweak the Roland piano sound so that it could cut through better, my dream board (outside of my Nord Piano
) would be a ~40lb, PHA III Ivory Feel with the LCD screen of the NX, combined with a SuperNATURAL piano library for which to upload like on the Nord. That'd be a spectacular board.
You know I've found through my tiresome, expensive
pursuit of finding the ideal stage piano that sounds, plays, feels good, while at the same time not breaking my back to move, that in the end, there won't be a best in all categories. Only a best 'compromise'. For me, and I stress for me
, it was the Nord Piano. No it doesn't have the best piano action, no it doesn't have the cleanest most technical sound, no it's not the most feature-laden, and no it's not end-all-be-all, but is at worst case good in all the areas, and arguably excels beyond what else is out to me. It's light, plays well, sounds incredible, is uber-flexible, comes standard with the triple-pedal unit, which for me is super nice, is simply laid out, and offers the best set of compromises overall for what I need.
If I had the money, I'd have kept my RD-700GXF along with the Nord Piano because I do miss the RD SN and I miss the action, but I don't miss how terrible the Roland w/ SN sounds live, nor do I miss the length/weight. It still puzzles me that the DP manufacturers continue pushing out pianos they claim for stage use that weigh near 60lbs, and some even more!
