DP-990F/DP-990RF: Digital Piano
Enhanced with SuperNATURAL Piano Technology
With Roland’s groundbreaking SuperNATURAL Piano technology onboard, the DP990F brings a new dimension of acoustic-piano realism to the digital domain. A great-feeling PHA II keyboard is built into a stylish, space-saving cabinet with a unique lid that can be used as a music rest when open and as flat surface when closed. It’s a new breed of musical sophistication and functional style. The DP990F is available in Medium Cherry and Satin Black finishes. For those who desire an extra splash of class, the piano can also be purchased with a high-gloss Polished Ebony exterior and enhanced PHA II Ivory Feel Keyboard (model DP990RF*).
*With the exception of its PHA II Ivory Feel Keyboard and Polished Ebony finish, the DP990RF has the same specifications as the DP990F.

The DP990F is enhanced with Roland’s breakthrough SuperNATURAL Piano technology. Three key elements are dramatically improved: velocity response, note decay, and key-range behavior. Where previous sample-based technology created coarse “stair-step” gaps in velocity and key range, and unnatural looping in note decay, SuperNATURAL bridges the gaps with perfectly smooth and natural three-dimensional sound and response.
The DP990F impresses with its sleek, modern-furniture-like design, featuring a solid, soft-close safety lid that can be used as a music rest when opened and as a flat surface when closed. With two beautiful finishes to choose from — Medium Cherry and Satin Black — this instrument enhances any environment it’s placed in.
Authentic Grand-Piano Feel
The DP990F is equipped with Roland’s acclaimed PHA II keyboard with Escapement. The DP990RF model features a PHA II keyboard with Escapement plus Ivory-Feel keys. The keyboard yields a heavier touch in the lower range and lighter touch in the upper, providing lighter resistance for pianissimo passages and stronger resistance for fortissimo. The escapement architecture of the DP keys reproduces the characteristic “click feel” of a grand piano for the ultimate in realistic performance and expression. The DP990RF’s Ivory-Feel key material provides a moisture-absorbent, secure touch.
USB compatibility opens a world of exciting add-ons and extra functionality to the DP990F. Play along with audio files or Standard MIDI files directly from a USB key, or layer pre-recorded music from a commercially available audio CD with your performance by connecting a USB CD drive (Roland CD-01A, optional). Your audience won’t believe how much music is coming from a single instrument.
New Twin-Piano Mode
The “Twin Piano” function allows you to split the keyboard left and right into two regions, each with its own middle “C” and damper pedal. Two players wearing headphones can then play completely independently without hearing one another (Individual Twin-Piano), a powerful application for “partner” lessons or piano labs.
