Room-filling sound from specially-designed speakers
One of the delights of owning a traditional acoustic grand piano is its commanding sound and projection. The GP609 is a revelation in that Roland has been able to achieve the same stunning sonic authority in a digital piano, courtesy of its onboard sound system with custom-designed multi-channel audio technology that provides an immersive, dimensional soundstage that convincingly seems to emanate from an acoustic instrument’s soundboard. Whether you’re playing at home or in commercial venues such as restaurants or hotel lounges, the GP609 delivers powerful, expressive, and controllable sound that blooms in any space.
Immersive spatial sound that you control
Strike the GP609’s keys and be delighted by rich, authentic acoustic grand piano sound, delivered by its onboard 6.1 channel multi-speaker system. Comprised of six speakers and a woofer, Roland’s Acoustic Projection system is designed to deliver optimal sound projection with the power and spacial bloom of a traditional grand piano, from rich, deep bass to shimmering highs. But where acoustic pianists often struggle to control volume, the GP609’s dedicated volume control gives it the flexibility for any playing situation.
A premium sound system for playing and enjoying your music
Whether you’re in the mood to make music — or just want to kick back and enjoy listening, the GP609’s high-quality onboard speaker system is ready to fill the room with amazing sound. When you’re playing, its 6.1 multi-channel speaker system delivers your notes with richness and clarity. When you’re relaxing with friends and family, its Bluetooth audio functionality turns the piano into a great-sounding hi-fi, wirelessly pairing with your smartphone or tablet and playing your favorite tunes and playlists through the speakers. There’s even a dedicated Apple Watch app that lets you control the piano’s internal song library from the comfort of your easy chair.
The look and feel of a traditional grand — without the hassle
A traditional grand piano undoubtedly makes a statement in a living room; but its considerable cost, massive weight, and required maintenance can make ownership a labor of love. With its elegant polished ebony finish, the Roland GP609 gives you the classic look of an acoustic grand along with ultra-realistic sound and playing feel. Plus, it’s always in tune!
Celebrate the joy of music with onboard educational features
At Sweetwater, music truly is the universal language, and it brings joy into our lives every day. It’s been proven that learning the piano is beneficial to humans — but it requires time, work, and dedication. The Roland GP609 gives pianists a fun, innovative alternative to conventional book-oriented piano courses with its built-in educational features. Jam along with the onboard songs — and you’ll be laying the groundwork for joining a band or orchestra. Twin Piano splits the keyboard into two identical key ranges, letting student and teacher play side-by-side. The GP609’s onboard metronome helps you develop accurate timing, while the built-in song recorder lets you capture what you’ve been working on to instantly appraise your progress. There’s also audio and MIDI playback from a USB memory stick, plus integrated Bluetooth MIDI functionality that lets you wirelessly connect to online apps such as Roland’s Piano Partner 2, and also access song libraries, digital sheet music, and more. The Roland GP609 makes practice a joy, not a task.
