Action

The Roland LX9 showcases the acclaimed ‘Hybrid Grand’ action, widely recognized as Roland’s premier keyboard mechanism. This exceptional action is not only featured in the LX-9 but also finds its place in the prestigious GP9 and GP9M digital grand models. This action is a variant of the well loved PHA-50 design with extended key lengths, offering an even more profound resemblance to the feel of playing a grand piano. Well-known among professional pianists and keyboard players, the Hybrid Grand action, with its sensitive touch and textured keys, provides a realistic grading across the instrument’s range while ensuring a rewarding playing experience.

A compelling advancement in the LX-9’s action is the incorporation of Roland’s groundbreaking Dynamic Sensor Acceleration, representing a significant departure from conventional sensor designs. This innovative feature consistently captures the subtleties and dynamic nuances of a performance with heightened precision. More explicitly, even fine details like fast trills at a pianissimo dynamic marking will be faithfully rendered. Exclusive to the Roland LX-9 is the introduction of Haptic Vibration, further enhancing the organic feel and response of an acoustic piano. The Haptic Vibration simulates the subtle sympathetic vibration felt of the keys of an acoustic piano. These new features not only underline Roland’s commitment to excellence but also showcase their dedication to pushing the boundaries of performance capabilities of digital pianos.

Sound Engine

The Roland LX-9 relies on the highly sophisticated ‘Piano Reality Modeling Concert’ engine, distinguishing itself by eschewing samples entirely in favor of meticulously detailed modeling. This innovative approach grants musicians unprecedented control and customization over their instrument’s sound, allowing for heightened levels of expression and nuance akin to an acoustic piano. Recognizing the limitations of sound sampling in capturing certain details of an acoustic piano, Roland’s modeling-based method has garnered widespread acclaim for its fidelity and authenticity. Furthermore, this makes the Roland LX-9 one of the most versatile instruments on the market.

Enhancing the sonic experience, the LX-9 features an impressive 4-way/8-speaker system, propelled by a robust amplifier, ensuring that every corner of a home is filled with a rich and resonant sound. The speaker placement has been entirely reimagined for this new model – including center channel speakers, resulting in improved sonic clarity. Leveraging Roland’s ‘Piano Reality Projection Concert’ speaker technology, the LX-9 goes beyond mere replication, faithfully recreating acoustic details such as string resonance, hammer noise, and cabinet resonance. The latest modeling technology and DSP contribute to significant improvements in L/R imaging and stereo key following, elevating the LX-9’s performance to new heights of sonic realism.

Notably, with limitless polyphony, the Roland LX-9 empowers musicians with unparalleled expression, offering over 300 top-tier instrument sounds for a versatile sonic palette across diverse creative pursuits.

Connectivity

When it comes to connectivity, the Roland LX-9 includes a comprehensive array of options. Boasting both MIDI and Audio Bluetooth capabilities, this digital piano effortlessly facilitates wireless connections to your phone or tablet, whether you’re engaging with Roland’s Piano App or streaming music through the piano’s exceptional speaker system for an inspiring listening experience.

The Roland LX-9 goes further with its connectivity options, featuring two headphone ports equipped with Roland’s cutting-edge Piano Reality Headphone Technology. Additionally, it includes a DC in Jack, stereo miniature phone type Input Jacks, (L/Mono R) ¼ inch phone type Output Jacks, a USB Type A Port, and a USB Type B port, ensuring that the LX-9 stands as a versatile and adaptable hub for various audio connections and applications.
