Roland GP-9M Digital Grand Piano
The Ultimate Grand Piano for Entertainment and Stage Performance
The GP-9M brings you Roland’s premier piano experience, offering refined musical expression in a sophisticated and luxurious instrument that makes a majestic statement in any space. This impressive piano includes the same flagship sound and features as its sister model, the GP-9, while adding moving keys, professional audio outputs, and a microphone input for singing along through the onboard speaker system. This makes the GP-9M ideal for performance venues, commercial establishments, and homeowners looking for the ultimate piano entertainment showcase.
The GP-9M embodies signature piano elegance with its flowing curves, solid lines, and striking high-gloss ebony and polished white finishes. Like an acoustic grand, the lid can be opened to different positions to adjust the sound character or closed to create a flat surface when not in use. Smart touch controls in the panel provide intuitive access to essential functions as needed. And when you’re ready to play, you can turn off their backlighting to eliminate distractions and maintain the acoustic aesthetic.
The GP-9M features a moving key function for entertaining at home gatherings and commercial venues like restaurants and hotels. Call up songs from the piano’s extensive onboard library or MIDI files via USB flash media, and then watch and listen as the keys magically play themselves. Roland Cloud also offers a growing library of songs that can be accessed via the Roland Piano App.
Versatile Audio Connectivity
Professional XLR outputs enable you to connect the piano directly to a house audio system in a performance venue or commercial establishment for broader sound coverage and independent control from the onboard speakers. All GP-9M sounds go to the outputs by default, but you can assign the dry piano sound, ambience only, or song playback to suit your needs. There’s a dedicated microphone input as well, allowing a performer to sing through the GP-9M’s sound system without the need for an external preamp or audio mixer.
The GP-9M is built around advanced Roland’s Piano Reality approach, a sophisticated ecosystem of connected technologies comprising the sound engine, keyboard, pedals, audio components, and speakers. Each section is designed to work together flawlessly and transparently, allowing players to experience the purity of this wonderful instrument with unprecedented expression and realism.
Endlessly Inspiring Tone
Piano Reality Concert modeling leverages our latest technologies to recreate every sound-making element of an acoustic piano, putting the living response and complex tonal colors of a concert-class grand under your fingers. Modeled ambience is integrated into the sound engine, allowing you to play in realistic spaces such as an intimate studio, spacious concert hall, or large cathedral. And with unlimited polyphony, notes and resonances ring in full detail to translate every musical emotion.
Authentic Grand Playability
The Piano Reality Concert keyboard provides unbounded expression with progressive hammer action, escapement, hybrid wood/molded key construction with Ivory Feel, and advanced acceleration sensing technology for accurate detection of the subtlest playing nuances. Fine details further elevate the feel, including long key pivot length and haptic vibration that emulates the subtle vibrations from an acoustic piano’s body. High-performance sustain, soft, and sostenuto pedals round out the authentic experience, offering weighted feel, damper modeling, and support for traditional pedal techniques.
A Full-Immersion Sound Experience
The GP-9M features the Piano Reality Concert projection sound system, where multi-channel amplification, premium audio circuitry, and advanced sonic processing come together for the ultimate full-surround piano experience. The cabinet construction, speaker placement, and lid angle have all been carefully tuned to deliver the same bold and immersive sound presentation as a concert grand in a performance hall. And notes naturally move across the immediate sound field as you play, mirroring the physical string positions on an acoustic grand’s soundboard.
Personalize the Sound and Feel
The GP-9M offers several world-class grand piano sounds that are ready to enjoy. But if you’re an experienced player, you can dive into the onboard Piano Designer tools to further refine the tone and response for your personal touch. Adjust the string tuning and temperament, fine-tune keyboard sensitivity and duplex scaling, shape cabinet resonances, and much more. Customized settings can be recalled with a touch, a great feature for different pianists who play the GP-9M in a commercial environment or performance venue.
Minimal maintenance, reduced weight.
Acoustic grand pianos are extremely heavy, difficult to move, and require professional tuning and other regular maintenance to keep them sounding their best. Thanks to their digital sound engines, GP pianos weigh drastically less than their acoustic counterparts. And they’re always perfectly in tune, producing outstanding sound every time you power on.
More Digital Advantages
Volume control is within easy reach, and you can connect headphones to play anytime without disturbing others. The onboard metronome and simple rhythms help develop your sense of timing during daily practice sessions. And with Twin Piano mode, you can split the keyboard into two independent sections and play alongside a family member, friend, or teacher.
