By popular demand, a place to discuss all things related to the Roland FP-90X.

I got my FP90X about 3 weeks ago, I like it a lot.

I sold my FP90 and also cancelled my N1X order.

I am curious about other people settings.

I would like to know how to post a picture like you did above.

@ampersand: do you mind explaining why the FP90x is better than the FP90, to justify an upgrade?

I, too, am curious why you prefer the FP90x to the FP 90. And, if you don't mind, could you explain how you sold your old unit -- to a store, via Craigslist, etc.?

Congrats Ampersand and Purdy! Purdy I think you should get that "flap" out from below the pedal - helps hold the pedal firmly in place.

We really would love to hear some sound samples.

AFAIK, the only difference between the models is the PureAcoustic Piano Modeling, and the ambience effects brought by the PureAcoustic model.

- Hey, let's make power and pedal cables long enough that they are able to run down along the stand's sides!
- Ha. Don't think so!

I get mine this week. For just playing at home are the built-in speakers good enough?

I went through all the settings and left it at default, I pushed the high end equalizer down a tad. And reduced the default velocity curve down by 10.

.

Funny you should mention that I noticed it the other day thought maybe I should take it off, but it does add some weight and I was playing on the patio the other day on concrete and I suppose it helped.

Kind of an odd thing though. Could have been made to fit better.

I apologize; I meant, "flip" it so your heel is on that flap, and your toes on the pedal, like this...

Well that is obvious, now. wink. I suppose it is in a manual somewhere.

Thanks for sharing.

I think so although I do like to hook up a subwoofer to get some vibrations out of the bass.

I tried out through my magneplanar speakers which aren’t cheap but my amp has some delay in it and I was dealing with room acoustics.

Using an external speaker almost always adds some delay to the sound.

My last keyboard had speakers where the sound came out more in the back. And oddly I never noticed that for quite some time, until I moved it away from the wall and put it in the middle of a room and heard my son play.

So a little adjustment for me sound wise.

I did notice the other day with the outside jams session with drums, a couple of guitars, and a bass that I could hear my playing better. Really appreciated that. It’s like having a monitor.

Anyway, built in speakers will be just fine for playing at home. I’m no sure it is as loud as it should be from the claimed wattage.

But you do have to be careful if you are playing piano and switch to organ as it can blast your eardrums out so maybe it is loud enough.

I never claimed it was better for the record.

I’m afraid I won’t be much help here, I’m not a very technical person.

Truthfully, I really liked the FP90 and I had the funds to buy the FP90X so I bought it, hoping it would be an upgrade.

Personally, I don’t think there is a big difference between both of them, still I’m really happy.

It’s the action I really like.

In fact I like the action so much, I decided to cancel my N1X order.

I sold it on Facebook.

Some may disagree with me but both the FP90 and FP90X internal speakers sounds is not good.

I just bought JBL 305P powered speakers and trying to make that work, but like I said I’m not a technical person.

@ampersand: thanks for explaining... I was simply curious about the upgrade.

Hm, I don't like the idea of delay when using external speakers even if the quality is better. Hopefully I will be ok with the built-in speakers. It will only be in a smallish living room.

Delay may or may not be an issue.

Speakers have plenty of output for a living room.
