The Piano Partner 2 app for iOS and Android mobile devices provides an intimate and interactive way to help you learn and enjoy music with your Roland digital piano. Songs and DigiScore Lite showcase the piano’s built-in music collection on your device screen, while the Rhythm and Flash Card sections let you hone your skills with smart accompaniment and engaging music exercises. Piano Partner 2 allows your mobile device to function as a remote control for your Roland piano and offers an intuitive graphical interface for easier use.
Recorder and Diary functions help you progress faster, allow you to evaluate performances and keep track of your daily practice activities. The log records statistics about the playing time, which keys were stolen and more, and it is also possible to share them directly with your family, friends and teachers directly from the app. To use Piano Partner 2, connect your device and a compatible Roland piano via Bluetooth or wired with a USB cable. Piano Partner 2 is available for free from the App Store or Google Play.
Many of Roland’s latest pianos feature more than 300 built-in songs, including popular classics. The “Songs” tool in Piano Partner 2 allows you to access the piano’s library by category on your device screen. You can have full control of a selected song from the app, including start / stop, mute-mute, and metronome on / off, offering great convenience for daily practice and listening. With an Apple Watch, you can access Play All and Shuffle functions remotely, making it easy to play piano music continuously during your fun times or while relaxing.
The DigiScore Lite section displays digital sheet music for built-in songs, and the pages rotate automatically as the songs play. By muting the left or right side, you can practice each hand individually, freely adjust the tempo as you like, and repeat parts of songs to work in specific areas.
Piano Partner 2’s Rhythm function provides a fun way to enhance your sense of timing and groove as you play along with a variety of musical styles such as pop, jazz, blues, and more. It automatically tracks your chords with the whole band, giving you an exciting experience of playing with an ensemble. It’s also perfect when you just want to play the drum part, freely improvise, work on song ideas, or focus more on your timing.
Flash Card is an interactive game to improve ear training and note reading skills. In each session, the player is forced to play a note shown in the app or from the piano, with an award given after five difficulties. There are three levels of difficulty to suit players of all levels.
The handy “Remote Controller” section allows you to access many different Roland piano functions directly from your mobile device. The clear and simple display of the app makes it easy to select tones, set the keyboard mode, operate comprehensive metronome functions, and more.
The Recorder section of Piano Partner 2 is a valuable learning tool that allows you to capture your playing and check your daily progress. When you really catch a performance, you can easily listen back and appreciate a job well done. The app’s recording feature is particularly useful for pianos such as the KF-10 and RP102 that don’t have built-in recording functions.
It is important to review your daily practice activities to ensure you are working in the most practical way, and the app’s “Diary” tool is ideal to achieve this. All of your daily performances are automatically captured and saved to an ongoing playlist. They are ready to listen and review whenever you want, and you can also enter comments.
In addition; Diary’s activity list continuously collects data from all the songs you play, providing statistics about which keys are used and the duration and duration of your playing sessions. You can easily share your comments and summaries including statistics with your family, friends and piano teachers directly from the application via social media such as Twitter. Multiple users can track progress on a single device, thanks to the ability to create individual profiles.
