A library to interface with Roland FP pianos over midi

Project description

Roland Piano

Library for interfacing with Roland FP pianos over midi. Tested on both Mac and Linux.



python3 -m pip install roland-piano

How this started

I found the button only interface on my Roland FP-10 somewhat limiting. The app would give more insight, but was a bit too buggy IMO. Hence I decided to reverse engineer the Roland specific midi messages and create a Python API so that people can build their own interface. Feel free to contribute!


Please look at the unit tests on how to use the library. The main difference is that the imports are handled as if you installed the library with Pip:

from roland_piano import RolandPiano, discover, RolandAddressMap, Instruments


  • Doesn't trigger events (e.g. volume changed) over midi when changing many of the piano settings. Connecting with the app enables this, so I (or you😃) need to do some digging on how this is achieved. Contact me for more information on what I have tried so far.
  • API is quite limited at the moment, but there is some low hanging fruit for more functionality.
