Roland V-Combo VR-09 Keyboard
The Roland V-Combo VR-09 is a super option for the gigging keyboard player. It features a super intuitive design, 3 dedicated sound engines and a host of real time parameters for total expression when on stage.
The Roland V-Combo VR-09 is a pro-level keyboard, designed with the performing artist in mind. Featuring 3 dedicated sound engines - Organ, Piano and Synth, alongside an array of powerful real time controls plus a host of other handy appointments, it's a truly inspiring instrument.
The sounds created by the Roland VR09 are organised into 3 dedicated blocks that'll provide you with instant access to the tones you need, and thanks to the smart interface, you'll easily be able to set up splits and layers on the fly. You can also save all your keyboard settings in user memory locations for instant recall on stage.
The Organ sound engine utilizes Roland's SuperNATURAL technology to deliver classic tonewheel organ sounds, whilst the 9 harmonic bars and selection of real-time controls (including drive and rotary speaker) give you access to some all important hands-on control and tonal tweaks.
What gigging keyboardist doesn't need a selection of great piano and electric pianos sounds? Well, the VR09 won't be leaving you wanting! The stunning 88-note sample acoustic piano delivers pro-level tone, whilst the selection of electric pianos will cover all the required ground. With effects like phaser, tremolo and compression you are free to tweak your overall sound.
Finally the Synth engine. The VR09 is loaded with an array of ready-to-play synth sounds, from vintage analog classics to modern-era digital tones and beyond. Front panel controls allow you to tweak you sound in real-time.
Added functionality can be had with the free VR-09 Editor app for iPad. This'll give you powerful, intuitive control of the organ and synth sound engines via your tablet’s full-colour touchscreen interface.
Other on-board features include a built-in looper, a drum section stocked with a library of rhythms for practice and jamming, and more.
