Lets face it, not every musician can afford to hire a choir for their gigs or recording sessions. Sometimes just finding a qualified background singer or two can be a chore. Dilemma solved with the VP-550 Vocal and Ensemble Keyboard. Much more than a traditional vocoder or harmonizer, the VP-550 uses Rolands breakthrough vocal-modelling technology to bring the highest-quality, interactive vocal sounds to a dedicated instrument. Connect a mic, select a sound, and play. You wont believe what can come out of this instrument spectacular classical choirs, soulful gospel choirs, pop and jazz voices, male and female ensembles, vintage vocoder, and lush string/vocal hybrids. A great addition for lounge musicians playing at bars and hotels.
Roland's VP-550 introduced the world to a new category of musician - the vocal keyboardist. Today, the VP-550's successor has arrived, broadening the scope of the vocal keyboardist. With the latest technology onboard, the VP-770 allows a single musician to create realistic backing parts that range from futuristic electronic vocal textures to incredible emulations of large-scale gospel choirs and beyond.

The human voice is the most expressive musical instrument of all, so why not use it as a tool to create ultra-realistic and expressive 'virtual vocals' with words generated from your own voice? Whether you need one voice, a full choir, or surreal vocoder-like layers, the VP-770 can deliver the interactive, expressive vocal backing you need. The VP-770 is also equipped with world-class string and brass sounds, which can be blended together with the vocal effects.
One of the attributes of the VP-770 is its SuperNATURAL brass engine, enabling authentic performance never achieved before in a keyboard. Control every sound and element of the performance, including ensemble part levels, pan assignments, and EQ settings for each instrument, plus performance nuance such as Growl, Noise, Stability, and more.
Time Saver, Money Saver
The VP-770 is ideal for musicians who perform alone or in small groups, and who need an interactive, real-time backing chorus. It's also great for film and TV music composers who are challenged with time and budget can use the VP-770 to generate high-impact choral arrangements on the spot. Churches in need of a choir (or choir enhancer) will love the VP-770. The creative possibilities are vast, as are the savings in time and money that this instrument can provide.
Classic to Cutting-Edge
Whether you're cranking out classical choirs or cutting-edge sounds, the VP-770 delivers. For modern flavours, it's equipped with high-resolution vocoder modeling that can be used to generate surreal vocal effects - great for electronica, pop, R&B, hip-hop, and so on. Inject a dose of "robot voice" charm into your next recording without the hassle and expense of a separate vocoder.
