Roland V-Combo VR-700 Stage Keyboard Now Shipping
Leading musical instrument manufacturer Roland have begun shipping their organ, piano and synth the V-combo and VR-700.
The new combo features Roland?s acclaimed Virtual Tone Wheel organ, full 88-key multi-sampled piano, and pro synthesizer sounds.
The V-Combo is perfect for players who need an all-in-one keyboard for a variety of musical settings, including houses of worship, stage performances, and rehearsal studios.
Using Roland?s Virtual Tonewheel engine, the V-Combo simulates the unique structure and distinctive sound of vintage organs.
The new amplifier and rotary simulator faithfully reproduces the sound needed for jazz, rock, funk or gospel, while the 76-key waterfall action captures the feel of a vintage organ.
The V-Combo takes its lead from Roland?s popular instruments, including everything from expressive full key multi-sampled acoustic grand pianos, classic electric pianos, to realistic strings, brass, bass and guitar sounds.
The 76 keys can easily layer two ensemble tones together, or layer and split with the organ tones.
In addition to the ten harmonic bars on the front panel, the V-Combo also incorporates a variety of expressive controllers for even more exhilarating performances.
The red harmonic drawbar allows players to control the volume of the Ensemble tones.
With the D Beam, players can create authentic organ-specific effects, such as wheel braking, or perform filter and level tone shaping on ensemble tones using an infrared light beam.
XLR and Ã‚Â¼" outputs make the V-Combo ready for any stage, while the USB port and Song Player function enables direct playback and control of backing tracks from USB memory.
Keyboardists can also back up and recall Favorites and system settings from USB memory, making the V-Combo easy to share at rehearsal studios.Posted on 19 Mar 2010 10:48 to category : Instruments News
