Roland V-Combo VR-730 Performance Keyboard Released
The Roland VR-730 73-note waterfall keyboard finds itself well suited to the more traditionally orientated player. If expressive articulation and technique heavy playing are your bag, the VR-730 is the ideal candidate. With its exceptional response, the VR-730 responds remarkably well to techniques like trills, sputters and glissando.
Those who play live gigs often favour a simplistic, no-nonsense operation. As such the Roland V-Combo VR-730 features touch access to a selection of different sounds and settings including organ, acoustic/electric piano and synth engines. Each of these settings is arranged into three distinct panel sections, making navigating your live sound easier than you could ever imagine.
Featuring a Virtual Tone Wheel Organ engine, the VR-730 can effectively recreate the sound of a genuine tone wheel organ. With nine harmonic bars and intuitive control features, the VR-730 utilises Roland's expert handle on technology to replicate the exact tonal properties of its imitation.
The VR-730 is adept at replicating different historic pianos, taking a number of inspired presets off the back of the famed RD-2000. Additionally, the VR-730 features a number of vintage effects to complement a classic 'vintage' sound. Featuring an integrated acoustic grand piano setting completed with 88-note stereo multisampling, the VR-730, is well versed in a number of different musical styles and genres. With an even further selection of SuperNATURAL synthesizer presets, the VR-730 can recreate anything from analog classics to more modern-day digital synths.
