Roland release the VP-03, a smaller, more compact version of the renowned VP-330 with added features. Fans of the original VP-330 Vocoder Plus will appreciate the fact Roland have retained all the intricacies and aspects that made the original one of the most popular vocoders of all time when creating the VP-03 - a miniature version of this highly sought after vocoder. The newest addition to the Roland Boutique series, the VP-03 fuses the synthesised sound and the human voice effortlessly, to bring you that same influential sound with modern updates that bring this instrument into the modern age.

The VP-03 retains the VP-330’s key features such as vocoder, human voice and strings sound sources on board, and comes complete with a gooseneck microphone. When you pair the unit the optional K-25m Keyboard Unit, you can achieve that highly sought after VP-330 sound, yet in a highly portable and more budget friendly setup. The modern features will be well received by fans of the original model as they provide a new dimension without taking away from the original aesthetic or sound. The 16 Chord Memory setups and Voice Step Sequencer offer greater creativity and an even greater opportunity for you to sculpt your sound.

New features for the modern musician

Roland have provided the modern musician with a host of new features including the new Voice Step Sequencer which enables the user to input a single note, chord or even your voice into each of the 16 steps. In addition, this feature gives you the freedom to articulate your sound even more as each of those steps can comprise up to six notes. You can even save your favourite sequences to your computer via USB and the backup/restore function.

Chord Memory Function

The VP-03 also includes a new Chord Memory function which allows the user to play back centre chords with only finger. You can use any of the 16 locations available and store then recall each chord of your choice using one of the 16 step buttons. The geniuses at Roland have also built in a feature which allows you to create your own chords and save them in any of these locations, opening up the musical possibilities.

Connect your gear

Not only can you connect your supplied gooseneck mic to sample any sound you want via the full size XLR mic input, but you can also connect the VP-03 to a variety of different devices via the MIDI IN/OUT ports or the built in Micro-B USB connection that can talk to audio and MIDI data instantly. The unit also functions as a high-quality 24-bit/96 kHz audio interface, which makes it a great way to record directly into the DAW of your choice. Whether it’s that infamous “talking robot” sound you love from the original VP-330, or you want the freedom to shape your synth sounds with the human voice, the Roland VP-03 is the only option.
