Heavyweight vintage sound made light
The days of lugging an acoustic piano, Hammond organ or Rhodes piano are thankfully behind us but some units may not imitate the great subtlety's that made these vintage instruments so appealing. The V-Combo VR-09-B packs in some of Roland's best technology to ensure that you get rich and expressive grand piano, warm and snappy vintage e.piano's and spine tingling tone-wheel replication along with 3 modes of rotary speaker.
Whilst the V-Combo VR-09-B gives you over 250 premium quality sounds, Roland have made it so that operation on stage is simple and intuitive so you can concentrate on your playing. Its smart, organised front-panel layout features a clear LCD screen as well as dedicated knobs for real time effects so that you don't have to trawl through menu's. The registration banks also mean you can store up to 100 different customised instruments for instant recall on stage.
Looping and rhythm functionality
The V-Combo VR-09-B packs in a built in looper to record 20 seconds of crystal clear audio to loop, this is a great feature for solo performers as is the built in 52 rhythm patterns which also make for great tracks to jam along with when practising.
As you would expect from a V-Combo model you get masses of control including assignable D-Beam, pitch, modulation, 10 x drawbars and effects manipulation for real time expressiveness. Equally as impressive is the connectivity offering master and headphone outs, auxiliary input, pedals and USB for storage and playback as well as connectivity to a computer.
Finally, Roland have a bespoke iOS app that allows for deep editing of your organs with a lavish but user friendly interface. The Roland V-Combo VR-09-B Live Performance Keyboard will enrich your performances to no end, take vintage charm and cutting edge superNATURAL synths with you anywhere in one lightweight unit.
