The Roland VR-09-B V-Combo Keyboard offers an extensive range of sounds to the gigging musician. The VR-09-B features three sound engines that produce authentic synth, organ and piano tones. The lightweight, durable keyboard is easily transported between venues making it ideal for touring and working musicians. Musicians have a choice of 245 voices including organs, synths and pianos that will suit every style. The 61 keys unweighted keys are velocity sensitive for more nuanced playing. The VR-09-B's intuitive control panel allows easy edits and tweaks to your sound whilst on stage.

Pro Acoustic & Electric Pianos For Live Performance

The dedicated piano, organ and synth engines contain a huge range of essential sounds, perfect for creative musicians. The beautiful acoustic grand piano features 88-note stereo multi sampling and delivers professional level piano sound that rivals Roland's dedicated stage pianos. There are also a full host of vintage E.Piano sounds with complementary effects including vintage phaser and tremolo. An easy to reach knob activates the compressor which boosts the sounds so it cuts through even the loudest band.

World Class Organ Sounds

Roland's SuperNATURAL technology powers the VR-09-B's tonewheel organs with nine harmonic bars providing instant performance control. A newly developed transistor-type organ offers the unique sound of combo instruments from the 1960s. The keyboard has an extremely fast response perfect for organ techniques such as trill, sputter, glissando, and percussive hits. Rotary speaker and amp simulators reproduce the characteristics of vintage organ speaker cabinets and overdriven tube circuits with impressive realism and a new Twin Rotary option delivers a unique, deep and aggressive effect.

Vintage & Modern Synth Tones

The V-Combo VR-09-B is packed with synthesizer sounds, from vintage analogue classics like JUNO strings and '80s synth brass to textured, modern-era digital tones and beyond. Front panel controllers allow you to tweak the synth tones intuitively in real time, including convenient ADSR and cutoff/resonance adjustment with the harmonic bars from the organ block. Effects like Bit Crash help you create modern sounds for current dance music genres including Dubstep.

Intuitive Operation For Expressive Stage Performance

The V-Combo's layout is especially designed for live performances. The sound engines are organised in three easy to reach blocks on the front panel alongside a clear LCD screen, allowing for easy access when performing, especially useful on dark stages. You have full control over your sound with nine sliders and an array of knobs and buttons for tweaking effects and parameters such as rotary, delay, reverb, tone, overdrive, compressor, and a customisable MFX section. The smart interface also makes it simple to set up splits and layers on the fly, and to save all your keyboard settings in the user memory for instant recall during gigs.

Free VR-09-B iPad Editor For Editing Sounds

Roland's free VR-09-B iPad Editor app for iPad gives you extra control of the organ and synth sounds using your iPad's touchscreen. Edit, customise vintage tonewheel characteristics such as leakage, click noise and rotary speed. Take your iPad to a gig and use the app for real time controls on stage. Convenient, cable-free communication between the V-Combo VR-09-B and iPad is simple to set up with Roland Wireless Connect. You can also link up with a USB cable via Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit.
