This stage keyboard feature's the company's Virtual Tone Wheel organ, full 88-key multi-sampled piano and pro synthesizer sounds.
Using Roland''s Virtual Tone Wheel engine, the V-Combo simulates the unique structure and distinctive sound of vintage organs. The new amplifier and rotary simulator reproduces the sound needed for jazz, rock, funk or gospel, while the 76-key waterfall action captures the feel of a vintage organ. Add an optional PK-25 or PK-7A pedalboard for a more console/organ-type feel.
In addition to the 10 harmonic bars on the front panel, the V-Combo also incorporates a variety of expressive controllers. 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 ¼-inch outputs make the V-Combo ready for any stage, while the USB port and Song Player function allows for direct playback and control of backing tracks from USB memory. Keyboardists can also back up and recall Favorites and system settings from USB memory.
The V-Combo VR-700 is now available with a suggested retail price of $2,329.
