Roland V-Combo VR-09 Overview
The V-Combo VR-09B 61-Key Live Performance Keyboard from Roland is a 61-key music workstation designed for use by the gigging musician, both live and in the studio. The dedicated organ, acoustic/electric piano, and synth engines are organized in three sections on the front panel. The VR-09-B includes all these sounds and weighs just 12.1 lb, making it easy to carry and set up. It has seven simultaneous effects that include rotary, delay, reverb, tone, overdrive, compressor, and MFX.
The Virtual Tone Wheel Organ engine emulates the sound-generating process of a real tone wheel organ, while nine harmonic bars provide hands-on tone control. The VR-09B’s three genre-oriented types make it simple to call up the right rotary tone for any style, from gospel and pop to jazz and rock. You can also deepen the sound further with the Twin Rotary effect, add some grit with tube-style overdrive, or call up the ring modulator for a more aggressive sound.
You can expand your sound collection with free downloads from Roland’s Axial Sound Library Site. Roland Wireless Connect enables wireless communication between the VR-09B keyboard and an iPad; alternately, you can link them to each other with a standard USB cable using the appropriate adapter for your specific iPad model.
