If you live for performing live, check out the Roland VR-09 V-Combo, a portable 61-key performance keyboard packed with top-notch sounds, real-time controls, and more for the gigging musician. The VR-09 V-Combo puts all the most-used features front and center, so that while on stage, you can focus on your playing rather than your gear. Dedicated piano, organ, and synth sound engines, which are organized in three blocks on the front panel, supply a steady source of Roland tones, while a full lineup of expressive controls -- sliders, knobs, and buttons -- are at the ready to shape your sound. Use its fully stocked drum section to add much-needed rhythm, take advantage of the onboard looper to create backing tracks and more, and you have all that you could need for a show. You supply the talent, and the VR-09 V-Combo supplies the means to express it.

Learn more about the VR-09 with this video from Roland:


Intuitive to Use, Quick to Set Up

Thanks to its smart interface, the VR-09 V-Combo is easy to use and quick to set up and play. On the front panel, a large, clear LCD screen and big knob for scrolling through parameters provide instant access to the piano, organ, and synth sound engines. The other sections -- D-Beam, EFX, and Drum -- that lie on either side of the display feature hands-on controls that are pretty much self explanatory. Adjust the real-time, expressive controls as you play, and you'll have the keyboard figured out in no time.

A single twist of a knob is all it takes to shape your sound with seven simultaneous effects, including rotary, delay, reverb, tone, overdrive, compressor, and customizable MFX. When you've got all your settings in place, save them in the VR-09 V-Combo's user settings for instant recall during a performance.

The option to run the keyboard on AC or battery power makes it even more mobile and convenient.

Rich Acoustic and Electric Pianos

Every keyboard needs some quality piano sounds, and the VR-09 V-Combo doesn't disappoint. Roland's stereo multisampling technology ensures that every note on the 61-key performance keyboard sounds as rich and vibrant as an acoustic grand piano, when in grand piano mode. When your music calls for something else, perhaps a jazzy type of piano, you can play a number of popular vintage electric piano sounds as well, along with cool effects such as vintage phaser and tremolo. Using the "big knob" you can apply the compressor to the piano sounds and ensure that your piano comes through loud and clear over even the noisiest drums and guitars.

Fully Stocked Organ Section

Roland's SuperNATURAL technology drives the instrument's classic tonewheel organs, ensuring that they sound just as awesome as their piano counterparts. Nine harmonic bars (sliders) make it easy to control your performance in real time, while the keyboard's sensitivity and quick response let you play with trills, glissando, percussive hits, sputters, and other classic organ techniques.

In addition, the VR-09 V-Combo features a transistor-type organ with a 1960s vibe, plus rotary speaker and amp simulators that recreate the characteristics of vintage organ speaker cabinets and overdriven tube circuits. A "Twin Rotary" option lends your organ tone a deep, aggressive effect for in-your-face organ playing.

Synth Tones from Vintage to Modern

Switch to the synth side of the keyboard and you'll tap in to sounds from vintage analog synthesizers, adding '80s synth brass, modern digital sounds, Juno strings, and more to your performance. All synth tones are fully editable in real time, of course, via the front-panel controllers, and ADR and cutoff/resonance can be adjusted via the sliders in the Organ block. You can also use effects such as "Bit Crash" to generate dubstep-ready modern synth voices.

Edit Sounds on Your iPad

Roland's free VR-09 Editor app for iPad provides even more control options to iPad-toting keyboardists, on stage and off. The app gives you extra control of the organ and synth sound engines, allowing you to edit organ sounds, customize vintage tonewheel characteristics, and access synth sounds to build custom tones and layers. You can go wireless and set up the VR-09 V-Combo and iPad with Roland Wireless Connect, or you can link up with a USB cable via Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit.

Features:

- Professional 61-key keyboard with ideal for live performances
- Acoustic and electric piano sounds, including grand piano with 88-note stereo multi-sampling
- SuperNATURAL-powered Virtual Tone Wheel organ with 9 harmonic bars, plus transistor-type '60s organ tone

Product Description

Travel-ready, affordable, and outfitted with top-level Roland sounds, the V-Combo VR-09 is the ideal all-in-one solution for performing keyboard players. Dedicated piano, organ, and synth sound engines--organized in three intuitive blocks on the front panel -- provide all the essential tones you need, right under your fingertips. The powerful real-time controls give you maximum expression on stage, with nine sliders for tone shaping and a large array of knobs and buttons for tweaking the seven simultaneous effects and various parameters. Other great features include an onboard looper, a drum section stocked with a library of rhythms for practice and jamming, and more. With its versatile sound selection, inspiring operation, and smart user interface, the V-Combo VR-09 is a dream come true for gigging musicians.

Intuitive Operation for Peak Performance

The V-Combo VR-09 was designed from the ground up with the needs of live players in mind. An intuitive front-panel layout and clear LCD screen offers quick access to Roland's top piano, organ, and synth sound engines, along with plenty of real-time controls for expressive tone manipulation. Seven simultaneous effects include rotary, delay, reverb, tone, overdrive, compressor, and customizable MFX, with dedicated knobs that tweak multiple parameters with a single twist for powerful sound shaping with minimal effort. The smart interface makes it simple to set up splits and layers on the fly, and to save all your keyboard settings in user memory locations for instant recall on stage.

Pro Acoustic and Electric Pianos

Piano is a cornerstone sound for live playing, and the V-Combo VR-09 is filled with a wide selection for covering all musical styles. The gorgeous acoustic grand piano features 88-note stereo multi-sampling, delivering pro-level tone that rivals Roland's dedicated stage pianos. Many popular vintage E. Piano sounds are onboard as well, along with complimentary effects such as vintage phaser and tremolo. The compressor--accessible via a dedicated, easy-to-reach knob--transparently boosts the level of the piano sounds, ensuring that your playing always cuts through when performing in loud bands.

World-Class Organs

Roland's renowned SuperNATURAL technology powers the V-Combo VR-09's classic tonewheel organs, while nine harmonic bars provide authentic real-time performance control. A recently developed transistor-type organ is also included, offering the unique sound of combo instruments from the 1960s. The 61-note keyboard has an extremely fast response, perfect for essential 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 astounding realism, while a "Twin Rotary" option delivers a deep, aggressive effect never before heard.

Vintage and Modern Synth Tones

The V-Combo VR-09 is packed with a ton of ready-to-play synthesizer sounds, from vintage analog 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 ADR and cutoff/resonance adjustment with the harmonic bars in the ORGAN block. Onboard effects like "Bit Crash" provide the ability to create modern synth voices for current dance music, including dubstep.

VR-09 EDITOR for iPad

The free VR-09 Editor app for iPad gives you powerful, intuitive control of the organ and synth sound engines via your tablet's full-color touchscreen interface. Quickly edit organ sounds and customize vintage tonewheel characteristics such as leakage, click noise, and rotary speed, and easily access synth sounds to build custom tones and layers. After tweaking sounds at home, you can take your iPad to the gig and use the app for extra real-time control on stage. Convenient, cable-free communication between the V-Combo VR-09 and iPad is simple to set up with Roland Wireless Connect. Alternately, you can link up with a USB cable via Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit.

4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing keyboard"
Overall: If you need to be able to switch from organ to synth to piano all in one keyboard without having to deal with files and pages, this is the board to get. In my humble opinion the Hammond/leslie sounds are the best I've heard....and all without having to haul a 500 pound B3 around.
Style of Music: Christian, Progressive Rock, blues....

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Liked it so much I bought another"
Overall: The VR-09 is a perfect fit for the band I'm in right now. It works and sounds so good I bought another one. So my stage rig is now two VR-09's, an On-Stage Z stand with a Samson MDR624 Mixer and two EV ZLX-15P Speakers.
Style of Music: Classic rock
