Intuitive operation for expressive stage performance
The V-Combo VR-09 was designed with the needs of live players in mind. An intuitive front-panel layout and clear LCD screen lets you quickly select Roland's flagship piano, organ, and synth sounds along with plenty of real-time controls for expressive tone manipulation. The seven simultaneous effects - rotary, delay, reverb, tone, overdrive, compressor, and a customisable MFX section – have 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 the user memory for instant recall on stage.
Pro acoustic and electric pianos for live performance
Piano is a cornerstone sound for live playing, and the V-Combo VR-09 is filled with a wide selection covering all musical styles. The gorgeous acoustic grand piano features 88-note stereo multi-sampling, delivering pro-level piano sound 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 with a keyboard (and drawbars) to match
Roland's SuperNATURAL technology powers the V-Combo VR-09's classic tonewheel organs, while nine harmonic bars provide authentic real-time performance control. A newly 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 new 'Twin Rotary' option delivers a deep, aggressive effect never before heard.
Vintage and Modern Synth Tones
The V-Combo VR-09 is packed with ready-to-play 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' let you get your hands dirty by creating authentic, relevant sounds for current dance music genres, including Dubstep.
Free VR-09 iPad Editor for editing sounds
The free VR-09 Editor app for iPad gives you powerful, intuitive control of the organ and synth sound engines via your iPad's full-colour touchscreen interface. Quickly edit organ sounds and customise 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. You can also link up with a USB cable via Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit.
