Virtual Tone Wheel Technology
Rolandís acclaimed Virtual Wheel technology is central to the VR-700 V-Combo stage keyboard, complete with four wheel types, nine dedicated harmonic bars, percussion settings, a new rotary-speaker simulator, and amp simulators that reproduce the characteristics of speaker cabinets and tube circuits. With five amp types onboard, and with adjustable gain, you can transform your organ tone from warm and smooth to full-impact overdrive.
VR-700 -Expressive Organ Performance
The 76-note, velocity-sensitive waterfall keyboard provides fast action and comfort ó great for glissando and quick, repetitive strokes. The dedicated harmonic bars let you modify the organ sound naturally in real time, while the D Beam can be used for wheel brakes, ring modulation, spring shock, pitch, filter, and volume. The pitch lever can be used to change the speed of the rotary speaker. You can also split the keyboard to simulate a two-manual setup, and add a pedal board (Roland PK-25A or PK-7A, optional). The front-panel buttons illuminate so you can easily see the controls on dark stages.
VR-700 - Supreme Grand Piano
In addition to its world-class organ emulation, the V-Combo stage keyboard has a gorgeous grand piano onboard. Derived from Rolandís top-selling digital stage pianos, the V-Comboís piano engine is based on 88-key stereo multi-sampling, with every note captured at multiple velocities in meticulous detail.
The V-Combo stage keyboard is packed with top-quality ensemble sounds, such as vintage electric piano, harpsichord, clav, choir, strings, brass, basses, and more. You can easily split and layer the ensemble sounds with each other or with the organ section; a dedicated Ensemble bar (conveniently coloured red) adjusts the volume of the ensemble section so you can quickly mix between the ensemble and organ tones. Favourite buttons are provided for instantly recalling your favourite sounds onstage.
Generate an entire bandís worth of sound from the VR-700 V-Comboís keyboard by triggering backing tracks directly from USB memory key (accepts WAV, AIFF, MP3, and SMF). The USB port can also be used to back up your patch settings and Favourites externally, making it possible to carry your V-Combo sounds and settings in your pocket.
For skill building and play-along fun, the VR-700 V-Combo stage keyboard has a built-in rhythm-pattern generator. There are 51 rhythm patterns onboard that cover a variety of styles, including funk, rock, swing jazz, Afro-Cuban, and Latin pop.
