Gig-Ready and Easy to Carry
Vintage gear is great, but its not very practical for the average working keyboard player who needs to travel light. A combo organ, rotary speaker, and electric piano can add up to several hundred pounds, and are verybulky and difficult for one person to move. The VR-09B includes all these sounds and more in an instrument that weighs just 12 lbs. 3 oz./5.5 kg, soits a breeze to transport and even easier to set up. And with support for battery operation, the VR-09B delivers the ultimate mobile convenience for street gigs, weddings, and various on-the-go events.
Hassle-Free Operation for Expressive Freedom On Stage
The VR-09B was designed from the ground up with the needs of live players in mind. Its smart, nicely organized front-panel layout features a clear LCD screen and dedicated organ, piano, and synth sound sections. This gives you direct access to all the essential sounds you need, plus lots of real-time controls for expressive tone manipulation. Seven simultaneous effects include rotary, delay, reverb, tone, overdrive, compressor, and MFX, and the dedicated knobs tweak multiple parameters for powerful sound shaping with minimal effort. Its also simple to set up splits and layers on the fly, and to save all your settings in user memory locations for instant recall on stage.
Authentic Combo Organs with Virtual Tone Wheel Tech
With the VR-09B, youre able to deliver authentic organ performances with all the tonal characteristics of revered vintage combo organs. Rolands latest Virtual Tone Wheel Organ engine faithfully emulates the sound-generating process of a real tone wheel organ in every way, while nine harmonic bars provide classic hands-on tone control. Rotary effects are vital to the combo organ sound, and the VR-09Bs 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.
Anchor Your Music with Essential Electric and Acoustic Pianos
Piano is a cornerstone sound for live playing, and theVR-09B provides a wide selection for covering all musical styles. Many historic electric piano types are on board, along with complementary vintage effects like phaser, tremolo, touch wah, and tape delay. The gorgeous acoustic grand piano features 88-note stereo multi-sampling, delivering pro-level tone that rivals Rolands dedicated stage pianos. The VR-09Bs easy-access compressor effect works great with the piano sounds, ensuring that your playing always cuts through when performing with loud bands and big ensembles.
SuperNATURAL Synth Sounds from Vintage to Modern
The VR-09B is packed with a ton of ready-to-play synths, from Roland analog classics like JUNO strings and JUPITER pads to textured, modern-era digital tones and beyond. There are lots of fat, analog-style lead and bass tones to choose from as well, plus organic 80s-era synth sounds from Rolands famous D-50. The 200-plus sounds cover a wide range of styles and genres, and are organized into dedicated one-touch categories like Lead, Bass, Pad, Strings, and more for fast access.
