Three top-level sound engines cover all the bases

Combining Roland’s acclaimed Virtual Tone Wheel organ engine with SuperNATURAL-powered instruments and classic synths, the V-Combo VR-730 will never leave you wanting for sounds. Whether you need a classic whirling organ (complete with leakage and click noise), a glossy EP, or an old-school SH-2 analog synth, you’ve got it all — and right at your fingertips. What’s more, there’s a whole host of cool effects onboard the VR-730 to flesh out your tones, including compression, overdrive, amp emulators, phasers, and rotary cabinet emulators, including a cool Twin-Rotary effect.

Packed with the performance options you need

Whether you’re rocking one of the V-Combo VR-730’s classic synths or putting its Virtual Tone Wheel organ through its paces, you’ll be delighted by the sheer usefulness of its front panel controls. A set of nine harmonic tone bars gives you all of the organ control you could ask for, and there are dedicated control sections for the VR-09’s piano, synth, effects, and other sections, all bolstered by a large LCD screen. Then there’s the D-BEAM optical controller and a 73-note keybed that’s fast and responsive enough for any serious organ player.
