Roland Ships VR-760 Performance KeyboardIncorporates piano, synth, organ sounds and variety of expressive controllers
The VR-760 is designed to give keyboard players access to the best organ, piano and synthesizer sounds. The organ sounds are derived from Roland's VK-Series Combo Organs. Onboard COSM Amp and Rotary Speaker Modeling complements the organ sounds, while the VR-760's waterfall keyboard captures the feel of a vintage organ.
For pianos, the VR-760 takes its lead from Roland's FP- and RD-Series instruments. Everything from expressive acoustic grand pianos to bright pop pianos are included -- bolstered by COSM Mic Modeling for improved ambience and tone. The VR-760 also sports a new selection of electric pianos with COSM Amp Modeling for classic "suitcase" and "stage" sounds, which Roland says are "the best electric piano sounds Roland has ever offered."
The VR-760's synthesizer section has a maximum 128-voice polyphony. Sounds are set up into Tone categories and can be directly edited via front-panel knobs. Two SRX expansion slots are included for customizing the VR-760's sounds.
The VR-760 also incorporates a variety of expressive controllers. With the D Beam, players can adjust functions like rotary speed, octave or glide using an infrared light beam.
Active Expression makes it possible to slowly fade in a layered sound using an optional expression pedal. And with V-LINK, musicians can trigger video clips from the keyboard when used with the Edirol DV-7PR Digital Video Workstation (sold separately).
Connections to the VR-760 include stereo 1/4-inch outputs, stereo XLR outputs, Control Pedal and Expression Pedal inputs, a Hold Pedal jack, stereo Headphone jack, and MIDI In/Out/Pedal In jacks.
