  • Light and mobile; battery or AC power
  • Pro-quality acoustic and electric pianos, including grand piano with 88-note stereo multi-sampling
  • SuperNATURAL®-powered Virtual Tone Wheel organ with nine harmonic bars, plus newly developed transistor-type ‘60s organ tone
  • Wide range of synth tones, from vintage classics to modern essentials
  • Seven simultaneous effects with dedicated real-time controls
  • Looper and built-in rhythm patterns; WAV/MP3/SMF song playback via optional USB memory
  • Free VR-09 Editor app available for iPad

Intuitive Operation for Expressive Stage Performance
The V-Combo VR-09 was designed from the ground up with the needs of live players in mind. An intuitive front-panel layout and clear LCD screen offers quick access to Roland’s top piano, organ, and synth sound engines, along with plenty of real-time controls for expressive tone manipulation. Seven simultaneous effects include rotary, delay, reverb, tone, overdrive, compressor, and customizable MFX, with 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 user memory locations for instant recall on stage.

Pro Acoustic and Electric Pianos
Piano is a cornerstone sound for live playing, and the V-Combo VR-09 is filled with a wide selection for covering all musical styles. The gorgeous acoustic grand piano features 88-note stereo multi-sampling, delivering pro-level tone 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
Roland’s renowned 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 a ton of ready-to-play synthesizer sounds, from vintage analog 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 ADR and cutoff/resonance adjustment with the harmonic bars in the ORGAN block. Onboard effects like “Bit Crash” provide the ability to create modern synth voices for current dance music, including dubstep.

VR-09 Editor for iPad
The free VR-09 Editor app for iPad gives you powerful, intuitive control of the organ and synth sound engines via your tablet’s full-color touchscreen interface. Quickly edit organ sounds and customize 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. Alternately, you can link up with a USB cable via Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit.

    Comments about Roland V-Combo Vr-09 Live Performance Keyboard:

    Hi Friends, we love this organ-etc. We don't really know what to call it because the piano sounds great but so do the horns and strings and chorus and drum beats and all the many beautiful sounds this instrument makes- and are built in ready to play. It was the only keyboard that we could find that did not require a computer hooked up to make nice sounds. But its an organ too with a built in Leslie rotating speaker simulator and real drawbars-which only works on organ setting- but sounds great. We hooked this keyboard up thru a Yamaha MG10 mixer and into a pair of new Resolve 8" monitors. We demo'd the keyboard at the store on Resolv 6" monitors and they sounded great but we are glad we upgraded to the 8" monitors because the bass was now much more richer and fuller. Best value so far for an organ+ with a Leslie simulator and under $1k. Roland VR-09


    Underrated... this board is a little workhorse!

    Comments about Roland V-Combo Vr-09 Live Performance Keyboard:

    I use this keyboard as my second keyboard above my weighted keys piano. Super portable, with some stand out electric pianos and synth sounds. Though editing is limited, by layering sounds using the basic on board editing and adding on board effects, I have been more than satisfied with the sounds that have come out of it. The VR-09 is probably the best value in terms of being an all-in-one (PIANO/ORGAN/SYNTH) keyboard for the money. Despite being more of a budget board, don't be fooled... the sound set offers decent sounds in the most commonly used sound categories As well, it's a solid B3 clone wheel organ with a good rotary simulation.Weaker aspects: limited editing and cheaper, shallow feeling keys. Strengths: amazingly portable and light weight, great sounds including drawbar organ, and value priced.
