Travel-Ready 61-Note Keyboard with All the Sounds You Need

Lightweight, affordable, and outfitted with top-level Roland sounds, the V-Combo VR-09-B is the ideal all-in-one solution for performing keyboard players. Dedicated organ, acoustic/electric piano, and synth engines are organized in three sections on the front panel, providing fingertip access to the essential tones you need for covering any music style. Powerful real-time controls give you maximum expression on stage, with hands-on sliders for tone shaping and a large array of knobs and buttons for tweaking the seven simultaneous effects and numerous other parameters. With its versatile sounds, smart user interface, and highly mobile design, the V-Combo VR-09-B is a dream come true for gigging musicians.

Gig-Ready and Easy to Carry

Vintage gear is great, but it’s 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 very bulky and difficult for one person to move. The VR-09-B includes all these sounds and more in an instrument that weighs just 12 lb. 3 oz./5.5 kg, so it’s a breeze to transport and even easier to set up. And with support for battery operation, the VR-09-B 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-09-B 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. It’s 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-09-B, you’re able to deliver authentic organ performances with all the tonal characteristics of revered vintage combo organs. Roland’s 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-09-B’s 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 the VR-09-B 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 Roland’s dedicated stage pianos. The VR-09-B’s 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-09-B 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 Roland’s 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.

Sleek and Durable Design, Ready for the Stage

The VR-09-B offers a streamlined appearance and rugged design that will stand up to years of gigging in town and on the road. The control panel’s matte finish hides fingerprints for a clean and tidy look, and also eliminates harsh reflections from stage lighting that can reduce visibility.
