From Our Research Team:
The Gigging Keyboardist's Dream!Hey gigging keyboardists, the V-Combo VR-700 is the one you've been waiting for! This sleek, stage-ready instrument puts all the classic sounds you want, right into one portable (and surprisingly affordable!) keyboard. The V-Combo VR-700 offers up a legendary Virtual Tone Wheel organ sound, complete with dedicated harmonic bars. Plus, there's a 76-key waterfall keyboard, so you can nail smooth glissandos, while hanging onto enough keys for splits. Roland knows that you need more than first-class organ sounds. That's why you'll find grand piano, EP, strings, brass, synth lead sounds, and more — all in your V-Combo VR-700.
Why haul a heavy, multi-keyboard rig around when you can gig with the V-Combo VR-700 and have it all? Like we said, with the variety and quality of sounds inside this keyboard, it's the one-stop choice for your stage performances. Realistic organ sounds? In there, and with those nine dedicated harmonic bars, rotary-speaker simulation, amp models, and even Active Amp Enhancer — all to give you a natural playing experience that feels (and sounds) like the real deal.
All the essential ensemble sounds you want are in here too. You'll find vintage electric piano, clav, harpsichord, choir, basses, strings, brass, and much more. As you'd expect from Roland, there's also a supreme grand piano sound inside the V-Combo VR-700 that they derived from their top-selling digital stage pianos.
If you're gigging solo, the V-Combo VR-700 is also designed for you. You can plug in a USB memory key loaded up with WAV, AIFF, MP3, or SMF files and instantly trigger your backing tracks. In fact, you can use that USB port to back up your patch settings and favorites externally. That way, you can carry your settings from V-Combo to V-Combo and recall them, should you need to. Last not least, the V-Combo VR-700 sports a built-in rhythm-pattern generator. You can jam with 51 onboard rhythm patterns that span styles from funk to rock to swing jazz to Latin pop — and beyond.
When you're ready to step up your gigging keyboard rig, the V-Combo VR-700 stage keyboard is the way to go. It has the sounds you need inside it plus a gig-friendly 76-key size and a light 35 lb. weight.

Oh So Good!!!
by Pepe Escobar from San Antonio, TexasI've had this keyboard for a month and I'm STILL on the honeymoon!!! The BEST all in one keyboard out there, and I've been looking. It's replaced my Hammond XB2, Kurzweil PC2 and a couple rack modules... read more [+]. Plus, it fits in the case I used for the Kurzweil!!! I LOVE this thing!!! Except....

The biggest improvement would be a decent size display with more info. It would be nice to be able to read what patch is called up instead of trying to remember numbers (QUICK- - - #176???)
Another improvement would be an 11-pin Leslie connector. I have a Leslie 147, 145 and 860 that I would love to hook this to, BUT NOOOOO!!!
All said, I still love this thing (replacing 2 keyboards and a rack is enough). It has all the meat and taters I need (for now). close [-]
Not your father's VR 760...
by WESLEY NAGY from Martha's Vineyard, MAHaving worn out 2 of the VR 700's predecessors, (VR 760), I bought the VR 700 sight unseen. It has been religiously reliable and has great usable gigging sounds. The keyboard (waterfall) doesn't suffe... read more [+]r from the 'displacement' problem of the VR760 and is more robust.Several things that were great in the 760 not on the 700: ability to switch leslies speeds with the v-beam, having a screen(?WTF) ability to change effects (phase, chorus, delay) on the fly, ability to alter rhodes sounds, and access to transpose easily(again WTF). Better on the 700: Piano sounds much better (but not as good as the RD700nx which we just bought) it is a tad lighter (one handed carrying is a breeze) the organ seems a bit better (hard to quantify why?!) but still lacks alot of the editting capablilites of the VK or VR760, again WTF...

All in all, still my favourite single go-to keyboard for bar gigs. (I used a Kurzweil PC3 after I killed off my last VR760 and HATED the action on it[PC3]-probably the reason my carpal tunnel flared up again...) If you are looking for a robust lightweight organ, with adequate piano , rhodes, and clavinet (for those Stevie Wonder covers) this does it in spades, and it has balanced XLR outs which is wonderful for QSC speakers or going right into your mixing board! Roland nearly got this one right. 4.5 stars (PS-Roland, call me if you need me to help design your next 'do everything' gigging keyboard...) close [-]
Roland VR 700
by Rockinjoe from Western NYI have had this for 5 days and I love it! The organ on this thing is at least as good as the one on my KORG CX-3, without the screechiness in the higher notes! The overdrive function is superior as we... read more [+]ll. Add to that the remarkable RD pianos and the ton of other sounds and Roland has a winner here. As with any keyboard, there are some drawbacks....the EP's and brass could certainly have been better, individual EQ on the sounds would have been very helpful, and more controllable parameters would have been welcome as well. But this board is so awesome otherwise I would buy it all over again! It is handsome and rugged, in a total metal case...top and bottom, with the exception of the wooden endcaps. close [-]

Almost perfect... Almost
by Steven Gasiecki from Mansfield, OhioI've had my V-Combo for over a month now and have used it quite a lot live. The organ is dead on, period. Rotary and percussion are quite good and extremely tweak able to your liking. Electric pianos,... read more [+] especially variations 1 and 2 are very nice. Strings and pads are ok, as a theorist of the built in tones. The Other bank is a nicety with a healthy choice of meat and potato sounds if you choose to only use this board live. The reason I give it 4 stars and not 5 are the piano sounds. They lack the brightness I have heard in other Roland piano samples. I run my stuff through the Bose L1 Compact and every other sound I put through it sounds crystal clear other than the VR pianos.

I didn't buy it for the pianos. I bought it for the organ primarily and the electric pianos secondarily, so I'm not overly concerned. What does disappoint me is the lack of controller functionality. I also use a Fantom, V-Synth GT, V-Synth XT, and a Receptor. It would be wonderful if I could have the VR control the rack mounts and also turn the Fantom I to a Fantom XR, but I have yet to get the VR to be able to control different patch arrangements on different favorites buttons because the midi assignments are system wide, not per patch as they should be.
Maybe I am missing something. If so, would someone please set me straight?!
Thanks! close [-]
I would have to say that this is one of the best virtual organs avaialble today. Not only do you get great organs, you also get tons of other sounds that are exclusively available from Sweetwater. They're layered, split, and effected to Sweetwater specs.
