From Our Research Team:
Amazing Sounds and Expression PossibilitiesThe Roland V-Synth GT builds on the original V-Synth, which is renowned by performers and sound designers alike for its expressive synthesis and sound design capabilities. The next-generation V-Synth GT merges the company's innovative Elastic Audio Engine with the Articulative Phrase Synthesis technology to form a new synth with ultra-realistic sounds and amazing expression capabilities. Features such as speed programming, Articulative Phrase Synthesis, and powerful analog modeling ability allow you to break sonic boundaries and create never-before-heard sounds with the Roland V-Synth GT!

Roland V-Synth GT at a Glance:
Multiple forms of advanced synthesis
By integrating a new dual core V-Synth engine, the V-Synth GT can combine Elastic Audio Synthesis, Vocal Designer technology, and AP-SYNTHESIS in real time. Roland's proprietary VariPhrase technology is also integrated into the V-Synth GT. Together with its analog-modeling engine, External Audio input, and digital sampling architecture, the V-Synth GT provides an incredibly wide and colorful foundation on which to capture, manipulate, and create sounds.
New Articulative Phrase Synthesis
The V-Synth GT is the first synthesizer in the world equipped with AP (Articulative Phrase) SYNTHESIS. This revolutionary form of modeling recreates the ever-changing behavior, nuance, and sound of an instrument as it's being played. The results are stunningly expressive and realistic, and can be applied to acoustic instrument simulation as well as new, never-before-heard sounds.
Serious sound designers will love the complexity and editing depth the V-Synth GT, but there are many instances where musicians need fresh sounds fast - and that's the beauty of Sound Shaper II. Based on the original Sound Shaper, this enhanced mode lets you chose a sound type, then it brings the most relevant parameters directly to the surface. You'll be creating new sounds in seconds!
The V-Synth GT is a top-of-the-line instrument. No corners were cut in creating its futuristic yet friendly layout and design. New front-panel features include a color touch-screen with eight universal control knobs, and the addition of dedicated buttons and sliders to make access faster and easier. From top to bottom, front to back, this is an instrument that says "first class."

Very Expressive Synth
by Matt baginski from Philadelphia, PAI purchased this synth as a complementing synth to my Roland Fantom G. Wow was I impressed by the ease of programming and the diversity of sound that can be pulled from this machine. This synth is loa... read more [+]ded with lot's of great controllers for expression and manipulating sounds. I love importing my own sounds and making full-fledged synth patches out of them using the Elastic Audio section. The VA section is top shelf with everything you would ever want in an analog synth and it reminds me of a JP-8000 on steroids. I have not even touched the Vocal Designer section of this synth yet and I have owned it for over 6 months. The effects section is enormous and has everything you would ever need including Amp modeling. The only con of the Vsynth is that it is not expandable but does have 64MB of memory on board. Very powerful, easy to program, lots of controllers, and one beautiful looking synth. Roland has a real sleeper here that most people don't even know about. close [-]

This is the first synth I wanna marry. Haha.
by Marvin Querido from Manila, PhilippinesI've had quite a number of keyboards for the past almost 22 years (at some point in time I've had more than a dozen, not counting the modules), and this is the first synth in a very, very long time th... read more [+]at didn't sound like an improved version of their past synths. This is something else. When I tried the V-Synth GT in the store, I wasn't really planning to get a new keyboard, but it didn't take long until I reserved the unit, and very quickly found a way to afford it.

this is A REALLY great keyboard. IF you don't read any of the manual it may be a little confusing at first but it is really easy to get used to.

soooo many ways to control pretty much any part of your sound live. knobs are great, but the time t p works great (so does the d-beam). aftertouch is smooth and works great with ap synth instruments.
downsides: effects are a little slim, and there is no really good way to make backbeats and tracks like you could on a workstation. I use mine to record and make tracks on ableton, so I can create that stuff on my computer.
a little expensive but still amazing close [-]
A really great synth
by Thom Brennan from Seattle, WA USAA bit pricey, but the GT is simply the most innovative digital synth since the DX7. Highly expressive, and unlike most digital synths- very enjoyable to program and tweak from the front panel. In fact... read more [+]- you wouldnt want it any other way because the color screen is the best interaction I have ever had with a synth. I think of it as a hybrid of just about every major synth engine to date, and while its not a workstation- with some creativity in can be an all in one box system- especially if you do avante garde or experimental music. The AP synthesis creates very expressive leads, and the 2 layers of V-synth engines - each of which can be separated into 16 sounds mapped across the keys- can create very dense walls of living, organic, electric sound.

The arpeggiator is Rolands best, and the new Version 2 free upgrade fixes many of the wish list items I had. The V-synth line deserves a special place in synth history- and hopefully its not over yet. close [-]
