Superb Sound Quality
The G-70 is equipped with Roland's most powerful sound engine ever. With a lightning-fast processor, stellar soundset, 128-voice polyphony, and six realtime performance parts, the G-70 takes sound and performance to new levels of realism. The G-70 uses the largest internal wave ROM in Roland keyboard history - 192 MB - and brings together the most coveted collection of instruments for songwriters and performers. It also boasts one of the latest and most expressive pianos from Roland, derived from the famous Fantom-X series. The G-70's soundset can be further expanded via Roland's SRX library.
The keyboard on the G-70 features a superb weighted professional action with aftertouch, which has a longer stroke and a more natural, responsive feel. Whether you've selected a grand piano, classical guitar, or an accordion sound, you'll be delighted with the nuance and sensitivity that can be coaxed from this keyboard. Organ players can also tap into the expressive power of the G-70 thanks to its authentic Virtual ToneWheel technology ported from Roland's popular VK organ range. Nine front-panel sliders correspond to the 3D animated Virtual Harmonic Bars on the G-70's full-color LCD, providing the feel and response of a real harmonic-bar organ.
From jazz and pop ensembles to full-scale classical orchestrations, the G-70 puts a concert's worth of sound under your fingertips. The built-in arranger section includes 285 completely new styles that exploit the full potential of the powerful sound engine. Many of these styles have been recorded using live studio musicians to create top-quality professional backings. The G-70 also includes the Cover and Makeup Tools from the DisCover™ series, allowing you to customize instantly any part of your style or song. For added realism, the innovative "Adaptive Chord Voicing" (ACV) Technology enables each accompaniment instrument to play smooth, musically pleasing lines, instead of jumping to awkward intervals each time the chord is changed.
The G-70 offers a powerful lineup of vocal assistant features, including the Vocal Harmonist, with over 90 settings and effects such as Auto Pitch Correct and Vocoder. There are seven independent effects blocks on the G-70, including dedicated sections for the Harmonic Bars, Harmonist, and the External Audio Input. Mastering tools are included for creating polished, professional mixes. Moreover the G-70's full-color LCD provides easy navigation for performance, and can display 4-stave music scores, chord charts, and lyrics. Chord and lyric data even be viewed on an external TV screen using the video output. The G-70 lets you get personal with your sounds and compositions. Its full 16-track sequencer and internal style composer can be edited in precise detail using the Microscope edit functions, and every sound can be sculpted and saved to your specification. But for those who appreciate technological assistance, the G-70 is loaded with features such as the Music Assistant database, which automatically selects musically correct sounds, styles, tempos, and effects for the hundreds of music titles. The Quick Search and Finder features help expedite the process of finding specific songs, sounds, and styles. For fast and easy file exchange, data backup, and MIDI transfer to PC, a USB connector is provided. The G-70 also provides a large 50MB internal memory (Solid State Disk), a floppy disk drive, and a memory card slot that supports many current devices, such as Smart Media and Compact Flash.Roland G-70 Arranger Keyboard Features:
