Realistic ToneWheel Sound And Feel!
The VK-88 Combo Organ is the ultimate instrument for players who crave the most authentic organ sound and feel. This gorgeous double-manual instrument incorporates Roland's advanced "Virtual ToneWheel" organ sound with COSM Amp and Rotary Speaker Modeling - plus waterfall keyboards that play just like a classic organ. A D Beam with multicolored LED gives players enhanced real-time control, while two additional harmonic bars and Active Expression let players blend in other instrument tones.
Even the most sophisticated organ aficionado will revel in the beautifully designed VK-88. Its gorgeous wooden cabinet captures the look of a classic, while the traditional panel layout - with nine harmonic bars per manual (upper/lower), two harmonic bars for the pedal part, and two additional harmonic bars for Orchestral Tones - gives players intuitive control of the organ sound. Dual waterfall keyboards with quick-firing keys make it possible to play using traditional organ techniques like glissandos.
Advanced Virtual ToneWheel Sound
The VK-88's organ sounds are based on the same advanced Virtual ToneWheel sound engine used in the acclaimed VK-8 Combo Organ. Players can choose from four authentic tone wheel types - Vintage 1, Vintage 2, Solid and Clean - and then further adjust the sound using the harmonic bars. The VK-88 even lets players adjust the leakage level and click sound - just like the organs of yesteryear!
